Toning a flabby tummy and being finally able to get rid of a flabby tummy is what most of us dreamed of but never seem to have the time for. We all want to know the secrets to reduce the tummy using equipment. Maybe its from years of bad eating resulting in a beer belly, or a flabby tummy after pregnancy; there is no excuse anymore to follow these simple steps and reduce that waistline!

If you remain motivated to lose abdominal fat you WILL get rid of that potbelly and shrink belly fat. The following are some of the best ways to lose tummy fat, what foods to eat to lose weight, get rid of "flabby belly" once and foods that make you flabby. Let's get straight into it!

Foods That Burn Stomach Fat

Burning stomach fat revolves around one rule. If you're using up more energy than you are receiving, you will burn fat. Simply put, flattening your stomach is the direct result of what you eat and how you release energy. The first step is determining what to eat, and yes there are foods that burn fat!

These flat stomach foods are a favorite in any diet for a flat tummy.

1) Dairy Products - Calcium Rich and Low Fat

Low fat Dairy products are foods that help you burn stomach fat because it contributes to the breakdown of fat in your cells. Research done in the University of Tennessee shows that by eating around 4 servings of calcium rich dairy products, it in fact doubles the speed at which your body breaks down fat. This results in burning more belly fat faster.

2) Oatmeal and Whole Grains

I'm sure you've heard of how oatmeal can drastically lower one's cholesterol level and is good for the heart even if it's not the tastiest food on earth. This is because of the sheer amount of good fiber it contains which helps clean your body of toxins and bad acid which will ultimately help with your digestive system. This is the same with whole grains which has not been processed, with the fiber and necessary nutrients are locked inside.

3) Olive Oil and Omega 3

Both olive oil and omega 3 have always been seen as good oils because they are mono unsaturated fats which are good for your heart and overall health. These essential oils are vital for the body's everyday functions. There has been studies where by taking an omega 3 capsule everyday, the patients lost up to 5kg over a period of 2 months.

Exercises That Flatten My Stomach

As stated earlier, if you want to melt belly fat, it consists of two things. What to eat has been covered in the earlier paragraph and the second being how to use up excess energy before your body stores it into tummy flab.

Exercises to flatten your tummy that get rid of abdominal fat are a great start to target your belly fat. Stomach tightening exercises such as sit ups are simple and does not need any special equipment. There are many other exercises to flatten tummy but can be costly due to the heavy machinery which are therefore also dangerous.

Final Words

Get rid of flabby tummy is a very achievable goal if you know what foods to eat to burn fat, and also about the best exercises to burn belly fat. By continuing with what you have learnt, you will also notice changes in other parts of your body also, such as getting rid of chubby cheeks and fat around the arms and the back.

Soon, you might not even be asking yourself how to lose flabby bellies, but rather "i want six packs abs" and begin doing six pack stomach exercises in no time at all!

Other exercises to get rid of belly fat involve working your whole body instead of targeting specific areas, such as swimming. Swimming is one of the cheapest and easiest ways for cardiovascular exercises and abdominal toning. For those severely overweight and most other exercises such as even walking are too difficult, the water will allow ease of joint movements making it one of the best tummy fat burners to get rid of abdominal fat. With time, constant exercise will get rid of visceral fat which are the health imposing fats that clog the inner organs. Not only will you lose that stomach flab, but will also have a healthier body with less health risks.
