Having a flat and toned belly is a dream for almost every woman. In order to achieve this fast, you need to adopt a waist-whittling diet plan, apart from your daily dose of exercise.

 

Here are some foods that will help shrink your belly quickly while maintaining a healthy metabolism:

  • Beans and legumes – these superfoods help build muscle and burn fat.
  • Almonds – nuts contain filling protein, fiber and vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Eating almonds and other nuts can help reduce cravings.
  • Red peppers – Peppers are also filled with vitamin C, a nutrient needed for fat burning. Studies suggest that the beta carotene and lycopene in pepper can help in losing weight.

 

  • Spinach – Research has found that this green leavy vegetable can help you lose weight by curbing cravings for unhealthy foods - sweet treats and junk food.
  • Apples – Low in calories, but high in hunger-satiating fiber – which help in suppressing food intake. Apples are also packed with vitamins.
