5 easy tips to whittle that waist that don’t require exercise or cutting carbs
These simple tips really work to lose belly fat.
Eat 30 minutes before you are typically hungry. So, if you are super hungry at 11:30 am and 3:00 pm, instead, eat your lunch at 11:00 am and your snack at 2:30 pm. Since it takes about 20 minutes for your mind to register that you are full, it will signal earlier to stop eating.
Eat five small meals every day. Some people eat six meals a day, but unless those meals are really small, it’s easy to eat more calories than you should.
Space your small meals out every 2 ½ to 3 hours. When I interviewed people for my diet book, one commonality between all the overweight individuals is that they waited too long between meals. When you wait too long to eat, your body thinks you’re starving and slows down your metabolism, which causes your body to hold onto fat.
Plan your meals in advance and make a few meals ahead of time. When you don’t plan, we all know what happens….pizza!
Eat protein, carbohydrates and a little bit of healthy fat at every meal. If any one of these three macronutrients are missing, you’re more apt to be hungry and snack on edibles that are high-calorie.
