Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to become a gym rat to get healthy. These simple steps can help you eliminate excess weight and bloating from your midsection, which goes a long way toward a healthy body.
Practice Good Posture
When you stand up straight, you naturally engage your core. Core strength is essential for a healthy body. For proper posture, create space between your ears and your shoulders, and drop your shoulders back.
The body hoards water when it doesn’t get enough fluids, which can add a whopping four pounds to your midsection. Try to drink six 8-ounce glasses of water per day.
Use the Bathroom
When you feel the urge to use the restroom, make the time for it. If you get in the habit of putting it off, you can become constipated, which results in bloating.
Enjoy Your Food
Eat your meals slowly and with purpose. Make sure you chew your food properly before you swallow. When your stomach and intestines have to work overtime to break down food, it can lead to gas and indigestion.
Probiotics help your body break down food. This “good bacteria” is present in yogurt, and you can also purchase probiotic supplements. Make sure you get supplements with strains acidophilus and bifidobacterium, and purchase them from a reputable vitamin company.
Walking even just 30 minutes a day can boost your metabolism, and will thus help you take inches off your waist more easily. Walking is better than any type of exercise gadget that is marketed to create “washboard” abs. These gadgets can actually be dangerous, as many force you to move your body in unnatural ways while restricting overall movement.
Don’t Chew Gum
Chewing gum can make you swallow excess air, which will increase your waistline. If you need to freshen your breath, suck on a mint instead.
Take a Supplement
Studies have shown that calcium D-glucarate and B-complex supplements can help your body get rid of excess estrogen. Excreting the hormone decrease your midsection.
Stress can affect your digestive system, which can lead to constipation. Stress also produces more cortisol, which leads to the “fight or flight” response. When your body is in “fight or flight,” the cortisol hormone sends fat to directly to your stomach in an effort to protect your organs. Try to spend at least 20 minutes a day doing something relaxing that you enjoy.
