One of the most common weight problems that probably all women face at some point: muffins. They top the reason why you refuse to wear the swimsuit of your dreams and don’t even think about buying that fancy dress you spotted on the store.

The problem is that most of us, let’s say, aren’t that confident when looking at our extra chubs. Well, nothing to really worry about! Here we have the ultimate guide for a flat belly! Get ready to say goodbye to muffin top!
• Exercise that Body!
We’ve all been there, we know how hard it is to leave you comfy chair and your favorite show to head to the gym. Moreover, sometimes working out of the door is even harder than going to the gym as there are so many things that you can get distracted by. However, making the first step is the hardest phase, once you do that and make workout part of your routine you won’t be able to quit anymore. It’s a lifestyle!
• Cardio- a 20-30 minute cardio can be the key to success when it comes to shaping the perfect body! You can either start with walking or jogging or even enjoy bicycling if the weather allows you to do so. The choice is yours!
• Side Bends- 3 sets of 15 per side is perfect and will definitely lead to the desired results.
• Hip Twists- this exercise will help you to strengthen your abdominals and define your waist. 3 sets of 30 is enough.
• Planking- start with 3 sets of 30 seconds and once you cope with that level you can try to hold up to 60 seconds.
Other exercises that you might consider adding to your routine are: jackknifing (3 sets of 15), Push Ups (3 sets of 10), Bicycle Crunches (3 sets of 30) and weighted twists (3 sets of 30).
• What to Eat
It is very important to provide the needed proportions of food, especially when you start intensively working out you need to regain the energy that you’ve spent. To eat healthy, first of all you need to avoid high-calorie foods (sweets, fast food, sodas etc.). Instead we suggest sticking with nutritious diets that offer mainly low-calorie foods. Note that protein is a must if you want to build muscles.
