3. Oatmeal

4. Avocado Toast With Tomato,

This trendy breakfast food is popular for a reason. Avocado is high in monounsaturated fat and oleic acid, which can help eliminate belly fat.

Eating avocado also helps you absorb more nutrients, especially carotenoids, and antioxidants are present in tomatoes.

5. Scrambled Eggs

Eggs are a breakfast classic, and not only are they low in calories, but they are high in protein. Adequate protein intake can kickstart your metabolism, making scrambled, hard-boiled or any type of prepared eggs a great choice for fat-burning. Eggs also contain vitamin B12, which breaks down fat in the body.
