Five Foods That Reduce Belly Fat

You know the old phrase, “you are what you eat” and there is more truth in that than you may have thought.

If you eat fatty, processed foods, then you will develop fat in your body and you will also have toxins built up in your system. If you eat healthy foods, they can actually help you burn away the fat.

Belly fat is especially hard to deal with. It is usually the last fat lost, and it is incredibly unhealthy for you. Studies show that belly fat in excess can actually severely raise the risk of heart disease, heart attack, diabetes, and stroke.

But, you can tackle that belly fat. To start with, you need to exercise regularly. Additionally, you need to eat foods that will help you start burning this belly fat too. Ready to find out five of these fantastic foods to add to your diet?

Oatmeal or Oats

Oats are rich in fiber and they stay in your stomach for a long time.  If you have a bowl of oatmeal or oat-based cereal for breakfast, this will keep you from reaching for the sugary snacks mid-morning. Oats have also proven to help lower cholesterol, so this is an added benefit in addition to burning belly fat. Just make sure you are careful with what you add into your oatmeal – sugar and syrups are not going to help you burn belly fat.

Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil can be used for cooking many different things and it is infinitely healthier than other oils you could cook with. Additionally, the fats in olive oil are monounsaturated, meaning they are healthy. They can keep you from being hungry, stave off cravings, and lower your cholesterol.


When you eat just a cup of raspberries, you get about six grams of fiber. Fiber will help you keep from feeling hungry too soon so that you can burn fat more easily. Additionally, berries are filled with antioxidants too. Just make sure you don’t add in sugar when you eat your berries or eat berries in the form of sugar-laden fruit juices and jellies.


For many years, we were told that eggs were bad, but they are actually quite good for you. Studies have shown that people who ate eggs every day actually lost more weight than people who didn’t. That’s because eggs contain vitamin B12, which helps your body metabolize fat.


When you eat green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, kale, and certain types of lettuce, you will find it much easier to lose belly fat. These vegetables are filled with fiber to keep you full and they have very few calories to cause you problems.

If you enjoy these five foods, then you will find they can help you burn belly fat more easily. Whittling down your waist can sometimes be a challenge, so you definitely want as many things helping you with your progress. Eat these five foods while exercising, and you will notice a difference fairly quickly.
