Eating These Metabolism-Boosting Foods Can Actually Help Burn Belly Fat

Everybody want's to get shredded like Cristiano Ronaldo, but very few people actually want to put in the effort. Look, I get it—as we've said before, making changes to your body requires a lot more than just hitting the gym a couple of times a week. It's a lifestyle change, folks!

Unfortunately, a pretty hefty portion of that change (pun-intended) is your diet. Now, we love mainlining pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as much as the next guy, but it's just not a solid way of sustaining good health, let alone any kind of desirable figure. Sure, we know some guys make the Dad Bod work, but by some guys, we mean Leonardo DiCaprio and pretty much only him.


That’s why we’re giving you 10 food options that you should be eating on the regular if getting lean and burning fat is your primary goal—nobody loves a whole lotta jiggle in the middle, remember that! Again, unless you're Leonardo DiCaprio, or well, maybe a seasonal Santa Clause at the local mall.

We suggest that you not only consume these foods, but prepare them yourself! The American Heart Association studied people who ate two homemade meals per day, and found that homemade meals were associated with less weight gain. Additionally, be sure to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate—researchers from the University of Binghamton recently showed that when obese adults drank 500 ml of water half an hour before every meal, they lost almost 10 pounds over 12 weeks. Hm, I'm just going to go ahead and list some more quick facts before you guys dive into the food gallery!
