While foods such as vegetables and fish serve as great sources for weight control, there are plenty of other foods to provide our body the power it needs to make our belly go flat. So before you reach for the diet pills or overdose on broccoli, try filling up on these tasty bites this fall to fire up your metabolism and shrink belly fat naturally.
1. Super Dark Chocolate– Several studies have shown that cacao has a huge impact on overall fitness and health levels including lower blood pressure and increased energy levels. There is a difference between dark chocolate and super dark chocolate. To be classified as super, the chocolate must have at least 70% cacao or more. Now you know one of the secrets to a healthier chocolate chip cookie that still tastes amazing!
2. Avocados– Here’s why I’m addicted to avocados. They are an incredibly versatile addition to any diet. Avocados boast a number of health benefits which is why I love to put them on everything. Containing high levels of monounsaturated fat, avocados are rich in a fuel that is easily burned by the body. They are also quite filling which helps in reducing hunger and decreasing unnecessary calorie consumption.
3. Peanut Butter– Real or “Natural” Peanut Butter has monounsaturated fats like avocados and it tends to help flatten your stomach a lot but it must be “Natural” or it won’t work.
4. Coconut Milk and Oils– Coconut has seen a recent surge in popularity for good reason. It’s super rich in vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and high in fiber causing you to feel fuller which reduces your overall calorie consumption. It’s tasty and versatile so you’ll reap tremendous benefits from it.
