EAT THIS: GREEK YOGURT
Besides being packed with 23 grams of muscle-building protein per cup, Greekyogurt is rich with calcium and probiotics, both of which can help reveal your six-pack, says Spano.
In one European Journal of Clinical Nutrition study, people who drank a fermented milk beverage with probiotics every day lost a significant amount of abdominal fat that hangs out between your muscles and organs.
However, those who didn’t drink up lost zero stomach fat.
To get the most out of your yogurt, make sure yours says that it contains “live and active cultures” right on the label.
And stay away from the flavored varieties.
Their sugar can both spur belly fat and fluid retention around your midsection, says registered dietitian Cassandra Forsythe, Ph.D., R.D., C.S.C.S., Girls Gone Strong advisory board member.
