When you want to burn more belly fat, the key is choosing foods that are high in two nutrients: fiber and protein.

High-fiber foods are excellent because they fill you up fast, reduce hunger, and keep your digestive system working well. And protein is important for building muscle, which in and of itself helps you burn more fat.

Kickstart your morning or boost your mid-after energy levels with a fiber-filled or protein-rich smoothie (even better: include ingredients that boast both nutrients).

Here are four fat-burning smoothies nutritionists say basically blast belly fat.
