Foods that DO NOT help you reduce abdominal fat (you'll be surprised with some)

To lose abdominal fat and reduce belly inflammation, you should pay close attention to the foods that enter your mouth. Enjoying a healthy weight is an objective that rests on two pillars: exercise and, yes, good nutrition. This means that you will not be able to show a strong abdomen and body, if you only exercise (or vice versa).

In this sense, these are the foods whose consumption you should moderate to feel better in your own body:

Unhealthy fats
According to Reader's Digest, there are three types of fats that are related to inflammation and excess abdominal fat: trans fats, saturated fats and omega-6 fats.

These fats are found in packaged foods and processed meats (trans fats), some sweets (saturated fats) and corn oil, soy and sunflower (omega-6 fat).

Simple carbohydrates
Foods rich in carbohydrates can alter the balance of the intestinal flora and cause inflammation. Bread, cereals, pasta and white rice are some of the foods that contain simple carbohydrates.

However, you should not eliminate them completely from your diet because they contain vitamins and minerals essential for the body. Moderate their consumption, replace them sometimes for their integral versions and take care of the portions is the best thing you can do if you have to lose weight.

Excess fructose
Foods high in fructose can cause gas, bloating and diarrhea. This is found in some fruits such as apples, mangoes and watermelons; Also in certain vegetables such as asparagus and sweet peas.

The excess of fructose facilitates the accumulation of fat. Now, we must not stop consuming these foods, just avoid abuse and consult with a specialist what would be the appropriate amount of their consumption per day in each particular case.

The body takes much longer to digest these foods because of its high fat content. French fries have many calories and it is not easy to eat just one.

According to a study published in The National Center for Biotechnology Information , there is a relationship between the consumption of this food and weight gain. Other research, published on the same site, concluded that potato chips can contribute to a greater weight gain per serving than any other food.

If you want to reduce abdominal fat, the key is to take care of the portions and to eat healthy foods. To relieve belly swelling, look for foods that are easy to digest. And if you have any doubts about the foods you should consume, always consult a specialist.
