Healthy Foods for a Lean Belly

I love to cook! 🙂

But which ingredients are healthy? This question comes up often, even among my friends! So, it’s time I talked about 10 foods that are real good to keep (or get) a lean belly!

Most diets fail because hunger and appetite are too high and the allowed food portions are too small. But that doesn’t have to be so! You need to eat the right foods during a diet so that your pounds go away and stay that way. I also give some nutritional tips so that the desired figure remains permanent.

Eggs

Chicken eggs are excellent for slimming. You have a lot of vital substances. Besides, studies have shown that eggs can help to break down abdominal fat and counteract the reduction of muscle mass that is often observed in a diet. So: Just prepare a tasty omelet, then it works with the slimming. Maybe with Brussels sprouts and spinach?

Beans

Pulses, such as beans and peas, provide a significant amount of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. This natural nutrient cocktail saturates particularly well, as a scientific study has confirmed. Test persons who often integrated legumes into the diet during their slimming cure felt more satisfied with their food and were less hungry. Our tip: a delicious, homemade bean stew.

Coffee

It is free of calories and stimulates the circulation. It also accelerates breathing, blood vessels dilate, the heartbeat becomes faster, and the organs are better supplied with blood. The body works more and therefore consumes more fat. It is best to drink coffee without milk and sugar. However, remember that you will feel tired once the effects of coffee are over.

Note:

Generally, a good diet should always go in pair with exercise. Nothing helps you achieve and maintain your weight related goals like working out regularly. If you’re older and hard exercise is too difficult, you should start with something easier! Alertthingy.com has some good lean belly breakthrough reviews about a program meant for older people. This is good to start with, and it also includes more food related tips.

Grapefruit

The fruit contains many bitter substances, making grapefruit a real fat killer. The bitter substances direct fat directly to the places where it is burned in the body. In this way, they prevent fat from accumulating on the hips and abdomen. Bitter substances such as those in grapefruit can also help against sugar addiction, as you can read here.

Nuts

Although nuts have a very high energy density, they can support a diet. Nuts curb the appetite and have many unsaturated fatty acids.

Walnuts, almonds and pumpkin seeds are well suited for example. Also, you can make a lot of wonderful dishes that are accompanied by nuts. My personal favorite: put pieces of nuts into your salads! 🙂

Water

A few years ago, the Institute for Food Research demonstrated that water is a fat killer. Water activates the sympathetic nervous system, which regulates the metabolism. Moreover, water fills the stomach and the feeling of satiety sets in faster. But the trick only works with still water. Drinking a large glass of water or unsweetened tea about 30 minutes before each meal fills the stomach, reduces appetite and accelerates both metabolism and fat burning by up to 30 percent.

Chili

Chili contains the active ingredient capsaicin, which boosts the metabolism and increases body temperature. Therefore, the body consumes more energy and additional calories are burned. So why not enjoy more spicy food? We recommend chili with ginger & fish or a chili con carne.

Buttermilk

Researchers in Canada found that calcium can help lose weight. Buttermilk contains a lot of calcium, but little fat. Milk has only about 35 calories per 100 milliliters – but it takes a relatively long time to feed.

Lamb

Lamb meat contains proteins and L-carnitine. And this vitamin-like substance makes the meat a fat killer. If the body has enough L-carnitine, fat burning increases by a whopping 15 percent.

Cottage Cheese

Little fat, but much saturating protein is the slimming formula of this cream cheese specialty. 100 grams provide only 90 calories. Try omelet wrap with cottage cheese and avocado.
