3 Tips to Melt Your Muffin Top in Just Weeks
The dreaded muffin top. It doesn't have to be the bane of your existence. Here are some simple tricks to try that will work just as well as any diet, maybe even better...
1. Be a Dairy Queen
A study done in The International Journal of Obesity, found that dieters who had three servings of fat free yogurt a day for 12 weeks, lost more weight around the waist than those in the control group. Yogurt contains probiotics that may help reduce bloat if eaten regularly. If yogurt isn't your thing, you can find probiotics in kefir (fermented milk) or in a supplement.
2. Go Whole
Trade refined grains for whole grains. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study that found that people who ate three or more servings of whole grains per day over the previous year had lower abdominal fat levels than those how had eaten less. Quinoa, popcorn and gluten free oats are all really great options.
3. Chew This Fat
Research shows that some types of fat may actually help you trim your midsection. Linoleic acid and monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) in particular. Grass fed beef and sunflower seeds are a great source from linoleic acid and MUFAs can be found in avocado, olives and nuts.
I don't see any reason to delay in giving this a shot. Are you with me?
