Can vegetables help you burn belly fat? Does that sounds crazy to you?
Actually not at all.
First off, if you look around, you will quickly discover that the world we live in now has somewhat become unnatural. The foods we eat are laden with many chemicals and our environment is plagued with many pollutants such as pesticides, petrochemical agents and herbicides. Even if you go totally organic and move to a low pollution area, chances are you will still be somewhat exposed to them. And the fact is, some of these chemicals and pollutants can actually increase your belly fat.
You have to be wary of a type of chemicals called xenoestrogens. They are found almost anywhere in our modern world such as in the foods we eat, our environment, in household cleaners as well as cosmetics. If you ask me, it is close to impossible to avoid xenoestrogens.
But what do these xenoestrogens do?
The simple answer is that xenoestrogens stimulate our bodies to keep the belly fat. Now over time, the belly fat accumulates and we get that fat belly.
So what are our options in fighting off the effects of xenoestrogens, which is so prevalent in our world nowadays?
Fortunately there is a simple solution to fight off the effects of xenoestrogens and burn the belly fat off. The answer lies in us consuming certain foods such as some types of teas, vegetables and spices. These foods have the ability to counteract xenoestrogens’ effects. But if you ask me, one of the best fighters are cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, brussel sprouts, bok choy, broccoli, kale and cauliflower.
What’s amazing about these cruciferous vegetables is that they contain a unique compound called phytonutrients such as Indole-3-Carbinole (I3C) that helps you burn belly fat faster and more effectively, thereby counteracting the effects of xenoestrogens. Additionally, Indole-3-Carbinole has shown fantastic anti-oxidant and anti-cancer properties. They also help to improve the health of your heart.
Indeed time and again vegetables have proven to be that important formula for great health.
So make sure you include these cruciferous vegetables in your daily menu and prepare to burn belly fat faster than ever before.
