What to Eat to Burn Belly Fat

Not all calories are created equal. Eat these foods to naturally increase your body's fat-burning potential


Low-fat milk, low-fat yogurt, Swiss cheese

Secret belly-fat burner: Calcium

A review of more than 90 studies in the journal Nutrition Reviews revealed a strong link between high calcium intake and improved body composition. When your calcium is low, your body secretes hormones that let you make better use of the calcium you have. Problem is, at the same time, your body signals fat cells to hold onto fat, including the fat in your belly. Dairy, including milk (even whole milk, just watch your calories), cheese (especially Swiss), and yogurt, are the preferred sources of calcium. Eat three servings of dairy a day, and keep the rest of your diet in check, and you will steadily lose weight.
