brussel sprouts

Recipe: Garlic Lemon Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Today we have a high-fiber side dish that is super simple to make (bonus!).

Fiber can help reduce belly fat in a few ways.  First of all it helps you feel full and also helps to reduce the amount of calories you absorb from your food.  Some examples of high-fiber foods are brussel sprouts, flax and chia seeds, avocado, and blackberries.

Why am I talking about belly fat? It’s not just about the “pinchable” fat under the skin (you know, that “muffin top”), it’s about the internal fat around your abdominal organs that can be the real issue.

Getting more sleep is another important way to reduce belly fat. Try making this a priority and seeing how much better you feel (and look).
