7 foods to eat if you want a smaller waist

Get and maintain a snatched waistline by adding these foods to your diet.

The type of fat around your belly area is very stubborn. There is a higher amount of fat cells that don’t respond very easily to the fat break-down process around that area thus the prolonged struggle to get rid of it.

While the Abs workouts and waist trainers give desired results, a proper diet is just as important in achieving a tinier waist.

Here are 8 foods to eat for a smaller waist.

1.Eggs

Eggs is one of the greatest protein foods. The protein and fat found in the eggs helps someone to stay full for a longer period of time.

2.Yoghurt

Yoghurt also helps with bloating, constipation and gas which makes your stomach appear flatter.

3.Berries

Berries contain fiber which helps to trap food particles and transfer them out of the body system before full digestion takes place.

Chillis contain a compound known as capsaicin which helps to increase satisfaction and decrease consumption of calories.

Leafy greens such as sukuma wiki and spinach are low in calories and contain calcium which is great for muscle contraction.

7.Avocado

Avocados contain the good fats that people are supposed to take. They are high in omega 3 and 6 which help in burning energy by regulating how quickly glucose enters the cells.
