Vacuum Pose should be the number one exercise since it’s the best exercise you can do to get a flat belly. What you do is suck in your belly as much as possible. Now the key that most people get wrong is that you need to suck in the lower belly, not the upper. So focus on your belly button getting sucked in.
The “bicycle” exercise has been proven to be one of the best flat belly exercises there is. Lie on the floor put your hands behind your head, and lift your legs to about a 45 degree angle. While moving your legs as if you were pedaling a bike, bring your opposite elbow to touch your knee.
Eat small meals throughout the day – Your metabolism has everything to do with the amount of calories that you burn each day. To keep a high metabolic level all day, you need to eat small amounts through the day instead of eating 3 large meals.
In choosing food, sweet potatoes and yams are better than potatoes, pasta, and white rice. Take in more vegetables because the reason you have to eat this way during breakfast is to keep you from eating a lot, most especially during dinner. Taking in more food at night makes a person’s waistline thicker.
Working the entire body will add more lean muscle. Women need to add lean, toned muscle to their body. They should not be afraid of bulking up or looking like men. The more muscle we have, the more calories we burn. Each pound of muscle burns 35-50 calories per day.
Of course, you can’t forget about cardio entirely, but make your cardio workouts short but hard. If you’re not panting and sweating, then you’ve done very little. The trick to losing belly fat is to workout hard and not waste your time.
Participate in a cardio activity most days of the week. I recommend doing a mix of session lengths and intensity levels. The total workout time should typically be kept under an hour (including strength training). A few days should be medium intensity and medium length cardio sessions. A few days should be reserved for long sessions with low intensity. One day each for a higher intensity, shorter program and a rest day.
