Better digested food means less gas, bloating and fat in the body. If you eat every three hours you will avoid a large amount of food in the stomach after an over-hunger and will still stimulate metabolism. This is because every time we eat a food, the body has to expend energy to digest it. If our metabolism is low, we burn few calories, if high we burn many calories. But keep in mind that snacks to be taken between meal times on a fast tummy-dry diet must be protein-based and healthy. Opt for a protein bar, a low-fat piece of cheese, or some almonds with an organic apple. Always eat the nearest zero grams of sugar. This will keep insulin levels low and glucagon levels high. Glucagon is a hormone that struggles to make your belly flat. As it travels around your waist, it devours fat to use it as energy. And the equation is clear: low insulin and high glucagon. The culprit of making your belly bulge may be the salt in your diet. So use natural sea salt or kosher salt , which is lower in teaspoon sodium content than traditional table salts. And stay away from soy sauce as it is high in sodium and will make the swelling in the abdomen almost instantaneous.
