Just 1 month of following these guidelines will help you wear a couple of sizes smaller.
But if a lot of time has passed after giving birth, it's time to get down to business seriously. Moreover, only one month separates you from the desired goal.
So, 10 rules to help you quickly remove your belly.
1. To refuse from bad habits
In this case, we are talking about alcohol, smoking and excessive consumption of carbohydrates (sweets).
Alcohol gives the body a lot of empty calories, causes swelling, slows down metabolism, dramatically increases appetite, disrupts the activity of internal organs, and causes indigestion. All this is exactly the opposite of normal weight loss.Smoking, in addition to the obvious harm to the lungs and a high risk of cancer, also slows down the metabolism. It also worsens your stamina and wastes your time, which could be occupied with something useful.
Sweets and other foods high in simple carbohydrates give you extra calories and are stored on your stomach. In addition, they cause jumps in blood glucose levels - and this is a breakdown, increased appetite, bad mood.
2. Drink at least 2 liters of water per day
Some people claim that they cannot drink that much water a day - "it won't fit."
There are 2 things to answer to this (unless, of course, you have problems with the kidneys and urinary system).Firstly, if you eat less and move more, then 2 liters of water during the day will definitely fit in you. Keep a cup of clean water by your side. Over time, you will realize that water also has a taste and can be really tasty.
If you do not drink before going to bed, then the water does not cause swelling, but rather fights them. And it also fights well against bouts of pseudo-hunger when you want to drink something or eat just out of boredom or stress.
Secondly, do you want to be healthy, get rid of your belly, improve metabolism, smooth out wrinkles, give yourself a chance for longevity? So, you drink 2 liters of water a day and enjoy life. If you drink a lot of coffee, add an extra cup of water to your diet for each cup.
3. Eat fractionally
Surely you noticed that in the morning you can wake up with a practically flat stomach, and after eating and in the evening it is "bursting", and it already stands out ugly.
This means that you have eaten too much food and that your abdominal muscles are not trained enough to hide the amount you eat.
Takeaway: Divide your standard 3 meals by 5-6. For example, eat half a standard serving at 8 am, 11 am, 2 pm, 5 pm, and 8 pm. Just remember that portions in this case should be half, not full.
4. Keep your posture
Stand sideways in front of the mirror. Straighten your shoulders, straighten your back, lift your chin, and draw in your stomach. If you do all this, visually you will already look much slimmer.
Do not forget to keep your posture always and everywhere: on the street, while eating, at your desk, etc. Except that it is useful for your musculoskeletal system (the load is distributed correctly), it is also simply beautiful.
Good posture emphasizes your strengths and makes faults less visible.
5. Move more
Movement is life and it is a fact. Modern society suffers from a sedentary lifestyle: we are constantly at computers, in transport, on the couch, etc.
Physical inactivity not only slows down metabolism and leads to excess weight, but also negatively affects absolutely on all systems of the body, on the heart muscle - and as a result reduces the duration and the quality of life.It's great if you have the opportunity (time, money, desire) to go to the gym. If not, but you really want to remove your stomach, do the exercises at home. Turn on the video, repeat the exercises, exercise at any time convenient for you, even with the whole family.
For example, do a 30-minute marathon before breakfast on weekends. It's only half an hour, everyone has them, and the effect will be even from such activities, if you do them diligently.
Also, don't be lazy to just move more throughout the day. Walk, when the weather is fine, do not sit with a stroller - but walk, move more around the house, not being lazy to get up off the couch once again, warm up during the working day, wipe the kitchen floor while warming up kettle, etc.
6. Less nervous
Stress negatively affects your well-being and appearance, whatever one may say. It can significantly increase your appetite - and you will want to eat something sweet, fatty, high-calorie, deprives you of the desire to move and take care of yourself, health, posture.Stress worsens sleep and slows down metabolism. If it is impossible to change the situation that puts you under stress, change your attitude towards it.
How is up to you. Meditation, seeing a psychologist, are all great. Meditation is fast and free. The psychologist will take longer, but it will help to establish relationships with food, with people, with myself.
7. Sleep 7-8 hours
Try to go to bed no later than 11 pm to get more or less sleep. Do not flip through social networks at night and generally try to put your smartphone away at least an hour before bedtime.Without proper rest, the body will not be able to work normally, metabolic processes will be disrupted, and this does not lead to weight loss at all. Research has long proven that people who get enough sleep experience less hunger.
8. Count calories
At the beginning of your weight loss, this is strictly necessary. More often than not, people don't even know how many calories they actually consume.
It is very simple to do this: download a special application, enter your height, age, current and desired weight there. The program calculates how much you should consume in calories. Then every day you bring in what you ate, and the application shows how much you fit within the allowed limits.Of course, the simpler your meal is, the easier it will be to calculate your calorie intake. But modern programs are also able to take into account multi-component and purchased dishes.
On average, a woman needs to consume no more than 1500 kcal per day to lose weight. If you focus on vegetables, cereals, fruits, kefir and lean meat, then you definitely will not be hungry.
To achieve an excellent effect in a month, make it a rule to regularly do three types of massage: honey. coffee and vacuum.
For honey massage you only need regular liquid honey. Apply it in a thin layer on your stomach (and other parts of the body that you think are problematic, except for the chest), and then press sharply and just as sharply peel your palms.
It may feel uncomfortable at first, but you will quickly get used to it. The massage continues until a tingling sensation is felt during such manipulations. The massage improves blood circulation, tones and softens the skin, eliminates cellulite.
For coffee massage you will need natural ground coffee (the cheapest, if only with caffeine) and shower gel.
Steam the skin a little in the bath / shower, apply shower gel and ground coffee to problem areas. Each zone should be massaged with hands for at least 5 minutes (stomach - clockwise, legs from bottom to top).Gloves can be worn to keep your fingernails and skin on your hands from darkening. Rinse thoroughly with shower gel after the massage to avoid staining your towel and clothes.
Massage with a coffee scrub removes swelling, reduces volume, fights cellulite and ingrown hairs. You can do it every day if you are generally healthy and not pregnant.
Vacuum massage. You will need time, patience and a couple of silicone massage cups. They are sold in any pharmacy, you can also buy an advanced version - with a pump, so it is easier to create the desired vacuum.
Let's analyze the option of how to do massage with cans without a pump. Apply some massage oil to your body (abdomen, thighs) to make the jar glide easier. If the jar does not "stick" with the oil and does not absorb the skin - do it without oil, but it will hurt more.
Squeeze air out of the massage jar, attach it to the stomach, release the jar a little. A piece of skin is drawn into it. Next, drive the can over the entire abdomen and other problem areas for 5-10 minutes per zone.
The massage can be quite painful and is not suitable for people with a number of problems with the skin and blood vessels, therefore, before performing it be sure to consult your doctor.
10. Keep your muscles tense
This is the simplest workout for your abdominal muscles and allows you to strengthen them all day without interrupting other activities.
Constantly pull in and tighten your abdominal muscles, very quickly it will become a habit and you will not have to constantly remind yourself about it.
Strong abdominal muscles = beautiful and slim belly.
