In order to brush up on some of that nutrition knowledge, I attended a seminar where various dietitians and speakers contributed their professional opinions about maintaining a healthy diet, etc. Although most speakers were interesting, one dietician sparked my attention because she wants everyone of her clients to maintain a “no white food” diet in terms of processed food such as baked goods with a white flour base. Hopefully she hasn’t sworn off all white food, because cottage cheese and cauliflower are absolute gems in terms of beneficial health gains!
Even though the dietician is fair in swearing off white processed foods, there are a ton of white colored foods that are must-haves in order to decrease belly fat. And believe me, cottage cheese and cauliflower are only a few that can help in this department. There are a wide range of food sources from the dairy to the fish triangle of the food pyramid that work wonders for that belly. Some low carb veggies include but are not limited to parsnips, garlic, onions, mushrooms and turnips. Not to mention you can mix some of these up to reduce even more belly fat!
Also, white beans are a great source of insoluble fiber that yields a very low glycemic index or produces a low amount of blood sugar. Unlike overly processed white bread or cake, white beans actually maintain a healthy amount of blood sugar, while proving to be a super reliable source for protein. Some other great foods to consume for protein are dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt that overall offer probiotics galore. A total gem, right? Although most white fish is great for decreasing belly fat, there are four that you should not consume because of high levels of contamination–stay tuned to find out more!
