Foods your Abs will love

  1. Nuts 10 foods to reduce belly fat

Nuts and nut butters are high in monounsaturated fats that have been shown to reduce belly fat. Try a handful of almonds as a morning or afternoon snack.

  1. Mushrooms

There have been numerous studies which show a link between being overweight to being vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D is an important vitamin that can help aid weight loss, and mushrooms are the only natural plant source.

  1. Beans

While beans such as navy, white, kidney and lima have a reputation for making us feeling bloated and gassy, in reality, they help to burn fat, develop muscle and regulate digestion. Beans are also a filling food choice, so you’re less likely to indulge on poor choices later on. A 2011 Diabetic Medicine study found that a six month long vegetarian diet was more effective at blasting belly fat in diabetic volunteers than a calorie equivalent non-vegetarian diet.

  1. Spinach

Is there anything spinach can’t do? High in nutrients and low in calories, there’s a reason why we love to cram spinach into our diets as much as possible. Spinach is higher in fiber than most leafy greens, and is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, potassium and magnesium.

  1. Chia seeds

They may look tiny, but chia seeds are the easiest way to add additional fiber, protein and omega 3 fatty acids to practically any meal.

  1. Greek yogurt

People who get more calcium from yogurt instead of other dairy products have been shown to lose more belly fat due to the healthy bacteria present. This bacteria helps the digestive system function effectively, making you less likely to bloat.

  1. Salmon

Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which help bump up metabolism so the body burns fat faster.

  1. Raspberries

Raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are high in fiber, allowing you to feel fuller for longer. They’re also a high source of vitamin C, which boosts the immune system and clears up skin.

  1. Avocado

Full of healthy monounsaturated fats that help burn fat, avocados provide energy and stop those premature hunger pains.

  1. Lemon

Adding lemon to hot water or drinking a lemon infused tea can have a soothing effect that may help reduce bloating. If you’re prone to craving soft drinks, some lemon might be the sweet hit you need to see through the afternoon.
