Weight Loss Tip: Don't over eat when you're pregnant. Many mothers think that because they're pregnant they need to take in significantly more calories when in fact you only need an extra 250-300 calories a day. More important than the amount of food you eat is the quality. Make sure you're maintaining a balanced diet.
It is true that fruits are high in calories and natural sugar, but not everything is about the calorie count. It should be common sense that a banana which has 100 calories is much healthier than a low-fat bag of “cookies” that are pumped with chemicals and fake sweeteners. Some fruits even contain many nutritional substances that will actually burn belly fat, not make your body gain it.
Here are top 5 fruits that burn the belly fat on your body.
Avocado nutrients have fat that tell your body to stop spiking blood sugar. Spikes in blood sugar cause your body to store extra fat, and excess fat on our bodies is something that we all want to avoid.
Keep in mind these fruits are calorie and fat heavy, so just one combined with a meal is plenty for a day. Try adding a slice or two to a salad. You can also try making some spicy guacamole with jalapeno peppers. Incidentally jalapenos burn belly fat as well.
Blueberries help you battle body fat while decreasing cardiovascular disease and risk of diabetes. Blueberries reduced belly fat by 2 percent when consuming a small amount of blueberries every day.
The results are linked to high percentage of high antioxidants that rid your body of toxins that lead to weight gain and other health problems. Adding blueberries to yogurt of a bowl of cereal is an easy way to incorporate them into your diet.
Bananas are filled with healthy fibers that help curb appetite and make the body burn fat. The indigestible fibers in bananas, or a resistant starch, block carbs from being absorbed by the body. This makes the body burn belly fat as energy instead of the carbs.
The potassium in bananas helps build muscle that will in turn burn belly fat.
Pomegranate juice is filled with antioxidants that get rid of the unwanted toxins in our body. The type of antioxidants in pomegranates are polyphenols, and these antioxidants boost the body’s metabolism. To top it off they stop arterial lipid build-up and lower the appetite.
Try drinking a glass of pomegranate juice with a meal, or making a pomegranate milkshake.
These fruits are packed with a whole lot of vitamin c and phytonutrients that both are fat killer. Vitamin C is what enables our bodies to burn fat that is already stored with exercise. The phytonutrient caretenoid serves as an antioxidant for our body that helps with losing weight and cardiovascular health.
