Hello Fit Girls! Doing the Ab Challenge?

Yummy for the Tummy
Here are the 10 best foods you can eat to get (and keep) the abs you always wanted, control belly bloat, and maintain a healthy metabolism. Just to make sure we’re on the same page, you don’t get abs just by eating this! Don’t be delusional.
1 Almonds nuts contain filling protein and fiber, not to mention vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. They’re also a good source of magnesium, a mineral your body must have in order to produce energy, build and maintain muscle tissue, and regulate blood sugar.
2 Apples contain around 5 grams of fiber, but it’s also nearly 85 percent water, which helps you feel full. Apples also contain quercetin, a compound shown to help fight certain cancers, reduce cholesterol damage, and promote healthy lungs.
3 Berries, every Fit Girl’s best friend, are loaded with fiber. The more fiber you eat — experts say that it’s best to get between 25 and 35 grams every day — the fewer calories you absorb from all the other stuff you put in your mouth. Antioxidants help improve blood flow, which can help muscles contract more efficiently
4 Eggs are highly respected by dietitians because of their balance of essential amino acids (protein building blocks used by your body to manufacture everything from muscle fibers to brain chemicals). The protein and fat in the egg may be contributing to the feeling of satiety.
5 Leafy greens are also a good source of calcium, an essential ingredient for muscle contraction. In other words, they help fuel your workouts. Besides the’re low in calories.
6 Quinoa contains 5 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein per half cup. Cook it as you would any other grain.
7 Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These uber-healthy fats may help promote fat burning by making your metabolism more efficient.
8 Soy is a great source of antioxidants, fiber, and protein. Plus, they’re incredibly versatile. Snack on dry-roasted soybeans, toss shelled edamame into soups, and slip a spoonful of silken tofu into your morning smoothie
9 Veggie Soup, it’s a simple way to get your vegetables. Eating soup is awesome!
10 Yoghurt contains probiotic bacteria which help keep your digestive system healthy, which translates into a lower incidence of gas, bloating, and constipation, which can keep your tummy looking flat.
