If you’re looking for the best flat belly vegan foods then you’re in the right place.
Healthy fats, protein, and vegetables are what you should eat it to get that flat belly you desire.
To absolutely maximize your results and even speed the process you should add in some aerobic exercises and strength training. Combining HIIT training, Circuit Training, running, and strength training into your weekly workout schedule is especially what I would recommend.
It’s been tested by physique and fitness models time and time again that a high protein diet with moderate healthy fats and vegetables will help give you a flatter stomach.
But what does this entail you to eat if you follow a vegan diet?
Before I answer this, It’s important to also be aware of foods that cause you weight gain and these are the foods you should avoid:
- Foods high in salt (take out and premade meals)
- Foods high in sugar
- Refined carbohydrates such as white flour, pasta, cakes or biscuits
- Processed foods
- Fast foods
By reducing the amount of added salt in your diet, drinking lots of water, consuming lots of green tea and organic black coffee, and following a high protein, healthy fat, and vegetable diet, along with HIIT exercises and strength training etc. you will get the flat belly you desire without needing to eat any animal meat at all!
Below are the best flat belly vegan foods to eat in order to get a toned stomach.
Note: Eating the following food along with fat-burning exercises 80-90% of the time will get you the results! But it’s not for the weak-hearted.
