Visceral fat is located around the middle part of the body, deep in the abdominal cavity. The condition is widely understood as the result of a sedentary lifestyle and hormonal imbalances.
The main danger of visceral fat lies in the harmful chemicals it releases into the bloodstream, which have been linked to an increased risk of heart attack. As with different types of weight loss, the most reasonable approach to reducing fat storage includes exercise and restricting food intake. However, adding certain foods to your diet may be equally beneficial for losing visceral fat. Some plant-based products, such as tofu, may help reduce food cravings by an astonishing 60%.
Previous studies have shown that eating more protein reduces cravings by 60%.
It has also been proven that protein consumption can boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day.
In a paper published in the journal Obesity, researchers set out to determine the effects of dietary protein on perceived appetite during weight loss.
They tested a sample of 27 overweight and obese men. The sample was divided into three groups, two of which consumed a high proportion of protein for three or six meals a day, while the third group ate three traditional meals.
The study determined that increasing protein intake to 25% of calories could reduce cravings by 60%.
The results also revealed that this may cut the desire to snack at night in half. But it was also found that protein intake was directly related to lower abdominal circumference.
Research published in Nutrition and Metabolism confirmed this, indicating that people who eat more protein have less belly fat.
The findings corroborate separate research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, which highlighted the prolonged effects of protein intake.
The authors of a 2006 paper established that protein intake was associated with a significant reduction in the chance of gaining belly fat in women over a five-year period. They also linked fruits and vegetables to reduced fat storage.
The medical website, MedicineNet, confirms these results, noting that a diet rich in vegetable proteins can help get rid of belly fat “overnight.”
Plant protein can be found in acid, or nuts and seeds such as almonds, walnuts and sunflower seeds, according to the health website.
But one protein source known to help reduce visceral fat is tofu, thanks to its high soy isoflavone content.
Vegetarian food, which consists of soy protein, is low in calories but rich in protein and fat.
