5 foods that help lose belly fat in winters

According to experts, winters help accelerate weight loss as we tend to burn more calories in the cold weather. From whole grains to green tea, here are five foods to include in your winter diet if you want to lose belly fat. 

Beetroot

This root vegetable is low in fat and rich in fibre which helps lower cholesterol levels. 

Cinnamon 

Spices such as cinnamon help control blood sugar levels and reduce belly fat.

Green leafy vegetables 

Green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach are rich in vitamin K which stimulate weight loss. 

Fatty fish

Fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids which boost metabolism and burn more calories, helping reduce visceral fat. 

Whole grains

Incorporating whole grains like wheat, millet and buckwheat in your diet can be beneficial for weight loss as they are rich in fibre, amino acids, vitamins and minerals which satiate hunger.
