Lets get rid of that gut.

If you have ever tried to lose weight, you know just how difficult it is to lose belly fat. Certain foods you eat will greatly contribute to belly fat gain and here is what you need to do to avoid that problem thanks to Eat This.

According to Trista Best, MPH, RD, LD, a registered dietitian, the main reason for people having excessive belly fat is due to their consumption of highly processed foods.

“We literally are what we eat, to an extent. The food and nutrients we take in become a part of us at a cellular level, and the wrong nutrients can cause gas, bloating, weight gain, and other negative outcomes if we aren’t following a balanced diet,” Best said.

“One of the primary causes of belly fat is a diet based largely around processed convenience foods. These can be healthy processed foods or those that aren’t marketing themselves to be healthy in any way,” Best added. “The ultimate reason processed foods make losing belly fat difficult is that they are largely made of refined carbohydrates and sugar.”

If you want to shed the belly fat, you need to avoid refined carbs at all cost. You should try to eat food with “whole carbs” such as natural fruits and vegetables.

“Refined carbohydrates are processed quickly by the body and easily stored as fat. They provide a quick source of energy, but this energy comes in the form of a glucose spike and inevitable crash,” Best explained.

“First, the crash causes the individual to become hungry again soon after eating, regardless of how many calories were consumed,” she said.
