I am excited to share this article featured in Eat This, Not That, where our Uplift Food founder and gut-health expert dietitian, Kara Landau, talks about some eating habits that can help speed up belly fat loss as you age.
Let’s check out what she has to say below!
Consume foods high in resistant starch
Kara emphasizes the role “resistant starch” plays in reducing our fat storage around the waist. Resistant starch is a "fiber like" nutrient that passes through our small intestine undigested.
“The fermentation process initiated by those starches is helpful for achieving a flatter belly,” says Kara. She suggests consuming resistant starch on a daily basis. This little action will surprise you with sustainable weight loss. Try some foods high in resistant starch. Uplift’s Prebiotic Bliss Bites can be a good choice!
Make sure you are getting enough fiber
Kara then highlights the importance of fiber in maintaining people’s overall health, especially for the elderly. She mentions that consuming a high-fiber diet keeps you feeling fuller for longer, so you don’t overeat.
Aside from keeping fit and losing weight, high-fiber diets help keep things moving along the digestive tract to constantly support your gut health. Reaching your daily fiber intake of 25 to 30 grams for adults can be simple, actually. It might just require you to crush our Gut Happy Cookies over a probiotic-rich greek yogurt for breakfast or snack on them as a digestive biscuit during the day. Another option is, Uplift’s Prebiotic Puffs, the highest fiber-Puffs on the market. These tasty puffs are always at your disposal, ready to help with your daily fiber target.
We hope this article has given you some ideas on finding healthy, sustainable, and long-lasting ways to lose weight. Expert dietitian Kara Landau always advocates the importance of a healthy gut. She gives her sincere suggestions on incorporating more prebiotics and fiber into simple eating habits, which is helpful for achieving a flatter belly.
