Pick Red Fruits

Red fruits such as watermelon, Pink Lady apples, and plums have higher levels of nutrients called flavonoids—particularly anthocyanins, compounds that give red fruits their color, which have been shown to reduce fat-storage genes.

Step Outside

Recent research published in the journal PLOS ONE found that getting direct sunlight exposure between the hours of 8 a.m. and noon reduced your risk of weight gain regardless of activity level, caloric intake, or even age. Researchers believe that the sunlight synchronizes your metabolism and undercuts your fat-storage genes.

Go For Good Fats

Though eating fats seems like a counterintuitive way to shrink your stomach, flat-belly-fats such as olive, canola, avocado, and walnut oils, and nut and seed butters (we like peanut butter, almond butter, and tahini) can help you slim down by helping you stay satiated.

Try To Incorporate Non-Starchy Veggies

In addition to being excellent sources of fiber, protein, and a host of other nutrients, healthy picks such as broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes can help combat fat. In fact, one study found that consuming more non-starchy veggies resulted in an impressive 17% decrease in visceral fat in overweight kids. Although you may be all grown up, it’s safe to assume that adding more veggies can help adults trim their fat, too.

And the longer you sweat, the more quickly you’ll reach your goals! Looking for a healthy way to refuel after your weight room session?

Hide Your Vices

Out of sight, out of mouth? Simply reorganizing your pantry staples could translate into serious calorie savings. A study published in the Journal of Marketing found that people are more likely to overeat small treats from transparent packages than from opaque ones. For this reason, many nutritionists suggest keeping indulgent foods in the pantry on a high shelf so that you’re less apt to mindlessly grab them.

Blend Veggies Into Your Oats

While overnight oats remain a healthy and trendy breakfast, there’s one healthy oatmeal trend that’s also making waves: Zoats! The funny-sounding name actually describes a very straightforward (but delicious) dish made from shredded fiber-filled zucchini, oatmeal, milk, spices and nutrient-packed add-ins such as nuts and fruit.

Use The Half Plate Rule

Fill at least half of your lunch and dinner plate with vegetables. Vegetables are nutrient-dense, high in satiating fiber, and low in calories, making them ideal weight loss tools. By eating the veggie half of your plate before anything else, you will take the edge off your hunger, eat less overall calories, and still feel full and satisfied. Keep eating this way and the pounds will painlessly melt away

Blend A Plant-Based Smoothie

Protein-enriched drinks lend you a monster dose of belly-busting nutrition in a simple yet delicious snack. But most commercial drinks are filled with unpronounceable chemicals that can upset our gut health and cause inflammation and bloat. Not to mention, the high doses of whey used to boost protein levels can amplify the belly-bloating effect. Try vegan protein, which will give you the same fat-burning, hunger-squelching, muscle-building benefits, without the bloat.
