It is pertinent to know that in a mission to lose weight and get a flat stomach, knowing what to eat is not all that you should know and practice but you can be rest assured that half of the battle can be won if only you get what goes into your belly right. Like I said, you must not depend wholly on this food to lose weight and get your desired result of trim appearance but you must always be ready to do exercise to support it so that you get a quicker result from your weightloss goal. For those people with sedative types of job, always take your time to walk around once in a while and never skip your lunch period for anything, try to take a walk to get something to fill your belly. It is better to eat four times a day in bits than to eat massively at once, it affects proper metabolism in your body and thereby causing you to gain more instead of losing weight.

What this means is that, you can get the best out of your crunches with almonds for a better muscle contraction. Almonds are easy to carry around as you don’t need to refrigerate or prepare to enjoy, you can even keep almonds in your desk at work.

I know you are probably thinking of your Smartphone now? Well, it’s not your blackberry phone and if you have ever heard of strawberries and blueberries then you will know that they are filled with lots of outstanding health benefits. However, blackberries have got a lot of press attention lately for their health benefits, as a cup of blackberries contain more fiber than blueberries or strawberries. Blackberries also contain about 2 grams of protein per serving. You can combine blackberries with salad and you can also take it with fresh yogurt for better result on weight loss.
If you really want to get rid of that belly fat and keep up your general body weight, you may want to add peanut butter to the list of foods to be taken serious.
