Eat Your Way to a Flat Stomach With These 2 Foods, According to Weight Loss Expert

Jenna Rizzo claims that eating these foods will help you lose weight fast. 

Do you want to lose weight by eating yummy food? Fitness influencer and online coach Jenna Rizzo (@jennaaaamariee) has been helping women get in shape the natural way – via diet and exercise, for six years. In a recent TikTok video she claims that you can lose weight fast by adding two foods to your diet. "These are two foods you're not eating, but you absolutely should be if you want a flat stomach," she says at the start of the clip. She explained that she recently got a text from one of her clients who lost five pounds in two weeks simply by adding them to her diet. The Body Network also consulted with our Resident RDN, The Diet Diva, Tara Collingwood, MS, RDN, CSSD, LD/N, ACSM-CPT, a Board Certified Sports Dietitian, to weigh in on the foods. 

Food One: Fermented Food


"The first thing you want to make sure you're eating a lot of is any type of fermented foods," says Jen. "These are foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha."

They Are Loaded with Nutrients and Probiotics


Why are fermented foods good for you? "These foods are going to be loaded with nutrients and a good bacteria called probiotics, and these foods are going to help way more with reducing bloating than any type of greens drink ever will," she claims. Collingwood is a big fan of probiotics, as they "are excellent for gut health which can potentially help with weight loss, immune system, and overall wellness," she says. "Fermented foods are a natural way to get probiotics into the gut and aiming for daily consumption is an excellent goal."

Food Two: Protein


The second thing is to "add protein to every single meal and snack you eat throughout the day," Jen says. "I don't care who you are, you're probably not eating enough protein."

Protein Keeps You Satiated and Helps Burn Fat


"Not only is protein going to help you feel full for longer periods of time, it's going to naturally increase your body's ability to burn fat," Jen explains. 

It Promotes Muscle Tone


"It also creates a nice muscle tone so when you do lose weight, you don't end up looking skinny fat," she continues.

Aim for 30 Grams of Protein Per Meal and 15 Per Snack


"You want to aim for about 30 grams of protein per meal and 15 grams of protein per snack," she says. "Protein is necessary for all of us, and it is especially good when trying to lose weight," agrees Collingwood. "Protein helps to keep you satiated for longer periods of time as well as having a higher thermic effect of food meaning it burns more calories to digest it than fat or carbs." She recommends aiming for 30 grams per meal "and depending on body weight and activity level, getting a bit more in snacks is also beneficial."
