There is evidence that protein is particularly effective against belly fat.[3] Research has shown that a higher consumption of better quality protein consumed is associated with less belly fat.[4]

One study showed that a higher consumption of animal protein over a period of 5 years was associated with a significantly reduced risk of gaining belly fat.

What to do: Increase your protein to carb ratio intake. Eat healthier free range meat, poultry and eggs. If you are vegetarian, incorporate complete protein sources into your diet such as rice and beans, quinoa, buckwheat and chickpeas.
