Have you been day dreaming of a tighter stomach? Have you been working on a tighter stomach and just not seeing results? So many of us are in the same boat.

Tip number 4:
Avoid drinking your calories. Soda, fruit juices and other beverages are loaded with sugar and a ton of liquid calories. Your brain will not register liquid calories the same as solid calories. So you will not be left satisfied or full when drinking these beverages. Focus on drinking more water. You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day. Ex: if you weigh 125lbs then you should be drinking 63oz of water each day. Water will also help increase your body's metabolic rate and help with overall function.
Tip number 3:
Add resistance training to your workouts. Resistance training will help you build muscle, increase your metabolic rate, while burning more fat. You do not have to add resistance training every day. A good balance would be 2-3 times week for your average person. It is a small change that will yield you great results.
Tip number 2:
Get enough sleep. Insufficient sleep is directly related to weight gain. Studies show that sleeping less than 5 hours a day is directly related to midsection weight gain in women.
Tip number 1:
Healthier eating habits. Remember, excess of fats are carbs will cause you to hold weight in your midsection. Getting on a regular eating plan will help you adapt better eating habits and give you the knowledge to know what "too much" looks like. Focusing on eating more vegetables and higher fiber foods will help you not only look great but feel great as well.
