Have you heard about the latest way to burn belly fat? Would you think you could lose belly fat by eating fat? That just does not sound possible, or is it? According to the editors (and experts) of Prevention magazine, this is very possible. There are certain foods you can eat that will burn belly fat away without ever having to do a crunch. These foods target the belly area in women and if you include them in your diet (at every meal), you can burn belly fat away easily.
Understand what is known as "MUFAs." MUFA is short for monounsaturated fatty acids. This type of fat is considered to be a healthy form of fat that will target the fat found in the belly area. MUFAs are "good fat" that you must include in every meal for this plan to work. There are five main groups of MUFAs from which you can pick. Each one is detailed below.
Select from the numerous MUFA oils available to cook with or add to your creations. You can use any of the following oils in your meals to burn belly fat: canola, olive oil, safflower oil, flaxseed oil, sesame oil, peanut oil, walnut oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil and pesto sauce.
Choose the right seeds and nuts that contain MUFA. All of these nuts and seeds burn belly fat and can be consumed as snacks or added to many recipes: almond butter, natural peanut butter (smooth and crunchy), cashew butter, dry-roasted cashews, dry-roasted sunflower seeds, dry-roasted peanuts, roasted pumpkin seeds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pine nuts, pecans, macadamia nuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seed paste (tahini).
Add avocados to your meals to burn belly fat. Include either the Hass or Florida avocado in many different entrées to incorporate this MUFA in your diet.
Eat plenty of olives. Choose from black olives, green olives or black olive tapenade or green olive tapenade and watch the belly fat disappear.
Include chocolate MUFAs in your diet plan to burn belly fat. Pick from semi-sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or chunks or shavings of both to add this delicious belly-fat-burning MUFA.
