There are a number of workouts that could actually help you lose weight but choosing the right foods do help as well. If you'd ask for my personal opinion, I'd say you should combine workouts with the foods you eat for the best result in the best possible time.
However, let's get back to our topic and look at some foods that can help you lose belly fat.
Oats are highly rich in fiber and fiber is one of the components that helps in weight loss. Oats also help in the prevention of digestive system disorder.

HDL (high-density lipoprotein) is a good form of cholesterol while LDL (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) is a bad form of cholesterol. Studies have shown that consuming whole eggs can increase your HDL cholesterol more than the LDL form. So consuming a whole egg can actually help in weight loss and belly fat.
