These 5 simple tips can help flatten your stomach starting today:
- Decrease Salt:
Salt is a beneficial and necessary component of healthy living. However, if you are eating an excess of salt, you will retain water and that can lead to an imbalance of salt and water in the body and that is synonymous with your ‘not-so-favorite’ five letter word: Bloat. If you are eating processed foods such as frozen dinners, fast foods, snacks etc, you are most likely taking in excess sodium. Salting all of your food is another indication you are taking in too much sodium. Stored carbohydrates hold three times the water that protein does, so if you are eating an excess of pasta, cereals etc,, next time reduce the amount of carbs and add more protein in its place.
