Burn off the Belly Fat with these Foods

Many women tend to carry their weight in their stomach, or perhaps you had a baby recently like I have but haven’t been able to get rid of your baby belly as fast as you’d like. Perhaps you’ve tried doing situps and crunches but still find your belly isn’t as flat as you’d like it. Did you know there are several foods out there that actually help you burn off belly fat? There are, and below I’m going to show you which ones to eat and how they work.


Eating a bowl of unsweetened oatmeal in the morning will help to fill you up and keep you feeling full longer. Plus its high fiber content will help to keep your digestive system working properly. If you prefer, add some fresh berries for sweetness.


Snacking on almonds will help satisfy hunger and the need for crunchiness. 24 almonds is a good serving size that will fill you up and keep you from munching on sweets or potato chips.

Whey Protein

Protein powder isn’t just for body builders. Whey protein contains amino acids that help build muscle and burn body fat. Add 2 teaspoons to a fruit smoothie, low-fat milk, or yogurt for a belly fat burning treat!

Fresh Berries

Nothing is prettier than a bowl of fresh berries. But did you know that they also contain a ton of fiber which is very good for your digestive system? Next time you need a sweet snack, grab some blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and black berries.


Eggs are protein packed little packages. Research shows that eating eggs every day for breakfast helps you lose more weight than cereal or bagels.

Beans and legumes

Beans, such as black, pinto and kidney, are packed full of protein and fiber. Instead of beef tacos for dinner, make bean burritos.

Tuna and Salmon

Our bodies break down proteins better than carbs, and tuna and salmon are high in omega-3 fatty acids which helps us to burn off the fat. Instead of a tuna sandwich, make a tuna salad with mustard, onion, and pickles on a bed of lettuce.
