You literally have the power to naturally “staple your stomach” so that you get the feeling of being fuller faster.
It all begins by eating smaller portions of food throughout the day. Since you are eating every 3 hours there is no longer a need to consume a massive meal at any point during the day in hopes that it will carry you for a long period of time.
I want you to cup your hands together as if you are trying to scoop up water out of a pool. Look at the size of your cupped hands. That is a close approximation of the amount of food you should be consuming at each meal. It may not seam like much, but remember, you will be eating again and keeping your energy levels and metabolism boosted every 3 hours. If you want a smaller stomach you need to put less food in it at each meal. That way, it will naturally shrink due to the fact it no longer needs to be expanded to accommodate large, heavy meals.
You will be amazed at how this technique works!
Walk the Plank!
Here is a really cool variation of the plank exercise from Yoga. Never satisfied with leaving good enough alone (what fun would that be =) I have modified the core plank into a total body fat burning exercise.

Yes it is hard, Yes we are crazy, But we have more Fun with our Personal Training!
The plank exercise works not only your abs, obliques, lower back, glutes and dozens of other “surface muscles”, but also works the Transverse Abdominis. The TA is literally a “natural corset” that pulls your belly in. Think about sucking in your stomach, now imagine if your body would do that all the time naturally!
Not only that, but if done correctly this exercise really helps with reducing back pain. Overall one of my favorite total body strengthening exercises.
