Blueberries Are More Than A Pretty Color
One cup of blueberries has 21 grams of carbs but, they are they loaded with polyphenols. Polyphenols are chemical compounds that prevent fat from forming and they actively burn belly fat. A kind of spot reducing fat burner that tastes good too!
One University of Michigan study found rats that ate blueberry powder as part of their meals lost belly fat and had lower cholesterol, even when they ate a high-fat diet.
The theory is that the catechins in blueberries activate the fat burning gene in belly fat cells.
So it worked on rats but what about people?
A study from Tufts University showed that people who regularly ate catechins increased their belly fat loss by 77%.
Back to the lab animals
The University of Iowa showed blueberries may be muscle builders. With skins rich in ursolic acid, a chemical which researchers found prevents muscle breakdown in lab animals.
So beside eating them in oatmeal, frozen or not, by the handful or in a pie, how can you add more blueberries into your diet?
Simple, just add this drink to your meal plans. It uses 2 cups of blueberries along with 6 other ingredients to help melt belly fat quicker.

The kale and spinach provide a healthy dose of calcium which also helps with bone strength and bonus, burns fat instead of storing it.
The almond and flax seed combination is loaded with omega 3 fats which have been proven to increase fat burning in humans.
