A sexy slim belly is a dream for most of us, but unfortunately we cannot reach it by exercise only because it has to do with what we eat. It is found that gluten is the main contributor to a puffy stomach; that is why we should eliminate it from our diet.
If you give up gluten for a week, you will see the difference; the whole grains are much healthier than the processed alternatives. If you pair this with 30 minutes cardio six times a week, you can have a show- off stomach.
Experts would say that you do not have to suck it so you can fit into your skinny jeans; they give us some tips to get the sleek- stomach we all crave. Actually, they swear their tips can make us shed pounds and inches.

Chewing food well till it is like apple sauce is very useful in so many levels; it makes you feel full with less food and it makes the food better digested which means less bloating. Last but not least is to use natural salt which is lower in sodium than the traditional table salt and of course to keep away form soy sauce because it is high in sodium.
