YOGURT

Yoghurt probably seems like more of a standalone food, but don’t be fooled. Yoghurt can easily be incorporated into everything from soups to salads and even marinades. It can add a tasty, rich flavor to a meal, as well as help to shrink your waistline! 

Diets rich in dairy have been shown to be effective in reducing body fat, especially in the midsection (in part, due to calcium’s crucial role in regulating how fat is stored and broken down by the body).
Dairy products are also rich in the amino acid arginine, which has been shown to help promote fat loss and increase muscle mass. So, start incorporating more yoghurt in your diet today!

RED WINE
Alcohol is an integral part of many celebrations, but it’s also packed full of excess calories that can pack on the pounds. When you’re drinking alcohol, your best option is red wine because it’s rich in Resveratrol

High levels of estrogen in your body promote increased fat storage, so suppressing them may decrease body fat while helping to increase lean muscle mass. Keep alcohol in moderation, with no more than one glass per day for women and two glasses per day for men.

SWEET POTATOES

Sweet potatoes are packed full of vitamin C. When the stress hormone Cortisol is chronically elevated in the body, you can experience increased fat storage in the abdominal area.

However, research has shown that vitamin C helps reduce stress levels and return the stress hormone Cortisol to normal levels after a stressful situation. This reduction in Cortisol may help to prevent increased belly fat storage. So, mash them, bake them, or even make baked sweet potato fries to gain the benefits!
