The only thing that really helps to shrink the waistline is reducing body fat, and the only way to do that is to create an “ongoing calorie deficit”, that is to say, consume fewer calories than your body uses. How? With healthy, low-calorie food and physical activity.
It’s impossible to lose fat in a localised way. When you lose weight, it is always over the whole body.
It’s worth noting that it’s impossible to lose fat in a localised way. When you lose weight, it is always over the whole body. However, everyone will first experience weight loss in a specific area or another depending on their genetics.
Setting appearance aside, we’d like to highlight that it’s always recommendable to reduce your waistline since its size is related to excess body fat. Plus, due to its proximity to the vital organs, there is a direct link with the risk of suffering cardiovascular diseases.
Drink at least 2 litres of water per day and do regular physical activity.
In addition to a loss of fat, there other tips to consider for a defined waistline:
- Do hypoppressive and traditional abdominal crunches to strengthen the muscles in that area.
- Avoid constipation to reduce swelling and to feel lighter: increase your fibre consumption, drink at least 2 litres of water per day and do regular physical activity.
- Reduce your intake of foods causing flatulence like cabbage, artichokes, pulses, fizzy drinks, fried foods, and foods high in fat.
- Dine early—before 7pm—so you can fast for 12 to 16 hours and allow the digestive system to have periods of rest and recovery.
