In the past, I wrote about the "mighty apple" and all of its' benefits. Well, here is another one, APPLES burn belly-fat! This is exciting news for all of us. As I have said in the past, the apple has received some "sour" notes, but you can not deny the fruitful benefits. If you follow these easy steps below with a steady exercise regime, your New Year will have a GREEN start! BTW - water, oatmeal, fish, & carrots - are foods that have been around for thousand of years....they are the fruit of the earth. Simple foods, brings non-stressful lifestyles which heightens immunities that help us battle disease.
1. Water. Drink lots of water if you are trying to lose belly fat. Your body will not be able to function properly if you are not drinking enough water. Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
2. Apples. You've always heard the saying "An apple a day will keep the doctor away". Well now you can add the saying "An apple a day will keep the belly fat away". Studies suggest that pectin contained in apples limits how much fat your cells can absorb.
3. Oatmeal Oatmeal is an excellent example of whole grains that your body needs to burn bell fat. Oatmeal not only provides whole grains, but it also provides fiber!
4 Fish Fish provides your body with lean proteins and Omega 3's. If you don't like fish then you can eat Beans. Beans are also an excellent source of protein for the body. Without the right amount of protein, your body will not be a fat burning machine!
5. Carrots Carrots contain carotene. Carotene is a form of Vitamin A that literally flushes your body of fat and waste quickly. Carotene is transformed into Vitamin A in your intestines and will help speed up your metabolism. The faster your metabolism, the faster your body burns fat.
What I do: I eat about 2-3 apples daily. I try to have a big bowl of oatmeal every day. Sometimes, for lunch with a bandanna, drizzle with honey! Fish - I love it! I get it fresh. Eat it about 1x a week. Flounder and Salmon are my favorite. Broil it with olive oil and bread crumb on top. Carrots, I eat all day long. As a snack, around three O'clock, and at night when I crave something sweet!
