Are you tired of the pooch that hangs over your pants? Are your love handles more than you can “handle”? You don’t get what you wish for, you get what you work for.
Here are some simple changes you can make to melt away your love handles and muffin top:
1. Eat breakfast. Many people do not eat breakfast. Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day! After a long night of sleeping and fasting, your body needs fuel to function at maximum capacity. When you go for any extended period of the day, you are sending a signal to your body to put your metabolism into a kind of hibernation. It slows WAY down. This will negatively affect your body’s ability to control hormones, including insulin and cortisol. These hormones control many things including blood sugar, inflammation, and weight gain.
2. Keep it simple. Each meal, beginning with breakfast, should include a protein, healthy fat, and carbohydrate. Pick one from each category and Voila! You are done. Some examples of protein are lean meats, chicken, fish, and eggs. Healthy fats include avocado, nuts, seeds, coconut, and olives. And last but not least, carbohydrates. Carbs have gotten a bad rap over the years but here are the facts. Your body needs some carbohydrates to function optimally. Example of quality carbs includes vegetables, fruits, sweet potato and quinoa.
3. Kick sugar to the curb. Follow step 2 and don’t add any condiments to your protein, fat, and carb. You will detox from sugar and you will likely start to enjoy the taste of a vegetable you once disliked.
4. Ab specific workouts. While this will not melt away your muffin top, once your muffin top does melt away, you will have strong and sexy abs to show off!
