With bikini season upon us, our in-house nutritionist Zoe Stirling, recommends trying to incorporate these foods into your meals (along with plenty of exercise) to stave off cravings, burn fat and achieve a flatter stomach!
Oats contain soluble fibre, important for keeping us full and stabilising blood sugar preventing cravings.
Beans are great sources of fibre, protein and low GI carbohydrates, helping to keep you fuller for longer, whilst the protein element in them contain amino acids which are the building blocks for creating long lean muscles.
Green tea is one of nature’s metabolic boosters known for its thermogenic properties, ie. they heat up the body to increase metabolism and aid fat-burning.
Asparagus is packed full of vitamins A, C and E as well as zinc and potassium, the latter being important for maintaining fluid balance in the body.
Chilli is known for its fat busting and metabolism increasing properties. It’s also high in beta-carotene great for skin health.
Packed full of vitamin E and potassium, avocado is great for the skin as well as regulating fluid balance.
Containing an important set of metabolism boosting B vitamins, quinoa is also a non-wheat, non-gluten grain and therefore most people find it anti-bloating.
Salmon is a great source of protein and high in polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help to keep insulin stable so your body can burn fat more efficiently.
