Causes of Big Tummy and How to Have a Flat Tummy
The below are some of the major reasons you don’t have a flat tummy:
Having too much sugar in your diet has a way of increasing your body fat. Sugar is one major component of our common foods. Sugar is a component of our everyday juice, baked foods, rice, ice creams etc. If you plan to have a flat tummy then you must cut down your intake of sugar to a great extent.
Fat occurs when you have excess energy in the form of sugar in your body. This sugar is then converted into glycogen and stored in your body. The reoccurrence of this process leads to your tummy being fat. See here on how to lose fat. So you must eat proportionally as you tend to be active. If you plan to relax then reduce your food intake for that period.
By eating habit I mean your schedule, when and how you eat. If you eat around the clock especially at night then your tummy will most likely not be flat as you desire. You must understand that during the night our digestive system is no longer at it’s best performance and so eating at such a time will only mean a bulk of them will not be utilized, the food I mean. This is also a period of inactivity if you sleep immediately after eating. Eating carbohydrate at night only lives your body storing more and more fat since our body stores carbohydrate. If you must have to eat late at night then why not have a light protein then. As our body doesn’t store protein as it does store carbohydrate. The major function of proteins in our diet is for repair of worn out tissues. So if you must have a flat tummy you must reduce your intake of carbohydrate and other heavy meals at night.
Yes! Not having enough sleep has a way of affecting the normal metabolic activities of your body which might lead to a fat tummy. So have a good night rest it will help flatten your tummy.
Fibers have a way of giving you a greater satisfaction for a lesser amount of food. Fiber in your diet helps reduce the feeling of hunger which will directly tend to reduce the amount of food you eat and also reduce your belly fat on a long run. So have a good amount of fibers in your diet to have a flat tummy.
