1st of 3 Proven Flat Belly Foods

Further to my blog on Stress and Belly fat, from Prevention Magazine, here is the first of 3 Proven Flat Belly Foods that they recommend.
Whole Grains: In a Pennsylvania State University study, dieters who ate whole grains, shed more than twice as much ab fat as those that didn't eat them. Whole Grains reduce production of insulin, a hormone that encourages fat storage, which might make it easier to lose belly fat.
Instead of Refined Cereal - try - Whole grain cereal or oatmeal
Instead of White bread - try - Whole wheat bread
Instead of White pasta - try - Whole wheat pasta
Instead of White rice - try - Brown rice
Try this from my kitchen: put a half cup of rolled oats into a cup and a half of water and start to boil, as it cooks pour in a 1/2 cup of whole grain cereal such as Sunny Boy cereal. It cooks quickly, when thickened pour into your bowl and add some milk. It tastes really good, but if you like it sweeter try some maple syrup for flavor. Believe me you won't be hungry for hours.
