The Belly Fat Cure: Three Punch Knock-Out (Recipes Included)

Belly Fat Leads to More Belly Fat by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist and 50-pound big-time-loser. Write Janice for Free Consult!
Despite my (successful) diet attempts, healthy lifestyle, prayers and screams, my mid-section has grown a section of its own! YIKES! This weight loss guru can’t have that happen! What to do? Research belly fat, fight back and knock those mid-section fatties outta’ here!
It’s all in the Why Me “Y!”
Researchers have found that fat cells in the abdomen produce a hormone called neuropeptide Y (NPY), an appetite stimulant previously believed to originate form the brain.
Belly Fat Cure
Fortunately, scientists have found that certain foods do fight belly fat. Three big claps for the scientists! (Clap! Clap! Clap!)
#1 punch … Whole Grain Foods
Studies show that those who incorporate whole grains, cereals and other foods into their diets tend to lose more fat from their abdomens than those who eat only refined-grain foods. You know, the ‘white’ stuff.
Brown Rice Bites!
This recipe incorporates all three knock-out-fat ingredients! Plus hot and spicy salsa! (Research shows that hot and spicy foods support your weight loss efforts, as well!)
Ingredients:
3 cups cooked brown rice, cooled
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, lite
2 eggs
4 egg whites
1 16-oz. jar HOT Salsa, thick and chunky style
1/2 cup 2% plain yogurt (Greek is best!)
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup crushed corn chips, organic
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine rice and cheese; set aside.
In medium bowl, beat eggs until well blended.
Stir in salsa, yogurt, salt and pepper.
Add salsa mixture to rice and cheese; mix well.
Spray mini-muffin pans with cooking spray.
Spoon in rice mixture, to just below the rim.
Sprinkle crushed chips on top; gently press into mixture.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown. YUM!
#2 punch … Low-Fat Milk and Yogurt
Research shows that the more calcium in the fat cells, the more the fat cells burn fat. So, load up on calcium rich foods!
Like Hummus:
My neighbor says, “Hummus is like crack to me. I love it!” I concur! Here’s a ‘low-cal’ totally healthy version that features yogurt. Again, I so prefer the Greek kind.
Ingredients:
1 15 oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained (save liquid)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
juice from one freshly squeezed lemon
2 tablespoons low-fat peanut butter
3/4 cup 2% plain yogurt (Greek)
1 teaspoon cumin
a pinch of salt (to taste)
Instructions:
In blender combine all ingredients, blend until smooth and creamy. If it is too thick, add a bit of the liquid from the chick peas.
#3 punch … Lean Protein
Lean proteins, eggs and beans, help to keep you feeling full longer, increase your energy, which in turn helps you to burn belly fat.
Jane’s Ginger-Lemon Chicken
My friend, Jane, shared this recipe with me. It’s delicious, healthy, easy to whip up, and it’s an easy clean-up!
Ingredients:
12 oz. chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
1/3 c. coarsely cut fresh cilantro
1/2-inch piece fresh ginger
grated peel of 1/2 lemon
2 cloves minced garlic
juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. olive oil
Instructions:
Combine ingredients in a food processor and then baste on the chicken as it broils.
About six minutes per side.
Enjoy!
Spread the word, NOT the icing!
