Life is full of surprise that can be pleasing and fill us with joy. However, surprises do not always prove to be in our favor, even when it comes to good news.
An example of them is when they invite us to an important social event from one day to another. At that time we try to find our best clothes and realize that the extra pounds we have do not allow us to wear it.
Here are some tricks and tips to lose some pounds in the last minute:
- Trim down carbs
Stay away from heavy carbs such as bagels and pasta. When you decrease the carbs in your diet, you temporarily train your body to access stored carbohydrates called glycogen and burn them off, while also eliminating excess stored fluids.
Trim back on your daily carbs by having eggs for breakfast, making your sandwich open-faced with only one slice of bread, and packing protein-rich snacks such as turkey slices, low-fat string cheese, seeds, and nuts.
- Ditch diet foods
Avoid low-calorie or low-carb products containing sugar alcohols, which go by the names xylitol or maltitol and cause gas, bloating, and worst—diarrhea. And don’t reach for a stick of gum when you’re trying to quell that sugar craving. Instead, satisfy your sweet tooth by using a little maple syrup on your morning oatmeal or yogurt snack.
- Switch your starch
If your belly bulges after a high-carb meal like pasta, complex carbohydrate-rich foods may be the cause of your bloat. Most starches, including potatoes, corn, pasta, and wheat, produce gas as they are broken down in the large intestine. Rice is the only starch that doesn’t cause gas, so have a ½-cup serving of brown rice (which has more fiber) if you want carbs with dinners.
- Papaya Mid-Evening Snack
Have a bowl full of ripe papaya as a mid-evening snack.Add just a dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice and beetroot salt to the papaya and enjoy it.Papaya is a wonderful low-calorie snack.It keeps your stomach full for longer time.It is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C and dietary fiber that prevents cholesterol, regulates stress hormone and thus promotes flat tummy.
- Bottle Gourd & Lemon Juice
For a flat tummy, daily have a glass of bottle gourd juice for breakfast. To get more effective results, mix 2 tbsp of lemon juice and a pinch of pepper and black salt. Bottle gourd is an extremely popular vegetable for losing belly fat and for weight loss.It’s a low-calorie food and it just contains about 14 calories per 100 gm of serving.
It is highly rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C, riboflavin and healthy minerals that boost metabolism, reduces bad cholesterol and unwanted fats, improves digestion and aids in weight loss.
