Belly fat is annoying and so hard to get rid of ugh! However, it is very possible to get rid of it in other ways. Getting enough sleep is one of them as not sleeping enough causes hormonal imbalance and interference with metabolism which usually regulated when we sleep. Besides, when your brain is awake you tend to eat more and think about food more.
You can also get rid of belly fat by consuming certain foods. Yup! Belly fat can slowly go away if you consume certain foods without exercising. To lose body fat without exercising you will need to:
Increase your protein intake
Protein consumption increases our metabolism and helps to maintain muscle mass. Your body will work extra to burn calories when you consume protein (animal protein especially) than when we consume fats and carbs.
Eat foods rich in Omega-3
Omega-3 works by breaking down fat in the body while reducing additional fat storage and decreasing blood sugar levels. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in sardines, salmon, walnuts, halibut, Brussels sprouts and flax seeds.
Consume foods rich in Fiber
When you eat foods high in fiber content you lower the amount of visceral fat in the body. Foods rich in fiber include oats, legumes, blueberries, sweet potatoes, apples and celery.
Drink lots of green tea
Green tea and metabolism go hand in hand. Green tea helps release fat from fat cells and speeds up the liver’s fat burning capabilities.
Nuts are packed with healthy fats and can help one lose weight when eaten in moderation as a snack. Nuts work by stabilizing blood sugar giving you the feeling of fullness.
Eat dark chocolate
Studies have shown that dark chocolate that is atleast 70% Cacao, can help reduce overall body fat as it contains Flavanoids (which contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties).
Season your food with black pepper
A compound found in black pepper known as Piperine works by decreasing inflammation and inhibits the creation of new fat cells hence helping with the burning of fat.
