Top 5 products to help get rid of belly fat: dietitian tips

Yulia PoteriankoNews
Among the waist-friendly foods are even sweet ones

For those wondering how to get rid of belly fat, there are two pieces of news. The bad news is that it's impossible to lose weight in specific areas naturally. The good news is that studies show that when you start losing weight, it's the fat in the midsection that tends to disappear first. So the most dangerous visceral (internal) fat is not an insurmountable problem.

Nutritionist Melissa Mitry told Eat This, Not That that there are foods that help fight unhealthy appetite, lose weight, and, accordingly, lose belly fat. She also compiled her own top five foods.

Eggs

Chicken eggs are one of the highest-quality sources of protein. Protein can keep you feeling full for a longer period and contains fewer calories than both fats and carbohydrates. So a boiled egg or omelette will fill you up better than a bun. You can incorporate this product into your daily diet.

Avocado

Some studies suggest that avocados can positively affect the distribution of abdominal fat in women. This fruit pairs well with eggs. For example, you can make an egg and avocado toast for breakfast.

Hot peppers

The substance capsaicin, responsible for the heat in peppers, can suppress appetite, potentially speeding up the weight loss process. It also helps the body convert white adipose tissue, responsible for storing excess weight, into brown adipose tissue, which generates heat. This contributes to a faster reduction in waistline.

Kale cabbage

Any type of cabbage is a great addition to the diet, being rich in vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants while containing minimal calories. A real superfood. You can choose your favorite type of cabbage, but kale is renowned for being the most satisfying.

Berries

The list also includes a sweet option. The advantage of berries is that, in addition to fructose, they contain a significant amount of fiber, crucial for healthy bowel function. So, if you're having dessert, a handful of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or other berries of your choice is an ideal choice. Aim for dark-colored berries, as they contain anthocyanins, natural antioxidants that enhance the intestinal barrier function and help combat oxidative stress from excessive fat and carbohydrate intake.
