Foods that kill belly fat: Let’s face it, ladies, we all want a flat stomach and men want washboard abs. A flat stomach is not only a sign of how healthy we are but it also shows that we take care of ourselves. The weight loss industry is currently booming and making hundreds of millions of dollars every year.
Every day we hear about breakthrough diets or miracle weight loss products that cost you thousands of dollars. I bet you’ve probably heard of the waist trainer. It looks like a corset that you wear underneath your clothes to give the illusion that you have a flat stomach.
And it’s not only women who wear it, men too squeeze themselves into these waist trainers. There’s a lot of debate as to whether or not waist trainers are bad for you and if they actually work. In my opinion, they work… temporarily. I mean, if you want to look great in a specific dress but you feel your stomach isn’t flat enough, you can squeeze yourself into a waist trainer to suck in those extra inches, but other than that, I don’t think it produces permanent results.
In fact, some experts believe wearing it for prolonged periods is harmful to your health. I’m a strong believer in getting a flat stomach the proven way…through diet and exercise. Stop wasting money on weight loss pills. If you want to invest money in weight loss products, how about joining a gym or buying yourself a treadmill? With that said,
here’s a list of ten foods that burn belly fat fast.
Do you know why you always crave that unhealthy sugary or salt-filled snack in the morning? It’s because you missed breakfast, you didn’t have enough breakfast or your sugar levels dropped. One way to avoid that morning snack attack is to eat oatmeal for breakfast.
Oatmeal is rich in fibre and it takes longer to digest, so you feel full in the morning and your cravings for those chocolate doughnuts becomes non-existent. When choosing oatmeal, don’t choose the sweetened kind. Choose the one without added sugars or flavors and sweeten it with berries or banana slices.
9. Nuts and Seeds
Flax seeds, pistachios, walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds and any other nuts or seeds you can think of all help you to keep your tummy slim by keeping it full. Not only that but they are full of healthy oils and minerals. Purdue University did a study and found that people who ate nuts felt full longer than those who ate rice cakes.
Experts recommend that you eat 24 almonds every day to satisfy your hunger pangs. This way, you won’t overload on the calories. And by the way, stay away from the salted seeds and nuts. They are high in sodium and that’s not good for your blood pressure.
