The 4 Simple Rules To Follow To Lose Belly Fat

February 13, 2014 2 min read

If you want to get serious about losing weight and fat, it's time to update your thinking about nutrition. In the '80s and '90s, as Americans embraced "I Can’t Believe It's Not Butter" and sugary low-fat snack packs, obesity doubled. As David Katz, founder of Yale University's Prevention Research Center, says, "There is more than one way to eat badly, and our culture is committed to exploring them all." If you haven't already, go ahead and stop buying foods labeled "fat-free." Here is some more wisdom from the top nutritional experts in the US: Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 4.49.55 PM Throw out the low-fat foods in your kitchen. You can go back to eating full-fat peanut butter (the low-fat variety swaps some of the fat for sugar—a trade-off we now know may be worse) and topping your salad with olive oil and vinegar. Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 4.52.58 PM …with the exception of dairy. Ditch fat-free dairy (especially yogurts that trade fat for sugar—some brands have as much as ice cream). Low-fat dairy is still a good bet, delivering the same calcium and protein for dramatically less saturated fat and fewer calories than the full-fat stuff. Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 4.53.07 PM Make like the Greeks And eat plenty of foods loaded with polyunsaturated fats. Research shows that eating polyunsaturated fats leads to gaining less fat and more muscle, compared to eating saturated fats. You know the deal: polyunsaturated fats are the ones in nuts, seeds, and fish. Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 4.53.15 PM Go for balance "It's all about making informed choices based on your personal preferences," says Gretchen Vannice, a registered dietitian nutritionist and the author of Omega-3 Handbook. "If you eat bacon a lot, you might choose low-fat yogurt for balance. What you don’t want to do is eat bacon and cheese and butter and ice cream and sausage and mayonnaise all in one day."
