The Belly Fat Cure

Here's a belly fat cure we can all do.

Eat just a half cup of cooked beans every day. Eat more fiber-rich food, and more belly fat disappears, says science.

The Belly Fat Cure

The belly fat cure is as simple, as it is powerful. Eating just a little fiber can have a big impact on your belly fat.

Research on overweight Latino/American boys and girls ages 11 to 17 found that increasing their intake of dietary fiber over a two-year period resulted in major decreases in the amount of fat around their waists. By contrast, adolescents whose fiber intake fell saw their bellies expand.

Belly Fat Cure – Simple, Powerful

The really good news is that just a little fiber – six grams a day – did the trick. Foods naturally rich in fiber include:

  • Cooked beans, i.e, pinto beans, black beans, and garbanzo beans (Just one-half cup gives you 5 to 6 grams of fiber)
  • Hot whole-grain cereal, like oatmeal (One cup, cooked, equals 5 grams of fiber)
  • Fresh fruit (One cup tallies up about 5 grams of fiber)
  • Baked potato (5 grams of fiber)
  • Baked sweet potato (5 grams of fiber)
  • Big green salad (about 5 grams of fiber)
  • 100% whole-wheat bread (about 3 grams of fiber)
