6 Foods to help Burn more Belly Fat!

Whether you’re looking to take your abs up to 6 pack status this summer, or just looking to lose the love handles, be sure to check out these 6 foods that can actually help to reduce that stubborn belly fat!

  1. Avocados: loaded with two nutrients that are key to killing belly fat: hunger-crushing fiber (11 – 17g per avocado) and monounsaturated fats, which studies have shown to actually “spot reduce” belly fat.
  2. Peanut Butter: not just peanut butter, but mostly any seeds and nuts: pistachios, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. Why? They keep you full and satisfied for long periods of time and they are full of healthy fats and minerals.
  3. Healthy Oils: extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil actually help burn fat by supplying healthy oils your body needs to burn stubborn body fat.
  4. Certain Veggies: broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, kale and cabbage contain special phytonutrients (fight-o-nutrients), such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which help to fight against environmental estrogens that can add belly fat.
  5. Dark Chocolate: It is loaded with anti-oxidants (nearly 8 times that found in strawberries) and contains stimulants that can have a positive effect on fat burning. Make sure to choose 80% or higher cocoa content for best results.
  6. Berries: strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are loaded with fiber (which slows sugar absorption) and are packed with vitamins that can fight cravings. (cravings can come from vitamin deficiencies)
