The Top 7 Foods To Lose Belly Fat Lightning Fast

Are you struggling to lose belly fat? The answer may lie right with the foods you are eating. In this article, I will show you the most powerful 7 foods you should be having on a daily basis to lose belly fat...lightning fast!

First, you must understand that in order to lose belly fat and get that tight stomach and/or chiseled six pack abs, it takes a combination of four components to experience success.

1. Get plenty of sleep

2. Drink plenty of water (Make sure it is ice cold water. Ice cold water triggers your body to burn calories to get it to body temperature.)

3. Exercise

4. Eat the correct foods

The following are the best 7 foods to lose belly fat:

1. Monounsaturated Fats: Monounsaturated fats are vital to not just loosing belly fat, but also to your overall health. Some examples of monounsaturated fat would be Olive Oil, Olives, Avocado, Nuts, and so much more.

2. Protein Shakes: You see muscle builders around the gym chugging protein down like water...and for a good reason. Protein shakes are loaded with 20-36+ grams of protein. Protein is very important for your health, fat burning, and muscle building. Protein also repairs tissues in your muscles after working out, making it vitally important to drink or eat some form of protein at least within 30 minutes after working out. Although protein is very important for your body, you should take it in moderation.

3. Whole Grain Foods: Oatmeal (If you have oatmeal, make sure it is rolled oats and that you make it with water, soy milk, or skim milk.), whole grain cereals, whole wheat, brown rice, wild rice, pop corn (light to no salt & butter), quinoa, & whole grain corn just to name a few.

4. Fresh Fruits (Duh!): If you don't know by now that eating plenty of fruits daily will shed off pounds and reveal those much desired abs, then I would like to ask you for a discount on a round trip ticket to your home planet Mars! :) The #1 fruit to eat is Apples since they are high in fiber, low in calories and more. A little trick would be to consume an apple before you eat a meal, this way because of the fiber in apples, you will get full quicker when you eat your meal.

5. Fresh Veggies (Duh, again!): Vegetables are loaded with different vitamins, minerals, and plant chemicals are important for your health and losing belly fat. Here's a tip for you: Pack some sliced vegetables to take with you or at home to have as a quick snack. This will obviously help in deterring your desire for bad snacks.

6. Poultry Meats: Lean cuts of chicken (breast) & turkey are the best. They are packed with protein, niacin, selenium, B6 vitamins and more. It is recommended that you cook these meats by grilling, baking or roasting.

7. Seafood: Containing all eight essential amino acids, seafood is an excellent source of protein. Fish also contains omega 3 fatty acids which are vitally important for your health. The two best types to eat are salmon and tuna (if canned - light tuna in water).

Remember, you have to follow those four steps above (sleep, water, exercise, eat right) in order to successfully lose belly fat and lose weight for that matter. Don't get fooled into thinking that all you have to do is lay down and crank out 50-100 crunches a day to get a sexy stomach.

Are you you ready to "lose belly fat" now? I recommend for you to take a look at this powerful "fat burning program". This program is straight to the point and is not your typical "low calorie", "no carb", "don't eat anything all day" type of diet.

I wish you the best of success in getting yourself in better health and getting yourself those much desired six pack abs! Good Luck!
