Abs, Part I

What better time to start our four-week abs mini-makeover than taday, on World Health Day? But don't worry, I'm not going to take on the whole world. I have three suggestions to jump-start our path to a trim tummy.
1. Cut out alcohol AND all soda! Alcohol has no nutritional value, and it's converted to fat, which translates to tummy trouble. Even diet soda is bad, as artificial sweeteners have been found to stimulate your appetite. I like to sip flavored water instead.
2. Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. When you're sleep-deprived, your body produces stress hormones, which may increase your appetite.
3. Brush your teeth right after you eat to keep from nibbling. Have you ever tried drinking a soda or eating a handful of chips after brushing your teeth? Yuck!

Next Monday I'll go over a fcw simple exercises targeting the belly. In the mean time, keep motivated by browsing our belly-baring swimwear and Sexy Lingerie Sets and know that you are three steps closer to a toned tummy. Share your progress and/or struggles in the next weeks. You can post annonymous comments, so don't be shy! :)
