The Principles of the Belly Fat Diet
3 of 5
Eat fat to fight fat.
It takes fat to fight belly fat. Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? But it’s true. However, it’s only true if it’s the good fat. Both good fats and bad fats exist.
Good fats are those that protect your heart, decrease disease risk, and even promote loss of belly fat. The two best sources of fat are monounsaturated fats found in olive oil, nuts, seeds, and avocado and omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, walnuts, and flaxseed.
