Food just doesn't discriminate by body part. "Companies will claim that certain foods target belly fat because it sounds better, but it's a total myth," says Anna Renderer, a performance trainer and outside fitness expert for the Gatorade Sports Science Institute. "There are definitely foods that can help you lose weight, such as fiber-rich dark, leafy vegetables and citrus fruits. But eating lots of these foods will help you lean out overall, not just in the stomach region."
