1. Eat six small meals a day
The secret to revving up your metabolism and getting rid of the abdominal fat is a change in diet. Start by eating five or six small meals a day. “If you eat large meals and leave a lot of space between eating, your body will think you are starving yourself and as a result will store most of the calories as body fat,” says Meghan Callaway, a Vancouver-based personal trainer.
She recommends eating your biggest meal of the day at breakfast, within 30 minutes of the time you wake up. It’s also important to drink lots of water during the day, which will limit water retention, aid in digestion and keep you feeling fuller between meals.
