Stop Eating These 4 Foods If You Want a Flat Belly

Every normal person has a picture in their mind of how they’d love to physical look like. But the issue however, is that many of them are not ready to take bold steps towards that dream of theirs. This is mainly because they have in mind that it would take too much work and effort. Albeit this might be true, it doesn’t mean it is totally impossible. All you need to do is to one step at a time, and with patience and perseverance, you would surely get there.
The first step you would have to take is eliminating certain foods from your daily meal plans. These foods not only cause physical discomfort but are also a barrier to getting the abs of your dreams. Whether it’s from bloat or you’re carrying those last extra five pounds around your middle, do yourself a favour and cut these 4 foods out of your diet now.

1. Soda

Soda not only adds extra calories to your system, but these carbonated drinks can often cause excessive bloating. So even though it is true that some sodas are very low in calories, they can still cause gas to get trapped in your stomach. A huge step towards reaching the abs of your dreams would be scratching these drinks off your diet lists.

2. Alcohol

People will always have their various reasons for taking alcohol and to some extent, it’s actually justifiable – because studies have shown that regular, moderate consumption of 5 to 30 grams a day of an alcoholic beverage can reduce the risk of heart disease in men by 51%.
Nonetheless, it poses two problems: Firstly, just like sweets, it has a very high caloric content with little or no nutritional benefit. Secondly, when it comes to alcohol, drinking one drink often leads to drinking more. So indulging in alcohol just for one night, can lead to consuming hundreds or even thousands of extra calories that you would normally not have consumed. And of course, when you’re drunk or tipsy, you end up making bad eating choices.

3. Refined carbohydrates

Refined carbohydrates are also very tempting and they’re always very easy to prepare. However, if you’re looking to have a better-shaped belly, you must avoid these foods as best as you can. If your choice carbs are made of white flours, start to weed those out of your diet because they get digested very quickly, causing a spike in your blood sugar and insulin levels. Scientist claim that since insulin is known as a “fat storage hormone”, the more insulin circulating in your blood, the more likely your body will convert the carbs you eat into fat and will store them mostly in your stomach.
Instead of white flour, switch to whole wheat flour and instead of eating more of carbs, add more lean proteins to your daily diet.

4. Dairy

Even though it’s through that dairy is a great source of calcium, if you’re looking towards a flatter belly, you may want to avoid it. Especially if you’re lactose intolerant, consuming anything containing dairy can cause gas and bloating. You can choose aged cheeses and yogurts, which are lower in lactose.


Having that flat stomach that you’ve always dreamt of is can come into reality. Your first step however, should be eliminating these foods from your daily meals.
