Combat fat! Your allies in battling bulge? Foods that do the work for you. These edibles have proven lipid-melting powers that help you slim. That’s a win. By Veronica Byrd
Almonds
Almond joy! Dieters who ate 3 ounces of these nuts every day reduced their weight and body-mass index by a solid 18 percent compared with an 11 percent drop in the no-nut group, a study in the International Journal of Obesity found. Almonds are high in alpha-linolenic acid, which can speed the metabolism of fats. Stick to 12 per serving.
Berries
Vitamin C–loaded fruit such as strawberries and raspberries can help you sizzle up to 30 percent more fat during exercise, suggests research from Arizona State University at Mesa. Blend a vinaigrette of 1 cup berries and ¼ cup balsamic vinegar.
Cinnamon
This spice could make your waistline nice. Sprinkling ¼ teaspoon on your food may prevent a postmeal insulin spike—this increase normally occurs after you eat and “signals the body that it should store fat rather than burn it,” explains Lauren Slayton, R.D., of New York City. Add a dash to your oatmeal, yogurt or coffee.
Mustard
The spice that gives mustard its color, turmeric, may slow the growth of fat tissues, a study in the journal Endocrinology notes. Eighty-six mayo in favor of any mustard; sprinkle turmeric on cauliflower and roast for a tangy side.
Oranges
Prevent pound creep with this citrus star: It contains fat-torching compounds called flavones. Women who ate the most flavones had a significantly lower increase in body fat over a 14-year period, a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition finds. Snack on slices or drink freshly squeezed OJ (with pulp!) for the biggest payback.Related: 30 foods that fight fat!
Soybeans
These green gems are rich in choline, a compound that blocks fat absorption and breaks down fatty deposits. Add ½ cup edamame to a salad.
Sweet potatoes
Trade up to sweet taters. They’re high in fiber, which means no drastic insulin jumps and thus less fat packed onto your hips. Bake a small sweet potato—think of two bars of soap as a portion size—and top with a dollop of lowfat or nonfat cottage cheese.
Swiss cheese
Holy cow: “Calcium-rich foods reduce fat-producing enzymes and increase fat breakdown,” says Michael B. Zemel, Ph.D., director of the Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Put toe to toe with some of its cheesy counterparts, Swiss is a heavy hitter in the calcium department; layer a slice on a lunchtime sandwich, or stack some on high-fiber crackers.

Makan Pagi

Cottage cheese
"It's the perfect breakfast because it keeps me full until lunch," says Melody Abedinejad, 22, of Weston, Massachusetts. "I lost 40 pounds in 10 weeks!"
Why it works Cottage cheese has whey protein, which releases hormones that tell your brain when you've had enough to eat, says Dave Grotto, R.D., of Chicago. Look for lowfat versions, which have 80 calories and 1 gram of fat per 1/2 cup.

Egg whites
"I eat them every day," says Jennifer Ruff, 36, of New York City. "I throw in a little cheese for flavor."
Why they work The amino acids in egg whites help build lean muscle that may in turn help rev metabolism. Lowfat cheese will curb calorie creep.

Oatmeal
"I'd often pour a second bowl of cold cereal. So now I cook oatmeal—if I want more, it's not as easy," says Ana Mantica, 24, of New York City. "In six months, I lost two dress sizes."
Why it works Plain oatmeal has no added sugar and keeps blood sugar steady. Make it tastier with a dash of cinnamon and chopped nuts.

Makan Tengahari

Sushi
"It's low-calorie, filling and something I can order on a date that doesn't scream 'I'm watching my figure,'" says Shira Kallus, 29, of New York City.
Why it works A piece of sushi has 30 to 40 calories and plenty of satiating protein. Skip rolls that are fried or are made with mayo.

Peanut butter
"I spread it on light bread, and it sticks with me until dinner," says Christina Sarracino, 30, of San Francisco. "This lunch helped me lose 90 pounds."
Why it works "Peanut butter has satisfying healthy fats," says Kathy McManus, R.D., director of nutrition at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. Watch portions, though: Two tablespoons have 190 calories.

Beans
I started eating beans to replace red meat. They're great when you're craving something with substance," says Amy Balestier, 34, of Hoboken, New Jersey.
Why it works You can't beat beans—they're only about 150 calories per 1/2 cup and full of protein, fiber and antioxidants. Toss your faves into soups, salads and chili.

Fat-free plain yogurt
"I stir it into tuna salad instead of mayonnaise. It tastes and feels similar," says Ashley Liu, 26, of New York City.
Why it works The yogurt has fewer than 10 calories per tablespoon, versus 90 in regular mayo. Mix in mustard to create a spicy Dijonaise.

Lemon
"Whenever my pants are tight, I use lemon to help me drop a couple of pounds," says Alonna Friedman, 32, of New York City. "I squeeze it on spinach salad, grilled chicken, fish and veggies."
Why it works Citrus is so fresh and tangy that you may come to prefer it to fatty butter and dressings that mask foods' natural flavors.


Snack

Energy bars
"I love small energy bars like Pria, which, at around 110 calories, are my chocolate fix," says Kelly Winter, 33, of New York City. "I snacked on one every afternoon instead of a candy bar, and I lost 5 pounds in four weeks
