WORLD­WIDE OBE­SITY RANK­ING: 50 WHAT THEY DO: SKYR THINGS UP

WHY IT WORKS: Skyr, a thick, plain yo­gurt, is an Ice­landic sta­ple. It’s packed with pro­tein yet low in sugar, which is a combo that bodes well for your belly and sets a high bar for other yo­gurts. That’s be­cause pro­tein is the most sa­ti­at­ing macronu­tri­ent, says Men’s Health nu­tri­tion ad­vi­sor Alan Aragon, M.S.. Bonus: skyr packs in a lot of of cal­cium. When com­bined with pro­tein, cal­cium helps with mus­cle preser­va­tion.

STEAL IT: Sports nu­tri­tion­ist Marie Spano, R.D., C.S.C.S., sug­gests a daily skyr snack. Try Siggi’s plain, which has 17 grams of pro­tein in 100 calo­ries. Eat two if you weigh more than 90kg. And toss in ⅔ cup of berries, Aragon says.
