7 Flat Belly Hacks You Need to Try

If you are tired of feeling bloated and puffy, you are in luck. Chris Powell, author of Extreme Transformation, can help you look and feel your best in just a few simple steps.

Unlike some quick fixes that are only temporary, these hacks will help your tummy stay flat and continue to get flatter over time.

Powell recommends eating “muscle-up oats” which are a great source of fiber and will keep you fuller longer so you can have a flatter stomach by day’s end.

The yolk also has choline, which slows down the production of leptin, a hormone that causes hunger and snacking.
