Women Health: Lose Belly Fat In Nigeria

Having to struggle with stubborn and abdominal fat is like trying to kill nothing, you just can't get rid of them, and exercising most times isn't fun for most ladies due to their daily schedules and health challenges. But before you give up on getting the that slimmed look, below are some methods which can give you a slimmer figure in a couple of months, weeks or days depending on your practice.
Below are tricks to do/use if you want to get rid of stomach fat.

1. Exercise and eat right
No kidding, right? Yet so many of us sabotage this no-brainer of a gut-busting plan. Study after study proves that eating a well-balanced diet heavy in fruits, veggies and whole grains and low in fat and refined sugars, plus exercising regularly, will help you shed not only subcutaneous fat (the surface fat that makes love handles), but also the deeper visceral fat, which builds up around abdominal organs and can raise your chance of suffering high cholesterol, heart disease, or type 2 diabetes.
And regular exercise not only helps you slim down your whole body, it actually shrinks the size of fat cells in your stomach.

2. Don't be a stress case
The link between stress and belly fat is a case still being studied by Scientists. Heightened cortisol levels in blood, resulting from stress, seem to react with the body's insulin to create visceral abdominal fat -- and, in a double whammy, to also drive us toward fatty, sugary foods. Reducing stress may make it easier to say no to barbecue chips or chocolate truffles that go straight to the waistline. Try yoga as a way of cutting stress. Bonus: it'll tone you, too. And if your daily commute is a cause of stress, wear an iPod or read a funny book to help you chill out on public transportation; if you drive, consider ways to reduce your commuting time.

3.  Use Waist trainers

Waist training is a great way to lose a couple of inches around the waist but It isn't just meant for shaping and reduce your waist size, it also motivates you to achieve that sexy silhouette you get when wearing a waist trainer.

2. Buy Quality Waist Trainers

Discuss on Menstruation

Couple of times  I've wondered why most females suffer from unwanted cramps before or during menstruation.
Although menstruation is a normal occurrence for ladies but cramps do not affect every lady...

A little here and there about Menstrual cramps
Menstrual Cramps, also known as dysmenorrhea are of two types;
•°• Primary Dysmenorrhea (common menstrual cramp)
•°• Secondary Dysmenorrhea.

Primary Dysmenorrhea starts one or two years after a lady starts menstruating and the pain is felt in the abdomen or back. This cramp maybe mild or severe and often start shortly before or during menstruation. According to medical scientists, the common menstrual cramp may stop entirely after a woman welcomes her first child.

The secondary Dysmenorrhea is abnormal because it is caused by a disorder in the woman's reproductive system. It last longer than the primary dysmenorrhea. And special attention needs to be paid to ladies encountering such cramps.

Do You Know?
Menstrual Cramps exists as a result of contraction in the uterus(a muscle).

From the above, one can judge for herself if menstrual cramps are normal...
Definitely common menstrual cramps are normal and can be managed...

Drinking Enough Water
Water is life and I do not see how anyone can survive without drinking water. It is important that you drink enough water each day to maintain the level of hydration in hour body. Having little or no water at in your body can lead to dehydration, which in turn affects the appearance of your skin in an unpleasant and unwanted way. 
It's advisable that you make drinking of water a daily habit if you wish to maintain sufficient hydration levels and avoid an unhealthy pallor to the skin and eyes that appear dull and sunken.

Consistent failure to clear make-up from your face each time you want to go to bed could begin to have effects on the skin.
