Bonus: Belly-Blasting Meals
Breakfast: High-Fiber Cereal
Start your day with a bowl of high-fiber cereal. Insoluble fiber absorbs water and expands to fill you up, so you feel satisfied without over-eating. Add a handful of blueberries for an antioxidant boost – the polyphenols help to block the formation of new fat cells.
Lunch: Add Sauerkraut
Add some extra flavor to your turkey sandwich or simply eat it as a side. Sauerkraut contains good bacteria that enhance digestion and reduces belly inflammation.
Dinner: Make Miso Soup Your Appetizer
Having a bowl of miso soup can help flatten your belly. It’s rich in vitamin B12, which is a power player when it comes to metabolizing fats and carbohydrates. Broth-based soups are a good energy-dense food – which means you’ll get more food for less calories. Leading with soup will fill up your stomach before you dine, so you’re less likely to overindulge on the main course. Bonus: You can eat your leftovers for lunch the next day.
