Foods that Battle the Tummy Bulge

What are the best foods to eat to burn fat? There are a number that work. Obviously everyone knows that exercising is important, but diet is just as important. Here are some rules you should follow:

#1) Eat frequently.

This might be the most important point of all. Many find that eating 4-6 times a day speeds up the metabolism, which is critical for dropping fat. Aim for smaller meals throughout the day rather than two or three large meals.

#2) Eat carbs, protein and fat at each meal.

This is very important, because your body needs all three nutrients to survive. Without any of them you simply won’t lose the fat you want.

But not all nutrients are equal.

The protein, carbs and fat you get from processed foods is far inferior to the nutrients you get from whole foods. In general, try and get the vast majority of your nutrition from whole foods.

So what are the best whole foods? Here are four of the top:

#1) Oatmeal

This makes for an excellent breakfast because it’s filling and has plenty of healthy carbs. But avoid anything that’s been processed or sweetened. If you want more flavor, consider adding strawberries or blueberries on top.

#2) Nuts

These are incredibly healthy sources of fat. Most people are dead set against this nutrient, but you need a certain amount to survive. Also they have tons of protein.

But avoid nuts that have salt added to them. Plain raw nuts are best. Try and soak them at least an hour before eating for best digestion.

#3) Fruits and vegetables

Fruit is one of the best fat burners there is. Eating a wide variety of fruit and vegetables is recommended for optimal fat loss.

#4) Beans

Beans have low amounts of calories, plenty of protein and are very filling. In other words, they are ideal for fat loss. But again, make sure they haven’t been processed.

In conclusion: combining natural whole foods with a sound exercise routine is how to burn fat extremely fast. Get started today, stay focused, and you should see serious results in 1-3 months.
