Losing belly fat will mean that you have to become almost ‘one-track-minded’ because it will take a certain amount of determination to accomplish. It all starts with making the commitment to adopt a new life-style that includes changing the way you eat your meals. This is not easy since there will be temptation every where you look.

From you wake up on the morning and break your fast to not eating three hours before bed, thought must be put into everything you put in your mouth. You will need to use the ‘think and eat’ method – whatever you put in your mouth must lead to health and fitness.

The following article by Jenny Sugar highlights the types of food we should eat in-order to lose belly fat.

What You Should Be Eating If You Want to Lose Belly Fat

November 6, 2016

If you’re constantly doing crunches to get a six-pack, you may be going about things the wrong way. Along with fat-burning cardio, the best way to lose belly fat is through these three diet changes.

Proven to reduce abdominal fat, MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) should be a part of your daily diet, and you can find them in avocado, nuts and nut butters, seeds, and olive oil. Just be mindful of how much you eat since these are also high in calories. Blueberries are also proven to diminish belly fat, so make a point to throw them in your salads and smoothies. Some foods like pineapple contain an enzyme that helps ease digestion and banish bloat, making your belly look and feel flatter. High-fiber foods like pears, berries, veggies, beans, and whole grains have the same effect — plus they keep you feeling full longer, just like healthy fats. Feeling full keeps hunger at bay, so you crave less and eat less, reducing your total daily calorie intake which will reduce your overall body fat, including that extra bit around your middle.

Ditch These

Trans fat is a big no-no for your health in general, but also for your belly. It’s found in many processed foods like granola bars, crackers, cookies, some peanut butter, and breads. If the list of ingredients includes partially hydrogenated oil, put it back on the shelf. Avoid processed foods, soda, and meats that are high in saturated fat. Try to limit sugar, simple carbs like bagels, and alcohol since these won’t fill you up, so you’ll end up eating extra calories you don’t need. Also, steer clear of foods that personally cause you bloating like dairy products, sweeteners, or bread.

The Trifecta

You don’t need to give up carbs and go all crazy with a protein-only diet. Instead, CrossFit competitor Christmas Abbott told us to embrace the macronutrient trifecta of proteins, complex carbs, and healthy fats to help reduce overall body fat, which will aid in reducing stubborn belly fat. Including all three in your meals will make you feel more satisfied so you end up consuming smaller portions. Plus, you’ll feel fuller longer which helps you consume fewer total calories.
