Nutrition Diva 229 Foods That Burn Belly Fat

Certain food and lifestyle choices can reduce belly fat, but it doesn't appear and disappear in response to certain foods.
Although there are foods that are known to "melt fat" most of these foods fall into one of two categories.

1. Foods that Prevent Blood Sugar Spikes
  • Salmon
  • Avocado
  • Almonds
  • Olive Oil
  • Dried Beans

These foods don't burn belly fat but they are high in protein, fat, and fiber.

  • High protein, fat, fiber = slowly digested = less likely to have blood sugar spikes
  • High protein and fiber = prevent overeating


2. Foods that Increase Metabolism

  • Green Tea
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Vinegar
  • Eggs
  • Meat
  • Fish

1 cup of green tea or a teaspoon of cayenne pepper can cause you to burn an extra 10-20 calories per day

  • it takes 3,500 calories to burn off 1 pound of fat


Another way to boost metabolism is by exercising more
  • HIIT training > steady pacing
High cortisol levels=increase of belly fat
  • Cortisol is a hormone that reacts to stress and lack of sleep is seen as stress to our bodies
  • Get a good nights sleep to reduce stress and cortisol levels


6 Tips for Reducing Belly Fat
  1. Limit your intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates
  2. Choose foods that are high in protein and fiber
  3. DON'T overeat
  4. Be as active as possible
  5. Do what you can to minimize stress
