Looking for new ways to blast stubborn belly fat? Experts say that switching to an anti-inflammatory diet can help.
Here are four anti-inflammatory foods doctors swear by to boost the metabolism and burn fat faster:
These powerful berries contain high levels of bioflavonoids, which are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. A serving of blueberries can help you shrink your waistline and combat inflammation-causing free radicals.
Salmon gets its anti-inflammatory properties from omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA, which have been found to decrease levels of LDL and triglycerides.
Oregon Health and Science University researchers consider tart cherries to have the highest anti-inflammatory content of any food because of the fruit's high levels of anthocyanins, an anti-inflammatory antioxidant.
Flax seeds are another healthy way to get a daily dose of inflammation-fighting omega-3 fatty acids. They boast nature's highest concentration of plant-based omega-3s and makes for an easy addition to any meal!
