Great Fitness Tips

If you want to have a strong healthy core, it is important to combine your abdominal workout exercises with a healthy diet. Here I would like to address the ways you can enhance your metabolism efficiently and proactively.

Catch Enough Zz’s… But Not Too Much

If you tend to put off your abdominal workout exercises and nervously snack, losing weight can be a huge challenge. Studies have shown a link between stress and increased fat storage in the abdominal area. Cortisol, a steroid hormone that initiates fat storage, is released during periods of prolonged stress. You need to find ways to lower your stress level during the day. Many people find benefits in meditating, taking regular walks, or reading.

Vitamin C

In addition to managing your stress on a daily basis, you can also control cortisol secretions with proper doses of vitamin C. Get a healthy intake of foods like red or green bell peppers, guava, brussels sprouts, kiwi, grapefruit, cantaloupe, and of course oranges.

Start On Soy

Apparently soy promotes weight loss more than dairy milk does. Just avoid products made with isolated soy protein.
