1. Enhancement of Liver function:

The liver as we all know is a vital organ of the digestive system which aid in detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion. It also produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of lipids. Once the bile lacks the regulatory materials to function, an impending tummy protrusion ensues.

Reducing abdominal fat is 80% about eating the right food. In other for the liver to function properly you need to maintain a healthy and balanced diet, with adequate macro and micro nutrients. Most importantly, skip takeaways and fast foods. Eat food prepared at home. Don’t have time? Go for raw fruits or veggies, or steam cooked veggies instead.

3. Drink Water:

Many get confused between being thirsty, tired or hungry, and end up nibbling sugary or fatty food. Always carry a water bottle. And make sure you keep sipping water throughout the day. One need to drink 6 – 8 glasses of water, though this depends on your weight and lifestyle. Calculate accordingly and make sure you consume enough water.

4. Short Bursts:

According to recent studies, instead of working out for hours or running a few miles, doing short bursts of active exercises is very helpful in reducing stubborn fat. For example, if you are walking on a treadmill, randomly increase the speed for a few seconds and get back to walking.

5. Say No to Sugar:

Sugar is one thing you should greatly reduce, if not omit from your daily platter. There are many sources of hidden sugar, so it’s a good idea to reduce sugar. Use alternatives like honey, palm sugar and licorice extract.

6. Reduce Sodium intake:

Of course, you need to add salt to your food. Besides sodium salt, you have potassium, lemon and sea salts you can consider. Also, adding spices like pepper, a few herbs also helps reduce salt requirement.

7. Vitamin C:

Vitamin C is important for the secretion of carnitine, a compound that helps body convert fat into energy. Besides, it also helps block cortisol, a hormone that’s secreted by the body when under stress. Spike in cortisol levels is the main reason for abdominal fat.

8. Fat burning foods:

There are many natural ways to reduce fat. . Garlic, onion, ginger, cayenne pepper, cabbage, tomato, spices like cinnamon and mustard are some of the fat reducing foods. Consuming a few cloves of raw garlic and a 1-inch piece of ginger every morning is good for fat metabolism.

Having a glass of warm water with lemon juice and honey in the morning, is a popular option for weight loss. Similarly, there are many other ways to induct fat burning foods in one’s diet.

Also, when trying to get rid of bad cholesterol, addition of good cholesterol can be helpful. Avocados, olives, coconut and nuts are few sources of good cholesterol.

9. Do not skip breakfast:

Many think skipping breakfast helps with quick weight loss. On the contrary, skipping breakfast is a major blunder. It increases bloating and pushes your body into starvation mode, a key for abdominal fat gain.

Latest studies reveal having smaller and frequent meals is the key to maintain a healthy metabolism rate, which is important for weight management. So reduce the size of your meals and make up for it by snacking healthy. You could consider having dry fruits and nuts, raw veggies or fruits and steamed veggies.

Prison Bae: This Model From Miami Might Have The Hottest Mugshot Of The Year (Photo)

There aren’t many things in this world more bittersweet than taking an attractive mugshot.Being able to look attractive at one of life’s lowest moments is a truly admirable feat, and anyone capable of turning heads while facing criminal charges certainly deserves credit for it.Unfortunately, there’s one major problem with having a hot mugshot: The fact that it’s a mugshot in the first place.I’m willing to guess that 22-year-old Angela Coates wasn’t exactly thrilled to be arrested for disorderly conduct back in August.However, something tells me that the model wasn’t too disappointed with the results of the picture she took while being processed.In the Year of the Attractive Mugshot, it’s not easy to set yourself apart, but showing up to jail looking like this is a pretty good strategy when it comes to getting everyone’s attention.
