Eat 4 Fat-Burning Foods to Shrink Your Belly

There is a saying: “abs are made in the kitchen and not in the gym.”

This is so TRUE!  Wouldn’t you agree?

As much as exercise helps in the battle of the bulge, fat loss really happens in the kitchen.

If you eat a crappy diet, then chances are you’re not going to lose nearly as much fat as you could.

What are some good foods to eat?


Top Four Flat-Belly Foods

There are certain foods you should be eating if you want to achieve greater fat loss this year.

But, most people don’t eat them.  Why?  For starters, some of the foods on the list below have been shot by the media as foods that lead to FAT GAIN.

But, the truth is: The four foods listed below are ACTUALLY BENEFICIAL to fat loss and can really help you get the lean, toned body you’re after.

Lean, Grass-fed, Wild-Caught Proteins

Protein – the essential food that helps you build lean muscle mass – is extremely important to a healthy diet.

Not only does it stimulate muscle growth, it also plays a role in satisfying your appetite, boosting your calorie burn (thermic effect of food), and may even slow the digestion of carbohydrates.

Good examples: grass-fed beef (contains CLA – a potent fat burner), wild-caught salmon (contains omega-3 fatty acids which may help you burn fat and lowers inflammation), and cage-free eggs and chicken.

High-fiber, Low-Calorie Fruits and Veggies

Fruits and veggies are important to your overall fat loss results.   Not only are they low in calories, but they contain healthy doses of fiber – which helps slow the rate of digestion and satisfies appetites.

They also have a high water content, which makes them hydrating foods as well!  No wonder why you are recommended to get at least two to four servings (or more!!) per day.

Plus fruits, in particular, contain high levels of antioxidants, which are needed to lower inflammation and promote better health.

Healthy Carbs

Carbs - which the media LOVES to destroy – are a much-needed food if you want to boost your fat loss.

Not only do complex carbs contain fiber, they also contain vitamins and minerals that are needed to improve your overall health.

Now, carbs that are AWFUL for you: processed foods, instant oatmeal, rice cakes, and many more.

Look for carb-rich foods that yield a lower carbohydrate load and ones that promote better health.

Examples: potato (sweet, and on occasion, white), steel-cut oats, sprouted-grain breads, and wild rice.

Essential Fats

It may be hard to believe that fats can actually help you burn fat – but it's true!

Essential fats – fats not produced by your body – are important for almost all biological functions.

Not only do they improve many different body systems (think heart), but they may lower inflammation and may help your body use more fat for energy.

Good examples: avocado, coconuts (medium-chain triglycerides), almonds, krill oil, and olive oil.

The List of ALL Lists

If your goal for this year is to lose more weight, then this list is for you!

Packed full of the nutrients you need for better overall fat loss, these THREE foods are ideal additions to anyone’s diet.

So grab a pen, write them down, and head immediately to the store.  Make this the year you shed the unwanted belly fat, boost your metabolism, and LOOK amazing all year long!

Ever wonder how companies make dietary supplements?  Well, check out this video from Prograde Nutrition and you will see how they only use the best products and processes to make health and fitness supplements that work.

I don't know of any supplement company - other than Prograde Nutrition - that would have the guts to do this.  And, I'm sure their competitors aren't too happy about it!

That's why I'm a Prograde Nutrition Partner.
