After your requests, I wrote an article earlier this week giving you a list of 11 foods to avoid if you want to get a flat stomach. However, I’m sure you are still wondering what foods you should eat in order to burn stomach fat and reach your flat stomach goals.
In honor of the 11th year in the new century I’ve compiled a list of 11 foods that should be a part of every flat stomach diet. Including these 11 foods in your diets will help you burn stomach fat and making sure you get the flat stomach you have always wanted.
#1 — Eggs
Eggs are a great source of protein. Starting your day with a protein (as opposed to just a bagel) will help you feel fuller longer. When you feel fuller longer you won’t be tempted to eat a non-healthy treat.
The benefits of green tea are endless. Green tea is not only FULL of antioxidants that can help prevent you from getting sick, but research has shown that green tea can also speed up your metabolism — helping you burn more fat,
#3 — Oatmeal
If you are really hungry and in need of a good meal — make yourself a bowl of oatmeal. Oatmeal is FULL of fiber which will help you feel full and stay feeling full for a long period of time. Since they digest slowly the oats will help keep you energized for a longer period of time, as opposed to those super fast digesting foods.
#4 — Wild Salmon
#5 — Water
Increase your daily intake of water. Your body needs at least 8 cups of water each day in order to prevent dehydration and flush out all the toxins. Drinking water will also help you feel full – helping you avoid those cravings for something sweet.
#6 — Blueberries
Even though they are little blueberries are EXTREMELY healthy and will help you get a flat stomach. Each little berry is full of antioxidants and fiber. A diet high in fiber can help prevent fat to be absorb into your cells as the fat gets pulled out with the fiber through your digestive tract. Less fat =flat stomach!
#7 — Lean Meats
Your body needs protein in order to make your workouts effective. Eating meats such as chicken or turkey that don’t have a lot of fat will give your body the protein it needs to build more muscle and burn more fat.
#8 — Green Veggies
Loading up your plate with lots of green veggies will help give you results on the scale. Vegetables — especially green ones — are full of fiber. The fiber in these veggies will help you feel fuller longer as well as helping your metabolism burn. Instead of grabbing a bag of candy grab a bag of broccoli.
#9 — Olive Oil
Olive oil is a healthy fat that will help you feel fuller for longer. Olive oil is a great dressing for your salad that will not only add some flavor but help decrease inflammation.
Recent research has found that adding cinnamon to your oatmeal or toast can help decrease your cravings for something sweet or help you get rid of that afternoon energy slide. Besides that cinnamon has also been found to lower cholesterol and blood sugar.
#11 — Almonds
Almonds are a great source of healthy fat. Find an almond butter to spread on your toast and you’ll find that your cravings for other sweet foods will decrease, as almond butter helps to decrease your rise in blood sugar, helping you lose more stomach fat.
