• 1 Trick Of A Tiny Belly:


Do You Eat These 6 Sneaky Flat Belly Foods?

By Rob Poulos...

I’m just finishing up a delish lean body lunch… field greens mixed with roasted chicken breast, dried cherries, walnuts, egg, tomatoes, cucumber slices and tangerines.  I am literally devouring this thing…

The funny part is I got this awesome salad from my local Coney Island!  Just because a place is known for junk food doesn’t mean you can’t find something healthy AND delicious.

So with that in mind, I wanted to share 6 of my “sneakiest” flab fighting foods today.

…why are they sneaky?  Because they are pretty common foods that most people don’t know also have great metabolism boosting properties.

OK, so here are these foods you should try adding to your meal plans each day for more lean body success:

1. FRESH GARLIC or pickled garlic is a natural antibiotic, a blood sugar regulator, and also works like a thermogenic in your body. It boosts metabolism and keeps insulin levels low to maximize fat burning.  Cool huh?

2. EDAMAME contain lecithin, which can help your body to keep your cells from accumulating fat. You can steam them or there are even dried or roasted snacking versions that are great when you’re on the go.

3. APPLES & BERRIES are a delicious source of pectin, which limits the amount of phat your cells absorb because of its water-binding properties.  Apples are one of my go-to snack (along with a teaspoon of raw organic nut butter) most of the time.

4. GINGER expands your blood vessels and can increase your metabolism by nearly 20%. It also detoxifies your body as it stimulates circulation throughout.

5. CINNAMON helps your body to metabolize sugar about 20 times faster and lower your body’s blood-sugar levels, which will help keep fat off.  And all it takes is about 1/4 of a teaspoon added to your meal or snack. Try sprinkling some on some apple slices and you have a LEAN BODY DYNAMIC DUO!

6. CAYENNE PEPPER is one of the best fat-burning spices, burning calories by triggering a thermodynamic burn that lasts hours after eating.  Use sparingly if you are sensitive to spicy food.

Alright, so make a point to start working these 6 sneaky fat-burning foods into your meal plan today, and your body will surely get leaner, faster…

How many of these foods are you already eating, and if not all, what’s your excuse!?

    Great suggestions, Rob! I’ve been drinking a lot of ginger tea lately. Nice to know it’s increasing my metabolism so much. Thanks.

    Does it need to be fresh garlic or can you take pills so it isn’t stinky?

  4. Charlene Gibson

    I’m allergic to legumes (big NO on the edamame), but I eat everything else

    I’m curious as to why you spell fat as “phat” when referring to these foods as being fat-burning.

  9. Nance

    We steep 1/2 of a cinnamon stick in each pot of tea we brew. Have been doing it for years. We are all still ovewrweight – BUT we do NOT have diabetes, even though it is in both sets of families.

    Lots of controversy over the edamame- many of your “friends” who send out similar daily/weekly blogs say to stay away from soy, so I keep those out of my diet completely! I wonder what they would say about that recommendation…..

    • Rob Poulos

      Yeah I should clarify that huh? Most of the soy my compadres warn you about is of the heavily processed variety found in soy alternative foods like soy milk, etc. Edamame is an immature form of natural unprocessed soy that is rich in protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and micronutrients like folic acid, manganese and vitamin K…it also has been shown to have antioxidant properties… a great alternative to animal based proteins to sprinkle into your fat burning diet once a while for sure…

    Hi, I’m also curious about your spelling of ‘phat’. It makes me wonder if there is a legal problem with using the word ‘fat’ instead, or does it leave you open to having people sue you if your recommendations don’t work? Please comment publicly.

    • Rob Poulos

      Hey Millie, no, sometimes email systems see the word ‘fat’ (along with dozens of other words) and they immediately trash the message before it has a chance to even get through…
