It’s not just about working out, but eating healthy. Here are 12 belly-fat-fighting superstars…

1. Berries

Antioxidants can improve blood flow, delivering more oxygen to muscles, so ab revealing cardio is easier.

2. Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are packed with B vitamins and vitamin E, and are great for curbing hunger.

3. Avocados

Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acid), which are healthy fats.

4. Almonds

Almonds are a great source of vegetable protein and fiber.

5. Dark Chocolate

Chocolate protects against heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes.

6. Natural Peanut Butter

Peanut butter contains the antioxidant vitamin E, bone-building magnesium, muscle-friendly potassium, and immunity-boosting vitamin B6.

7. Green Tea

Three cups daily may boost your metabolism, and the compound ECGC makes it easier to burn fat.

8. Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed oil is the best plant source of omega-3 fatty acids.

9. Whole Grains

Foods like oatmeal and brown rice, fill you up, keep your insulin levels low, and may shrink fat cells.

10. Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts contain fiber, which helps with digestion.

11. Olive Oil

Olive oil contains MUFA, which lowers “bad” LDL cholesterol without affecting “good” HDL cholesterol.

12. Pistachios

Pistachios contain lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that protect against age-related macular degeneration.
