1. Start A Goal For Yourself

If you really want a flatter tummy come summer, then start today working to make it happen. Do a few sit-ups in the morning and gradually increase the amount you do as the days go by. Check to see if your digestive system is running smoothly too because when it’s not we can often get a bloated stomach. Stress hurts our digestive system as well, so try to calm yourself and take steps to decrease stress.

2. Fruits And Veggies

I’d have to stay that in general, my taste buds just aren’t a fan of fruits and veggies. They would much rather me chow down on a burger with fries and a chocolate shake. But these foods are no good for us, they make us feel tired, lethargic, increase our blood pressure and link us to serious illness. Oh yeah, and they make us look bad. So try to get in your five fruits and veggies for the day. I like to bring ziplock baggies of carrots and strawberries to work so that it’s easier for me to get in that produce daily. I also make sure to have fruits and veggies with my three main meals.

3. H20

Water is so good for our bodies and it helps us to look slimmer too. When we drink water our bodies feel more full and we’re less likely to splurge on unhealthy foods. Water also helps to keep our energy levels up so we’re more likely to exercise and keep in shape in that way.
