10 Foods That Help Eliminate Belly Fat

It seems like even the fittest people around are trying to find ways to combat belly fat. Even people who sport washboard abs are in a never-ending battle with potential flab, and if they miss a beat in the kitchen, they soon start to see how vulnerable they are to belly fat. So, take heart, mortals. Everyone needs to mind their middle.

Of course, the reasons for eliminating belly fat include fitting into a bikini and enjoying a speedier 5k race time due to a trim middle. There are even more pressing reasons that you need to trim your tummy. You carry some pretty precious cargo in your abdominal region, such as your heart, lungs and digestive system.

As fat builds in that area, it can cause inflammation in your vital organs that can lead to heart disease, diabetes and diabetes-related conditions, high blood pressure and possibly cancer, notes Dr. Mehmet Oz.

The popular saying that “Abs are made in the kitchen" is definitely true, so take a look at 10 foods that eliminate belly fat, so you can start your own food fight against fat.

Oils

1. Oils

Different oils offer you different health benefits. Extra virgin olive oil (or EVOO) holds some basic antibacterial properties while flaxseed and walnut oils provide omega-3 fatty acids. If you want to add more vitamin E into your diet, try canola, sesame seed, sunflower seed or safflower.

Canola Oil, Soybean Oil, Safflower Oil, Cottonseed Oil, Corn Oil, and all Non-butter junk and margarine, ... and all factory made oils are TOXIC and very, very bad for you. THEY CAUSE BELLY FAT because you're body cannot process them and it stores them in the belly. They all contain "trans fats" .These oils are very damaging to the arteries, they "burn" your arteries. All of these so called "healthy" oils are made through a very high tech process, with very toxic chemicals to extract the oils. If you can't made the oil in your kitchen with a press, don't buy it! Some good oils are Olive, Coconut, Avocado.

Portion control, friend. You have to change more, eat less, and exercise......try a few crunches, like 500 per day; you'll either drop dead or you'll end up looking awesome.

I eat every one of the foods you list for getting rid of belly fat. I am trim and in good shape, but I have belly fat. So, what are your suggestions since the foods you list do not appear to work for me?
