So many Americans try to find ways to battle the bulge daily — from weight loss supplements and the latest diet fad. But, there are much simpler ways to fight the battle of the bulge, or love handles rather. Here are nine affordable and tasty foods that can help you get the results you’re looking for.
Apples/Pears – Fruits like apples, pears, and berries are rich in fiber and antioxidants, so, there’s no wonder why they’re great for fighting the bulge, especially around the mid-section.
Oatmeal – All natural oatmeal (no flavor or sugar added) is your best bet in fighting belly fat with its fiber-filled ingredients.
Spinach (Green veggies) – Green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli are also great for reducing belly fat.
Black Beans – Because black beans are high in protein and fiber, they are great for filling your appetite while warning off added weight to your mid-section.
Nuts – Nuts such as almonds, pistachio, walnuts and sunflower seeds help to eliminate bloating and belly fat with their muscling building and craving reduction abilities. The vitamin E in almonds also work together to cut cholesterol. They’re a great source of vegetable protein and fiber.
Eggs – Eggs, especially egg whites are high in protein, which helps to build muscle and eliminate fat.
Avocado – Avocados, a great source of heart-healthy MUFA, contain more of the cholesterol-smashing beta-sitosterol than any other fruit. For this reason, the fruit aids in warning off belly fat.
Flaxseed/Olive Oil – Monounsaturated fats like olive, flax seed and canola oil are great for not only fighting the bulge, it’s nourishes your body with healthy fats instead.
Peanut Butter – Would you know that peanuts boosts testosterone, builds muscle and burns fat? And that’s not all. Peanuts also aids in fighting obesity, muscle loss, wrinkles, and cardiovascular disease.
