Want an easy way to get rid of stubborn belly fat? Just eat! Eating a combination of anti-inflammatory food with lean, low calories veggies and proteins is the best way to flush belly fat. The part is—you can make them all in your crock pot!
This isn’t your plain ol’ chicken and potato dish. Featuring an exotic blend of spices, this chicken crockpot meal’s main star is Tumeric. Tumeric’s active ingredient is curcumin—which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and a very strong antioxidant. Eating it regularly helps increase bile production in the stomach which helps in emulsifying fat and metabolism. Combine turmeric’s anti-inflammatory power with low-fat plain yogurt’s satiating protein ability and you have an easy dish that will keep you feeling fuller longer and control appetite.

Think rice is off-limits if you want to lose belly fat? Nope! It’s all about the type of rice and packing it full of flavors. White rice often gets a bad rep, but switching to brown or wild rice will not only satisfy your rice craving, but it’s also healthier too! Brown rice is rich in selenium and manganese, which helps improve heart health. It’s also high in fiber which helps promote weight loss. Wild rice is also high in fiber–great news for your midsection. Turmeric is the main ingredient in curry spices. Mix that with the anti-inflammatory power in broccoli and mushrooms and you can’t go wrong with this rice dish.
