Foods That Burn Belly Fat

There are actually foods that help you burn belly fat

Yes, you read that right – on your quest towards leanness you can actually eat foods that burn belly fat. These foods specifically target the belly area in women and men. When you include them in your diet, it will help burn belly fat away faster than with traditional diet foods.

Monounsaturated fatty acids or MUFAs are one of the important fat burning foods to learn about. MUFAs are the healthy fats that target the fat around your belly area. It is relatively simple to add these to the foods to your daily diet.

We often get caught up in the amount of saturated fat or monounsaturated fat found in foods. The reality is that it’s not the fat itself that is the problem; the problem lies in the processing of fats. Most people are concerned with eliminating all fat from their weight loss diet but the good ones are actually beneficial to your health.


MUFAs make a great snack and burn belly fat fast.

There are several MUFAs available to cook with or add to your meals to shrink belly fat. You can use any of the following oils in your meals to accelerate your belly fat loss: soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, flaxseed oil, olive oil, peanut oil, or sesame oil.

Seeds and nuts also contain MUFAs and will help accelerate your fat loss. These make great snacks – just watch out for nuts that are heavily salted or have a sugar coating added. Plain and natural are your best choice to burn belly fat.

Avocados and olives are a great way to add MUFAs to your diet. Including chocolate in your diet plan may sound crazy but dark chocolate chips or shavings and semisweet chocolate chips can make a delicious, belly fat burning treat.

We have made a list of some super foods to help shrink your spare tire and reduce that belly fat fast:

#1 – A great morning snack that will help you lower your blood sugar levels is oatmeal. Just watch out for the sugary flavored ones. Stick with the natural and you can add berries later.

#2 - Protein powder is another great way to get rid of belly fat. Protein powder contains amino acids that help burn fat and build muscle.

#3 - Eggs provide you with vitamin B12 which your body needs to metabolize fat. Studies have shown that people who ate eggs for breakfast every day lost more weight than those who ate bagels.

#4 - Beans are another low calorie food packed with protein and fibre which will help you tone up and lose weight.

#5 – Lean meats and fish use more calories for digestion than carbs or fat.

#6 – Fish are full of omega 3’s which help prevent the release of stress chemicals that promote fat abs.

#7 – Green vegetables are high in vitamins and minerals, are loaded with fibre and have fewer calories than many other foods. Salads go great with any meal
