When it comes to losing weight, one thing that many people intend to focus on is losing tummy fat and getting that flat stomach that they have always dreamed of. I’m sure you know all of the fundamentals for making this happen, about all of dietary changes you need to make and all of the dedicated exercise that you need to do, but have you remembered to consider just how important water is too? Here is how to drink water to get a flat stomach.
1. Step 1
To be most effective, you need to make sure that the water you are drinking is ice cold, because this is the best way to boost your metabolism. Your body goes in to overdrive trying to warm up the water inside you, and this will result in burning much more energy both then and for the next few hours before you drink another ice cold glass to start the process all over again.
2. Step 2
You can cut hundreds of calories from your diet by drinking water in place of the sugary sodas and high-calorie juices that you might assume are healthy but are actually full of calories. You can save up to as many as 300 calories just from making this simple switch, and water is just as quenching and satisfying as any other type of beverage!
3. Step 3
Get into the habit of drinking a pint of cold water before you sit down to eat a big main meal. Not only does it give you that metabolism boost ready to receive the food, but it will also result in you eating much less because your stomach will feel fuller quicker. It is an easy and instant way to stop yourself from overeating, even if the mental temptation is there, you physically won’t be able to do it.
4. Step 4
You can also use hot water to help your quest for a flat stomach. Drink oolong tea and green tea. Both of these teas contain catechins that can massively increase the productivity and pace of metabolism which is the number one way to start reducing body fat. They both also have the effect of being good appetite suppressants, which will obviously encourage you to eat less in the first place.
