Five Best Foods for Burning Belly Fat

A list of the five best foods to eat when on a diet to lose belly fat.

With the marathon of holiday eating behind us, many people are searching for the best foods that cause you to burn belly fat fast in order to shed the extra pounds in time for bathing suit season. Whether your New Year's Resolution is to finally drop that extra weight or you are already working on getting that bikini body back, knowing what foods to eat is an important part of your weight loss regime. Like any attempt to shed pounds, exercise is important and should always accompany a diet regimen. However, in addition to exercise, the following foods will help you burn extra belly fat and shed pounds in a snap.

Avocado - There is a sugar present in avocados called mannoheptulose. This sugar not only lowers your body's insulin level, but it prevents the body from storing fat, helping you lose weight.

Oatmeal - Even though it is a carbohydrate, natural oatmeal is very high in fiber, which helps you lose weight. Oatmeal also gives you a boost of energy while helping you feel full for a long time. Eating oatmeal one to two hours before a work out can help you work harder and longer, helping you burn away fat.

Green Olives - While both green and black olives, in moderation, make an excellent diet food, green olives are known to help burn away belly fat in particular. Snack on green olives or green olive tapenade to lose weight in this problem area.

Raw Nuts - Not only do raw nuts help stave off your appetite, but they contain protein and give you an extra boost of energy. In addition, raw nuts contain Omega 3's that causes fat to burn at a faster rate. However, stay away from salted or roasted nuts because many of their nutrients are lost in the cooking process.

Green Tea - While technically a drink, green tea offers many health benefits for those looking to lose weight. With no sugar added, it has negative calories, meaning your body burns more calories processing the tea than the tea itself possesses. In addition, it also helps boost your metabolism, helping you burn more calories from the other foods you eat. Tea is also said to help reduce cravings that can creep up on you during a diet.
