How can I get rid of this belly fat?

Posted by   + Show Post
I have had 3 kids and my body does not look the same, obviously because I had kids. I am 5'4" and 115 lbs so not overweight. My last child is now 2 1/2 so I know it is not baby weight from him. What kind of exercises can I do? Pics in replies. Please be nice.

Do you mind if I shoot you a PM? I have some questions about diet. Maybe you can give me some pointers we are in the weightloss group too but I hardly post & I know you've had success with weightloss and sticking to at home work outs plus changing your eating habits& I'm way out of my goal weight .

Quoting michiganmom116:

Quinoa is a seed, as is flax...both are okay.  Oats are a grain, along with rye, barley, corn... sprouted flours are no longer grains, but technically a vegetable and are okay to eat.

I don't worry about fat.  Natural fats are good to eat, not the manufactured fats like veggie or seed oils or margarine.

Quoting _abeauty92: Thanks for the help . When you say grains .. What about things like Oats, Quinoa, flaxseed ect?

I love bagels and cream cheese how can I supplement that? I buy the organic "sprout" bagels from whole foods and "light" or "reduced fat" cream cheese.

Quoting michiganmom116:

I use steamed cauliflower in place of macaroni, and shredded cabbage or spaghetti squash in place of spaghetti.

For sandwiches/tacos/buns, I'll use lettuce leaves or else make my own grain-free version using almond meal and/or coconut flour.

Quoting _abeauty92: What is your healthy alternative for pasta? And bread like sandwhiches an stuff?

Quoting michiganmom116:

My youngest baby is 14 yrs old, and my belly looks like yours if I eat grains/sugar.  Been in your position...I know how embarassing it is.

Quoting ZakkarysMom: And thanks for not making fun. lol

Quoting michiganmom116:

Clean up your diet by getting rid of processed foods.  Avoid grain products (unless you're eating a head of wheat, they're VERY processed) and sugar....both of those things feed a candida growth in the abdomen that causes bloating. 

Drink plenty of water.

Plank exercises are great for core strengthening, and cardio exercises will burn overall fat.
