Things You Will Need

  • Mono unsaturated fats

Besides fighting belly fat, these oils have other health benefits also. Foods such as avocado and olive can also be added to your diet to fight the bulge. Simply adding nuts such as cashew, pine and sunflower to salads or keeping on hand for snacks will also help a great deal.

Step 2

Cut out bad carbohydrates. Choose whole grain breads, rolls, cereals and rice. Not only will these foods go far in burning belly fat, they help you feel full longer so you eat less. Cut refined sugar out of your diet too.

Step 3

Step 4

Increase exercise to lose belly fat. Exercising can be as simple as walking as often as possible, bike riding or swimming. Check with your doctor before beginning any intense exercise program, especially if you have health conditions or have been living a sedentary lifestyle.
