How to Trim Stomach Fat Fast
Healthier you: The skinny of fats
By Alicia Hesse
Instead of cutting out all fats to trim down, add some. Just make sure they’re the right ones.
According to talk show host Dr. Oz, exercise helps trim belly fat, and so do certain foods. He suggested dark chocolate that’s 70 percent cocoa or higher, natural peanut butter and guacamole to make your belly “flat vs. fat.”
Going on a completely fat-free diet doesn’t equate to cutting off unwanted fat; instead, it raises health concerns.
Dietary fats are essential for the body to function properly, to get energy and to absorb vitamins such as A, D, E and K.
So you should get to know your monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
MUFAs may lower your total cholesterol levels, help normalize blood clotting and may even benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Foods with MUFAs include olive oil, almond butter, avocado, green and black olives, and nuts such as pistachios.
Include MUFAs in your diet by using olive oil over butter when cooking and on sandwiches instead of mayo. Also explore how versatile peanut butter is. Include it on wheat toast for breakfast, on a banana with peanut butter for lunch, and on chicken with a Thai-inspired, spicy-savory peanut butter sauce for dinner. The key is that the peanut butter has to be natural. You can also make a trail mix with other nuts containing MUFAs such as almonds, pecans and cashews.
Don’t forget to include PUFAs. Evidence shows that PUFAs improve blood cholesterol levels, which can decrease your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. PUFAs, like omega-3 fatty acids, may be beneficial to your heart, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Incorporate PUFAs in your diet with seeds (flax, sesame, sunflower and pumpkin), nuts and fish.
If you’re planning on carving a pumpkin for Halloween, you can always save the seeds and bake them with some olive oil for a blend of MUFAs and PUFAs.
Nuts such as pine and walnuts also contain PUFAs. You can make a pesto sauce with pine nuts, olive oil, basil leaves and garlic.
You can also get omega-3s in cold-water fish such as fresh salmon and tuna. Try lox on a bagel for breakfast, sushi for lunch, or exploring some fish recipes for dinner and dress it any way you like.
The fats to leave out of your diet are saturated and trans fats.
Saturated fat is found in a lot of creams. This includes cream cheese, sour cream, ice cream, coffee creamer and heavy cream used in pasta dishes like fettuccini alfredo sauce. These are foods you should have small amounts of and only on occasion.
Then there’s trans fat, which is most prevalent in processed food and created for packaged foods to increase shelf life.
Check out some of the trans fat levels on the back of the box of cookies or crackers. Trans fat can also be found in fatty animal meat. Go for lean meat or beans for your source of protein.
Also watch out for “reduced fat” labels. What type of fat is reduced, and if it’s lowered, is sugar or sodium increased?
WebMD recommends that for a 2,200 daily calorie intake, most people should get 49 to 86 grams of total fat, 17 grams or less being saturated fat and three grams or less of trans fat. There is also an application atMyPyramid.gov to figure out the right daily calorie intake for you.
