If you read my full review then you know that I believe the benefits of an ab belt can be great IF you’re willing to put the work in.
I’m as guilt of being as lazy as the next person, but one thing I realized when I started using my ab belt was that I wasn’t going to get a flatter stomach and six pack abs by just sitting on the couch 30 minutes a day wearing this EMS device. I had to put more into it.
After some time on weight watchers and becoming a recreational runner I’ve learned quite a bit about basic diet and eating healthy. So I want to share with you three tips that I feel will make a huge impact on the results you achieve if you decide to try and ab toning device.
#1 Drink Water
You’re probably saying “drink water, wow this guys a genius”, but bare with me. There’s a purpose behind this. You see most people don’t drink enough water in the run of a day. This leaves your body mildly dehydrated, and causes your body to hold onto the water it does have because it’s not entirely sure when it will get more. If you’ve ever heard the term “water weight” this is where that comes from. Your body is holding onto more water then it needs because you’re not giving it enough.
So, the answer, drink more water. Try drinking at least 8 glasses a day. This will help get rid of the water weight, flush out toxins and I almost guarantee leave you feeling better all around.
#2 Eat your Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and Vegetables are more then just good nutrients for our body. They’re high in fibre which means then fill us up and make us feel less hungry. This means less snacking, less empty calories and ideally no more weight gain and possibly even weight loss. So try your best to eat 6-8 servings of veggies and/or fruits a day. You’ll snack less and feel a lot better!!!
#3 Portion Control
Chances are you’re eating more of everything in your life then what the recommended daily portion is. A good way to get this under control is to start looking at the packaging of the foods your eating and noticing what the suggested serving size is. You’ll be surprised that it’s a lot less then you likely thought.
I remember when I first started measuring out my portions. It was painful and I actually thought I was gonna starve the first few nights after dinner. However it didn’t take long for my body to adjust and now I can eat the right amount for me and avoid those extra calories. So give it a try at your next meal. Consider a healthy portion of carbs, protein and vegetables (or what ever it is you’re eating). It’ll help around the waist line and with belly fat.
The purpose behind all three of these tips is to reduce the number of calories you’re taking in, improve the quality of the calories you do eat and help keep your body hydrated. These are all important parts of leading a healthy lifestyle and losing weight!
