5 Foods to Avoid to Lose Belly Fat FASTER

5 Foods to Avoid to Lose Belly Fat FASTER

NO ONE wants a flabby or bloated belly and having one can increase your risk of a host of health problems.

Excess fat puts pressure on the pancreas and other precious organs, so we have to be careful, to make sure that our waist stays at a safe size.

Sometimes it’s the food we eat that can cause that full, gassy feeling.

Here’s a list of foods that may be contributing to your belly fat, so you may want to think about limiting or avoiding them.

Ditch these 9 foods to get rid of tummy fat

1. Dairy products

Lactose intolerance can range from mild to severe, but either way, gas is usually a symptom. If you are feeling bloated, try limiting the amount of milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream you eat, and see if that helps. If it does, you don’t have to ditch dairy altogether. Drink lactose-free milk, or take Lactaid pills to help your body digest milk products.

2. White flour and rice

Try to cut back on the white carbs if you are truly determined to see your belly vanish. Trade your white bread, flour, rice, and pasta for whole grain products such as brown bread and rice. White carbs have already been processed and are therefore digested rapidly by the body to be stored as fat.

3. Soft drinks

Soft drinks

Soda is not only unhealthy for you, it increases belly fat. It has empty calories that add excess weight and also provides large amounts of sugars. This sugar comes in the form of  fructose and other additives. Your body has a hard time burning this sugar off, especially in the mid-section.  You may think that diet soft drink are better, but they also contain artificial sweeteners that contribute to bad health. It’s best to drink pure water to lose your belly fat.

4. Processed baked goods

So convenient, so tasty (if we’re being honest here), but so not worth it. Those pre-packaged mini muffins, doughnuts, and dessert cakes will add tons of calories and loads of unwanted sugar to your diet, plus they aren’t easy to digest.

These foods are bad on so many levels, because they are filled with high sugar content and preservatives for a longer shelf-life — they can literally sit there forever!

Sugar increases inflammation, which is not only bad for you but can also make you look puffy and bloated. Skip the wrapped stuff and grab fresh fruit for a sweet fix instead.

5. Fried foods

Fried foods

Deep fried chicken and french fries taste good, but they will not do your stomach any favor. Fast food, for example, is usually greasy and has very little vitamins and minerals or fiber. Instead, it is loaded with sodium and trans-fat which manifests itself in your stomach. If you must have fast food, choose more healthy options from the menu.
