1. Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is basically just normal yoghurt that has been strained so much that the calories become low, and the protein content becomes concentrated. 

7 ounces of Greek yoghurt that has not been sweetened is believed to contain

  • 146 calories 
  • 20 grams of protein
  • 3.8 grams of fat
  • Vitamins 
  • Calcium

A low-calorie, high-protein combo is almost always a great idea if you are trying to lose belly fat.

Low calories suggest that you will likely burn all the calories you need before your next meal, and there won’t be any buildup.

2. Avocado

When trying to lose belly fat, bear in mind that you are not expected to deprive yourself of all the fat you need. You can eat fat, but not too much. 

Avocados can be the source of fat you need. A great way to eat them is to spread them over low-calorie bread such as wheat bread. 

Be careful to avoid white bread, as this may contain too many calories for you. High protein, in the same vein, suggest that more muscle building is going to happen. Replacing fat mass with muscle mass.
