Goodbye, Belly Flab

And hey, hello, Killer Abs. 
So, next in the Health Is Wealth series – as promised, here’s today’s tip about getting rid of belly flab and, as the video says, killer abs. Just watching the video made me feel a lot better.It is just under 2 minutes and definitely worth a try.

The battle of the bulge can be quite challenging. More like war, it would seem. So what can you to help yourself  feel lighter, while becoming healthier?
  1. Stay hydrated through the day by drinking lots of water. (no – not alcohol)
  2. Ensure that you get your vitamin quota – if necessary, talk to your doc about supplements
  3. Enjoy a fruit first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
  4. Include salad in your lunch and dinner, or just substitute lunch and dinner with a big salad. Stick to a nutritious diet
  5. Enjoy a healthy snack every two hours to keep your blood sugar stable. Go nuts.
  6. Stay away from sweets that use synthetic sweeteners. Fruit is better
  7. Remember to add regular exercise to keep the circulation going & enhance your enegy levels.
  8. Avoid trans fats and margarine – they slow down your liver
  9. Include beans in your diet – they are packed with protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates (the good ones) clean your bowels, stabilize blood sugar, and keep you feeling full for a while.
Of these,  No. 3 looks near-impossible to me as I cannot function without my strong cup of filter coffee. Right now, I am practicing drinking water first thing in the morning. It definitely feels good.

    This is a timely post. My belly seems to be winning the war so its time for me to fight back.

    I really don’t like doing ab work, but a woman’s gotta do what a woman’s gotta do. 🙂 Thanks for the tips, Vidya.
