1. Straighten up
Put your shoulders back and bring in your stomach at any time, as soon as you remember about it. Purchase a posture corrector (available at practically every drugstore) or a related medical device if you are unable or unwilling to recall. Despite the fact that it is important, we frequently undervalue the effect of good posture. By straightening the spine, height is added, the breasts are shaped, and the abdomen is made to appear flatter.
Muscles have a memory, including posture. The stomach will therefore develop the desired fitness features in two to three weeks. At the very least from the side view.
2. Drink plenty of water
Yes, we, too, are tired of endless reminders of 8 glasses of water a day. However, a fact is a fact; at the first hint of a lack of water, an organism taught by the bitter experience of evolution immediately begins to store life-giving moisture, including on the stomach. If the swelling in the arms and legs caused by the same cause is familiar to many, we rarely notice swelling in the press area. But in vain.
3. Go to the toilet regularly
This is an important point in creating a flat belly. The body is an incredibly patient thing, so if you’ve trained it to endure the urge to urinate, it will call you to the toilet only as a last resort. The rest of the time, the bladder walls will expand, which often results in an overly rounded abdomen.
Ensure that you visit the toilet at least 5-7 times a day – this is the number doctors consider normal.
4. Chew food thoroughly
The better you grind your lunch or dinner with your teeth, the less space it will take in your stomach. This means that a full stomach will not cause a bloated stomach. Additionally, the longer you chew, the less you eat before your brain tells you “I’m full.” This will enable you to avoid gaining extra calories, which, you see, in the long run also affects the condition of the abdomen.
5. Breathe through your nose
At first glance, the advice is strange but effective. The fact is that when we breathe through our mouths, we swallow air, which becomes the cause of bloating. For the same reasons, it is not recommended to lean on the gum. If you want to freshen your breath after eating, it is best to use a spray or lollipop.
6. Control hormones
Deviation of the female hormone estrogen from normal levels often leads to the appearance of so-called visceral fat adipose tissue deposited mainly on the abdomen. So, don’t put off going to the doctor out of laziness, get tested for estrogen level, and, if necessary, adjust it to normal values.
7. Lie down
Lie on your back, put your feet on a raised surface (a pillow or sofa cushion), and tuck a rolled towel under your lower back. Please pay attention to the belly; in this position, it will deflate, become sunken. 20 minutes of this lazy gymnastics a day – and soon, the abdominal muscles will begin to get used to this position (remember about muscle memory).
By the way, the Japanese believe that engaging in such exercise will ensure they have a slim body and good posture, which, you see, will also not be superfluous.
