Foods That Burn Belly Fat

Nowadays you can find all kinds of diets promising to burn your belly fat. However, anyone who tells you that you can lose your stubborn belly fat without exercise is just lying to you. It takes both proper eating and good exercise routine to burn the fat in your body.

If you want to learn more about the best exercises for your abs, you can always get a copy of "The Truth about Six Pack Abs" book where you will find some great belly fat burner exercises with clear instructions and color pictures. In this article we will focus mainly on the best foods to eat for effective fat loss and good overall health.

Eating right is not so easy with so much confusing information but it is not impossible once you learn the right principles.

How to Burn Belly Fat Tips

Forget about fad diets! Healthy belly fat loss is only achievable with a balanced diet program and no fad diet (the Atkins diet, the South Beach diet, liquid diets, to name a few) will help you get rid of your belly fat for good.

Instead of eating big meals 3 times a day, try eating smaller meals more frequently. This will help you boost your metabolism and burn fat more effectively. Remember that energy is also required when you digest the food.

It is a good idea to eat the heaviest meals in the beginning of the day. Keep the lighter meals for the end of the day.

Drink plenty of water. Your body needs water in order to function properly especially when you workout. When you don't drink enough water your liver will suffer and this is the exact organ that helps in burning fat to produce energy.

Don't try to replace water with canned fruit juices or soft drinks; their sugar content is too high.

And finally, there are two simple rules that will help you maintain your fat burning diet:

  • Keep you diet well balanced.
  • Eat foods as unprocessed as possible, in their natural state.

Lose Belly Fat by Eating Fat Burning Foods

Here are the most important aspects of nutrition along with the right foods that will help you burn your belly fat.

  1. Proteins

    Foods that are high in protein are the best for losing belly fat. First, you burn more calories while digesting them. Second, they will satisfy your hunger for a longer period of time. And third, protein is the building block for your muscles.

    Foods that are rich in protein are lean meats, chicken breast and turkey breast, egg whites, fish (salmon, trout, etc.), etc.

  2. Carbohydrates

    Make sure that your carbohydrate intake comes from higher fiber foods. They will help you feel full and eat less.

    Foods that are high in fiber are vegetables (broccoli, spinach, asparagus, salad greens, etc.), fruits (apples, pears, grapefruit, blueberries, etc.), beans and high fiber unrefined grains.

  3. Fat

    Many people turn to low-fat diets because they think that fat will make them fatter too. However, essential fatty acids are necessary for burning belly fat. Don't be afraid to eat fat but choose healthier fats from natural sources. Avoid at all costs artificial trans fats from margarines and hydrogenated oils.

    Foods that contain healthy fats are avocados, nuts, seeds, nut butters, olive oil, virgin coconut oil, fish fats, etc.

Once you learn how to choose the right foods for your diet, you will gain control over your appetite, hormone levels, blood sugar levels, and of course start burning belly fat.

In the "The Truth about Six Pack Abs" book that we already mentioned you will also find great diet advices and meal suggestions that will really help you burn belly fat faster.
