10 Tummy Trimming Super Foods

             Here are 10 super-foods that you can eat, to slim down your waist line

In my recent video on YouTube, I explain how you can lose weight around the tummy by eating the right amount of the right food. In this post, I will be explaining more about the nutritional benefits of each food. Enjoy, and happy eating!
                                  
1. Green Tea
 It is loaded with antioxidants and various substances that are beneficial for health.

Many studies have shown that green tea can increase fat burning and help you lose weight.

The bioactive substances in the tea leaves dissolve in the water and make it into the final drink.

When you drink a cup of quality tea, you’re actually getting a large amount of beneficial substances with potent biological effects (1).

The best known of these is caffeine. A cup of green tea contains much less caffeine (24-40 mg) than a cup of coffee (100-200 mg), but still enough to have a mild effect.

Caffeine is a well known stimulant that has been shown to aid fat burning and improve exercise performance in numerous studies (2, 3).

But where green tea really shines is in its massive range of antioxidants… being loaded with potent antioxidants called catechins (4).

The most important of these is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a substance that can boost metabolism. 
2.  Almonds

These delicious and versatile nuts contain filling protein and fiber, not to mention vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. They're also a good source of magnesium, a mineral your body must have in order to produce energy, build and maintain muscle tissue, and regulate blood sugar. "A stable blood-sugar level helps prevent cravings that can lead to overeating and weight gain,"
Good amount for 1 day: about 23 almonds

3.  Eggs

You won't find a more perfect protein source. Eggs are highly respected by dietitians because of their balance of essential amino acids (protein building blocks used by your body to manufacture everything from muscle fibers to brain chemicals). 
One egg a day, unless you have high blood cholesterol, in which case you should check with your doctor first.

4.  Apples


A large apple has 5 grams of fiber, but it's also nearly 85 percent water, which helps you feel full.

An apple (or two) a day

5.  Yogurt



The probiotic bacteria in most yogurts help keep your digestive system healthy, which translates into a lower incidence of gas, bloating, and constipation, which can keep your tummy looking flat.

One to three cups a day of low-fat or fat-free yogurt. Choose unsweetened yogurt that contains live active cultures. Add a handful of freshhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/lb_icon1.png chopped fruit for flavor and extra fiber.   
6.  Salmon


Seafood, especially fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and mackerel, is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These uber-healthy fats may help promote fat burning by making your metabolism more efficient. seafood may help slow digestion and prevent cravings. Seafood is an excellent source of ab-friendly protein. You can also get omega 3 from ground flaxseeds.
Two four-ounce servings per week.

7.   Avocados


Another tasty and filling option rich in good fats. 
Though they are relatively high in fat, avocados will not actually make you fat, at least not when included as part of an otherwise healthy diet. As it turns out, the monounsaturated fat content in avocados actually helps to reduce the systemic inflammation that can lead to high cholesterol, as well as prevent the blood sugar spikes that communicate to your body to store excess calories as fat, particularly around your midsection. Both of these actions can help balance your hormones and prevent excess cortisol production, which can lead to obesity.
Avocados are also rich in potassium, which aids in the conversion of food and nutrients into energy and muscle tissue. The B vitamins, amino acids, fiber, and sheer density of avocados -- anyone who eats avocados will tell you just how filling they are -- all play a role in maintaining a healthy weight as well. Substituting an avocado as a snack in place of, say, chips or crackers will go a long way in helping you to achieve your weightloss goals naturally.


8.  Quinoa


This whole grain contains 5 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein per half cup. Cook it as you would any other grain (although some brands require rinsing).
At least one half-cup serving 

9. Asparagus


It’s a natural fluid flusher and it also offers vitamins A and C that accelerate the fat burning process. Add asparagus to your diet to reduce abdominal fat. Asparagus acts as a diuretic to relieve water retention, which causes bloating and puffiness in the stomach. It's ability to flush waste products such as undigested foods from the body stems from its low sodium content coupled with an amino acid called asparagine. Asparagus is also a source of inulin, a dietary fiber that maintains a healthy digestive system and decreases constipation or stomach upsets. Prepare asparagus at home by steaming, sauteing or grilling them as part of a low-calorie meal.

10.   Dark Chocolate



Thanks to monounsaturated fats, eating dark chocolate can actually help get rid of that bothersome belly. Eating a piece of dark chocolate may also help fend off a major sweet binge, but don’t consume more than a ¼ cup per day.


 That's all for today folks, until next time, take care!
