Eating foods containing soluble fiber is an effective way to burn belly fat.
When mixed with water, soluble fiber forms a gel-like substance and reduces the absorption of fat, that is, prevents it from being digested and absorbed, thereby helping to control weight. It also slows down the absorption of carbohydrates, helping to stabilize blood sugar levels.
In addition, when it reaches the colon, the food is fermented by gut bacteria into short-chain fatty acids that increase saturation hormones such as cholecystokinin, GLP-1 and PYY. They help reduce body fat by suppressing appetite.
Experts point out that every additional ten grams of soluble fiber consumed per day reduces belly fat by 3.7 percent over five years. This amount of soluble fiber can be obtained by eating two small apples, one cup of green peas, and half a cup of beans. In addition, oats, oat and rice bran, barley, citrus fruits, and strawberries contain fiber.
