The key to a flat stomach and to reduce belly fat is reducing the fat in your diet. This is very important and the first and foremost steps to a flat belly. Most of the fat you eat, gets stored in your stomach so if you reduce it, you will reduce your belly fat. Fortunately, this can be done with a proper diet including plenty of flat belly veggies! Here is a list of some great veggies that you can incorporate into your diet.
It’s important to remember that you can do all the flat tummy workouts as you want, but without reducing your fat intake and losing the belly fat, your workouts won’t show a huge difference and give you the desired effects. The stomach exercises will develop and tone your stomach muscles, but the belly fat will remain covering over the stomach muscles. So a low fat diet with veggies is important to reach your goal. It’s also one of the fastest ways to flatten a stomach.
All veggies are good for you even though a few may make you temporarily bloat, you still get the nutrient value. Just stay away from the veggies that may make you bloat such as broccoli or cabbage on the nights you want to go out and your wearing a tight dress.
Remember the flat tummy rule is 50% veggies, 25% protein and 25% Carbohydrates for your meals. This flat belly veggies list does not include the veggies that are high in starch, they are under carbohydrates.
Vegetable servings should be 2 cups raw, or 1 cup cooked, unless otherwise stated. A great way to cook vegetables is grilled. Cut up all your desired veggies and onion, put them in a large bowl with a little extra virgin olive oil and store in the refrigerator. This makes it easy to quickly grill the veggies and the veggies absorb some of the olive oil which is good for you. Plus, it’s a quick go to and easy to make meal when your hungry.
