Make Your Waist Look Smaller

One of the best ways to avoid looking fat around the middle is to hold your stomach in. The act of doing this is actually as isometric exercise and its a good way to tone a variety of muscles. One of the problems in doing this is feeling bloated. The last thing you will want to do when you feel bloated is to suck in your gut. One of the best ways to eliminate this feeling is to eliminate salty foods. This includes but is not limited to olives, salted nuts/pretzels, soups, pickles and even many dairy products.
Also eating many white flour foods, large meals and simple carbs tends to increase the production of insulin. This in turn reduces the body's ability to excrete sodium. Exercise can help reduce sodium levels which is way you may of noticed that sweat is salty. This is accomplished by helping the lymphatic system reduce fluid from the tissues. Dehydration on the other hand, is caused by lack of fluids or excess alcohol. This will make the body preserve extra fluid. You can actually get rid of excess water (or bloating ) by drinking extra water. Potassium and magnesium also help regulate body fluids. You may want to help yourself to some cantaloupe and bananas or try a vitamin supplement.
