Eat These 8 Foods to Lose Belly Fat

And if eating could help you shed a few pounds, especially in the stomach region? Add these 8 foods to your diet to help you lose belly fat.


We all know it by now: abs are made in the kitchen. But knowing and actually applying a theory are two very different things. Need some help to get started? Here are 8 foods to consume in order to change your lifestyle and shed some belly fat.

1. Water and tea

Alright, so that’s not technically food. But it is indispensable, so these two items still get to be first place on the list. Staying hydrated is key to any weight loss and to maintain good health. Drink water and herbal teas as much as you want, as long as it is caffeine-free and unsweetened.

2. Fruits

In order to lose fat, you must cut all sugars. Thankfully, there is one exception to the rule: fruits. Deliciously sweet, fruit contains natural sugars which are good for you as opposed to refined ones. It also has fiber which makes you feel full sooner.

3. Vegetables

Forget about Skittles and eat the rainbow with vegetables.Eat them raw, steamed, roasted… It does not matter as long as you eat them. Low in calories, high in fiber and nutrient dense, there is nothing not to love. They even taste great, just give them a chance.

4. Meat

Or rather protein. Whether you decide to go vegetarian and opt for beans, seitan, tempeh and legumes or stick with lean meat, makes sure that your diet includes enough good quality protein without overdoing it.

7. Chia seeds

I've never been a lot into baked oatmeal, but this year I'm starting to change my mind 😊 It's warm, filling and tastes like a cake – can it get better than this? I made this almond apple pie baked oatmeal this morning, divided it into 2 dishes to have the second one for tomorrow, but already had it for dessert and it was perfect 👌🍰 Do you make baked oatmeal in the winter? . Almond apple pie baked oatmeal 60g rolled oats 1 small/medium apple, grated 2 tbsp almond flour 2 tbsp raisins 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp cinnamon pinch of salt 1/2 tsp vanilla 3/4 cup almond milk Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Transfer to one bigger or two smaller oven proof dishes, bake in 180C for 30-35 minutes. Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt, Sprinkled with cinnamon. Enjoy! . . . . . . #oatmeal #breakfast #porridge #oats #applepie #bakedoatmeal #recipes #healthybreakfast #healthydessert #sweettooth #whatveganseat #vegansofig #wholefoods #cleaneating #healthyfood #healthychoices #healthylifestyle #healthyfoodshare #veganfoodshare #eathealthy #foodblogger #veganblogger #veganrecipes #foodphotography #cleaneats #breakfastideas #veganfood #plantbased #vegan #breakfastrecipes

Put chia seeds in your baked goods, on your smoothies, yogourt, oatmeal, etc. They are a perfect addition to your diet. Filled with nutrients, they are also a source of protein, healthy fats and viscous fiber. But stick to about 3 tablespoons a day.

8. Healthy fats

Yes, fats. But not any kind. The good kind. Chose the healthy options while still trying to reduce your fat intake. Opt for lean meats and eat avocados and nuts as a source of fat. Also, try to cook with high-quality olive and coconut oil.
