Eat more Fiber
Not eating enough fiber may be a major reason for getting fatter and flabbier. To ditch the fat , you need to eat at least 25 grams of fiber every day. Fiber, which is the indigestible part of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods, helps your digestion, empties out your colon and the will help your lower belly go flat.
Many times the lack of digestive elimination makes your lower colon pooch out which pushes that area out even farther than normal. For best results, increase your fiber intake slowly over the course of one month and drink plenty of water to keep food moving through your system as quickly as possible.
Go for the good carbs
When you eat carbs, they break down into glucose, which is stored as glycogen in the muscles and liver. When glycogen is stored, it carries with it three times its own weight as water, compared to no water at all for protein and fat. If you eat an extremely high bad carb diet, you may store excess water, experience bloating and gain water weight, which can pooch out your belly as well.
Drinking more water can help to flush sodium out of the body, and that reduces the bloat and it also helps with the elimination. Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day.
Beverages with little or no calories, caffeine or sodium, including herbal tea, are best. Avoid regular soft drinks and soups with lots of sodium. Avoid carbonated drinks. Fizzy drinks, including soda pop and spritzers, increase bloating because the carbon dioxide trapped in the bubbles creates gas, which slows down stomach emptying.
Eat light at night
People who skip breakfast or lunch and eat their largest meal later in the day have lower metabolisms. So by eating lightly at night you’ll receive a double benefit: You’ll wake feeling more energized, after you go to the bathroom in the morning from increasing your water and fiber intake, you will instantly have a flatter abs. Then you will have a better appetite for a fiber-rich protein balanced breakfast, which sets you up for another day of energy and power.
