6 Easy Tips for a Flat Tummy

Lose Those Pounds!Losing weight can be an easy thing to think about, but difficult to find success in.

Below are the top ways to lose weight safely, permanently, and easily so that your friends can gasp at your weight loss accomplishment!

1. Keep Track of Your Caloric Intake

This is probably one of the most effective ways to lose weight, yet not many women do it. Keeping track of your caloric intake allows you to see exactly how many calories you eat in relation to how many calories you burn.

When you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight. When you eat fewer calories that you burn, you lose weight. It's a very simple concept, and it works. A few smartphone apps that can help you track your calories are:

MyFitnessPal
Lose It!
SparkPeople Calorie Counter
CHRON-O-meter
Noom Coach
MyNetDiary Calorie Counter
FatSecret

However, it is important not to go overboard with the calorie deficit, as that may lead to long-term health problems. It is recommended to lose no more than 2 pounds per week. Anything more than that tends to make you lose precious muscle.

2. Drink More Water

Studies have shown that increased water intake can significantly boost metabolism over a short period of time, helping you burn more calories.

3. Use Smaller Portion Sizes and Plates

This goes hand in hand with keeping track of your calories. Studies have shown that people using small plates tend to eat fewer calories.

4. Eat More Fiber Rich Food

Although an increase in fiber intake does not directly allow you to lose weight, it increases satiety, which help keeps you fuller longer. This allows you to eat fewer calories in the long term, and help you keep the weight away!

5. Join a Gym / Burn More Calories

We all know this, but few of us ever do it. Engage in a physical activity that allows you to burn more calories. It could be as simple as taking a walk, or joining your local gym.

Maybe you're too busy for that. But even if you're extremely busy, you can always find a few minutes each day to follow simple exercise routines at the comfort of your home. A few minutes of exercise each day can really make a big impact over time. No excuses here.

6. Be Honest with Yourself

At the end of the day, you must realize that in order to change the way you look, you'll have to take the steps to make it happen. Thinking about exercising will not do you any good, and there aren't any magic solutions. It takes time to change. And the best day to start your weight loss journey is today.
