Eat These Vegetables And Have A Six Pack Abs

Updated on June 21, 2010

Losing belly fat will do a world of good to your health because with a big belly, you not only lose your mobility but become prone to be affected by many diseases. In addition to that, if you lose your belly fat, having a six pack abs is also possible which may be your dream-body shape.

Experts have proved that there are a few vegetables that have a terrific capacity to burn your fat, especially your abdominal fat. By eating these vegetables, your body will be able to burn the fat effectively and hence losing the stomach fat becomes absolutely possible.

The problem is day in and day out, many chemicals enter our system through the air we breathe, water we drink and the food we eat. These chemicals spoil our system and this bad effect is known as estrogenic effect. These chemicals have a tendency to increase your belly fat and so, as long as such an environmental problem remains, the risk of having a huge belly also exists.

The toxins that are contained in these chemicals that enter our system are called xenoestrogens and they play havoc with our health because they increase the tendency of the body to retain belly fat. Environmental pollution is getting so worse day by day that it is impossible to escape the onslaught of these xenoestrogens. They have become omnipresent and pervade the environment dangerously. Though we can not do away with them completely, we can reduce their effect to a great extent.

As said earlier, a few wonder-vegetables are there that will bestow this benefit on us. Vegetables like broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, etc. are these wonder-vegetables and they can counter the ill-effects of these xenoestrogens. These vegetables contain certain excellent and special compounds or phytonutrients like indole-3-carbinol or 13C, and these compounds fight the xenoestrogens. When the xenoestrogens are put down in this combat,losing belly fat becomes easy. You can work out and have a six pack abs also.

      Thanks for your comments. Instead of eating all the calories you need at one go, you can split them and eat. This means that instead of a single large meal, you can have five or six smaller meals. But, you must take these smaller meals once every two hours so that you do not starve. This eating routine will improve your metabolism and so, all the calories you consume will get burned. This may help you reduce your belly fat.

      I eat the vegetables you have mentioned, especially since becoming vegan over the last five months or so. I'm a moderate exerciser, and the belly fat, though only a couple of inches, is still there.

      I wonder if there are any vegetables that increase will power!

      Thank you for your thoughts--I learned a little about biochemistry through the read.
