What NOT to eat to BLAST Belly Fat!

Cheree says, “Food plays a major part in managing our weight, eating a healthy diet is a fantastic way to to lose weight and keep it off. Everything in moderation is a lovely thought, however, when trying to blast belly fat, reducing and avoiding a few fat promoting foods is a fantastic idea.”

Cheree’s Top 8 foods to leave off the plate when losing weight

1.Deep fried foods

These foods are often made with trans fats which clog arteries and is linked to cardiovascular disease. Also, reusing oil turns it inflammatory.

2.Fast food burgers

These are high in calorie load, burgers from restaurants and fast food joints are high in saturated fats and have very little nutritional benefit.

3. “White” foods

White rice, pasta and bread sit high on the glyceamic index, causing blood sugars to spike after consuming them and contributing to insulin resistance and diabetes.

4. High sodium foods

Processed foods are usually high in sodium and are linked with higher amounts of belly fat.

5. Sweetened yogurt and drinks

sugar in food

Sugar or artificially sweetened foods and drinks are both no good for belly fat. Excess sugar is stored as fat, while artificially sweetened foods induce cravings and can lead to overeating.

6. Alcohol

Alcohol impairs liver detoxification, so it makes it harder to lose weight.

7. Lollies, cakes and cookies

Lollies, cakes and cookies- sugar based versions of these are broken down very quickly into simple sugars in your body, and is very quickly utilized. This leads to feeling hungry again soon after, and can lead to over eating.

8. “Low fat” products

Manufacturers will often add sugar or artificial sweeteners to low-fat products to compensate for the lack of flavour, causing the blood sugar spiking cycle we’ve talked about before. Another thing to note is mindset around low fat marketed products, with people eating more in quantity than they would if the product was “full fat”.

Cheree’s Top Tips To Reduce Belly Fat

  • Eat real food.
  • Eat nutrient dense snacks.
  • Eat in balance.
  • Drink water or sparkling water.
  • Be mindful of decisions and portions.
  • Read labels and don’t always believe the buzz words on the packet.
  • Don’t eat fake foods!!
