If you fall into the group of people who have tried all sorts of diets and exercises, yet failed to take it off the fat around the stomach, check if you are making any of these mistakes.
Lack of magnesium
The body needs magnesium for normal operation of the heart, nerves and muscles. But it has an impact on weight loss and body shaping. One study showed that a sufficient intake of magnesium is associated with low levels of glucose and insulin plus has tranquilizing action during the menstrual cycle.
Tip: More often eat leafy vegetables, beans, legumes and nuts.
Food with too much salt
When you feel that you are literally bloated after a salty meal, you really are. Salt causes displacement of water from the bloodstream into the skin, so grand consumption of salt will make you feel thicker. More than 90% of people are going over the recommended daily dose, which is 4 grams.
Tip: Avoid adding salt in dishes and replace it with other spices. Try cooking with chili, pepper, ginger, rosemary, cinnamon…
Carbonated soft drinks are literally glued to your waist. Only two glasses per day are enough for the fat to accumulate on the stomach 5 times faster.
Tip: Replace them with natural juices. Plus, stick to the rule of 8 glasses of water a day and drink a lot of unsweetened tea. You do not need to give up coffee, which is beneficial in moderation.
Lack of sleep
If you feel that you are constantly missing sleep, unless you are chronically tired, this feeling prevents melting fat from the abdomen. Plus, because of the lack of sleep you frequently eat fatty foods, which activate the hunger hormone.
Tip: To regulate appetite and fat around the stomach, sleep at least 7 to 9 hours a day. Keep the temperature of the room in which you sleep around 18 degrees, avoid caffeine after 19 hours and try to introduce a routine when it comes to lying down.
Eating the wrong fat
The body does not react the same to all fat. Saturated fats are far more harmful than those that contain omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids found in nuts, sunflower seeds, salmon, olive oil and avocados, and you need to eat it more frequently.
Tip: balance the relationship between saturated and unsaturated fats in a day.
