How to Lose Baby Belly-Top 10 Healthy Ways To Lose Belly Fat


There are a number of reason why you are carrying excess fat in your belly area. Of course, the most obvious is because you just have had a baby! Other reasons are excess fat you may have had before you had your little one, toxins, and weak muscles.

There are things that you can do to lose your baby belly and to have those flat abs you desire. In the following article, Angela Ambrosia discussed the healthy ways to achieve your goals. I liked what she had to say so I thought I'd share it with you.

Top 10 Healthy Ways To Lose Belly Fat By Angela Ambrosia

Belly Fat is a combination of excess fat tissue, toxins stored in fat, bloated bowels and lazy muscles. Here are 10 ways to get rid of the obstacles creating your belly fat.

1. Drink the right type of water.

Belly fat is made of fat cells storing built up toxins. In order to get rid of the fat and toxins in your cells, drink BEV (Bio-Electronic Vincent) water or filtered water that uses reverse-osmosis filtration. This water attracts the heavy toxins from fat and pulls it out the body. The less minerals and metals in the water - the more the water can remove the dense stuff from your belly!

2. Give your bowels a holiday from Gluten!

Some of the hardest foods for the bowel to break down are gluten-based foods. Remove gluten based products such as wheat, oats, barley and rye for a week and see how your belly flattens. Just removing wheat for a week will give visible results!

3. Cut out Cheese.

Cheese acts like a gummy substance in the intestines - look at how it stretches like rubber on pizza. It's just like that in the guts! Removing cheese from the diet will stop clogging up your intestines and making your belly fat!

4. Breathing into the thymus and "energetic heart" area.

Place your palm in between your breasts and you've found the thymus. This area is also the energetic center for the heart. Breathe into and lift this heart and thymus area and as you breathe out drop the shoulders. As you do this type of breathing into the energetic heart and thymus, you're lifting the lower belly muscles and activating the ab muscles that facilitate breathing, shape the waist and pull in the girdle of muscles that pull in your belly "pooch".

5. Move your Navel into the Spine.

Pull the navel into the spine whenever you're sitting, driving, walking and exercising. Start to notice when you let your belly pooch just hang out and how you can activate the navel and pull it into the back of the body. This move activates all the central ab muscles that balance, support and turn the spine and torso. Remember to keep breathing while you retrain your belly muscles to pull in to support the spine.

6. Curl your Tail up and Under.

When you do squats, lunges, pelvic lifts and even when you're walking, experiment with pulling your tail under so you slightly tighten the lower butt muscles. This move supports the motion of pulling the navel into the spine and gives an opposition to the girdle of ab muscles for your lower belly. It's a slight move and you can add extra muscle intensity to find how to activate the pelvic floor, which is connected to and tones your lower belly muscles.

7. Scooping Into the Deeper Ab Muscles.

Forget Ab "crunches" that focus on superficial abs. When you do any bending movement, start imagining the deepest ab muscle - the PSOAS. The psoas starts from the inside thigh, goes up the back of the pelvis and follows up the spine to the back of the "energetic heart" area - or where the diaphragm inserts into the spine (around the bra strap for women). As you pull into your crunches or bending moves, visualize scooping into this long muscle that supports all the muscles and organs of the belly. When you use this visualization, you'll get more connection between your belly and your back muscles and you'll have something to pull your belly in to!

8. Massage the Belly.

Built up toxins and waste can be moved by gentle massage. Using a clockwise circle on the belly, starting under the right hand side of the chest, massage with your fingers and palm, to cover the entire belly area. Use the tips of the fingers to dig into belly and move stagnant energy. Use the palm of the hand to hold and nurture parts of your belly that want nurturing and encouragement. Kindly tell your belly with your touch that its time to move the fat and toxins out!

9. If you're over 35 use a DHEA Supplement.

DHEA is a growth hormone, which declines after the age of 35 resulting in excess fat storage around the belly. The leading scientist on DHEA, Stephen Cherniske M.S. recommends 10-25 milligrams DHEA and 25-50 milligrams of 7-keto daily as a safe dosage. Excess use of the hormone will cause hormonal imbalances. Two other important body building supplements for encouraging fat metabolism are l-carnitine (or acetyl l-carnitine) and alpha lipoic acid. Recommended daily safe dosages are 200mg to 500 mg of l-carnitine and 100-500mg of lipoic acid.

10. Monitor your coffee intake.

Some caffeine is better than others. Coffee really depletes the body of DHEA and other minerals that control fat gain around the belly. Try green tea drinks that are free of fake sugar. Some white teas, red tea, rooibos and other high antioxidant teas may be better for your metabolism than coffee and will give even energy instead of the coffee highs and lows. As you age, you may notice a difference of how caffeine affects you. Be sensitive to changes in your body and try different sources of caffeine to see how different teas and energy drinks affect the stability of your energy.

How to Lose Baby Belly Fast-Follow These 9 "Oh, Wow!" Strategies To Help You Shed Those Pounds

Everybody knows that losing baby weight can be a challenge for some. Everybody says that sometimes, trying something which challenges their body in a different way can be highly effective.

In the following article, you will learn about different strategies you may not have thought off which can help you drop those pounds.

Best Weight Loss Advice You've Never Heard
9 "Oh, wow!" strategies to help you shed those pounds.

By Kathleen Doheny
WebMD Feature Reviewed by Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD

You’re ready to lose some weight. But you're tired of listening to all that stale, tried-and-true weight loss advice, like eating more vegetables, limiting portions, and exercising more.

Maybe what you need is a fresh idea or two. So WebMD asked diet experts to come up with some lesser-known diet tips that could make the most jaded dieter drop that cookie and vow, "Oh wow! I'll try that today."

Here are nine diet tips you may not have not heard yet.  Some involve different ways to eat, or adding certain foods to your diet. Others involve learning new behaviors or strategies to help you stay on track.

Weight Loss Tip No. 1: Variety Is Overrated

Who hasn't heard the advice to "just take a bite of everything" if you're at a buffet?

But as it turns out, variety doesn't deserve its good reputation, says Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, a Chicago dietitian and author of The Flexitarian Diet.

 "We know that variety makes you eat more," she says, citing several published studies and her own experience in counseling weight loss patients.

For example, researchers in France found that study participants ate more french fries when they were offered catsup and mayonnaise along with them. And when they were given the option of having cream or whipped cream with their brownies, they ate more than when the brownies were offered plain.

Other researchers have found that people who have been able to maintain weight loss tend to eat diets with limited variety.

Weight Loss Tip No. 2: Have Barley for Breakfast

"Barley is the new oatmeal," says Jackson Blatner.

Barley got its hunger-fighting reputation after Swedish researchers found that eating barley or rye kernels for breakfast kept blood sugar on an even keel. That's because the carbs in barley and rye kernels are "low glycemic index," meaning they raise blood sugar more slowly than some other carbohydrate foods. This helps you avoid a spike, and then a drop, in blood sugar, which can leave you feeling famished.

One caveat: "Buy hulled barely, not pearl barley," Jackson Blatner says. The Swedish researchers used minimally processed hull barley, and they can't vouch for the same effects for more processed forms, such as pearl barley.

Weight Loss Tip No. 3: Beef Up Your Lunch Salad

One of the most common mistakes dieters make is to eat a vegetable salad with little or no dressing for lunch, says Joan Salge Blake, RD, professor of nutrition at Boston University and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. "Then they are starving by mid-afternoon," she says.

A salad is a great choice, she says, if you add some protein and a little fat to help keep you feeling full longer.

Top your greens with a 3 oz piece of chicken breast, and you've added about 26 grams of protein but just 140 calories. Add about two tablespoons of light salad dressing, and your salad may be filling enough to get you through the 3 p.m. hunger slump without hitting the vending machine.
