Want to reduce your belly fat? No need to eliminate entire food groups, all you need are some sneaky food swaps! Whilst you cannot use exercise to spot-reduce, diet can affect where you lose and gain weight. Research shows that certain foods can increase belly fat, while other foods can help decrease belly fat. Some studies even show that when people eat the same number of calories or lose the same amount of weight, certain foods can affect what you lose, with some foods helping increase the amount of belly fat lost, increase the amount body fat lost and even minimize the loss of muscle.
Ditch the chocolate bars and go for dark chocolate instead. Satisfy your chocolate craving with a few bites of dark chocolate, which contains belly fat fighting monounsaturated fat and free-radical-fighting flavonoids. Because dark chocolate is very rich, you’ll also eat less. And, according to research published in the British Medical Journal, it may even be good for your heart – in moderation of course!
