EAT GINGER

Before your workout to prevent post-workout soreness. Used for centuries to help relieve digestive upset/disturbances, ginger can also help reduce inflammation, boost blood flow to muscles and aid muscle recovery It has also has been shown to boost calorie burn when eaten.

THE NEW QUINOA

Fewer calories than rice with tree times as much fiber, plus protein and antioxidant… Quinoa, an ancient grain and a complete protein, decreases appetite and is rich in amino acids and vitamin E.

MINERAL WATER 

Is more hydrating than tap or plain bottled water. It contains bicarbonate (an electrolyte) and calcium, which improves hydrating so you don’t fatigue. We like to make it at home.

THINK TWICE

Before eating your next slice of pizza…  The crust in ONE slice of pizza has as many calories as tree slices of bread.

EAT YOGURT

To reduce belly fat storage, as part of the Flat Belly Plan; you should eat about 6 ounces of low-fat Greek yogurt before every meal. Why? It’s thought that calcium can help stop fat from entering your cells, improve your body’s ability to break down fat and help your body carry out fat through your bowel movements. Apples to fill you up on a few calories, lentils to bust fat burning.
