SHOULD YOU AVOID THESE 10 FOODS?
In this post, I’m going to show which 10 foods to avoid to lose stomach fat and get a flatter looking tummy!
WHY TUMMY FAT?
Did you know that tummy fat is linked more closely with excess inflammation in the body (creating an environment that is more likely to lead to diseases) than any other kind of body fat?
When I was overweight, I know that I didn’t feel as confident or comfortable in clothes as I do now – I also felt very self conscious about my stomach area and so I didn’t feel good wearing a bikini or jeans… or even a t-shirt that wasn’t loose fitting.
Being overweight and having an excess amount of tummy fat has not only been linked to sickness & disease in the body, it can also be something that makes us feel uncomfortable in clothes and less confident.
WHAT FOODS + WHY?
I know that a lot of women don’t know what foods to eat and which foods to avoid to lose weight (to get a more toned stomach) – and so I wanted to share my top 10 list of foods to avoid for a flatter tummy and then give some examples of healthier alternatives or realistic portion sizes.
I cut out or cut down on all of these foods while I was trying to lose weight and get flatter, more toned abs. Some of these foods are healthy (but are high in calories) and should be eaten mindfully (realistic serving sizes) while others are just plain unhealthy and should be avoided if possible.
