If you are tired of belly fat, there are a few steps that can be taken to get rid of the bulge. Here are seven foods that burn stomach fat.

Oatmeal
Eating oatmeal for breakfast will provide your body with high amounts of fiber, which reduces the chance of low blood sugar levels. Starting your day out with whole grain oatmeal will help you to avoid the mid-morning snacking. You will also be getting protein and other vitamins and minerals that help with weight loss.

Vegetables
Raw vegetables are a great source of fiber and antioxidants and eating vegetables will fill your stomach without increasing your caloric intake. Eating a variety of vegetables (especially leafy greens) will provide your body with essential nutrients including calcium, protein, magnesium, iron, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin B — just to name a few.

Lean Meat
Lean protein is essential on any weight loss diet, and meat is a good source of protein. Avoid processed meats, and focus on eating natural, organic white meat such as chicken and fish.

Whole Grains
Replacing white flour foods with whole grain foods will increase the nutrients that you are getting from your food. Whole grains provide your body with fiber, folic acid, vitamin E, and magnesium, all of which aid in the battle of the belly bulge.

Eggs
Increasing your protein intake is an easy way to burn stomach fat, and eggs have a high amount of protein. Eggs also provide your body with other nutrients, such as vitamin B12 which helps to release fat cells.

Olive Oil
Healthy fats are an essential part of burning stomach fat, and olive oil provides your body with the good kind of fat called “monounsaturated fat.” Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over your vegetables and salad and it will add a great flavor and burn fat at the same time.

Nuts
Nuts are another source of good fats, although you need to be careful not to go overboard with your nut consumption because they are high in calories. Eating nuts will provide you with fat-burning protein as well as fiber, vitamins and minerals.

You really got it right, eating the right foods can help burn tummy fat. Oatmeal and whole-grains, nuts and veggies are wonderful because they are rich in fiber, which promotes weight loss. Fiber also makes you feel full easily, thereby helping you eat less and the less amount of food you eat, the more weight you lose especially in your stomach area.
