Berries are some of the best fruits you can incorporate into your daily diet if you want to lose abdominal fat. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries all contain powerful antioxidants that can 1) protect your body and skin from free radicals, 2) efficiently lower your body fat including belly fat, and 3) improve insulin resistance and glucose control in the body.
Studies have proven that these antioxidant-rich fruits can help with the way the body stores and processes sugar and glucose for making energy.
With all the benefits, why not try a 5-ingredient berry smoothie for your next meal? Here is a simple smoothie recipe that you can drink in the mornings for maximum fat loss and an antioxidant boost. Adding some cinnamon is really great for your digestive tract and for the proper functioning of your colon in the mornings. If you want to fortify your smoothie with protein, you can add unsweetened brown rice protein.
