Choose natural, Greek style, unsweetened/flavoured yogurt. It’s packed with probiotics to aid digestion and dispel bloating, and it’s full or protein so it’ll keep your blood sugar levels steady and keep you feeling fuller, longer.
Top 6 Foods for Flatter Stomach
It’s a tempting proposition when it comes to menu choices, but are the promises of these ‘smart foods’ too good to be true?
The bottom line is that loosing fat from your tummy area and getting a flatter stomach takes a multi-pronged approach.
And you’ll need the right nutritional approach.
Most of the foods discussed fit into one of three important food categories for eating to get fitter, namely foods that are:
- High in fiber
- High in protein
- High in mono unsaturated fates
There are 6 foods in particular that stood out in research as being consistently as the best choices for those of us wanting to target the tummy area.
Aside from the fact that almonds are one of our favourite tasting nuts, they’re also a great source of protein, fibre and monounsaturates, which help regulate blood sugar levels and contain components that can cut colestoral.
Weight trainers’ ‘go-to’ source of protein, a breakfast of eggs will keep you feeling sated throughout the morning. What’s more their balance of essential amino acids will help your body build those strong abdominal muscles that will keep your tummy looking flat and firm.
Oily fish like salmon (along with tuna and mackerel) pack a double whammy: a great source of protein, and one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Oily fish can help slow digestion, regulate blood sugar and reduce food cravings. Choose tinned wild salmon, not the smoked kind.
Like extra virgin olive oil, avocados are crammed with monounsaturated fats and with potassium. Not just a choice of starter in retro Italian restaurants, eating just half an avocado at lunch can stem food cravings for the next 5 hours.
Chose berries that are blue or red in colour (blueberries, blackberries, acai berries, cherries). They’re fibre rich and crammed with nutrients.
