Food That Will Help You Lose That Muffin Top That’s Making You Uncomfortable

It happens nearly every fall through till winter, the cold weather clothing comes out of hiding, and before you know it, you’ve put on a few pounds. But what’s really weird is you don’t notice the weight gain until the middle of Spring, when you’re digging out your favorite pair of shorts, put them on, and, well, stare at the mirror in shock!

Let’s get one thing straight before we carry on, people come in all shapes and sizes, and they’re all wonderful, people shouldn’t have to be skinny, fat, muscular, fit, or whatever else, people, at least to us, should be healthy and living life.

Now, we’ve got our intentions clear; we’ll move on to tell you what foods you can eat to help you lose that muffin top you’re not happy with. Please remember food and exercise go hand in hand, so if you want quick results, you’ll need to workout as well.

Oats

Oats have two benefits:

They’re packed with fiber, which will make you feel fuller for longer.

You probably gained weight in the winter because your body needed to store fat to keep you warm. Oats help your body stabilize your blood sugar level to stop your body from releasing too much of that “store fat” hormone, which will stop your food cravings.

Eggs

Okay, the days of believing eggs are bad for you are long gone, but that doesn’t mean you should be eating eggs every single day. Eggs are packed with protein, healthy fats, and amino acids which give your metabolism a kick-start, keep you feeling full, and make you feel energized.

Just keep one very important thing in mind: if you’re after losing weight, you need to make a lifestyle change to keep that weight off. Otherwise, you'll be back on this trip again next year.

Coconut Oil

The many studies carried out on coconut oil have proven that this oil can help people lose weight, curb their appetite, and help people eliminate the dangerous belly fat.

Blueberries

These little berries are packed with antioxidants which help your cells recover. They’re also full of fiber and tannin, which helps you deal with that unwanted bloated feeling.

Apples

This fruit is absolutely packed with fiber and pectin, which is what makes you feel satiated for longer. It’s an easy snack to have midday too.

Greek Yogurt

It’s light on the stomach, but it’s high in protein and contains good bacteria, which will help your digestive system.

Salmon

This fish is full of protein and all the good fats you need to start losing weight. Plus it's light on your stomach.

Almonds

Looking for a snack that will keep you going until dinner time, almonds are the perfect snack. You only need a handful to feel full and get a dose of protein.

Spinach

There’s a reason Popeye always ate spinach, and that’s because this leafy green is packed with good nutrients, like vitamin C, magnesium and more.

Chilli Peppers

If you’re looking for a healthy kick to your food these little burners are perfect. They can help to boost your metabolism.
