From our partners at Diet-to-Go:

Tuning into your body's natural eating and sleep schedules is the key to banishing belly fat. Making a few simple tweaks to your diet  can help diminish inflammation and kick fat burning into high gear. 

Incorporate these 7 superfoods into your diet to improve your sleep, control hunger hormones and melt belly fat: 

Nuts – Eating about a quarter cup of almonds per day can reduce weight and BMI, according to a recent study. Plus, nuts help satisfy hunger better than traditional snacks like pretzels and chips, which contain refined carbohydrates (more on those later).

Sweet Potatoes – Well known as a “super food,” this tuber is rich in antioxidants, which help to stabilize blood sugar levels and lower insulin resistance, preventing excess calories from being converted to fat.

Whole Grains – People who ate three or more servings of whole-grain carbohydrates per day (oatmeal, quinoa, whole-wheat bread) had a 10% reduction in belly fat compared to people who ate the same number of processed carbohydrate servings (white rice, bagels and pasta), according to a study from Tufts University.

Berries – These tasty treats double as dessert – try strawberries, raspberries and blackberries – and are packed with polyphenols, which reduce inflammation and stop belly fat from forming.

Grapefruit - According to study in the journal Metabolism, participants who ate grapefruit for six weeks lost up to a full inch off their waistlines and lowered their cholesterol. Researchers attribute the effects to a combination of phytochemicals and vitamin C in grapefruit.

Cayenne – Cayenne contains a compound called Capsaicin, which has been proven to burn belly fat, suppress appetite and boost the body’s ability to convert food to energy.

Salmon – This fish is packed with muscle-building protein, which helps speed up your metabolism and allows you to burn more calories even when you are sitting in your car or at your desk.
