10 foods that will help you kill belly fat fast

Foods that kill belly fat: Let’s face it, ladies, we all want a flat stomach and men want washboard abs. A flat stomach is not only a sign of how healthy we are but it also shows that we take care of ourselves. The weight loss industry is currently booming and making hundreds of millions of dollars every year.

Every day we hear about breakthrough diets or miracle weight loss products that cost you thousands of dollars. I bet you’ve probably heard of the waist trainer. It looks like a corset that you wear underneath your clothes to give the illusion that you have a flat stomach.

And it’s not only women who wear it, men too squeeze themselves into these waist trainers. There’s a lot of debate as to whether or not waist trainers are bad for you and if they actually work. In my opinion, they work… temporarily. I mean, if you want to look great in a specific dress but you feel your stomach isn’t flat enough, you can squeeze yourself into a waist trainer to suck in those extra inches, but other than that, I don’t think it produces permanent results.

In fact, some experts believe wearing it for prolonged periods is harmful to your health. I’m a strong believer in getting a flat stomach the proven way…through diet and exercise. Stop wasting money on weight loss pills. If you want to invest money in weight loss products, how about joining a gym or buying yourself a treadmill? With that said,

here’s a list of ten foods that burn belly fat fast.

10. Oatmeal

Do you know why you always crave that unhealthy sugary or salt-filled snack in the morning? It’s because you missed breakfast, you didn’t have enough breakfast or your sugar levels dropped. One way to avoid that morning snack attack is to eat oatmeal for breakfast.

Oatmeal is rich in fibre and it takes longer to digest, so you feel full in the morning and your cravings for those chocolate doughnuts becomes non-existent. When choosing oatmeal, don’t choose the sweetened kind. Choose the one without added sugars or flavours and sweeten it with berries or banana slices.

9. Nuts and Seeds

Flax seeds, pistachios, walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds and any other nuts or seeds you can think of all help you to keep your tummy slim by keeping it full. Not only that but they are full of healthy oils and minerals. Purdue University did a study and found that people who ate nuts felt full longer than those who ate rice cakes.

Experts recommend that you eat 24 almonds every day to satisfy your hunger pangs. This way, you won’t overload on the calories. And by the way, stay away from the salted seeds and nuts. They are high in sodium and that’s not good for your blood pressure.

8. Meat

Not just any type of meat…white meat or lean meat is the best type of meat to keep the fat away from your belly. Free-range chicken, fish and grass-fed beef are scientifically proven to burn fat. In fact, there’s a study that showed grass-fed beef contains natural CLA (conjugated linoleic acid).

And don’t bother trying to take CLA supplements because they are not the same as the naturally occurring one. Besides, the supplement has more side effects than it has benefits. What’s fascinating about eating proteins is that your body will burn 30% of its calories after eating protein-rich foods.

7. Protein Powder

Protein powder isn’t just for people who want to bulk up in the gym…you too can benefit from it. Protein powder contains amino acids that build muscle and burn fat. Add two spoonfuls of the powder to your smoothie for a belly fat burning drink.

And the good thing about protein powder is that it’s easily available in health food stores. By the way, when adding protein powder to your smoothie, make sure it’s a healthy smoothie. Not one of those sugary types or chocolate smoothies. You can make your own smoothie by blending unsweetened yoghurt, fruits and low-fat milk.

6. Oils

I know this sounds wrong considering you are trying to burn belly fat. Why would you need oil? Isn’t it full of calories? The kinds of oils I’m talking about contain useful calories and not empty calories. Oils like coconut oil, canola oil and olive oil can actually help your body burn fat.

They do this by helping your body keep cholesterol levels at a minimum and they satisfy your cravings so you don’t end up eating unnecessary calories. Unhealthy oils are the hydrogenated ones loaded with saturated and trans fats.

5. Omelets

Eggs are loaded with plenty of fat burning protein, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, phosphorus, iron, calcium, choline, folate and essential vitamins. Eggs digest slowly so you will feel full for a long time, reducing your chances of looking for a snack. You should also know that eggs from free-range chickens contain more nutrients.

Louisiana State University did their own research and found that people who had eggs for breakfast lost more weight than those who ate bagels. But before you start cooking up omelettes for breakfast, talk to your doctor about your cholesterol levels. They might be too high.

4. Legumes

Lima beans, navy beans and black beans are rich in fibre, which helps your body get rid of toxic waste. Moreover, they are low in calories and packed with proteins that will help you lose weight and tone up. Start making dishes with beans and you will start to notice your metabolism improve.

So once a week, instead of eating meat, try eating a bean burrito. Refried beans are also not a great option because they are high in saturated fat. Choose other varieties like pinto or black beans.

3. Green Veggies

Kale, broccoli, spinach, arugula and romaine are all packed with essential vitamins and minerals and have very few calories. Broccoli and spinach are especially loaded with fibre, which helps speed up your metabolism and reduces constipation.

Eating a salad before a meal will make you feel a little fuller so you will only serve yourself small portions of food. I should also mention that iceberg lettuce has almost no fibre at all, so this is not a really good choice for green veggies.

2. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter prevents belly bloat by keeping the digestive system on track thanks to one key ingredient known as niacin. Just like nuts and seeds, peanut butter keeps you full for long so you are less likely to reach out for a quick unhealthy snack in between meals.

However, since peanut butter has a lot of fat, you should limit your portion size. Eating too much peanut butter can increase the level of cholesterol in your body. Two tablespoons a day is enough. And when you go shopping, make sure you choose all natural peanut butter and avoid those that contain added sugar.

1. Green Tea

Green tea is packed with anti-oxidants, which are believed to speed up your metabolism and burn fat. According to research done by Swiss researchers, drinking green tea burns 266 calories more than if you drank regular tea. Also, in a report written by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, they found that green tea extract boosted daytime metabolism.

While shopping for green tea, avoid purchasing the bottled tea because it has been processed and as a result, it doesn’t have a lot of nutrients. You can instead steep a tea bag in one cup of water and drink it while it’s hot or add ice cubes to make iced tea. It’s recommended that you drink four cups daily.

“Couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship” – Survey

A new survey has revealed that couples who sleep naked have a happier relationship.

The study from Cotton USA asked couples what they slept in at bedtime and then asked them to rate how happy they were in their relationship.

According to the results, 57 percent of those who slept in the nude said they felt happy, compared to 48 percent of pyjamas wearers, 43 percent of nightie wearers and a mere 38 percent of people who wore pants, bum shorts, etc.

Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe of Cotton USA said that one of the leading factors for this was that the nakedness encouraged intimacy and openness, thanks to the skin-on-skin contact and the feeling of soft bedding.

Guys! Ths is what happens to the pen*s as you get older, according to science

Our bodies change with age, but how about the most private parts? What happens to Pen.!s when it ages? Let’s get some clear answers.

So, guys, what can you expect to happen to your Pen.!s when you grow older? These clues will prepare you for the inevitable changes.

How Pen.!s changes with age?

Length

When most men are born, their Pen.!ses reach only 4 cm in length! The average size ranges between 16 and 23 cm. Does it decrease in size, when you grow old? Not exactly, but things change. For instance, if you gain much weight, your Pen.!s looks shorter. The fat is located in the lower part of your belly and covers up part of the Pen.!s shaft. However, in your 60s or 70s the Pen.!s can actually a bit shrink in size by some 2-3 cm.

Testicle size

After 40 they decrease by 1 third of their size. Healthy younger men have them around 3 cm in size, while the older guys may have only 2 cm size balls.

Working condition

The performance changes, too. When you turn 40, your S3@.x:’ual activity and the amount of male hormones in the body decreases. In the youth a healthy man may have S3@.x:’ several times a day, in the later age erectile dysfunction may change things for worse. The muscles weaken and the vessels get clogged. It also contributes to weaker erection. So, having S3@.x:’ few times a week is great, when you age.

Enjoyment

It greatly depends on the sensitivity of your male organ. Unfortunately with age it decreases a bit, but it’s good for those guys, who come too fast. Now they have more chances to gain control and boost the duration of their performance in bed.

Looks

You start losing your head hair with the age, but that’s not it. Men also lose their pubic hair and their Pen.!ses change the color a bit.

Time spares no one, so enjoy your S3@.x:’ life in the  young age, but do not worry, over 80 percent of men maintain their male organs in great working condition even being seniors.

Guys beware! It is dangerous to have s*x in these 4 situations

Is S3@.x:’ always good? There are times when you should stay away from it, and every man should know the reasons not to get busy! This list may surprise you.

List of 4 reasons why not to have S3@.x:’:

Besides the obvious thing – not being the husband of the lady you plan to enjoy, there are other reasons to keep away from intimacy. Here they are.

1. At your bachelor’s party

party

You are a groom and your friends bring in some girls to have fun at your last bachelor’s night out. It’s the worst possible idea to get busy with a stripper or some strange girl. You have picked that woman to be your wife for a reason. Keep it in mind, when other ladies offer fun to you. You do not want to start your married life with cheating. What you sow, you will reap!

2. Alcohol

alcohol

Either you or she or both of you are drunk. How much is too much? 3 to 5 drinks can make you less wise in your decisions and less cautious. Consuming alcohol, you become more open for risky things, such as unprotected S3@.x:’. And you put yourself and the other person in danger of getting SDTs (HIV and other love bugs) or impregnating the woman.

Such a situation is highly undesirable. So, if you drink too much, make a rule to abstain from S3@.x:’ with a new girlfriend.

3. At her parents’ house

That’s not the best location for the love games. They may return home unexpectedly. Or if they are home, they may enter her room any time and catch you at it. It’s a very embarrassing situation.

4. When you wish to marry her

She is a V!rg!n, and you have made up your mind to marry her. But you want her so and think: what if we do it now? Why wait for the wedding night? Stop! You are going to ruin it all. Waiting does not kill anyone. Just set the date and you won’t regret it. As waiting double the pleasure on the first night!

These reasons should stop you and make you think. S3@.x:’ is not always a good idea, and it can be dangerous and has the power to ruin your life when done at the wrong time and with the wrong person.
