Want that Flat Tummy
Everybody knows the mantra for losing weight : Eat less, Exercise more. But to get flat abs, u have to do some extra work & also have to change ur eating strategies:
Concentrate on whole grain:
I will favour multi grains. Bran, rice, finger millet, oats & pearl millet have a low glycaemic index (GI), its perfect for weight loss. The soluble fibre in these grains slows down the entry of sugars & fats into ur bloodstream. Obese adults who ate a diet rich in whole grains for 12 weeks lost more ab fat than those who ate refined grains.
Have right fat:
Good sources of healthy fats: Olive or canola oil, avocados, walnuts & flax seed.
The more water rich foods u eat- tomatoes, cucumbers, squashes, gourds, papaya, lettuce, melon & oranges - the smaller ur waist. Calories are low & u feel fuller.
Sip Green Tea:
According to a study, Overweight people who exercised for 3 hours every week lost 8 percent more ab fat by adding a green tea extract to their regimen.
