You can get rid of that roll of belly fat by eating yogurt and cheese, and drinking milk. According to a study, if you eat 3 cups of yogurt a day for 12 weeks, you can lose more weight than one would on calcium pills and reduced calories. Fat cells manufacture their own cortisol which stimulates the development of more belly fat, but yogurt hinders this development. These dairy foods also contain linoleic acid which gets rid of belly fat.

If cutting calories is your only weight-loss strategy, you'll need to keep your calories low for a very long time to ensure that you don't gain the weight back. Many people justify this, telling themselves "it's worth it and I'll just adjust to eating less." Unfortunately, research shows that you don't adjust to eating less and that even after a year of calorie restriction, one of your hunger hormones, grehlin, is as high as ever, making you as hungry as the first day you set out on your lean body journey.
