In this article we will be looking at the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat. Everyone has some sort of belly fat guys so don’t feel like you’re the only one! Even the bikini clad babes you see waltz past you on a summer’s day have some sort of belly fat – it’s completely normal!
The problem arises when we develop to much belly fat as it effects our health in different ways to other body fat. Now good food is by all means not the only way to shift that belly flab but it is great in getting the ball rolling ( so to speak! ). Here are a handful of foods that can really help you not just get rid of a little unwanted fat, but make your body healthier, too!
Apple Cider Vinegar
If I had a buck for every time I mentioned this wonder liquid online in articles I would be a rich guy by now – believe me! Apple cider vinegar is certainly one of the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat.
Most of us only know about apple cider vinegar because we quickly walk past it in the grocery store. It has a sort of ‘what the hell is that used for?’ type of stigmata to it!
Well apple cider vinegar is packed rigid with vitamins, minerals and acetic acid. Now this acetic acid is a very important element when it comes to natural dieting. It controls your appetite and helps produce protein within the body. This is great when it comes to handling the fat storage system inside our bodies!
Like most products these days there are two versions of apple cider vinegar – the filtered and the more natural unfiltered version. The filtered version is nowhere near as effective as the unfiltered ‘mother’ version so beware of what you purchase!
When looking into online research on the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat I rarely come across fermented foods. Personally I have no idea why this is as they are extremely important and effective in nailing down that belly fat!
Have you seen any of those commercials on TV that bang on about those probiotics? Well they are popular for a very good reason! Probiotics give our intestines large quantities of good bacteria. This in turn makes our belly very healthy so it can get rid of all the rubbish inside our gut!
Black Beans ( Legumes )
When looking into the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat it’s important not to overlook the more simple options. Black beans could be considered one of the more simpler options but they really do work in diet circles!
Black beans or legumes are known to be really high in protein and fiber – both are extremely good appetite suppressors. The dark color of the beans is down to flavonoids which are thought to naturally take on the storage of belly fats in the body!
Now I know a lot of people fall flat with dieting because of the dessert process! We cannot help it – it’s like it’s bred into us! We eat a great meal and the first thing we think about is topping it off with a nice slice of creamed pie ( or something equally as belly boosting! ).
Now I think pears are one of the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat because they give you that option of a healthy dessert. They are so drastically low in calories it is almost criminal!
There are also a selection of antioxidants in pears that again attempt to battle the belly fat storage process – great for news for us!
And how many weight loss articles do you think you will come across that will back the eating of potatoes? Not many right? Well it’s a little known fact that potatoes can be one of the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat.
The trick is to eat them cold – in a perfect world let them stand in the refrigerator overnight. If you chill potatoes overnight, they form something called resistant starch crystals. Now this resistant starch actually switches on a group of hormones that sort of stop hunger in it’s tracks ( impressive eh? ).
My mother always insisted that sunflower seeds were one of the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat. This stuck with me for years and the older I got the more I realized how right she was!
Sunflower seeds contain high levels of monounsaturated fats ( good fats in some cases ). If you use the unsalted variety of sunflower seeds then this monounsaturated fat can help decrease the waist line.
So these are our recommended options for the best foods to eat while trying lose stomach fat. If you have any additions to the information we have supplied above we would love to hear them. Simply leave any information in the comment section below and we will get back to you asap
