What to do for a flat tummy besides exercising

Dos AND Donts for a flatter tummy

Do...

  • chew properly to help aid digestion and release all of the correct digestive juices
  • eat non-wheat flours like rye, spelt, rice and oat
  • try non dairy alternatives like soya milk, oat milk, almond milk, rice milk and quinoa milk.
  • use natural sugar alternatives like maple syrup, agave syrup and xylitol
  • eat non-gassy foods such as carrots, spinach, watercress, avocados, lemons and radishes
  • eat at regular intervals to keep your digestive tract working properly and your blood sugar levels stable

Don't...

  • gulp food or chew too quickly as this can upset the digestive system
  • consume wheat, which is a common cause of bloating
  • consume dairy as this can make the digestive system sluggish causing constipation and bloating
  • use sugar or sweeteners, as these can ferment in the digestive tract causing bloating
  • eat gas-forming foods like baked beans, Brussels' sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower
  • drink carbonated drinks
  • go to bed with a full stomach - eating too late can put unnecessary strain on the digestive system causing a range of problem
  • if you do eat late avoid starches, sugary foods, salads in the evening (they lead to bloating) and try to stick to maybe some soup or very light dishes, such as vegetables and white meat or fish. Avoid cheese and the combination of wheat and cheese at all costs

Simple really, isn't it?

100 Star Foods for Super Health!

100 Star Foods for Super Health!

To facilitate the myriad of biochemical processes that go on inside us each and every day we all need a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. To get these nutrients we need to eat a wide variety of different kinds of food, but, alarmingly, many of us eat a very restricted diet in which we repeatedly choose our favourite meals. In contrast, in Japan people eat a far more varied diet, often consuming around 100 different varieties of food each week. Is it any wonder, therefore, that the United Kingdom finds itself at Number 37 in the world rankings for life expectancy, while Japan finds itself at Number 3?
