7 Ab-Flattening Foods


hittle your middle by piling your plate with these ab-flattening foods our instructors swear by — and science supports!




1. ALMONDS
The science: Don't be afraid to go a little nuts: A handful of almonds (1.5 ounces, to be exact) have been shown to cut your risk of heart disease by diminishing your belly fat, a study from in The Journal of the American Heart Association indicates.
Instructor favorite: “My favorite on-the-go snack is a snack pack of almonds — it's an easy quick source of protein.” — SYDNEY MILLER


2. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
The science: Sure, it smells strong, but this stuff works: A study published in Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry revealed that people who took apple cider vinegar daily for 12 weeks lost one to two pounds more weight than those who drank only water. Researchers theorize that vinegar may rev genes that help break down fat.
Instructor favorite: "I love to make a mandarin, ginger and parsley dressing with apple cider vinegar: Here's how:
Mandarin, Ginger & Parsley Dressing
• 1 handful of parsley, de-stemmed
• 3 thumbsize pieces of fresh ginger, peeled
• Juice of 4-5 mandarins (getting some pulp in the dressing is totally fine!)
• 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
• 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
• 1 small clove of garlic (a little goes a long way!)
— MOLLI SULLIVAN


3. AVOCADOS

Instructor favorite: "Avocado is one of the superfoods that keeps my body maintaining itself. They keep my skin healthy.” — MIKE PRESS



4. BANANAS
The science: Bananas can be your belly’s BFF: Eating just one delivers 422 milligrams of potassium, which helps flush out bloat-inducing sodium in your body.
Instructor favorite: “I always stock up on (and fuel up on almost every day) on bananas. Bananas provide carbohydrates and replenish potassium lost during exercise.” — KENDRA KEMERLEY


5. BLUEBERRIES
Instructor favorite: “I eat blueberries alone, put them in smoothies AND throw them in oatmeal. Even my rescue pup Josie loves them!” — BETHANY LYONS



6. WHOLE GRAINS
The science: Going with the grain can help fight weight gain: People who munched on them lost more tummy fat than dieters who ate refined grains, reveals a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Scientists theorize that fiber helps keep your body's insulin levels low, which could help dwarf fat cells.
Instructor favorite: “I love Nature's Path Crunchy Maple Sunrise cereal. It is jam-packed with super grains like flax, quinoa and buckwheat.” — RYAN LEWIS



7. YOGURT
The science: Talk about belly-loving spoonfuls: While an imbalance of bacteria in your gut can slow digestion and lead to bloating, yogurts that contain live bacteria (a.k.a. probiotics) can ease the puff: Research from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that probiotics improve intestinal mobility and relieve bloating.
Instructor favorite: “After SOUL, I love to have a Wallaby organic Greek yogurt.” — ABBY EFFRON
