What it is: Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the body can’t digest.
The belly-flattening science: Fiber-rich foods are typically low in calories, but keep you feeling full, longer. Fiber also helps maintain an even blood-sugar level, which helps prevent you from overeating during meal times. A study from the University of Southern California found that study participants who added 6 grams more fiber to their diet every day helped shrink their belly fat by 4 percent.
Foods to choose: Whole grain foods, nuts and seeds, avocados, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, raspberries, pears, and apples.
