10 Ways To A Slimmer Waist

1. No Junk Food

Junk food is the No.1 reason people gain weight. It’s full of calories but lacks good nutrition. Unfortunately, it also tastes so good! Stop the junk if you want to dump the gut!

2. Eat Low GI Carbs

Sugar is enemy No.2. It triggers the body to store fat. Eat low GI carbs that provide vitamins, fiber and control your insulin levels. Learn more here.

3. Be Natural

Natural foods, natural lifestyle. Getting back to nature is good for our health.

4. No Snacks!

Eating between meals is a sure-fire way to gain weight. Comfort eating is usually triggered by an emotion – your body does not need to energy, so it stores it as fat.

5. Less Booze

If you drink alcohol on a regular basis, this will contribute to weight gain. A little alcohol, in moderation, is OK, but if you are drinking every day, expect to pile on the pounds!

6. Early Nights

More sleep helps the body regulate itself, and this means a healthier appetite and metabolism. Sleep is good for you! Learn more here.

7. Regular Exercise

8. Reduce Stress

Stress leads to emotional eating and lethargy – many people put off exercise is they’re stressed.

9. Build Muscle

    Hi Lara, yes skipping is good, but you need to mix it up a bit, do some running, bodyweight exercises, weight training, cycling etc. too. All exercise will help you to lose belly fat.
