For those of you who slouch….If you can possibly stop slouching, you may be able to shred some of those unwanted pounds. Experts have found that if you stand up straight when you walk, you’ll burn more calories, flatten your belly and look thinner.
You can teach yourself to do this naturally with one simple trick: Before going out for a fitness walk, place a belt around the thinnest part of your waist (not through any belt loops). Make it snug, but not too tight. As you move, pull your abs up and your shoulders back so that the belt begins to feel almost loose. Wear the belt every time you go walking and in about three weeks (the time it generally takes for something to become a habit) you’ll automatically start tightening your abs. Soon you’ll find yourself walking taller and looking leaner throughout your entire day.
