CWP Fitness: 5 Food You Must Eat to Achieve Your Flat Tummy Goal.

 Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Mothers and Fathers....if you are not pregnant, there is no reason why you should have a protruding tummy (a.k.a Afu beer, a.k.a pot belly) ; it just doesn't look nice at all. When I see some men with tummy as big as a nine months pregnant woman, I get this urge to go ask them questions like; "Nna, How do you sleep at night?" "How do you breath?" "How do you even stay on top of her, does the 'thing' get in?" *hehehehe* Yeah, weird questions but seriously when you are not fit there are so many things you just can't do right. 
Ladies the importance of you having a flat tummy cannot
be over emphasized, I've said this before and am repeating it again "you CANNOT look good in those clothes if you do not look fit".
Last time on CWP Fitness, I talked about three simple workout routine you can combine to give you the flat and sexy abs (If you missed it, read it here). Today I shall share 5 food you should eat to achieve your flat tummy goal.

What to eat:

1. Eggs

Eggs are perfect protein source. Eggs are highly respected by dietitians because of their balance of essential amino acids (protein building blocks used by your body to manufacture everything from muscle fibers to brain chemicals). Researchers at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that when people ate eggs in the morning, they felt less hungry throughout the day than when breakfast consisted of complex carbohydrates.
One egg a day, unless you have high blood cholesterol, in which case you should check with your doctor first. (One egg packs about 213 milligrams of cholesterol.)

2. Soybean

Soybeans are a great source of antioxidants, fiber, and protein. Plus, they are incredibly versatile.  Liquid soy also makes a good meal replacement: A study from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that overweight subjects who drank a soy milk-based meal replacement lost more weight than those who consumed a traditional dairy-based diet drink.

3. Apples

 A 2003 study in the journal Nutrition found that overweight women who consumed three apples or pears a day for three months lost more weight than their counterparts who were fed a similar diet with oat cookies instead of fruits. "A large apple has 5 grams of fiber, but it's also nearly 85 percent water, which helps you feel full," explains Elisa Zied, RD, author of So What Can I Eat?! (Wiley, 2006). Apples also contain quercetin, a compound shown to help fight certain cancers, reduce cholesterol damage, and promote healthy lungs.  Remember, An apple a day keeps the doctor.

4. Leafy Greens

Their cancer-preventing carotenoids won't help shrink your waistline, but their low calorie count definitely will. One cup of spinach contains only about 40 calories, while a cup of broccoli has 55 calories and satisfies 20 percent of your day's fiber requirement. Most leafy greens are also a good source of calcium, an essential ingredient for muscle contraction. In other words, they help fuel your workouts.

5. Yogurt

People who get their calcium from yogurt rather than from other sources may lose more weight around their midsection, according to a recent study published in the International Journal of Obesity. The probiotic bacteria in most yogurts help keep your digestive system healthy, which translates into a lower incidence of gas, bloating, and constipation, which can keep your tummy looking flat.
