Naturopathic doctor and author of The 10-Day Belly Slimdown Kellyann Petrucci believes that the key to losing your belly fat is to maintain a healthy gut. When your gut is unbalanced and inflamed it can cause hormonal imbalances that lead to uncontrollable cravings which can lead to gain fat around your stomach in the first place.
Part of the 10-Day Belly Slimdown plan is making sure you are eating the right foods that will help you burn fat. While bone broth is a morning staple on this plan, Petrucci says that lunch and dinner should be made up of "slim-gestion" foods -- foods that help you slim down because they are good for your body and will heal your digestive system. Below is a grocery list of all the approved "slim-gestion" foods from Petrucci's book. Use this list when grocery shopping and incorporate these foods into your 10-day eating plan for the best results.
