Time of Carbs
You should have carbs first thing in the morning or an hour before a training session or right after an intense workout. If you do that, your body will less likely store them as fat.
You should drink water at regular intervals throughout the day. It can help with cellulite elimination, fat loss, and getting a slim waistline. Your aim should be to drink three liters of water a day and never drink less than two liters, especially if you have an active life or workout regularly.
It is a good idea to include weight training in your workouts as it will eliminate body fat swiftly and reduce your waistline. You should do as many compound exercises as possible. Some of the exercises you can regularly do are lunges, push-ups, squats, and rows. They are awesome as they work the abdominals and work more than one muscle group at the same time.
You should not spend too much time in doing cardio exercises. The best cardio methods you can go for are High-Intensity Interval Training on a treadmill that is set on a high incline or interval training. You can go for short periods of intense work like running and power walking and follow them up with short rest periods. Repeat this for at least 10 and 15 minutes to make it fruitful.
