9 Easy Tips For Busting Belly Fat in 7 Days

By  | 

The time has come to get your bridal lehenga designed and you’ve got that one particular lehenga with a crop top design from Pinterest on your mind. The only obstacle that comes between you rocking such a midriff baring ensemble is just your belly fat. As the wedding date draws near, you wonder if you should give up on your dream design and go with a more ordinary design instead. What if we told you that it’s possible to get a trimmer tummy in just 7 days? Yes, 7 days is all it takes to get a visibly flatter and less flabby tummy without going under the knife. If you’re up for a challenge, here’s what you need to do:

Start Your Day in a Healthy Way

Kickstart your morning with a powerful combination of grated ginger, 1 tbsp of honey and a few drops of lemon juice in warm water. It’s a good way to remove any toxins from your body, improve body metabolism, control any sudden hunger pangs and also control your appetite.

Alter Your Diet

You may not notice it but almost everything you eat has some amount of sugar, sodium and a host of other additives that do nothing for your body. Give up caffeine, sugar, alcohol and any processed food for the next 7 days if you really want to reduce belly fat. Eat more natural foods which are steamed or boiled and include more greens on your plate.

Take your Supplements

Supplements are a great way to ensure that your body doesn’t miss out on getting necessary nutrients which are a must for healthy skin and hair. Add two omega 3 fish oil capsules to your diet because research shows that naturally occurring fish oil actually helps to burn fat faster, and that includes belly fat too.

Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Crash dieting is not the best way to lose overall fat and that in fact, can make you feel tired and grumpy too. A good Indian breakfast with a balanced carbohydrate, fat and protein content is enough to keep sugar levels stable and to keep you full for longer too.

Avoid Late Dinners

Eating anything after 7 pm is a strict no-no because the body isn’t prepared to digest a heavy meal at that time of the hour. In fact, eating a light dinner which satisfies you without leaving you feeling stuffed is the right approach to take. Steamed veggies and lean protein are good healthy choices to consider.

Stock up on Fibre

Fibre is actually your best friend when it comes to fighting belly fat. The more fibre you consume, the fuller you will feel and the lesser you will snack. Fibre works wonders in removing toxic elements from the body too.

Have One Citrus Fruit Everyday

The role of Vitamin C in the body is a pretty understated one and yet it has been proved that regular consumption of fruits like grapefruit and oranges can help the body keep fat away. Plus, you also give your body an added boost of natural antioxidants.

Snack on Fruits at Tea-Time

Say no to eating friend snacks or other junk food and a big yes to eating healthy. Apples, papayas, pomegranates and pineapples are some of the best fruits to consume which can help you busy that belly fat faster. Papayas for instance keep you full for longer, apples are full of fibre, pineapples are again loaded with Vitamin C and pomegranates are full of toxin destroying antioxidants.

Exercise Right

In addition to cardio for overall body health and fitness, focus on exercises that are customised to help you lose belly fat faster. Abdomen crunches are a great way to work muscles that can be found in the stomach and which are usually ignored. A proper exercise regime which gives the muscles in your abdomen a good workout will definitely show long lasting results.
