There are several factors that can hinder you from having a flat belly but most of the factors depend on your diet. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the factors include taking soda, interrupted eating, insomnia and popular foods that people love. The popular processed foods such as chips, bread and other common baked products are mostly responsible for the visceral fat. 

If you don’t know that you are what you eat then you must be doing yourself more harm than good. The American Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that the body usually takes in the important and essential nutrients from the food we eat and the unwanted contents contribute to weight gain. 

A fan of processed foods can find it difficult to shred belly fat because most of them are made from refined sugar and carbohydrates. Refined carbohydrates normally have their natural fibres removed; the removal of the fibres result to empty calories that are usually accumulated in the belly.

The foods you need to be keen on if you want a flat tummy are bread, mandazis, chapatis, samosas, chips, crisps and soda. This is because they can reverse the gains you are trying to achieve about your belly fat. Less refined grains can be good in ensuring that you don’t eat foods that are quick sources of energy. Refined carbohydrates can also prompt you to eat a lot as you will feel hungry shortly after eating.
