Top 12 foods to reduce belly fat

he struggle to achieve a flat stomach is like no other. Especially for us as Indians. This is because we are used to eating dinner only after 8 pm and our traditional Indian snacks can make us lose our focus more often than not. A bloated stomach not only ruins our confidence but also tends to hamper with our personality, particularly if we are a part of the corporate world. Here are 12 foods that can help you get rid of that belly fat you have been struggling with for a while now:

1. Almonds: Rich in vitamin E and protein, almonds are also rich in fiber. If you are aiming for a flat stomach, you need to get your cravings in hand. The best way is to snack on healthy foods which make you feel fuller for a longer time and do not bloat your stomach at the same time. Almonds are a good start as they contain healthy calories and help curb your hunger.

2. Watermelon: The water-loaded fruit is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals. Not only does it contain 82 percent water, but it also helps in removing excess sodium from the body. Sodium contributes to a bloating stomach and watermelon helps get rid of that. Other than this, watermelon is also loaded with vitamin C and contains barely 100 calories in one cup.

3. Green leafy vegetables: As mentioned earlier, fiber is needed to get a feeling of fullness for a longer period of time. Leafy vegetables are also low in calories and serve the purpose of fulfilling your nutritional deficiencies, which maybe the cause for a protruding stomach. Filling up your plate with vegetables will help you keep a bulging belly at bay.

4. Beans: Beans and legumes are great for getting rid of body fat, developing muscles and improving digestion. This is because beans and legumes contain essential nutrients which help the body maintain its nutrition quotient. If you often fall prey to over indulgence, then beans and legumes are your rescue foods.

5. Cucumber: Loaded with only 45 calories, cucumbers are great for a flat stomach. This is because cucumber contains as much as 96 percent water content, which does not give you a bloating stomach and helps your body to cool down.

6. Avocado: This foreign superfood is rich in healthy fats that help your body burn bad fat easily. Considered a magic fruit due to its many health benefits, avocados are extremely essential for those looking to lose belly fat due to the presence of monounsaturated fatty acids present in the fruit.

7. Oats: This weight loss superfood is high in protein and low in calories, which make it the perfect food for a flat stomach. Oats take time to digest in the body and hence, tend to burn calories. This is what makes oats a good source of energy through the day and lowers your cholesterol.

8. Water: Water is the ultimate answer to many of our bodily troubles. Need to lose weight? Have enough water,. Have a headache? Complete your water intake every day. Need a flat stomach? Wash off toxins from your body with enough water. However, it is important to remember that too much water can lead to potassium loss in the body. Therefore, sticking to a minimum of 2 litres is essential.

9. Apples: Another fiber packed food, apples are great for a flat stomach. Mid-day snacks are often dangerous, especially if you are working. Too much stress can also make us hog on unhealthy foods. Apples are great as healthy snacks as they make you feel full for a longer time.

10. Peppermint: Peppermint is considered to be great for removing belly fat as it has healing and calming digestive properties which work in the favour of our body. The best way to consume it is in the ]form of tea. You can also add one drop of peppermint oil in your water and consume it.

11. Eggs: Our favourite Sunday breakfast food can be added to our list of belly reducing foods. This is because eggs contain proteins, essential for a thin stomach. Upping your protein intake on a daily basis will definitely help you achieve this goal faster.

12. Fish: Fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and proteins, both of which are extremely needed nutrients for weight loss and a flat stomach. Consuming good fats help get rid of bad ones and thus contribute to a healthier and fitter body.
