3. Eat Almonds to Get Rid of Abdominal Fat

One of the superfoods that fights obesity are almonds. Almonds are high in fats- the good fats. How do almonds then reduce belly fat? It is because they are also a powerhouse of essential nutrients like magnesium, protein, Vitamin E and fiber! When you have enough good protein, you develop lean muscle mass which in turn helps you burn fat. Fibers are good not only for digestion but also to give you the feeling of fullness which stops you from overeating. The monounsaturated fats or the good fats in almonds not only help in losing weight but also in reducing Body Mass Index (BMI). This has been established by a study published in the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders. This food has many other advantages apart from a miracle for reducing obesity. It is also good for heart diseases and diabetes as it not only reduces bad cholesterol in arteries but also stabilizes blood sugar. So, without any worry, you can have almonds daily. But remember, excess of anything is bad. Have a handful of them, 10-20 almonds per day, not more than that! And yes, do not have the fried or sugar coated ones, have plain or at the most, roasted almonds!

Ways to have almonds to reduce belly fat

  1. Soak 6-8 almond in water overnight. Have them first thing in the morning. However, if you are having lemon water first thing in the morning, wait for about 30-40 minutes before having soaked almonds.
  2. Add almonds in your morning breakfast. Add them to your salad, fruit mix, porridge or even to your breakfast cereal combined with milk!
  3. Snack on almonds when feeling hungry.
  4. Use them in salads, stir fries etc.

4. Include Beans in Daily Diet to Reduce Abdominal Fat

5. Cucumber Helps Reduce Abdominal Fat

Cucumber is a great summer food but what’s interesting is that it is also an excellent fat burning food! Elizabeth Somer is a dietitian and in her book “Nutrition for Women,” she has suggested ways to lose weigh and keep it off She says cucumbers have rich content of two trace minerals- sulphur and silicon. These trace minerals may be the reason why cucumbers burn fat. Cucumbers are also high in water content and thus act as diuretics preventing the belly to bloat. Bloating may give an impression of a fat abdomen. When you add cucumbers with lemon, it becomes a superfood for burning fat as lemons excellently boost metabolism and their high acidic content helps in breaking down the fat. Have this very low-calorie food called cucumber extensively during the day. Yes, cucumbers contain about 96% water and there’s only about 45 calories in a whole cucumber.

    Stop eating wheat and junk food.

  7. Saqib Mercurious Khan, it's nigh impossible to stray away from you, eh? I reiterate, "I do not eat junk-food, at all". I only have home cooked food except when I'm away from from home, which is very few and far between. M/b my metabolism isn't at it's peak. Of-course, that I do not exercise, is a big factor. I've been goading my better half to spare me of wheat.
