One sure way to zap belly fat is to increase the amount of soluble fibre you consume, says Jessica Crandall, a registered dietitian nutritionist and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Foods that are rich in soluble fiber include oats, nuts, beans, and berries.

You should aim for 25-35 grams per day, especially if you’re diabetic. Soluble fiber does a much better job controlling your blood sugar than carbs, like a piece of bread, which can make your blood sugar spike then drop.
