Whittle Your Middle: Black Tea
If not kept under control, the stress hormone cortisol can lead to excess glucose production, which your body then converts into fat. Studies have shown that, in addition to enhancing positive moods, black tea reduces cortisol levels. So stop belly fat before it starts by drinking four cups of black tea daily. If you’re worried about your caffeine levels, you can drink decaf tea instead. Additionally, you can seek out tea infused with rhodiola, an herb that further reduces stress hormones. Getting rid of belly fat and stress? Now that’s a winning combination.

Stabilize Your Curves: Soy
By eating soy at every meal, your body can actually direct fat to be stored in your curves, rather than your belly. Soy contains phytoestrogens, which help regulate estrogen activity and distribute fat in a way that will leave you curvaceous rather than rotund. These days, you’ll find soy in a variety of different forms. Stick to the most natural, least processed version you can find, such as soy nuts or low-sodium miso soup.
