Let’s face, the most sought after physical feature in the world is the coveted 6 pack abs – though in some cases just having tone or flat midsections is enough. This is a goal for many women who have recently given birth and are trying to lose their post pregnancy bellies; postnatal exercise is the order of the day for new moms! The road to a six pack is not an easy one, but can be made simple with the right amount of determination and most of all, what I like to call “digestive discipline”.
Let’s review the TYPES of bellies and what they may mean.
- A Belly That Looks Like a Flat Tire
This type of belly often appears as a result of spending a lot of time in a sitting position and not being physically active. Also, consuming sugary foods makes things worse.
If you are dealing with this type of stomach, it’s best for you to avoid drinking alcohol and soft drinks. The easiest way to get rid of it is by eating healthy food.
- A Belly Caused by Stress
People who are perfectionists usually have a low, rounded tummy but this may also appear in those who have problems with digestion and bloating. The only way to get rid of this type of belly is to stop skipping meals and giving up on fast food.
- A Low Belly
A soft tummy in the lower abdomen is usually associated with not being active after eating a meal. This kind of stomach appears in people who are not physically active.
An active way of life with exercise combined with a nutrient rich diet including healthy natural juices, can help you in getting rid of this type of belly successfully. If you want to go the whole hog and work towards a dreamy washboard stomach, you might need to take some supplements like Sarms UK to help you build the necessary muscle. It’s not impossible if you set your mind to it, but to start with, aim to simply get rid of that excess weight.
- A Bloated Stomach
A bloated stomach usually occurs as a result of food that doesn’t agree with your body, or if you have specific allergies to certain foods. Another reason for a case of the bloats is inflammation, which can come from fermenting sugars in the intestinal wall. These sugars can include starchy foods like potatoes, pasta and soft over processed breads common in fast food sandwiches. Fermentation and the growth of unhealthy gut bacteria result in the bloated appearance.
In order to get rid of a bloated stomach you need to consume beverages that have a positive effect on the digestive system. In this particular case, physical activity is less important than getting eating habits under control. Eating a balanced diet along with proper food combinations and portion control are key to reducing inflammation, which can contribute to bad digestion, joint pain, loss of sleep and low energy.
Another factor can the ingredients we use. Harmful packaged seasonings can also be the result of inflamed intestines and irritation. Using fresh herbs and ingredients to season food not only tastes fresher but can have medicinal properties depending on the herbs you’ve selected.
