Hey Empyreans, Carl here and today I wanted to share the foods that help you lose belly fat. Before we start, it is important that we understand that there is no such thing as spot treatment when it comes to burning body fat. Fat melts evenly across your body from the outside in, starting at your extremities and ending right in the center of your body or your belly button to be exact.
Your mindset has to gear for a marathon, not a sprint. This won't happen overnight and that's out of your control but what you do have full control of is your mindset and the foods you eat to help accelerate this process.
Humans were designed to drink water and consume meats, fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and natural grains. When we begin to eat foods that were designed for our species to eat, your body will not only know how to use those nutrients to burn fat but it will also create a strong foundation from where health and fitness can grow.
The main point to understand here is to stop eating like Trainer Joe or @miss6pack_fitness and start eating like a human being.
Meats give your body the protein it needs to regenerate and build muscle. Meats are the most protein-dense foods humans can consume. They help you feel satisfied after meals and can naturally burn more calories during digestion because of its dense make up.
Examples of these foods could be beef (cow), chicken, fish, pork (pig), eggs and game. #allnatty #natural
Vegetables provide your body with all of your micro nutrients it needs to live a long life and its high- fiber, low-carb content make it the smartest addition to any meal. Its natural fiber and abundance of micro nutrients satisfy your body on a cellular level controlling "overeating" and food "cravings".
Some examples of vegetables could be lettuce, tomato, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, celery and carrots. #veggies
Healthy Fats are the premium of all nutrients because they provide the energy to sustain life and should also be present at every meal.. They provide the most energy per gram and help burn "sticky"fat that is usually found in the arteries, muscle and belly.
Some examples of healthy fats are nuts or nut butters (almond, peanut, cashews), oils (avocado, olive, hemp, flax seed) and seeds (chia, flax, hemp, sunflower, pumpkin). #fats
Fruits provide your body with "quick" energy for these foods are easily absorbed and cause a rapid spike in blood sugar. Fruits are best utilized for activities that are high-effort and short lasting like weightlifting or sprinting.
Some different examples of fruits could be apples, oranges, berries and grapes.
Natural Grains provide your body with "slow" energy for these foods are slowly absorbed and raise your blood sugar levels are a longer period of time. Natural grains are best utilized for activities that are low-effort and long lasting like biking or running a marathon.
Examples of natural grains could be the organic version of granola and oats.
And last but definitely not least, WATER! Water is the element of growth and most importantly the transport system that quickly delivers all of these nutrients throughout your body!
Water also keeps you hydrated, aids digestion and speeds your metabolism. Studies have shown that consuming half your bodyweight in ounces of water everyday is the minimum requirement for adequate hydration and bodily function. #water
