Take care of your diet

Before we give you our
sports routine winner, we are going to give you some general nutritional advice so that you can
lose weight in a healthy way, thus contributing to making your belly look smoother and maximizing the
benefits of your exercises:

1. Eat raw, fiber-rich foods: This type of food helps to improve the functioning of the intestine and digestion, in addition to increasing the feeling of satiety, which helps you not snack on less healthy foods between meals.

2. Do not drink sugary drinks: We all like soft drinks, but these types of products contain a lot of sugar (even the light version), which contributes to the accumulation of fat at the abdominal level. The best thing would be to get used to eliminating them from your diet, but if you cannot avoid it, try to make it very sporadic.

3. Avoid frying: They are very good, but fried foods not only give us an extra contribution of calories, but also increase the intake of saturated fats and trans fats, which increase our cholesterol, which can cause heart disease. Opt for grilled, steamed or cooked food.

5. Eat a salad as a first course: This simple gesture increases the feeling of satiety and helps you control your appetite. You can also eat a pear or an apple 20 minutes before meals.

6. Drink water: Drinking plenty of water helps to eliminate accumulated toxins in the body. It is recommended to drink between 2 and 2.5 liters of water a day, preferably between meals.
