7 days to a flat stomach

7 DAYS TO A FLAT TUMMY MEAL PLAN
(approx. 1500 cals a day)

With summer just around the corner many of us are gearing up to get our bodies crop top ready.

Unfortunately, simply adding ab exercises to the end of every gym workout won’t give you a flat stomach. The key is to eat a healthier diet, removing processed foods that cause bloating to reveal the six pack underneath that you’ve been working so hard on! I’m not going to tell you there’s a specific food for a flat stomach - because lets face it, you will have to eat a lot of grapefruits for the fat loss effect to be apparent – but what I will tell you is that cleaning up your diet plan will help you get your flat tummy!

Try this 7 day diet plan for a flat tummy to help reduce bloating and slim your waistline without any exercise!

Tip: Having a varied diet will help make meal time more exciting and keep you motivated. Why not try Meat Free Monday to bring a wider range of plant based foods into your diet?

7 day flat stomach meal plan

Tip: Consume more protein in place of carbohydrates and fats. Protein requires more energy to be broken down in the stomach, therefore it increases your metabolism. It also helps to suppress hunger.

7 day flat stomach meal plan

Tip: Our bodies need dietary fat (also known as essential fats) in order to lose weight and function properly. Essential fats help increase satiety, boost your metabolism, speed nutrients through your body, and improve your fat-soluble vitamin uptake.

7 day flat stomach meal plan

Tip: Accompany your breakfast with a cup of herbal tea. Green tea is high in a type of antioxidant called catechins, which may boost metabolism and increase fat burning.

7 day flat stomach meal plan

Tip: Don’t skip breakfast! Overnight our bodies exhaust our glycogen stores (aka energy stores). Breakfast is the first opportunity to refuel those stores, therefore if you skip it then our bodies go to the next best option - our fat stores. This is not a good thing because fat does not work as well as glycogen in providing fast energy. It leaves you feeling more prone to fatigue and because our brains also function using glycogen, it means our brains will not be operating at its optimum. 

7 day flat stomach meal plan

Tip: higher fibre (in particular soluble fibre) intake is an ultimate flat tummy food linked to a lower risk of belly fat. Soluble fibre slows down how fast the stomach releases digested food into the gut which helps to curb appetite and reduce calorie intake.

7 day flat stomach meal plan

Tip: Try to eat more complex carbohydrates such as brown rice, sweet potato, whole wheat pasta and quinoa. These all have a low glycemic index which means the sugar that is released into your body from these foods is consumed at a slow rate. In contrast to this, simple sugars such as white rice should be avoided as they have a high GI, which means they will satisfy you quickly but make you hungry again pretty quickly after.
