So you want to lose stomach fat? And you want to lose it fast. Well here’s an easy and simple way to accelerate your fat loss. . .
Eat a salad every day for lunch.
Salad For Fat Loss…
I know it’s not rocket science, and you may have even heard it before, but having a salad for lunch every day has proven effective for myself and my clients.
But let’s be clear about this salad… First make your base a green leafy vegetable. My personal preference is raw spinach. But your “spring mix” variety of lettuce works fine. As does romaine. As does kale if you are so inclined. I recommend you stay away from iceberg, not because it will hinder your simple diet plan, but because there are so many better choices from a nutrient standpoint.
Next add plenty of other vegetables. My personal favorites are asparagus, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, and red peppers. But really any raw vegetables of your liking will do. Fruit can also bring a nice taste twist to the mix. I’ll sometimes include a little pineapple, sliced apples, or black berries in my salad.
To complete the salad, add a protein source. Grilled chicken and steak are what I use most often. But lean pork, hard boiled eggs, fish, or even shrimp could also work. You may also want to add some nuts (I like slivered almonds) or even some raw sunflower or pumpkin seeds to your salad. And of course you’ll want some dressing. . .
The only salad dressing I approve of is homemade balsamic vinaigrette. It’s simple to make and tastes great. Just blend 3 parts extra virgin olive oil with 1 part balsamic vinaigrette and spices of your choice. I make a large batch and store mine at room temperature. I also use it as marinade for chicken and steak.
Other salad dressings should be avoided in my opinion. Either they are too high in calories or full of chemical junk that you don’t want to put into your body. Stick with the homemade stuff and you always know exactly what the ingredients are.
Also steer clear of putting cheese in your salad, skip the croutons, and unless you cooked ’em yourself – forget the bacon bits.
There ya go – a simple change that will easily help you to lose body fat quickly and get a lean stomach..!
