Sleek, slender abs – Could you imagine that a particular group of vegetables is loaded with unique phytonutrients that fight fat, specifically the hard-to-lose belly fat?

Let’s introduce these fat fighting vegetables and understand their role in battling belly fat…

Harmful Chemicals That Push Your Body to Accumulate Abdominal Fat

Here’s a lesser-known fact you might find interesting – specific chemicals present in our food and surroundings, such as pesticides, herbicides, and some petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, plastics, cosmetics, and more, can disrupt your hormonal balance and encourage your body to hoard additional abdominal fat.

These harmful chemicals are identified as xenoestrogens.

Xenoestrogens are chemicals that you’re exposed to daily (almost impossible to evade in today’s world) that have an estrogenic effect on your body. An overdose of these can lead to hormone imbalance in both genders. So, this article isn’t gender-specific, these chemicals can instigate problems for both men and women.

These estrogen-mimicking chemicals we interact with every day can drive your body to store belly fat and induce several other issues (including escalating cancer risks in the long term).

This is where our unique group of fat-fighting vegetables comes to the rescue…

One useful tip I share with my clients who come to me for dietary advice is to include cruciferous vegetables in their diet to battle belly fat.

Cruciferous vegetables, like cauliflower, cabbage, kale, bok choy, broccoli, and others, are loaded with special phytonutrients such as indole-3-carbinol (I3C). These phytonutrients actively counter these estrogenic compounds…

By combating these belly fat-inducing estrogen-like chemicals, you take another step towards winning the war against abdominal fat!

So, this provides another persuasive argument to follow age-old wisdom and eat more cauliflower and broccoli!

I’ve also started enjoying Brussels sprouts in the past year… A little cheese made from grass fed cows and maybe garlic, and they make a delectable fat-fighting dish!


While this group of vegetables can be a superior choice for getting a lean, strong, and vibrant body… I’ve discovered that there are at least 24 frequently consumed foods that most people wrongly label as “healthy”, but they actually HINDER your metabolic process and add fat to your stomach , including the ABSOLUTE BADDEST type of DAIRY you should avoid…
