Women over fourty have to face the harsh reality that without proper maintenance our bodies can get out of control. Without diet and excercise we develop first name Belly, last name Fat, public enemy number one. She is hated by all of us. Let’s face it she is the life of the party. While the other members are intact and well proportioned, she is out of control. Belly Fat sits right in the center of it all, proud and unashamed, and ready to party with any sweetie that comes her way, and she doesn’t mind if your salty either, smh Anything is welcomed!
Every time we invite our good and tastey friends to her party she gets bigger and bigger, but this is nothing new she’s always been around and famous among many. Belly Fat is so grateful of what we’ve helped her accomplish, she keeps us all bubbly on the inside just to remind us that it’s her party and she can move how she wants to. Belly fat has gone wild! Well if I have anything to say about it and I do. I say we need to get rid of her once and for all. Drastic times calls for drastic measures.
So I sought out to get quick and easy information, and what other place better than the internet doctor google himself lol. This was my preference, now of course there are other sources out there ( for all you health nuts out there that might have qualms about using google as a reliable source of information). Again this was my preference and so I simply googled it, and what I found out is that there are natural foods that will get rid of belly fat. While there were many types of food that reduce it I chose the top five that I like the most. Watermelon, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Beans, and Celery.
Watermelon- Watermelon is so good to me I could actually eat a whole one by myself. It’s so juicy, refreshing, and filling. Some of it’s nutritional values are
- It’s rich in Vitamins
- B1, B6, and C, as well as Potassium and Magnesium.
- It’s 91% water and keeps you full longer
Cucumber– Cucumbers, I actually love cucumbers I can pretty much put them with any meal and they taste good and fit right in. Cucumbers
- are packed with Minerals, Dietay Fibers, and Vitamins particularly Vitamins B and C
- help cleanse your body of harmful toxins released by the digestion system
Tomatoes– Tomatoes had to grow on me over time. Growing up as a child I actually hated tomatoes there was just something about the taste I didn’t like. As time moved on and I got older slowly but surely I developed a taste for them. Tomatoes
- contain a compound known as 9-oxo-ADA that helps control belly fat.
- are rich in Vitamin A and C and contain the powerful antioxidant Licopene
- can also fight cancer, reduce wrinkles, and reduce cholesterol levels
Beans– Beans may not be a fan of many because after eating them they may leave you a little gassy, still I happen to like all sorts of them. Beans
- develop muscles and improve the digestive process
- keep you full for a long time
- provide energy from its protein, and have a soluable fiber that targets belly fat by helping it breakdown the fat so it can be eliminated from the body
Celery– Celery is not as popular as other vegetables but it has this amazing raw, and earthy taste that I love so much. I like to eat it raw and I also cook it with a variety of meals as well. Celery is
- full of Fiber
- contains Calcium and Vitamin C
- helps cleanse your system
Now to wrap this all up don’t get me wrong I don’t profess to be a scholar on the matter of Belly Fat, but what I am sure of is it’s a major problem. So after finding this information I was very eager to share what I learned. I have not experimented with these foods yet to see if they actually reduce Belly Fat, so my next step is to focus on and increase the amount of intake of these particular foods and let’s see what happens. Anyone care to take this journey with me please feel free to do so and give me feedback. Thanks for the read!
