Dr. Oz’s Rapid Belly Melt Plan

Raise your hand if you’d like a flatter stomach? Okay, everyone put your hands down. Dr. Oz’s Rapid Belly Melt plan could help you fry stubborn belly fat and make that pooch disappear for good so you can finally have show-off abs. Just follow these three simple steps.

Torch Visceral Fat

Your body has different types of fat and some are more dangerous than others. Subcutaneous fat is that soft, squishy fat you see and can feel when you poke a finger in your belly. Visceral fat is a specific type of dangerous belly fat found deep below the skin’s surface, often surrounding the organs. Hidden visceral fat could be the reason you can’t lose belly fat. Visceral fat is biologically active, like a factory churning out hormones and inflammation that help keep us fat and contribute to other health problems. When you eat what Dr. Oz calls “carbage”– junk carbs that contain sugar and refined flours–you’re fueling the creation of this deep, dangerous belly fat.

What to do:
Fight hidden belly fat by ditching “carbage” and using blood sugar-stabilizing spices at every meal. Consume a 1/2 teaspoon of one of these spices at every meal: cinnamon, clove, oregano, cayenne, or turmeric. Use cinnamon and clove at breakfast by adding a dash to coffee or oatmeal, and sprinkle the savory ones on your salads, sandwiches, and main dishes the rest of the day for a flavorful seasoning that can help fry belly fat.
