But because you aren’t the type to give up on your dreams of having a chiseled and healthy body, you can’t relate. As one of the best ways to get toned abs and cut down on belly fat, your diet plays a huge role. By cutting down on these three foods, you can reduce your belly fat and be sexier in no time.

If you work in an office, you know just how tempting it can be to reach for a donut— especially when that 10 am hunger hits. However, to help you offset those cravings and keep your calorie and fat intake low, try eating a nice bowl of homemade, unsweetened oatmeal every morning for breakfast. Filled with fiber and nutrients, oatmeal is a healthy way to help you stay full and keep off that belly fat.

Lean Protein

Although that burger or steak may be calling your name, these types of meats are loaded with fat which will most likely go to your— you guessed it— belly. To help you get the leanest middle section around, try to stick to a diet full of lean protein. For instance, fill your diet full of all-natural chicken breasts, fish, almonds, ground turkey, and egg whites— you’ll notice a quick difference.

Kale and Spinach

If you haven’t hopped on the green smoothie train just yet, you really are missign out. Green vegetables like kale and spinach contain more vitamins and minerals than virtually any other type of food, earning them the badge of “superfood.” Additionally, because these greens are packed full of fiber, you can help to regulate your digestive system and really cut down on that belly fat.

If you hit the gym hard everyday but still have some excess fat around your middle, try eating the foods listed above. To learn more about how you can get a more chiseled physique, contact Dr. Rick Silverman today.
