Keeping a belly down ain’t as hard as you may think. It all is about the food of choice.
Let’s start with legumes which are full of protein and fiber and they do a good job of crushing appetite. The black beans are the highest in flavonoids because of their dark color.
Flavonoids may thwart the storage of excess tummy fat.
Pears are so low in calories and high in fiber, you could eat one before every meal and still lose weight. Pears are loaded with catechins and flavonols — two antioxidants that appeared to hinder the storage of belly.
Then we have popcorn, my favorite snack, which is a whole grain.
Vinegar potato salad, the key to this is that it is chilled. Seems when you chill potatoes they form resistance starch crystals, resistant starch helps the body incinerate more fat for fuel while making less fat.
Sunflower seeds, another belly blaster, throw them in your cereal, yogurt, or just pop them straight into your mouth.
White tea another fat breaker.Apple cider vinegar has acetic acid, which turbocharges the body’s ability to burn fat and simultaneously hinders fat storage. Sunflower oil, a couple of tablespoons a day encourages belly fat to take a hike.
Peanuts, healthy fats in peanuts are burned more readily than the less-healthy fats found in cookies, chips, and creamy desserts. So make them your snack of choice.
Along with the above comes reducing stress. Chronic stress boosts your blood levels of cortisol — the “fight or flight” hormone. And cortisol encourages belly fat in two ways, it tells the body to store more fat in the belly and triggers cravings for sugar and high fat comfort foods. And the final thing to combat that belly fat, which in my mind is essential to an over all healthy body. Yes, that dreaded word, exercise. But did you know that just standing up more often helped melt 1½ inches from people’s waists. See it doesn’t take much.
