Foods that will help you trim inches off your belly

People who are looking to lose weight often become obsessed with calorie counting. Some go on hunger strikes for days thinking this will help them drop several pounds, get into shape and look fit. But studies show that real long-term weight loss isn't just about eating less. It's about eating right. To trim inches off your waistline, a solid, low-calorie diet needs to be nutrient-rich and accompanied by routine physical activity.

Here are some yummy foods you can eat and other things you can do to support your weight-loss goals without starving yourself.

Black beans

A cup of dark beans packs an incredible 15 grams of fulfilling protein and doesn't contain any of the immersed fat found in other protein sources, like red meat.


Battle fat with fat: avocados are high in monounsaturated unsaturated fats, which can help decrease that unwanted fat on your belly.


Not only are almonds loaded with skin-boosting vitamin E and protein, their high fiber content stops you from feeling hungry. Almonds themselves don't add to fat. Substitute your morning or mid-evening snack with a handful of these and notice the progress in a few days.


Begin a feast with soup, and you might wind up eating less. It doesn't make a difference if the soup is thick or pureed, as long as it's stock based. You need to keep the soup to 100 to 150 calories a serving. So avoid the chunks of cream and spread.


Oats are rich in fiber, so a serving can offer you some assistance with feeling full for the whole day. Just a half cup packs 4.6 grams of resistant starch, a sound carb that helps the digestion system and burns fat.


Buy a tub of hummus and keep it in your fridge for those midnight cravings and never again will you have to eat an unhealthy snack. You can use it as a topping for your salad or use it in your sandwiches, saving yourself tons of calories; plus it’s filling too.


The fastest approach to reducing your belly is by eating a lot of vegetables. Incorporate some green vegetables into every dinner. Kale, spinach and romaine lettuce are all to a great degree; low in calories, brimming with fiber and offer a few basic vitamins and minerals that ease water retention without bringing about the bloating.


Instead of drinking apple juice, change your diet to eating an apple instead. Apples are filling and healthy at the same time. One reason is that crude natural product has more fiber. In addition, biting sends signs to your brain that you've eaten something considerable. While drinking juices may be refreshing, they tend to add empty calories that leave you feeling hungry.


They contain numerous nutrients, a tiny bit of nearly all that we require. They are especially high in potassium, a supplement that a great many people don't get enough of and assumes an essential part in controlling your blood pressure. This means by eating white boiled potatoes you will normally feel full and eat less. If you heat up the potatoes, then allow them to cool for some time then they will form large amounts of resistant starch, a fiber-like substance that has been shown to have a wide range of medical advantages including weight loss.

Many people simply rely on body shapers such as waist trainers or the waist clincher. These can help you slim your figure instantly, removing inches from your waistline and smoothing trouble spots like "love handles." But if you want long-term results, you can't skip the healthy eating and other tips outlined above. So if you choose to wear body shapers, be sure that you're also still eating a nutritious diet and sticking to a consistent workout routine. Together, these strategies will help get you slim and fit in no time. By following this simple plan, you'll notice significant changes in the mirror in just a couple of weeks.

    So true! The best way to "diet" is to stuff yourself silly with delicious and nutritious foods that fill you up! Nobody should have to starve to lose weight healthily. Thanks for sharing!

      Exactly my point, there is no point starving as there are so many foods that don't add up much calories and fats!
