Designed to rev up your metabolism for the weeknights, these five dinner recipes will have you fighting fat like never before.
Stomach fat can be incredibly difficult to get rid of. There are two different types of fat within your body, subcutaneous fat and visceral fat.
Subcutaneous fat is the fat that is visible just beneath your skin – the fat that makes you appear fat. Visceral fat is the fat buried deep beneath the surface of the skin that is wrapped around your internal organs.
Visceral fat is the most dangerous type of fat as it is so close to your organs, and it’s the most important fat for you to target.
Your stomach contains both types of fat, and it’s especially important to remove visceral fat from your tummy area as there are so many important organs in that part of your body. Read more about top foods to avoid to reduce stomach fat here.
So how do you fight the fat? Well, there are some types of foods that can actively fight stomach fat – and if you combine a few of these foods into one meal, you can fight the flab whilst also eating delicious food.
