STILL TRYING TO ACHIEVE THAT FLAT BELLY?

Aren't we all?!  I get this query often. You're not alone. It IS possible with a little added discipline and consistency.  Add at least one of my tips and you will experience success.

MY TOP 10 TIPS:

1) JUMP!  Fire up your core in my Video #6

2) WINTER SOUP NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD

A liquid form at dinner gives our digestive system a much needed break as there are less solids to process. Try a puree of veggies with organic low sodium chicken or vegetable broth.

3) INTERMITTENT FAST

Allow14-16 hours between dinner and your 1st meal the next day. This next day consume 3 small meals comprising a total of half of your typical calories. Digestion lasts 8 hours and then our bodies begin to detox.  Please drink water during the fast.

Bonus Tip: do your cardio during the fast 

4) TRAIN YOUR ABDOMINALS                                                                                                                                                                                        

Do any of the following consistently: plank variations, hanging abdominals, physio ball variations, Pilates ab series, Bosu variations

5) GET GOOD SLEEP                                                                                                                                                                                                       

Sleep deprivation causes a rise in the cortisol hormone which leads to excessive belly fat

6) LET GO OF STRESS                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Stress leads to triggers which can lead to over-eating and excessive cortisol which perpetuates belly fat

7) LEAD WITH GOOD POSTURE                                                                                                                                                                              

ABS in and up! Channel all the great work you do in the studio (dance, Pilates, cross-fit, yoga) to your everyday life. As you sit in your office chair, as you enter a room, as you do the dishes, deepen your abdominals both in to the spine and up along the spine. This action leads to ideal posture, spinal support and the appearance of a beautiful midriff.

8) AIM FOR A CLEAN GUT                                                                                                                                                                                            

Add probiotics to your everyday to ensure your healthiest bacterial balance in your gut. This balance determines how one ultimately processes nutrients and one's potential for weight loss. 

9) ELIMINATE REGULARLY                                                                                                                                                                                          

Are you eliminating 1-3x/day? If not, get on the case. (Tips 2, 8 and 10 will help)

10) CLEANSE                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Do a 3-7 days seasonal cleanse. Recharge your cellular structure and witness your covered abs appear.
