You might not know that there are actually some specific vegetables that can aid to lose belly fat.
One fact you may not be aware of is that there are some chemical compounds in our food supply and in our environment, such as herbicides (substance used to kill unwanted plants), pesticides, and petrochemicals that have an estrogenic effect on our bodies. This effect can increase belly fat in women and men.
The compounds that I'm talking about are called xenoestrogens. These are chemicals that go into your body and act like hormones and that induct fat storing and fat creating hormones. Being exposed to them through our food and water supply, and the environment, stimulates our body to hold onto belly fat. The problem here is that it is almost impossible not to be exposed to xenoestrogens on a daily basis. We can even find them in cosmetics and household cleaners.
You might ask, how do I fight against these xenoestrogens so they do not hold belly fat?
That is where the specific vegetables that I mentioned earlier come into action. They are very healthy and they specifically aid our bodies to lose body fat.
There are many types of vegetables, teas, spices, etc that can contribute to fight against the effects of xenoestrogens. In particular, the ones that have the most powerful type are cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower etc.
These classes of vegetables contain unique compounds (phytonutrients) such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C) that aid to fight against the effects of xenoestrogens in our bodies and as a result they can aid to lose body fat more effectively.
Another reason to eat more broccoli and cauliflower …
