To help you eliminate that layer of fat we have compiled a list of the 10 best foods that you should be eating to speed up your fat loss. Incorporate these foods into your diet. Also, make sure that you are eating less calories than your body burns, that you’re avoiding sugar and unhealthy fats, and that you’re drinking lots of water.

10 Foods That Help Eliminate Belly Fat:

1. Broccoli

Broccoli is a fat burning and testosterone increasing super food that you can’t afford to skip. Research shows that this low calorie dark green vegetable is loaded with nutrients that help you lose weight.

2. Eggs

Eggs are packed with high quality protein, omega-3 fats and nutrients. Specifically, eggs contain a nutrient called Choline that is shown to increase metabolism. Eat three whole eggs a day to help lose fat from your belly and build muscle.

3. Green Tea

A number of studies have demonstrated that people who drink green tea four or five times a day lose more belly fat than those who don’t drink green tea. Green tea contains a natural chemical ingredient called epigallocatechin gallate that helps the body use stored fat as fuel.

4. Yogurt

Studies have shown that low-fat and sugar free yogurt contains calcium, quality proteins and other healthy satiating ingredients that help get rid of belly fat.

5. Lean Meat

Lean sources of protein such as lean chicken breast, lean beef and wild caught salmon keep you full and satiated for longer prevent you from overeating. In addition, the body burns 35% more calories to break down digested protein.

Salmon is a particularly good source of protein when your goal is to burn belly fat as quickly as possible due to its high content of healthy omega-3 fats and other anti-inflammation nutrients and minerals.

6. Walnuts

When it comes to nuts, walnuts are in a league of their own. Walnuts contain high amounts of the omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid and mono-saturated fats. Both of these healthy fat ingredients help keep you satiated and your body burning belly fat.

7. Avocado

Avocado is another potent belly fat burning food. Avocados, like walnuts, are a great source of mono-saturated fat and the very slow digesting carbohydrates in avocados help keep insulin and blood sugar levels low so that your body’s ability to burn belly fat remains high.

8. Olive Oil

Similar to walnuts and avocados, olive oil is full of healthy, belly fat eliminating mono-saturated fats. In addition, not only does olive oil lower bad cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health, but it also promotes your body’s ability to burn more stored belly fat.

9. Flaxseed

Flaxseed is another fat burner that contains potent fat omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid. Studies have shown that this fatty acid stimulates your body’s ability to burn stored belly fat and discourages your body from increasing fat storage.

10. Grapefruit

Studies have shown grapefruit’s incredible properties in helping reduce belly fat. Grapefruit tends to reduce the body’s insulin levels via chemical known as Naringin. Naringin prevents fat from being stored in the body.
