Not only is belly fat unattractive to those of us who want that smaller waist, but belly fat has been linked to some serious diseases. The idea that you can focus your fat loss regime on belly fat specifically is not true. No worries, you can burn belly fat. The thing is, the body has it’s own process for fat burning. Here is a short list of foods that promote fat loss.
1. A healthy salad:
The ratio of vitamins, minerals, and overall nutrition, to calories is very much in your favor when you eat a salad. Basically, your body actually burns more calories eating a salad (a healthy one), then the amount of calories in the salad.
The white meat in chicken is low in fat, sodium, and cholesterol. A very good source of protein.
Soy beans, and it’s byproducts actually helps straighten out your metabolism, and burn fat. Soy is also rich in folic acid and protein.
Apples are very good at tackling high cholesterol. They are rich in tannin, potassium, vitamins E and C, and magnesium.
Tea contains caffeine. Caffeine burns fat. Tea has no calories, it’s high in the B vitamins, and is full of minerals.
Nuts are a great source of protein. They are rich in “good” fats, the omega 3′s. The high levels of magnesium and calcium promotes fat burning.
In moderation, wine contains powerful antioxidants. Wine (again, in moderation), fights aging, and protects the heart.
Onions help stabilize your blood sugar. They fight cellulite. Onions are filled with so many vitamins, it surprised me. A, C, E, the B vitamins, as well as calcium, and potassium.
Wheat only contains about 319 calories for every 100 grams. It’s rich in amino acids, protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium.
Garlic is similar to onions, it’s rich in amino acids, lots of minerals, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, and D. Garlic is very effective at lowering cholesterol, and stimulating your metabolism.
Bananas are high in potassium, iron, calcium, and magnesium. Bananas contain serotonin, and vitamins A, and C.
These are only a few of a long list of foods you can include in your fat burning meal plans. There’s many more. I wrote this article to show you that you don’t have to eat tasteless rice cakes (uggh!), and drink wheat grass (how long will that last?), when trying to obtain and maintain your smaller waist. Your meal plans can be healthful, and tasteful at the same time.
