Belly Fat

Visceral fat forms between your organs and can lead to chronic inflammation which in turn puts you at a higher risk for heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. There are many ways to fight belly fat, but this one is relatively simple…When people are low in calcium they produce a hormone that tells the body to store more visceral fat. Just six ounces of low fat Greek yoghurt contains almost 20% of the calcium needed each day and is a great way to help keep those levels from dipping too low. One yoghurt certainly won’t make belly fat disappear, but it can be part of an over-all wellness plan! If you wrap a measuring tape around your midsection, at the top of your hipbones, and you measure greater than 35 inches (I’m assuming that’s for women only), it may be time to make some adjustments to stay healthy.  (Dr. Oz for Oprah.com)
