There are several types of vegetables that help with burning belly fat, most specifically green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli. These types of vegetables have a significant amount of fiber to increase fat loss, and add only minimal calories.
A salad that includes dark green lettuce varieties such as arugula and romaine is a perfect meal, or beginning of a meal, in a diet designed to reduce belly fat. Iceberg lettuce should be avoided due to its low fiber content. Eating a salad before a main meal promotes smaller meal portions and helps avoid excess indulgence in high calorie foods.
