Fol­low your heart to show your waist some love. A ticker-friendly diet high in fi­bre and low in sat­u­rated fat is a kick-arse way to ward off and re­duce belly fat, re­ports a new pa­per in the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fit­ness Jour­nal. So, that means a tick for ve­g­ies and legumes. “In­de­pen­dent of body weight, a larger waist cir­cum­fer­ence in­creases risk for car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease, di­a­betes and meta­bolic syn­drome,” writes au­thor and di­eti­tian Kari D. Pilolla. It’s a healthy move all-round.
