You may have heard the saying: “Abs are made in the kitchen.” Well, it’s true. In fact, proper nutrition will lead you to a leaner stomach faster than doing ab exercises alone. Here are 5 foods than will help you get closer to those flat abs you’ve been wanting:

Almonds – benefits: protein, fiber, and vitamin E. Research has also shown that Almonds also have a special ability to block calories.

Eggs – a perfect source of protein. Eating eggs helps you feel fuller longer. Opt for egg whites to reduce fat and extra cholesterol.

Apples – a great source of fiber. Apples are nearly 85 percent water, eating them makes you “feel” fuller. Apples also have a special compound shown to fight cancer.

Leafy Greens – their low calorie count will help shrink your waistline.

Quinoa – a lean whole grain than contains 5 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein per half cup.
