How To: Lose Belly Fat & Prevent Bloating

Hi everyone! Happy Monday :) I hope everyone's had a great weekend. I'm back with a new, highly requested, video on how to get rid of excess belly fat and how to prevent bloating. I've been "practicing" these tips for many years now and it's really helped me to keep the stomach in check. It's of course always a work in progress - and no one is perfect! Hopefully these tips will help and give you a few ideas on how to tone up your midriff.

Here's a summary of the video!

Remove Excess Fat
Note: Impossible to "spot reduce"
1. Cardio exercises (running, biking, swimming etc)
2. Ab & core strengthening workouts
3. Control your diet (eat clean & avoid processed food)
4. Don't skip meals (it throws off your metabolism)

Avoid Being Bloated
1. Eat fiber rich foods
2. Avoid overly salty & starchy foods
3. Get enough SLEEP
4. Drink lots of water!
5. Avoid stress

Other Tips
1. Have realistic expectations
2. Keep a good posture, sit up straight, stand up tall

  20. I love your videoes!
    I have a request on a video by the way. U mentioned on your bullying and high school advice video that you used to be very shy, how did u become more outgoing and so on? I am very shy too, and i hate it, because i suck at talking to people i dont know, and im so bad at keeping a conversation going.
    It would have been great if u did a video about that!

    And one more thing! Can u maybe also do a video on how you remove you facial hair/upper lip sometime? Thats a problem many girls are struggeling with and are embaressed about (including me)

    Thanks! I love you blog and your vidoes and i loe you Annie! :))

  30. Burning fats doesn’t only need diet supplements to take the job. It also requires healthy eating habits and a daily routine to boost up the metabolism. Strength exercise such as push-ups and weight lifting are the best exercises for burning fats and building muscles. Weights can convert fats into muscles thus making it easy to burn more fats.
