Studies have linked excess belly fat to high blood pressure, heart disease and even premature death, yet millions of Americans remain overweight, packing on pounds and inches each year. (1) While getting adequate exercise is certainly a key component in keeping belly fat at bay, there are dietary changes that you could — and should — be making to help hit fatty deposits with a one-two punch. Here are the top five foods to eat to help get rid of excess belly fat:
Cabbage, kale, broccoli and other cruciferous veggies
These vegetables contain natural chemicals called phytonutrients — specifically, indole-3-carbinol, or I3C. This particular phytonutrient helps counteract the effects of xenoestrogens, which essentially are chemicals that we consume that act like estrogen. Xenoestrogens derive from a wide variety of sources, including plastics, air pollutants, pesticides, herbicides — even meat from animals that have consumed hormones as part of their “fattening-up” diets.
