How to Lose Baby Belly Fat Fast-9 Tips on How to Choose Fat Burning Foods and Avoid Fat Storing Foods

May 13, 2012

Brian Tracy, author of “Maximum Achievement” says this: “Lack of training is the cause of all failures.” 

For those of you ladies who are seeking how to lose baby belly fat fast, this is a great quote to keep in mind. If you are committed to losing the baby belly, then there will be no such thing as “winging” your nutrition plan. You will need to carefully plan so that you will choose those foods that burn the fat and avoid those that store as fat.  Fail to do this and you will not achieve your weight and fat loss goals. Here are tips you can follow which will help keep you on track.

Tip #1: Everything you eat will hamper or help you. Author Tom Venuto of “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscles” says that everything counts and there is no such thing as “neutral” food. You literally will become what you eat. So, be extremely careful what you put into your body every day.

Tip #2: Grade your food choices. Keep in mind that the quality of the food you eat ranges from very poor, to poor, to fair, to good, and to excellent. As someone looking to lose the belly fat, your goal should always be to make the best food choice based on the current circumstances. Sure, sometimes you may not be able to eat the best food possible, but this doesn’t mean you have to eat the worst. If you plan, most of the time you can consume high quality foods.

Tip #3: Choose to eat metabolism boosting foods. These are foods such as lean proteins and natural, fiber containing complex carbohydrates.  Complex carbs include fibrous vegetables, whole grains, yams, beans, brown rice, and oatmeal.

Tip #4: Avoid fat producing foods. The types that increase fat storage include high fat foods, refined carbohydrates, and alcohol.

Tip #5: Avoid the two food combinations you should never, ever eat if you want to lose the baby belly fat and fat in general. Curious as to what they are? Well, one is the fat and sugar combination. You know things like donuts, peanut butter cups, ice cream, fettuccini Alfredo, etc. Tom Venuto says if you eat this combination, you will gain body fat at a terribly high rate.  You literally won’t know what hit you! The second worst is sugar and alcohol.  All your hard efforts will be lost if you indulge in these two food combinations. 

Tip #6: Choose foods that nutrient dense. This means, don’t get so focused on calories that you are not paying attention to whether your calories and “nutrient dense.” Food that is in its natural state is the ones that are the most nutrient dense.

Tip #7: Avoid the empty calories of junk food. These foods have little or no nutritional value.  Ladies, don’t expect to eat junk food and get good results!

Tip #8:  Never, ever eat the top twelve worst junk and fat storing foods, or “The Dirty Dozen” as Tom calls them. Here’s the list of them:

-Ice Cream

-Fried foods

-Donuts and pastries

-Candy, chocolate, and sweets

-Soda

-Fruit drinks and other sweet beverages

-Potato chips

-Bacon and sausage

-White bread

-Hot dogs, fast food burgers

-Cookies

-Sugary breakfast cereals

Some of you are in agony right now just looking at this list! The good news is that there are replacements out there which you will love. For example, instead of eating French fries, eat a baked potato. Instead of eating ice cream, eat low-fat, non fat, or sugar free frozen yogurt or fruit sorbet. Yep, there are lots of good substitutes out there!

Tip #9: Do eat the “Terrific Twelve”. These are foods which should be part of your daily nutrition plan and include:

-Oatmeal and other whole grain cereals like millet, barley, and quinoa

-Yams or sweet potatoes

-Potatoes

-Brown Rice

-100% Whole wheat bread and other 100% whole grain products

-Vegetables

-Fresh fruit

-Low fat and non fat dairy products

-Egg whites or egg beaters

-Chicken or Turkey breast

-Lean red meat

-Fish and shellfish

Now for me, some of these foods I don’t eat because I am vegetarian heading towards vegan. For the rest of you ladies out there though, these foods will greatly help you lose the baby belly.

Now that you have read this article, I hope your question about how to lose baby belly fat fast have been answered. Follow the above guidelines, stick with your plan, and you won’t go wrong.  Most of all, remember this:
