10 Tips For Women Who Want A Flat Tummy After 40
Say hello to your 40’s – the time of your life where merely smelling your dessert makes you feeling like your gaining weight. Yup, we feel you!
As women age, it becomes so much harder to lose weight and target certain areas of your body that feel out of shape. You start to notice that stretches and other body movements become a bit more difficult to achieve. Our metabolism slows down a great deal and body parts that were once shaped beautifully by muscle start sagging and packing extra weight. “What’s going on?” you think.

Well, let me tell you that this doesn’t have to be the case. It is very much possible to approach your 40’s cellulite-free and with a flat tummy. Yup, you heard me right. We came up with a list of ten items you definitely should look at if you want to look fab at 40!
A POUND A YEAR
Yup! Unfortunately, the myth is true. People between their 40’s and 50’s can gain up to a pound a year despite having the same diet. However, professionals have attributed the cause to a lower rate of activity. Simply put, we are not as active as we used to be. To fight the trend, establish an exercise routine that will fit your schedule and you can easily follow. Brisk walking at night, 2-3 yoga sessions a week or any other form of activity which will help you keep the pound away would do.
DRINK MORE, EAT LESS
Studies have shown that drinking a full glass of water before eating, preferably warm, helps, a lot in weight loss. Why? If you’re tummy is full from the water, you are more likely to eat less. It would also be good to take small sips in between your meals and before grabbing a snack. Many times, we think our body is asking for food when what we really need is a glass of water. Drinking lots of water is very beneficial for your body and is the best way to keep the pounds at bay.
