You can invest in you, not just because belly fat is dangerously unhealthy, but so you can have those slimmer, sexier, healthier abs you desire.
Follow these 6 simple steps for just 30 days and notice the difference in your abs:
Step 1 - Remove 6 Flat Belly Foods
1. White Sugar
2. Trans fats (Fried Food)
3. Refined Carbohydrates
4. White Salt
5. Artificial Sweeteners
6. Sodas/ Fruit Juice
Step 2 - Add the following five flat-belly foods
The following five flat-belly foods help you burn fat in two ways: by speeding up your metabolism, reducing insulin levels, and by increasing muscle mass (muscle cells burn more calories than fat). Your goal is to add more of these five flat-belly foods into your diet to help burn belly fat.
1. Lean Fish, Chicken, and Turkey Lean fish, chicken, and turkey are all good sources of lean protein. The more protein you eat, the harder your body has to work to digest it, resulting in more calories burned during the eating process. The healthiest lean proteins are fish (particularly wild salmon), chicken, and turkey. Avoid the skin on chicken and turkey, as that is where all the saturated fat is found. And of course, we’re not going to fry the fish, chicken, or turkey because of the fatty oils (trans fats), but rather bake, broil, grill, or lightly sauté them.
The biggest advantage to eating veggies, particularly the green leafy veggies, is that you can eat them in abundance and still lose weight. The best veggies to eat to burn belly fat are spinach, broccoli, asparagus, kale, collards, turnip greens, mustard greens, beet greens, wheatgrass, carrots, eggplant, celery, peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and radishes. Try a veggie stir-fry in olive oil with a little cayenne pepper to make a delicious fat burning meal.
3. Nuts and Seeds Nuts and seeds are healthy fats that help you burn fat. Nuts and seeds are a great healthy snack option. However, a word of caution: If you want to lose belly fat, or any fat on your body, you should limit your intake of nuts and seeds to one serving (one ounce) per day because they are so calorie-rich; they are a healthy fat, but a fat nonetheless. As long as you don’t overeat nuts and seeds, and preferably eat them raw, they promote weight loss and appetite suppression, not weight gain. So how many nuts make up an ounce? Think “a handful”—what you can hold in your palm. As a tip, I tell my clients to fill up an empty Altoids box with nuts or seeds so you can travel with your handy snack at all times. You don’t want to sit in front of the TV watching and eat an entire bag of nuts. Healthy eating means we don’t eat out of boredom or for recreation. You want to be disciplined about how you eat and snack!
4. Green Tea
Studies have shown that green tea is one of the best 6 WAYS TO LOSE BELLY FAT WITHOUT EXERCISE!
Green tea also slows the aging process—it’s twenty times more effective in slowing the aging process than vitamin E because of its strong antioxidant capacity, according to some research. There are many wonderful benefits of drinking green tea, but as far as weight loss goes, it simply helps the body burn fat faster and more efficiently.

5. Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne pepper is known as a fat burner because it fires up your metabolism. It heats up the body, and the body burns calories when it tries to cool itself down. So spice it up for sure! It’s so effective, some people actually buy cayenne pepper capsules to burn fat. Protein Shakes Protein shakes will help you build muscle, and the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn each day. Protein will also help stabilize blood sugar levels and prevents insulin spikes that result in fat storage. There are several different types of protein powders available. Whey protein is popular. It is a complete highquality protein that speeds up metabolism. But it comes from cow’s milk, so if you are allergic to dairy, whey protein will cause gas, bloating, and indigestion. My favorite alternatives are rice, soy, and hemp protein powders. If you are a vegetarian, you can use rice protein or a plant-based protein powder to accomplish the same thing.
Step 3 - Eat clean foods (non processed, wholefood)
Step 4 - Limit Your Intake of Red Meat to Two to Three Times per Week
Most red meat contains a lot of saturated fat, so try to limit your intake to two or three times a week. I told you earlier how to pick “lean red meat” when you’re grocery shopping, but until you really understand how to do that, it’s best to just limit the amount of red meat to just two, max three times per week. Instead, eat more lean protein from fish, chicken, and other sources, such as eggs, brown rice, beans, and nuts, which contain good essential fats.
Step 5 - Eat Every 3 to 4 Hours
A lot of people diet by eating only once or twice a day, but this is a big mistake. Eating so infrequently significantly slows metabolism and makes it harder for the body to burn belly fat. To burn fat, you should try to eat every three to four hours and think in terms of three meals and two healthy snacks per day. So this is good news! It is important to eat more frequently to burn belly fat! Now why is that? Every time you eat, you have to burn calories to digest your food. Eating increases your metabolic rate, allowing you to burn fat all day. When you eat only once or twice a day, your body gets a signal telling it that it is food-deprived, causing the body to respond by slowing the metabolic rate and holding on to existing fat reserves to prepare for food scarcity.
To get the best results, commit to at least thirty days of removing and adding the foods listed. Once you reach your goal and eliminate excess belly fat, having the occasional fat-belly food won’t be too detrimental. It’s eating them on a regular basis that causes persistent belly fat.
