Want To Lose Weight in Your Abdominal Area? 3 Tips To Flatten It Up

Posted on: 9 July 2017

If you have extra weight in your abdominal area this can be frustrating, especially if you want to wear tight clothing. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help flatten this area so you can wear whatever you want. Below is some information about this to help you get started.

Wear a Waist Cincher

While you are losing weight, you can wear a waist cincher to flatten your abdominal area. These waist cinchers are made of a flexible, elastic fabric that fastens in the back. Some waist cinchers go below your bust and down over your abdomen and some go over your bust down to your abdomen.

When wearing the waist cincher, it needs to be tight enough that it pulls your abdominal muscles in, but you should still feel comfortable and breathe normally. You generally wear the waist cincher a few hours per day. They can not only temporarily give you a small waist, but they also train your muscles to tighten up as you wear it, which can help you get a trimmer tummy over time.

For more info on what kind of waist cincher might be right for you, visit a local store or online retailer.

Eat Fiber

Add fiber to your diet to help flatten your tummy. Fiber works well because it makes you feel fuller so you will not eat as much. Fiber also has an added benefit of preventing constipation. There are many foods you can eat to get extra fiber in your diet, including:

  • Pears with skin
  • Almonds
  • Split peas
  • Air-popped popcorn
  • Avocados
  • Raspberries
  • Black beans
  • Broccoli

Add these and other high-fiber foods to your diet each week and you will notice a difference in how much you eat.

Do Strength Training

There are a lot of muscles in your tummy area and to get this area thinner you must tighten up these muscles. One of the best ways to do this is to do strength training exercises that target this area on your body.

You can also visit a gym to do strength training. They have instructors there that can show you the right equipment to use and how to use it. There are also strength training DVDs on the market that will show you a variety of exercises. Plan to do this a few times per week to get a flatter tummy.

Before you do anything, you should talk to your doctor to ensure that you have no health problems. Your doctor can also give you some tips or give you names of nutritionists in your area to help you with your diet.


The Power of Color

As a kid, I didn’t think much about the clothes I wore. I was only concerned with how comfortable they were. I often erroneously associated stylish clothing with pain. I didn’t think I could be comfortable in anything the latest runway models were wearing. Besides dressing in clothing that was too large for my body, I typically always chose black items to wear. I mistakenly believed wearing something black would make me look thinner regardless of the style or cut of a piece of clothing. Thankfully, in my adult years, I’ve learned to embrace color. Wearing my favorite colors always brightens my mood and gives me confidence. On this blog, I hope you will learn ways to add vivid, cheerful color to your wardrobe.
