Bye bye love handles

Foods to get rid of belly fat(BlackDoctor)

Love handles, extra tyre, spare tyre, call them whatever you like. But the truth remains to be one; they suck and nobody likes them.

First and foremost, the extra fat around your waistline is unhealthy. Secondly, your outfits fit better and your figure comes out better when you have no love handles. Even though the second reason may not be convincing enough to make you want to melt your love handles, the first one should.

The good thing is that food alone can help melt away your handles leaving you with the waistline of your dreams. How cool, huh?

How about you try eating these foods and say bye bye to your spare tyres:

1. Eggs

Eggs are enriched with loads of nutrients that your body needs and they are calorie free. Apart from that, eggs help you to stay full for longer hence reducing the amount of food you eat.

2. Berries

Lucky you if you got a sweet tooth. Berries are loaded with fiber and antioxidants that help in reducing belly fat. When you crave candy, grab a berry instead.

3. Sweet potatoes

The fiber in sweet potatoes takes time to digest and you will thus stay longer without eating more food. Which is a good thing, right? Plus there are also rich in other nutrients that will improve your health.

Oatmeal for breakfast is a healthy choice but if you are looking forward to losing your extra tyres, go for oat bran. It has more fiber and protein compared to oatmeal.
