  1. Eat with a low Glycemic Index (GI)

    GI is measured on a scale of 0 to 100, where foods with a GI above 55 increase blood sugar levels, and foods with a GI below 55. Avoiding refined foods, such as white rice, white bread, and potatoes are a good start. Try substituting these items with whole grain and unrefined options.

  2. Tabata focused on your stomach

    Tabata is a type of exercise, referred to as high intensity interval training, is great for those with limited time but still want to get the benefits of a full workout. Tabata workouts can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes, or more if you have the time!

  3. Add Olive Oil to your diet

    Studies indicate that olive oil can help with satiation (or the feeling of fullness). In addition, olive oil is a healthy fat, which is great for decreasing cholesterol and increasing overall heart health.

  4. Get plenty of sleep

    Your body is a natural clock in every way. Letting one lifestyle choice get out of whack can really mess with things like your metabolism or biorhythms, such is the issue with not getting enough sleep or not maintaining a regular sleeping schedule.

  6. Cut out the junk

    Remove soda, fast food, chips, candy, and other items high in sodium, sugar, or with a high GI. There is not necessarily a need to cut calories, but make sure you limit your eating to only the healthiest choices!
