The #1 Tip to Getting Rid of Belly Fat
Determined to get rid of those holiday pounds? Focus on healthy eating not exercise. Diet is 90 percent of your weight loss success. In fact, it matters more than how much time you spend in the gym. I recommend heading to the produce department to target that belly fat.
The number one change everybody should be making is focusing on vegetables. The more vegetables you eat, it flips your hunger switch off and keeps you feeling full. The secret is to lower blood sugar and vegetables do that best because of the fiber they contain. Get creative—swap out bread and wraps for lettuce.
Wrap your tuna sandwiches and your turkey in lettuce instead of bread. There is a new veggie spaghetti out there, so get rid of your pasta carbs and replace them with vegetable spaghetti.
Celery is one of the best foods for weight loss because it has a thermic effect. It heats up your metabolism so it takes you more time to digest the food than there are calories in the food. You end up in a negative calorie deficit, which is what you want with weight loss.
Fruit? Stick to one to two servings per day of green apples, grapefruit or berries. Those fruits have the lowest sugar content. They also have the highest fiber content, and fiber blunts blood sugar. They are easy to portion control, and they are the most nutritious.
Protein of choice—Seafood. The lighter and whiter the fish, the better for your metabolism. Think shrimp, scallops, tilapia, cod, and scrod.
Here is a great recipe from The Metabolism Solution for Tuna Burgers. This recipe takes 10 minutes to make and is the most cost-effective meal you can prepare. Not to mention—it’s Lean and Clean.
(2) 6oz cans of chunk light tuna in water — drained

Combine the ingredients until the mixture is uniform and holds together. Then, form into burgers (size is your choice). Spray a large, non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place burgers into the pan. Cook until golden brown — about 1–2 minutes per side. Serve on a large bed of leafy greens.
