Best foods for a flat belly

We’ve all struggled to maintain a flat belly at some point and some are actually still struggling to get rid of the unnecessary fat that seems to be a nuisance. But what exactly is needed to prevent one or to help one deal with this fat? That’s a question that casually ponders and lives with us but it is mostly left unanswered.

Abdominal fat is said to be harmful to your health. It poses a high risk of getting type 2 diabetes and heart diseases. Certain exercises have been linked to helping people lose belly fat but what we should note is that these exercises are only effective if they are accompanied by a healthy diet plan.

Here are some of the foods that can help with the lose of the abdominal belly fat:

  1. Eat more protein

If weight loss is your goal then taking more proteins than carbohydrates will quicken your weight loss journey. This is because proteins tend to limit cravings as they make you feel fuller than you actually are. They boost the body metabolism and help one eat 441 fewer calories in a day.

Try eating eggs, fish, legumes, nuts, meat and dairy products. These are the best protein products to help with weight loss. Proteins also prevent the regaining of weight which is an added advantage.

2. High intake of soluble fibre

Soluble fibres absorb water and as a result, they form a gel that will make you feel fuller therefore making it easy for one to eat less. It will also reduce the number of calories the body absorbs from the food. Examples of these fibres are blackberries, avocadoes, legumes and flax seeds.

3. Eat fatty fish/white meat

Fatty fish is high in omega-3 fats which is healthy and helps boost immunity. It significantly reduces liver and abdominal fat. Ensure that you have had 2-3 servings of fatty fish per week.

4. Drink green tea

It is an extremely healthy beverage and contains the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate which boosts body metabolism. The effect is strengthened if combined with exercises.

Successfully adding these foods to your diet plan and having a routine that involves exercising will definitely help you lose unwanted pounds.
