There is no true magic bullet when it comes to belly fat. But research shows filling your plate with foods that fight abdominal fat—as part of an overall healthy diet—can help.

Salads are a great way to eat more veggies, but greens alone do not make a satisying meal. They'll just leave you feeling hungry. Say "bye-bye" to wimpy greens and "hello" to healthy proteins to power up your salad. Protein-rich foods like chicken, eggs and chickpeas can beef up even the simplest base of leafy greens. Protein helps to build muscles and sticks around long after you've eaten to help you feel full and energized. High-protein diets have been linked to lower BMIs and smaller waists.
