Green tea

Green tea is a helpful belly-fat-fighting food, as the catechins in the green tea have been shown to stimulate fat burning in the body, particularly in the belly region.

Apples, dark chocolate and guavas are also high in catechins – in case you’re not a green tea fan. (Just don’t eat four slabs of dark chocolate now – it still adds to your overall calories!)

Whole-grain bread

Yes! Bread can be good for you. If you want to lose belly fat then you really want to up your fibre intake.

To get that right you’ll need some whole grains. So why not start your day with a slice or two of whole grain toast with nut butter, baked beans, tofu or scrambled eggs on it? Do it!
