How Can I Lose My Belly Fat??

“How can I lose my belly fat?”

This is the Nos 1 question that I always get asked.

 

Most of us want to lose fat from the mid-section.

 

So How do you do it?

 

Firstly, you have to eat and drink responsibly and have a god exercise routine

 

Ok. So let’s assume your exercising well and deal with your nutrition:

 

To start with you need to do two things:

 

1) Cut down on low-nutritious foods. That generally means all food you snack on. Chocolate, crisps, sweets….(I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture.)  

2) If you drink, cut down on your alcohol consumption as that goes straight to your belly.

 

Once you’ve done these things (which may not be that easy at first) start balancing out your meals. For every meal, make sure you have a Protein, Fat and a Carbohydrate source. We need a balance of all three macro-nutrients for a healthy diet, whether we want to lose weight or not.  For decades, grains and other high carbohydrate foods formed the base of the food pyramid and the foundation for a “healthy diet”. 

 

All the while, fats were demonized.  

Unfortunately, these recommendations couldn’t be further from the ideal path to a flat belly.  A diet high in wheat and other grain products inevitably leads to high blood sugar and poor sensitivity to the hormone insulin.  In turn, poor insulin sensitivity has been shown to be a major cause of belly fat. 

 

Even worse, the more belly fat you gain, the worse your insulin sensitivity becomes… and so the vicious cycle repeats, often leading to out-of-control belly fat storage over time.

Fats, on the other hand, are instrumental in the regulation of your overall hormonal balance, including many fat-burning hormones.  When you understand how to choose the right fats, replacing high-carb items in your diet such as bread, bagels, muffins, baked goods, and pasta with more of these fat-burning, healthful "fatty foods", you’ll be well on your way to a flatter belly.

Here are 7 of our top "fatty foods" for a flat belly:

 

  1. Whole Eggs,

  2. Nuts (such as almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cashews),

  3. Seeds (such as sunflower seeds and flaxseeds),

  4. Avocado,

  5. Olive Oil,

  6. Fatty Fish (for example, mackerel, tuna, salmon, and trout)

  7. Coconut Oil.

 

All of these "fattening" foods help to improve your overall fat-burning hormone balance, satiety and feelings of fullness after a meal, and also possess an array of other unique fat-burning and health benefits. 

For example, egg yolks are loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants (making the myth about only eating egg whites for a flat belly completely false); avocados and olive oil are rich in heart-healthy, health-boosting fatty acids; many species of fish are a great source of inflammation-reducing omega-3s; and coconut oil is a prime source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), well known for their appetite regulation, energy, and immune benefits.

 

Make sure your eating enough good fats it could really change your health!
