Another thing to avoid is carbonated drinks instead drink more. It is recommended to drink 6-8 glasses of water every day. This will not only help you eat less, it also prevents dehydration which causes belly bloat. Water also helps with your body’s digestion process and at the same time will give your skin a healthy complexion.
Have a daily workout regime. This routine exercises for about 30 minutes every day can help you boost your metabolism and in effect your digestion. You can also do jogging, running, and walking to help you increase your heart rate. You can also take up sports as a useful hobby like swimming or cycling. Intersperse these aerobic exercises with anaerobic training to help your endurance and tone your muscles.
Do various abdominal exercises like abdominal crunches, stomach twisting, hip raise exercises and many other kinds of exercises that you could incorporate in your daily workout routine.
Losing weight and having a flat stomach can be really difficult but as always patience is one of the most important attitudes that you need to have.  Being focused and determined will also be productive in order for you to achieve the body you always wanted.
