I bet you didn't know that there are certain vegetables that contain very unique phytonutrients that actually help to fight against stubborn belly fat.
Let’s take a look at these unique vegetables and why they help to burn stomach fat...Chemicals that force your body to hold onto belly fat.
According to personal trainer, Mike Geary, there may are certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, plastics and cosmetics that can react with your hormones and make your body store excess abdominal fat.
These harmful chemicals are known as xenoestrogens.
Xenoestrogens are chemicals that you are exposed to (and are hard to avoid in the modern world) that have an estrogenic effect in your body. Excess exposure to these can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women.
These estrogenic chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis can stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many other problems (including cancer risks in the long term).
So here's where this specific class of vegetables comes in handy...
One of those cool tricks that I teach my clients is the use of cruciferous vegetables to help fight against belly fat.
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage contain very specific and unique phytonutrients that will help you fight against these estrogenic compounds.
And by fighting against these belly fat stimulating estrogenic chemicals, this is just one more step in helping you to win the battle against belly fat!
So there you go... just another excuse to do what mom always told you and eat more broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage!
I've really learned to like broccoli in the last year too... Add some garlic and it tastes great!
