Belly fat can effectively be lost by eating certain fat-burning foods. Such foods are rich in protein and fiber to keep the body full longer in the effort to stave off hunger, according to Good Housekeeping.
Protein and fiber-rich choices include oatmeal, whole grains, beans, lean meats and fish, green vegetables, avocados, Greek yogurt, nuts, peanut butter, iced tea and protein powder, explains Good Housekeeping.
Ten to 35 percent of the daily recommended calories should come from protein. Men and women 50 years of age and younger require 38 and 25 daily grams of fiber, respectively, according to WebMD.
