Have you ever felt that no matter what you eat, your stomach always remains blotted?

Almonds

Almonds with skins are great to help curve your appetite! They help to build muscle and have great belly bursting power.

Beans

White beans in particular are a great source for weight loss. Don't be fooled with all the talk that they give you gas. They are a great source of protein, burn off fat, build muscle and help to regulate your digestion, which in turn minimizes a bloated stomach.

Spinach

Not only does spinach help you to feel full and is a great source of calcium, but there are only 40 calories per cup! Spinach is a superfood loaded with tons of nutrients in a low calorie package. It not only burns fat, but is also good for your skin, hair and bone health, and provides protein, iron, vitamins and minerals.

Avocados

Avocados are a great source of protein! They also provide a good amount of fiber, and are a great way to curb your appetite. In addition, avocados contain monounsaturated fatty acids, which help to burn off that stubborn belly fat, plus they’re delicious. So, why not add these to your meals if you aren’t doing so already? It's a win- win situation!

Grapefruit

Scientific research has proven that eating even half a grapefruit in the morning or before a meal will help you feel fuller longer and speed up your metabolism, which results in weight loss.

Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away? More like an apple a day keeps the fat burning away! The skin on the apple is the most important part for weight loss. It's contains the most fiber as well as ursolic acid, which helps to boost calorie burn.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Not just for cooking, olive oil is amazing for helping to lose those unwanted pounds around your stomach. Extra virgin olive oil helps to slim your waist because it contains monounsaturated fat, which, in turn, burns fat and calories while lowering your cholesterol as a bonus. The best way to use this magic oil is to use three teaspoons of it when cooking your food. Remember, it is a fat, so if you overuse this, it will do the opposite effect—everything in moderation.

Eggs

Not only are eggs a great source of protein, but they also contain vitamin B12, which helps your body to break down fat cells. So, cracking a few eggs and cooking them in the morning will help to curb your hunger throughout the day!

Low-Fat Chocolate Milk

Seriously! Low-fat chocolate milk offers an ideal carb to protein ratio, which helps to build muscle and lose fat. I’ve actually noticed that my gym stocks chocolate milk next to their protein and recovery drinks, so drink up and enjoy!

Whole Grains

These are packed with protein, fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants and trace minerals (iron, zinc, copper and magnesium). This magic grain has also been known to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some forms of cancer.

Garlic

Did you know that garlic is a thermogenic? That means it boosts metabolism, which helps to burn off belly fat. It also maximizes fat burning for energy and detoxicaton. Garlic also helps to boost your immune system and helps to fight cancer! Who knew a small garlic clove could do so much good!

Walnuts

Walnuts contain a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which help to burn off that unwanted fat. However, make sure to eat the all-natural ones. As good as the salted flavored are, they will only contribute to weight gain!

The best part about the foods listed above is that you can find these at any grocery store, and if you are someone on the go all the time, you can just throw these in your bag and you’re out the door. We all know that you have to eat right in order to lose weight, but when you break down how simple the foods can be to help contribute to a flatter tummy, it would be silly to not give it a try!
