Dos And Don'ts Of Eating Foods For A Thinner Tummy

by Clifford Ramos

The stomach is one of the hardest places to lose weight, especially when you consider that this is where our food directly goes. Fortunately, you don't have to starve yourself into getting a flat tummy. Just consult these tips for what foods to consume and steer clear of.


Water: Water is often advised for better health and fitness, and stomach weight loss is no exception. Water is great at flushing out all the extra stuff you don't need. This includes fats, salts, impurities, and toxins, all of which contribute to a belly pooch.

Fiber: Likewise, fiber is great at moving unwanted substances out of your system. So consume lots of whole grains and brown foods.  Alternatively, you may want to try fiber-rich nuts like almonds and macadamia nuts.

Fruits and Veggies: Getting in fruits and vegetables is another way to up your fiber dosage and decrease a muffin top. For vegetables, consider spinach, squash, peppers, tomatoes, avocados, carrots, and onions. Also, peaches, oranges, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapefruit, pears, plums, apples, and pineapples are a sweet way to stack up the fiber without the pounds.

MUFA: Consider monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs, for a highly recommended and effective way to shed the belly fat. For this reason, get in a healthy amount of walnuts, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, pistachios, olive oil, natural peanut butter, and dark chocolate. 


"Bloaty" Food: Consider the food that will bloat your belly rather than slim it. This will mean cutting out fatty and processed foods. You may have to bid au revoir to cheesecake, ice cream, cookies, chips, and fast food to achieve your goal. Sodium is also detrimental to your objective because it leads to a bulge, so don't go over 2,300 milligrams of sodium in a day. Also be wary of those gassy foods, including broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and beans, which are only okay in small amounts.

Eating Improperly: Of course, how you eat is just as important as what you eat. Naturally, eating a lot of food in one sitting may cause your tummy to poke out. So eat smaller meals and feel free to eat them often throughout the day. Also eat slowly so your brain can register that the stomach is full and so you avoid swallowing air, another cause of bloating.

As you can see, eating the right foods the right way can lead to great results. Just summon your willpower and commit so you can see those results. If you need extra help slimming down, consult a doctor like Body Spectrum Plastic Surgery Center - Bruce R Barton MD to learn more about tummy tucks.


About Me

Powerful Physical Therapy

I was badly injured a year ago, and it took a long time to get back to my normal level of ability. One of the things that helped more than anything was the time that I spent in physical therapy. I didn’t always love going to physical therapy – in fact, sometimes, I really didn’t enjoy it at all. But ultimately, the therapists and other patients I worked with helped inspire me to get better, and the exercises facilitated my healing process. I started this blog to talk about all of the things I learned about physical therapy and healing during my recovery time. I hope my blog reaches other accident victims. I want to offer encouragement, hope, and information for people who are in the same boat that I was in.
