With the sun burning up the sidewalk, you're probably leaping at the chance to head to the beach. But if the sight of a bikini causes your heart to beat furiously in your chest, you're not alone. We all want healthier, trimmer bodies, and weight loss is the first step toward achieving your goals. Eat your way to the flat abs of your dreams with these tasty choices.
1. Chocolate milk. It may seem unlikely, but chocolate milk is a great way to build up muscle tissue around your abdomen. On its own, milk can deliver a powerful shot of protein and vitamin B12 to your body, while the carbohydrates in chocolate can give you the strength to refuel after a grueling workout.
2. Avocado. When blood sugar spikes, it can send triggers throughout your body to begin holding onto fat, reports Self Magazine, leading to stubborn weight gain in unflattering areas. But avocados, which contain monounsaturated fats, can prevent this from happening by evening out your blood sugar levels. One avocado has more than one-third of the recommended daily value of vitamin C and eating it is a great way to slim your midsection.
While you're busy melting off the extra pudge, you can get help tightening up with a product like Bliss Fat Girl Slim, which can help reduce the appearance of cellulite by stimulating circulation around your waist.
