Delicious Summer Flat Belly Foods to Shrink Your Waistline

by | Aug 16, 2017 | Fantastic Food | 0 comments

Summertime is the perfect time to slim down your waistline because there are so many fresh and delicious summer flat belly foods to enjoy and they’re all great for your nutrition and calorie count. Head to a local farmer’s market and there are very few items among the produce that should be considered off limits or even something you should eat in only limited amounts.

Whether you grow fruits and veggies in your garden or buy them at the supermarket, the hot weather and the fact that the products are more locally grown makes them taste phenomenal. If there’s any time of year that you’re going to find it easy to get enough servings of fruits and vegetables into your diet, this is it.

That said, even among all the great fresh fruit out there, there are some top performers that truly stand out from among the rest as summer flat belly foods. These won’t do the work for you, but they’ll certainly support the other efforts you’ve been making to reach your goal. Consider some of these fantastic summer fruits and veggies to add to your next meal:

• Tomatoes – These simple fruits are so common that we often don’t think about them very much. That said, aside from their gorgeous flavor, they are also high in fiber without containing many calories. You can practically eat as many tomatoes as you want without having a negative impact on your weight.

• Basil – This fragrant, flavorful herb is a stunning addition to many dishes, including those made with those delicious tomatoes mentioned earlier. These herbs are also known to help maintain blood sugar levels, which can help you to keep a steady amount of energy without spikes and crashes.

• Blueberries – These delicious little gems are packed with so much nutrition that many people consider them to be superfoods. They’re very high in fiber as well as antioxidants, which are both great for supporting a healthy weight loss strategy. Moreover, their tart sweetness can help to satisfy that need for something sweet. It makes them a wonderful addition to a breakfast or dessert.

• Honeydew melon – Spectacularly sweet and juicy, honeydew melon gives you nearly your entire daily recommended dose of vitamin C in only one cup of fruit. Vitamin C is fantastic for both health overall and for weight loss, so summer flat belly foods like honeydew can not only make you feel more full from all the fiber it contains, but it can also give you weight loss friendly nutrition.

What is Nutritional Psychology? Can It Help Weight Control?

Nutritional psychology is a subject I stumbled upon on social media – of all places – and that sent me into a massive online rabbit hole to better understand what it’s all about. Keeping in mind that even with all my best googling, I’m still eons from becoming an expert, I still thought this topic was fascinating enough that I wanted to share it.

Daily Sugary Drinks of All Kinds Lower Your Life Expectancy

I just read about the scariest study that now says that drinking sugary drinks on a daily basis can actually shorten your life.  The horrifying thing about it is that I have always joked that a certain giant pop or gas station slushy or other syrup-based beverage was likely cutting a day off my life.

The 2021 Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen Lists for Fruits and Vegetables

A couple of weeks ago, I talked about research suggesting organic foods might help prevent weight gain, so this week seemed like a natural jump into the 2021 Dirty Dozen list.  The reason is that while I’m taking organic foods far more seriously as a part of my shopping list, I wanted to know if I should just get some organics or try to eat only organics.
