FLAT BELLY

How many times did you start losing weight in order to fall off in a couple of months and then return to the old forms? It’s time to pull yourself together and part with the fat on your stomach once and for all.

Author of the Zero Belly Diet book, David Zinczenko, developed a set of simple habits to help lose weight to a friend, who complained that she cannot lose weight.

As a proof of his method effectiveness, he held a study that involved 500 participants. As a result, all participants managed to lose up to 7 kg in 14 days. We tell how they did it.

WALK BEFORE BREAKFAST

According to the studies, held for the Zero Belly Diet project, sunlight during the period 8:00 to 12:00 in the morning reduces the risk of obesity, regardless of your:

  • age,
  • activity level,
  • daily calorie intake.

In addition, the energy needed for such a walk will be taken from the fat stores of your body, and not from the breakfast that you had.

WALK BEFORE BREAKFAST

HAVE A HEARTY AND PLEASANT BREAKFAST

In your morning dishes, combine:

  • proteins,
  • fiber,
  • healthy fats.

This allows shaking your metabolism and helps you burn calories all day long. Mandatory menu for the morning:

  • boiled eggs or omelets,
  • cereals,
  • homemade muesli,
  • smoothies,
  • whole grain bread sandwiches,
  • slices of salmon,
  • avocado.

PLEASANT BREAKFAST

CHOOSE RED FRUITS

Red apples instead of granny smith, watermelon instead of melon and so on. The high concentration of anthocyanins, which provide fruit with the red tint, reduce the activity of genes that accumulate fat.

  • Moreover, some fruits, for example, plums, are able to accelerate the fats withdrawal from the body.

ADD AVOCADO TO YOUR MENU

Avocados are filled with monounsaturated fats, which are useful for the heart and reduce the attacks of hunger, as well. According to a study published in the Nutrition Journal, people who ate half of an avocado during lunch were 40% less likely to experience hunger after it.

  • Useful elements contained in the avocado also prevent deposition of fat in the abdominal area.

AND MORE EGGS

Eggs are not only rich in protein, but also contain choline. It is a substance that takes part in the metabolism of fats and helps remove them from the liver.

DRINK WATER WITH LEMON

And not only. In addition to lemon, add oranges and grapefruits to it – this simple drink is rich in antioxidants that the citrus peel contains.

  • They help to remove toxins from the liver and prevent biliary retention.

SNACK ON THE NUT MIX

Avoid ready-made nut mix that you can buy at a supermarket. Rather create your perfect mix of:

  • nuts,
  • dried fruits,
  • even bits of bitter chocolate.

Just be sure to include peanuts in it. These contain substances that weaken the action of the fat accumulating genes.

TRAIN IN FREE TIME

It is not necessary to allocate special time for sports. If you work late or prefer meeting with friends in the evening over a workout in the gym, simply include in your schedule:

  1. morning exercises,
  2. lunch walk,
  3. evening 10-minute exercises.

This will help reduce blood sugar and improve metabolism.

DARK CHOCOLATE AND BERRIES AS A DESSERT

The way to a flat stomach has never been simple, so you will have to leave your common cakes and croissants in the past. Dark chocolate does not hurt – antioxidants that cocoa beans contain reduce blood sugar and contribute to weight loss.

MORE GREENS

It is unlikely that your daily menu includes:

  • watercress,
  • kale,
  • broccoli,
  • arugula.

At that, they help maintain your weight within the normal limits. Sulforaphane found in them is an excellent antioxidant and quickly normalizes the level of sugar in the blood. It is also known for its anti-cancer and antibacterial properties.
