4 Food Groups to Help You Burn Belly Fat – Womens Bootcamp

Burning belly fat can be a real challenge but the right combination of foods and exercise and you will watch those pounds melt away. Let’s look at the four food groups that will help you burn belly fat.

 1.       High Fibre Foods

You are only as healthy as your digestive system. Whole grain bread, oat bran, apples, vegetables, and ground flaxseed are all loaded with soluble and insoluble fibre, which are good for digestion and weight control. Women should try to get 25 grams of fibre a day and men should aim for 30 grams of fibre a day. Fibre fills you up and it will also flatten your mid section.

2.       Hydrating Foods

Chronic dehydration, even mild can cause a number of health conditions and it can make it difficult for you to lose weight. Our bodies are made up of 70 percent water, so next to air it is the most vital substance to our very existence. If you want to quickly and effectively flatten your belly, drink eight glasses of water a day. If you don’t like water try adding more water through foods such as watermelon, celery, or soup broths. You can also add lemon slices or lime slices to your water to enhance the taste.

3.       Low Glycemic Index Foods

The glycemic index is an excellent tool that measures the speed of carbohydrates are moving through the bloodstream. The higher the glycemic index rating on a food, the more insulin that is secreted, which can lead to excess fat being stored especially in the mid section. Avoid foods like bagels, white bread, white pastes, soda crackers, instant rice that are high glycemic foods. Low to medium glycemic foods includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and dairy products.

4.       Thermogenic Foods

Thermogenic foods are those that your body uses the most calories to digest. Lean proteins such as fish, egg whites, turkey, or chicken are good choices. Cabbage, celery, broccoli, cayenne pepper, and chilli powder also have thermogenic properties, which help you melt the fat right off your belly.

These four food groups can help you to keep your weight stable, and lose your belly fat. Healthy eating is important for burning belly fat, but choosing the right healthy foods. Not all foods that are healthy will help you burn belly fat.

Of course, exercise is an important component in your belly fat loss. Rather than spending your time doing the hated crunches, why not get involved in Maidstone boot camp and really reap the benefits while having fun!
