We bet you feel the same way we do when it comes to a flat toned tummy, “it’s got to be easier than this!” And although we can’t deny that doing crunches is good for you, there is a way to help get rid of that layer of tummy bulge.
All you need to do is ensure you include these fabulous fit foods into your nutritional plan and you’ll get there in no time!
They’re delicious, full of fibre, vitamin E and are a great source of protein. Almonds aid in muscle repair and growth and have the ability to regulate blood sugar levels. Possibly the most special part of almonds is that their cell wall composition gives them the ability to block calorie absorption (yes!), making them an extra lean nut to add to your salads or snack on.
The perfect source of protein! This protein stops us from feeling tempted by naughty snacks, and they’re loaded with good fats too. As long as you don’t have cholesterol problems, you’re safe to have eggs every day. Start your day with an omelette loaded with veggies and you’re really getting off to a good start.
The tummy trimming whole grain is yummy and a great way to flesh out your meals. Luckily for us it is also a complete protein, keeping us fuller for longer. It can also be eaten hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The richer in colour the better! Berries are exploding with antioxidants and are fibre-rich. Fibre is an important element of our diets, considering it moves food particles through our bodies and affects our calorie absorption.
Eat greens all day if you can. The darker the shade of green, and the leafier they are, the better they will be for you. Greens are super low in calories and a great source of calcium, which is essential for muscle contraction and great for a boost during your workout.
Omega-3 fatty acids are the uber-healthy fats that promote fat burning and boost our metabolism. Most seafood is an excellent source of “abs-friendly” protein. Seafood helps slow digestion and prevents cravings.
Non-Fat Greek Yoghurt
Another great source of protein, the probiotic bacteria in most yoghurt is so promoting for digestive tummy health. This means you’ll be less gassy, and less bloated and regular.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again! It’s so important to keep hydrated, and flush toxins from your body. Water fills us up and stops us mistaking hunger for thirst. Your metabolism is greatly affected by your hydration levels so ensure you drink enough water every day.
