5 Best Foods That Burn Belly Fat

This was probably my favorite list because I am one of those lucky dogs that has “the genetics” for a flat tummy. I’m not gonna beat around the bush here, I’m not going to tell you that I’m gonna eat the 5 foods on this list and magically turn a banana into the 6th!

All the research and data (shown below) say that these foods are great for burning off that stubborn belly fat, and it’s very likely that you have found your own 5 favorites that work for you.

We all know that we need protein and fat to burn fat. Well, I have to disagree with you a little and say that some protein is better than others.

Here’s why:

There are some carbohydrates (lunch meals, for example) that should be accompanied by protein, and some that shouldn’t.

Case and point: I have a huge love for beef jerky and was surprised to see it at the top of this list.

This is because the carbs in the jerky are just sugar and not “good carbs” so they shouldn’t be included on this list.

Also take note that your “favorite food” is probably your “problem food”. I mean, you’ve probably been trying to cut carbs or reduce fat for ages without a positive result. Now, you read this site and think, “YES! That’s exactly what’s been missing!”

So you start with the same carbs that are destroying your diet and you continue to consume more. There are two problems with this, however, and you’ll notice that they’re both carbs:

You’ve eaten carbs that were NOT included on this list.

Well, what happens now? The body converts all the carbs to fat, and you’re never actually losing fat.

1. Drink Green Tea

We’ve already mentioned before that green tea is loaded with antioxidants and catechins that help to boost your metabolism and burn fat. We’ve also mentioned how antioxidants will keep your body from turning food into fat, but it’s worth noting that the catechins in green tea also boost your energy.

One thing that we don’t usually point out is that green tea helps to reduce blood sugar. This isn’t just because of the antioxidants, but because the water in green tea actually helps to break down protein. Studies have found that green tea drinkers’ insulin levels aren’t as high as those who don’t drink green tea.

So while green tea can help to burn fat, it can also help your body to regulate blood sugar and stay more consistent in the long term.

2. Add Cinnamon

The benefits of cinnamon are a bit of a “hot debate” on this site, but you can’t argue with the studies. First off, you should know that cinnamon can help you to burn fat. The reason? Cinnamon contains a chemical called eugenol, which can actually force your body to make more fat burning hormones, such as beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetone. Beta-hydroxybutyrate helps your body to burn fat by breaking down protein.

Cinnamon can also help your gut to detox. When we say that, we actually mean that cinnamon works to increase the levels of certain chemicals that help to clean your system. This includes the liver, the lungs and the kidneys. Because of this, we’ve mentioned how cinnamon can help to improve overall health and how it might even lower your risk of certain conditions, such as diabetes.

3. Add More Water

Remember the whole thing about how the water in green tea helps to burn fat? Well, this is because it helps to dilute the calories you’re taking in, which then gets turned into energy. So if you drink green tea, you’re effectively helping your body to burn more calories. You’re also more likely to drink more water if you add it to your tea, so you’ll also burn off calories (which is why we recommend drinking green tea first thing in the morning).

Plus, the addition of green tea to water means that the water itself is going to be more alkalized, meaning that it will have less acidity to it.

4. Use A Different Type Of Protein

Speaking of a different kind of protein, another kind of protein that can help you to burn fat is a whole food protein. We recommend a whole food protein first thing in the morning to kickstart your metabolism, and we’re suggesting egg whites because they’re a good, solid source of protein that doesn’t give you a spike in insulin. This means they won’t cause your levels of insulin to spike in the first place.

We also recommend that you also eat eggs at your main meal, which will help to boost your metabolism throughout the day.

5. Choose Low-Carb Fruit

Instead of the high-carb fruit, try adding something that’s lower in carbs to your breakfast. A great example of this is orange juice. Instead of having fruit at breakfast, choose something like a protein shake to get your morning energy started.

6. Add Cinnamon To Your Oatmeal

Cinnamon can increase metabolism in your body by stimulating your body’s energy use. Adding cinnamon to your oatmeal will increase your metabolic rate and therefore your energy use, which means that you’ll be burning more calories throughout the day.

7. Eat A Piece Of Bacon, A Piece Of Peanut Butter, A Piece Of Cheese

You’ll want to get some protein (and fat and carbs) into your system early on in the morning, which you can get from eating a piece of bread, peanut butter, or an egg white.

For the best results, get some fat, some carbs, and some protein into your morning cup of coffee and tea.

8. Consume A Banana

A perfect example of a high-fat food that boosts metabolism. Bananas are also great for regulating your blood sugar levels and keeping you feeling fuller for longer. Bananas have also been shown to benefit your heart.

Instead of grabbing a donut, try and get a banana instead.

9. Take A Baked Egg

Your body won’t experience a huge effect the first time you eat one, but they’re easy and quick to prepare, and contain plenty of different nutrients.

Eating baked eggs is an alternative to eating scrambled eggs. Scrambled eggs have been known to contain less calcium and vitamin B-12 than they’re supposed to. If you’re on a vegetarian diet, baking eggs works just as well.

Take a couple of eggs and just boil them for 10-12 minutes. You’ll get protein, fat, and a healthy source of antioxidants and vitamins from these tasty breakfast treats.

10. Eat A Bowl Of Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a delicious and healthy way to start your day. Just be sure to prepare the oatmeal the night before and cook it in the morning. If you want more oatmeal, double the amount you’ve prepared.

Eat a bowl of oatmeal in the morning, you’ll feel full for hours and even experience lasting energy.

11. Drink Your Fruit Juice

If you’ve already had breakfast, you can still help your metabolism and lose weight by drinking a glass of fruit juice at this point.

Fruit juice contains antioxidants and provides plenty of nutrients that don’t get consumed if you go directly to food after a meal. Fasting for an hour before eating is important to boost metabolism and help burn fat. However, this should only be done once or twice a week.

12. Drink A Glass Of Milk

Whilst there are studies to suggest that milk has calories, for the most part it’s an important source of protein which helps to boost metabolism and suppress hunger.

Milk also prevents your blood from clotting, improving the effects of breakfast.

If you have the time, drink a half a cup of milk in the morning, you won’t feel hungry.

13. Have Your Breakfast Later

It may seem like a no-brainer, but by having your breakfast after a late dinner, you may get the most nutrition with the least time and effort. The idea is to delay your digestion for as long as possible to burn more calories.

Many breakfast options take longer to digest than the usual quick carb-laden meal. Protein is easier to break down and doesn’t get stored as fat. The body just can’t consume it as quickly.
