Being overweight or obese can be very harmful to your health.
A few extra kilos in your belly can be even more dangerous.
Compared with fat in other body parts, belly fat contains special proteins that may increase cancer risk. In addition, bigger waist circumference is linked to higher risk of heart failure.
So, if you want to have a healthy body weight, the priority should be losing belly fat.
No doubt it is very hard work, but here are 7 magic foods that can help you achieve the goal.
- High fiber food
Soluble fiber absorbs water and forms a gel that helps slow down food as it passes through your digestive system.
It can make you feel full easily and reduce the calories your body absorbs from food. Soluble fiber is high in avocados, beans, and berries, and you can easily add them in your daily diet.
- Probiotic food or supplements
Probiotics are bacteria found in some foods and supplements. They can help improve gut health and enhance immune functions.
Probiotic supplements typically contain several types of bacteria, which can play a role in body weight control. The bacteria of the Lactobacillus family are found to especially reduce belly fat.
- Fatty fish or fish oil
Fatty fish are full of high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acid that can protect you from chronic diseases.
In addition, omega-3 can help reduce visceral fat. Fish oil supplements can decrease fat in the liver and belly, so they are good for people with fatty liver disease.
- Apple cider vinegar
Fruit vinegar is a nutritional powerhouse of health and beauty benefits, and the most popular fruit vinegar is apple cider vinegar.
It has been proved that apple cider vinegar can lower blood sugar levels, reduce diabetes symptoms, and help lose fat around the belly. People who add 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar can achieve modest weight loss.
- Canola oil
Scientists recently found that including canola oil in a healthy diet may help reduce belly fat in as little as 4 weeks.
Canola oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been shown to have beneficial effects on body composition, especially in people with obesity.
- High protein food
High protein food can be a good fat burner. This means when you digest them, you burn more calories. Food rich in protein also releases a hormone that can suppress appetite and increase fullness.
You can easily include food like nuts, soy, dairy, whey protein and lean meat in your meals to get plenty of protein.
- Green tea
Exercisers who drink green tea every day are more likely to lose belly fat compared with exercisers who don’t drink green tea.
This is because green tea’s caffeine and the antioxidant catechin can boost metabolism. Every day 2 to 3 cups of green tea can help you have a flat belly.
