Both men and women want a flat stomach. It is a sign that we take care of ourselves and that we are healthy. The weight loss industry is a multi billion dollar industry claiming they have the latest and greatest quick fix for that ever evasive washboard stomach.

Experts have recommended that you eat 24 almonds every day to satisfy your hunger pains. By doing so you won’t overload on calories. One thing to note, stay away from the pre-salted nuts and seeds. They are high in sodium and are not good for your blood pressure.

One last note, your body will burn 30% of its calories after eating protein-rich foods.
