Remember those greens most of us have had a habit of avoiding like the plague? I’m talking about the broccoli or spinach we’d throw under the table when mom wasn’t looking.
Turns out that if you’re interested in winning the battle against abdominal fat, veggie fat-burners should be a part of your diet.
According to research, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli. brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, cauliflower, etc., contain phytonutrients such as indole -3-carbinol that specifically help to fight against estrogenic compounds that can cause belly fat.
These are especially effective weapons against the daily exposure to pesticides, herbicides and petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, cosmetics, etc., that can react with our body, causing it to store excess abdominal fat.
