Crunchy cruciferous vegetables are more thermogenic than other types of foods, meaning your body burns more calories digesting them, says Juan Carlos Santana, owner of the Institute of Human Performance. Incorporating these foods into your diet can help you boost calorie burn by the increased work your body will have to go through just digesting the food. “Ultimately this can help you decrease body fat,” he adds.

Hundreds of crunches are the answer, right?! Not so much. Jade Jenny, head coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit says, “There are really no exercises to reduce belly fat, unfortunately this is the age-old myth. People think they can get abs, and just abs.” So while crunches won’t erase your belly fat, hours of steady-state cardio also isn’t the best option.
I am shocked at the comments on this website…I have 3 teenage girls and of course they fret about they´re weight as well… Girls, Women, get your asses of the couch and computers.. go exercise and quit eating all the processed crap! Forget carbonated beverages (including diet) they just bloat you. Eat REAL food like apples and Chicken and veggies and exercise a little. Walk to school if you can, walk to ANYPLACE that is within 6 blocks from your house(just don´t hop in the car). Ride a bike and get a grip! There is no Permanant weight loss plan that does not demand something from you. BUT… very small changes can make a big difference. Cut out soda, mcdonalds and sweets and you young girls will feel better and look better. But the less you eat.. the more your body will crave sweets and sugar so eat 5 small meals aday. Please be realistic and take along hard look in the mirror, you may look better than you think!!!!
12. Sweep away flab. Your sidewalk or garage need a good sweeping? Grab a regular broom (not the push type) and go to it, advises Dr. Nagler. The back-and-forth motion is a great ab toner. And don’t forget the dustpan: Bending over works your abs too, mostly when you exhale.
There are many natural ways to reduce fat. Garlic, onion, ginger, cayenne pepper, cabbage, tomato, and spices like cinnamon and mustard are some of the fat reducing foods. Consuming a few cloves of raw garlic and a one-inch piece of ginger every morning is good for fat metabolism.
Hello! After having my son, I began counting calories and working out about 4 times a week. I did lose 20 lbs, but my stomach never got flat. I don’t want to lose too much more weight, but I would like to really get my stomach back flat. What can I do?
This diet book is badly outdated. The diet appears to be all right for those who have 20 pounds or less to lose, and for those people, could be a lifestyle eating plan. The optional exercise plan seems adequate, but not really suited for most people with real lives — you know, those people who don’t have 1-2 hours a day several times a week to devote to exercise. Maybe it would just be better if we were more like the Amish — working physically hard all day and didn’t worry about “exercise”. No …more
I also did the 4 day anti-bloat diet and lost 6 lbs and a total of 4.5, now I am on the 1600 cal a day plan 4 xs a day, 400 cal a meal, eat every 4-5 hours, and have a MUFA at every meal, piece of cake. I will update my review after 28 days and let you know the status!
Sometimes, to whip your body into shape, you have to get a little nutty. While nuts are high in fat, it’s that very fat that makes them such powerful weapons in the war against a ballooning belly. In fact, research from Reina Sofia University Hospital reveals that study participants who consumed a diet rich in monounsaturated fats, like those in nuts, over a 28-day period gained less belly fat than their saturated fat-consuming counterparts while improving their insulin sensitivity.
Try to include some protein in your diet each day such as lean chicken, and lean beef or pork. The best time to eat it would be at dinner time, so that you can burn some of the calories a time when your metabolism starts to slow done for the day.
Even walking can be adjusted for an HIIT workout. Do 3 shorter, fast-paced interval walks (alternating faster walking with a few slower periods) and 2 walks at moderate intensity each week. You will burn 3 to 5 times more visceral (belly) fat. 
Men and women squirrel away fat differently, according to Harris-Pincus. On average, women have six to 11 percent more body fat than men. That extra fat typically gathers lower on the body (especially before they hit menopause) around the hips and thighs, creating a pear-shape. Men, on the other hand, tend to accumulate fat around the belly (hence, the beer gut).
We honestly need some visceral fat surrounding or organs to act like a cushion and protection for them, but most people are packing on way too much and it’s going to give them ore health problems down the line. Even taking skinfold measurements are not going to be able to measure visceral fat and that’s one of the reasons why doing skinfold measurements for body fat percentage isn’t the most effective technique.
According to Julieanna Hever, author of The Vegiterranean Diet, having soup before meals helps reduce the number of calories you consume. This, in turn, helps prevent fat accumulation in the belly region. You must consume vegetable, chicken, or mushroom clear soup. Ideally, make soups at home to reap the maximum benefits.

Carbs are not the enemy. Not whole-grain carbs, that is. People who ate three or more daily servings of whole grains (such as oats) had 10 percent less belly fat than people who ate the same amount of calories from processed white carbs (bread, rice, pasta), according to a Tufts University study. It’s theorized that this is due to whole grains’ high fiber and slow-burn properties, which keep you satiated longer.
Leafy greens like collard greens, watercress, kale, and arugula may not be on your everyday list, but they all contain a compound called sulforaphane. This nutrient has been shown to act directly on the genes that determine “adipocyte differentiation”—basically, turning a stem cell into a fat cell. A healthier intake of the compound means a healthier body weight for you. And just a scant teaspoon of vinaigrette will help your body absorb the fat-soluble nutrients.
