You’ve spent hours at the gym and done so many crunches you’ve lost count, but you might feel like you haven’t made much progress with your weight loss — especially when it comes to your belly. What gives?
Magazines boasting the “10 Best Exercises to Blast Belly Fat” are great and all, but they may not be addressing a key part of weight loss: Your diet. The good news is, you don’t need to spend an eternity on an ab machine. Your diet can play an important role in your efforts to lose weight, but knowing where to start is a great first step.
Watching your portion sizes and eating more nutritious foods could help you cut back on abdominal fat. And some, as it turns out, might be better at the job than others.
