7. SWAP WHITE FOR BROWN

11 Food swaps to lose belly fat

If you’re serious about losing belly fat, then you’ve gotta replace refined grains (white) with whole grains (brown). Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2008 compared obese adults who ate refined grains with those who ate whole grains. After 12 weeks, both groups had lost the same amount of weight, but those who ate whole grains lost double the amount of tummy fat.

Scientists believe this is because whole grains don’t cause the blood sugar spikes after eating that refined grains trigger, which means insulin levels remain lower. Lower insulin levels appear to reduce the size of fat cells in the abdominal area, which basically means less stomach fat. Use brown rice, whole wheat pasta, whole grain bread, whole wheat tortillas and so on.

  1. Sorry i am not trying to be a total jerk i am very intrigued by this website i love it, it is very helpful and useful!! But i was just noticing in this specific section there is a couple things that i was thrown off by and maybe i am being knit picky but when you are saying to swap foods for another i would expect the bad food to be first and the good food to be second, for instance the first item swapping oats for sugary cereals to me sounds like i should be swapping oatmeal for cocoa puffs which i do not think is your intention, the paragraph explanation under the header does coincide with your title but it is still a little offsetting, maybe i am the only one that is thinking this way but i feel it’s a little backwards, also i noticed a typo in the very first sentence of this “swapping your regular sugary cereal for rolled outs…. i think should be oats?? I do apologize i may come off as a little over analytical but i do enjoy this site greatly and i am citing this with good intentions.

  2. Sweet. I always eat old fashion oats for breakfast. not the artificial kind. I always prefer brown rice than white rice, add mix vegetables, tuna, lemon, little soy sauce, and chile. that stuff is yummy, lol.
