Tired of your excess tummy pudge? Getting rid of belly fat can be as simple as eating the right foods. These 5 diet staples are highly effective fat trimmers, along with being nutrient-rich and easy to incorporate! I was particularly happy to see that #5 made the cut ;)
Flaxseed, olive, canola, safflower, walnut? Take your pick. Oils are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and easy to stir into a stir fry, drizzle on pasta or add into a roasted chickpea salad. Oils reduce inflammation, which can be a cause of belly bulge.
Whether eaten on their own, blended into a smoothie or used as a toast topper, avocados are nutrient powerhouses. They are potassium and fiber loaded, and also balance out your hormones to help shed weight or prevent weight gain.
Black or green, they are ideal for salads and pizzas. They are heart healthy and tiny cancer preventers, but also play a role in weight management. They can break down the fat hidden inside cells to flush away belly fat.
Munch on macadamias, sunflower seeds, almonds or try a nut butter. Nuts and seeds are fiber-fuelled to keep you feeling full and preventing overeating. Plus they contain healthy fats which have been proven to reduce waist-size.
My favourite in the list is chocolate! Dark chocolate can literally be eaten any way, and can melt your belly fat. It's antioxidants are like powerful fat-fighting agents. Try adding dark chocolate to a smoothie, or eating it by itself!
Try these foods and see the results! What are your favourite healthy snacks for staying fit?
