It is very common for individuals to seek a trim, toned body and one of the common areas people wish to improve is the shape and tone of their belly.

There are many exercises and diet plans that you can follow to bring your body back in shape and look amazing, in the event you’ve “let yourself go” over the years.

Amongst all the body fat and parts of the body where fat can accumulate, one of the most difficult places to shift fat is the stomach. There are various exercises that you can do to tone your abs, but of course there is no point having nice, toned abs if they are covered by a layer of fat!

5 Tips to Lose Weight Quickly

If you are committed to a proper weight loss plan then losing weight will happen. In most cases, you only need to make a few adjustments to eating habits and exercise. This way you would be able to tone your body and trim down, and stay that way.

Weight Loss Drinks May Help

Drink Lemon and Honey, in lukewarm water early in the morning is a great way to fire up the metabolism. And of course, every little bit extra helps! But don’t add a lot of honey to the drink or it won’t work the way it’s supposed to – you don’t want to load up on calories in drinks of course!

Diet Plan

Also eat smaller amounts at meal times, but more frequently, say 5 to 6 times a day is a great way to ensure that you do not overeat and also that you keep your metabolism firing. The common perception about weight loss would be to skip a meal, but this can cause more harm than good. In addition, have meals that are rich in protein and healthy. Of course, avoid consuming fatty or fried foods.

Regular Exercise

Of course, another way to increase calorie expenditure is to exercise frequently. And really when it comes to exercise, anything is better than nothing! So if you only have 15 minutes spare, go for a quick walks or jog. The main thing is to always be moving, as much as possible!

As a rule, you should aim to so some exercise daily – even if it’s 15 minutes like we said.

3 Exercises to Tone Abs

If you are looking for spot reduction, like to lose your belly and tone the abs only, then we have some bad news – there is no such thing as “spot reduction” or, losing fat from only one area. The key to losing weight in a given area is to lose weight overall.

But of course, to tone any muscle area, including the abs, you want to perform toning exercises.

Crunches

The ideal exercise for someone who is looking to tone their abs is crunches. You need to lay down on your back with you knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Put your hands under your head, and start moving your nose up to the roof and towards your knees. For added difficulty, try using a fitball!

 

Planks

Planks really work miraculously when it comes to toning your abs. All you have to do is hold you body in a push-up position for as long as you can. Even if you hold it for 10-15 seconds you are good to go.

Squats

Squats can be added to your daily workout routine to tone those abs. Place your legs apart and put your hands in front of your body, then just do sit ups. These squats build the strength of your body and allows a person to get strength in the muscles.

Happy ab toning!
