Nollywood actress, Omoni Oboli, is a mother of three boys, but she has succeeded in getting her tummy back to an envious shape.
On Instagram lately, she has been responding short messages to those asking her to share secrets to those flat abs, promising to share details someday.
She has finally done so.
On her Instagram page this afternoon, she shared eight steps to follow, saying they are part of what she has done over the years. She however stressed that discipline is the key to unlocking those steps.
She said for four days, she took only smoothies, no solid food, and lost some weight and her stomach git a lot flatter as a result. For now, she says she takes one meal a day and smoothies, fruits, nuts and tea for the rest of the day.
I did a smoothie only diet for 4 days and lost some weight and my stomach got a lot flatter in the process. Following that, for now, I have just one meal a day around lunch time. I have my tea and smoothie for breakfast, I can either have smoothie again for dinner or just have some carrots or apples with a handful of nuts– Omoni Oboli
The steps below are some of the things she said she has done over the years “to get back my pre child bearing abs…The first thing is discipline!”
1. Warm water in the morning
First thing I drink when I wake up in the morning is a glass of warm water with lemon. (I always squeeze the juice of my lemon in my tea or water before throwing it in. Who else does that? ?)
2. Green tea
My green tea: I have my green tea every morning. I squeeze in some lemon or lime, add 2 spoonfuls of Apple cider vinegar (with the mother in it) and some ginger juice. You can add some honey (honey is actually beneficial to the body)
3. Less carbohydrates!
I don’t eat as much carbs as a lot if you think I do. The people around me will testify to that. There are times that I am bad and I go on a carbs spree but I caution myself early and make restitutions.
4. No carbohydrates at night!
I try never to eat carbs at night. Carbs make you bloat in the morning so stay away from them at night. Long and continuous consumption of carbs at night will lead to an extended stomach.
5. Vegetable swallows
I use vegetables and some nut flours to make swallow. (I like my soups and I don’t like just licking them) So I make almond swallow, cauliflower, cabbage, egg plant or even carrot swallow. I will post a video on how to make one of them.
6. Drink lots of water and fresh juices
I drink lots of water and fresh juices. Carrot juice is particularly good for the skin. I mix it with ginger and celery (most times).
7. Other types of tea
I drink other types of tea during the day apart from green tea. Some of my favorites are mint, rooibos tea and camomile at night.
Exercise is very important not just for weight loss but for your health and general well being so don’t forget to exercise but 80% of weight loss or staying trim is done in your kitchen!
