Summertime is here, meaning it’s time to start working on that tummy, follow this fun infographic guide to slimming the mid-section this season.
Carbs: Carbs cause a spike in your blood sugar levels, could cause your energy levels to spike and plummet, disrupting your sleep in the process. Avoid cake, cookies and other desserts as well as carby snacks like crackers or white bread and munch on an apple instead.
Salt: Avoid too much salt in the diet. Salt lies hidden in canned foods, baked foods, cured meats and how can we forget, potato wafers. Salt can draw water from the body and thereby give you the sluggish, flabby look.
Sugar Substitutes: A few of the sugar substitutes such as xylitol, maltitol are found in low sugar or sugar free products. These do not add to the calories but if taken in excess can cause gas.
