The superfluous series: The Best Belly-Fat Burners

You exercise and eat well, but you’re still tired of your tummy tyre… I can’t promise that the foods below will turn you into a spartan, but they can help burn that pesky belly fat.

1. Low-fat milk, low-fat yogurt, Swiss cheese

Secret belly-fat burner: Calcium

Try: Healthy Frozen Banana Yoghurt

Why?

  • Studies have revealed a strong link between high calcium intake and improved body composition.
  • If your calcium is low, our body signals fat cells to hold onto fat, including your tummy tyre.
  • Aim for three servings a day (tick off two if you are having two Herbalife shakes per day)

2. Oats, barley

Secret belly-fat burner: Fibre

Try: A Shake to Sink Your Teeth Into

Why?

  • Try barley instead of white rice for extra fibre; in a study of two groups of people on a diet, the group that ate whole-grain foods lost more abdominal fat.
  • Get at least three servings of whole-grain foods a day. Oatmeal and barley are particularly good choices because they’re rich in soluble fibre and don’t typically raise blood sugar as much as white or brown rice.

3. Green tea

Secret belly-fat burner: Catechins

Try: Herbalife Tea Concentrate or Green Tea

Why?

  • Herbalife Tea and Green tea contain antioxidants that fight cancer and heart disease.
  • Catechins increase metabolism and the rate at which the liver burns fat.

4. Eggs

Secret belly-fat burner: Protein

Try: Milktart Shake, or Herbalife Formula 3 Personal Protein Powder.

Why?

  • Your body uses more calories to break down protein food than it does to break down other foods.
  • Protein also helps you keep muscle mass as you’re losing weight, and muscle burns more calories than fat.
  • Protein dampens hunger better than carbs.
  • It’s especially important to include protein at breakfast. Luckily, Herbalife Formula 1 does it for you in a convenient shake.

5. Walnuts, almonds, avocado

Secret belly-fat burner: “Good” Fats

Gator Pears

Try: Green Cream Supreme Shake

Why?

  • Nuts, gator pears and other healthy fats can be a waist-friendly addition to your diet, as long as you don’t go overboard.
  • They contain fibre, their protein, and their “good” fat, which may increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, aiding weight loss.
  • The best nuts are walnuts (omega 3) and almonds (calcium).

6. Salmon

Secret belly-fat burner: Omega-3s

Why?

  • Getting more omega-3 fatty acids could be just what the diet doctor ordered, as omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce fat mass.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids make you feel less hungry and more satisfied,
  • Salmon and other oily fish are a good source of omegas, but it’s difficult to get enough servings as we need. Most of us need to supplement, so try Herbalifeline to get the goods.

7. Blueberries

Secret belly-fat burner: Anthocyanins

Try: Herbalife Formula 1 blended with frozen or fresh blueberries.

Why?

  • Anthocyanins—phytonutrients in blueberries—may have an effect on genes that regulate fat metabolism, say researchers.
  • They suggest that one cup of blueberries a day may do the trick.

  4. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both eqully
    educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few pople are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this
    in my hunt for something relating to this.

  6. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  7. Good day! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick
    shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through your posts.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects?
    Thank you so much!
