Five Tasty Belly Buster Foods
Battling a belly? Some foods can help, especially if you’re in the “danger zone” – a waist measurement of 40+ inches for men or 35+ inches for women.
Yogurt. A 12-week study at the University of Tennessee showed that obese people who added yogurt to their weight reduction plan lost 81 percent more belly fat than those who did not.
Eat your MUFAs. According to a 2007 study published by Spanish researchers, monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) such as those found in olive oil, avocados, and nuts are great for your overall health and may also help you reduce belly fat.
Whole grain cereals, bread and pasta, having at least 51 percent of ingredients from whole grain, increase abdominal weight loss, according to a 12-week Penn State University study.
Tea may reduce the desire for carbohydrates and cause a slight increase in body temperature.
Salmon contains slow-digesting protein, calcium that contributes to the reduction of weight and omega-3 fatty acids that lower hunger-hormone levels and help control stress.
