Probably one of the most complained about problem areas for women is belly fat. And it seems like the older you get, the harder it is to burn fat in your midsection. While food like white bread, sugar and rice make things worse, there are also foods that can help you get rid of the extra bulge. And the key is FIBER! It helps your digestive system which leads to more productive number 2’s.

Some belly busting foods include fiber rich oatmeal, almonds, protein powder, berries, beans, whole grain breads, and green vegetables.

Here’s some of the benefits:

Oatmeal: Fiber-rich oatmeal stays in your stomach for hours, staving off a doughnut run and preventing you from overeating. Be aware of sugary flavor varieties. Instead, choose plain flavors and add fresh fruit like bananas or blueberries.

Almonds: A Purdue University study showed that people who ate nuts felt full longer than those who ate rice cakes. Stick to 24 almonds a day to satisfy your hunger pangs without overloading on calories. Also, avoid nuts with too much added salt.

Berries: Berries stuff a lot of filling fiber into a tiny package: Just one cup of raspberries has six grams.

Eggs: Researchers at Louisiana State University found that people who ate eggs for breakfast every day lost more weight than those who ate bagels. However, if you have high cholesterol, talk to your doctor about daily recommended intakes.
