1. You’re doing the wrong workout

Many people turn to steady-state cardio workouts, like long jogs, when trying to slim down.

It can last up to two days after your training session. 

2. You fall short on magnesium

Our bodies require magnesium for more than 300 chemical reactions, including keeping heart rhythm steady and regulating blood sugar levels, but in addition to its health benefits, this nutrient may also aid in weight loss and body shaping. Eat more magnesium-rich foods, such as leafy green vegetables, beans, and nuts. Or talk to your doctor about taking a supplement. 

3. You Don’t Sleep Enough

Not getting enough sleep can have serious consequences for your waistline. Why? Too little sleep causes an increase in a hormone called ghrelin that stimulates appetite. Get the expert-recommended seven to nine hours of sleep a night.

4. You’re hooked on soda

Sugary soda, packed with empty calories, is obviously a diet disaster, but even the no-calorie version can expand your waistline. Regular soda is associated with increased waist size and abdominal fat. If you’re bored with H20, sweeten it with slices of fruit. Coffee is also fine, but minimize high-calorie additions.

5. You drink too much

Several studies show that alcohol can increase appetite and food intake, and certain types of alcohol are associated with belly fat specifically. It’s fine to enjoy a glass of wine or clear liquor every so often with a meal. But avoid soda and sugary mixers.

Learning effective methods for shrinking your waistline is worth the effort so just keep trying.
