Some secrets for a flat stomach

For some women, that pouch around the middle of your stomach is very hard to get rid of, and even harder the older you get which is due to genetics and body build (We are all envy of that girl we know who was born with the perfect stomach!) 

♥ Try and get regular cardio exercise such as running, swimming and even walking
♥ Use Strength training several times a week

Push up and Squats

Try doing push ups and squats, they are said to burn calories faster than your usual crunches. The main thing I have learnt is make sure you are eating healthy, and not eating too many things that are going to put fat on your body like your normal junkfood because it makes it harder for you to get a toner stomach. 


'Abs are not made in the gym, they are made in the kitchen'

Again I need to stress how important your diet is, but when I say diet I don't mean No carbs, low food, and the usual crazy diets you have heard of.  Your diet is just as important as going to the gym, let me give you an example. Say you order a coke for lunch, and a normal coke has about 150 calories in it, to burn off that coke you need to run on the treadmill for about 30 mins and that is 30 mins of hard work just to burn off that one tiny can of coke. 

Cut out these foods from your diet

1. Sugar - Added to most cereals and breakfasts foods and most low fat foods contain a MASS of sugar so make sure you read the label

2. Man made foods-  like your biscuits, packet foods, frozen dinners. Replace them with fresh fruit, vegetables, and other natural goodies

3. Pasta and Bread- the foods that put inches on your waist, in order to get lean you need to cut out these foods, or refrain your self from eating them every day. If that is not going to fit your lifestyle try and eat these foods before 5pm each day, just so you arent sleeping on a full stomach of carbs


I suggest you look up these moves in google and add them to your abs routine.

1. Crunches
2. Bicycle Crunches
3. Sit ups
4. Planks
5. Reverse Crunch
6. Exercise Ball crunches
7. Hanging Knee raises

Also I recommend Pilates, and yoga classes!
