How to Lose Belly Fat: Latest Secrets from the Research Labs, Part 1
by David L. Kern

Abdominal fat, also known as visceral fat, or belly fat, is not
just a matter of vanity anymore. Doctors are increasingly
sounding the alarm about the health dangers of belly fat, as more
Americans are diagnosed daily with obesity, diabetes, and high
cholesterol.

How to Lose Belly Fat: Secret #1- CLA

Scientists in Sweden have reported that patients taking
conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA for short, lose fat- especially
abdominal or belly fat. CLA is a special type of fatty acid, and
is available in the U.S. without prescription.

In a 2001 trial, people taking 4 grams of CLA a day lost nearly
4% of their body fat over 12 weeks, with no other dietary or
exercise changes.

Another Swedish study in 2004 found that CLA "might slightly
decrease body fat in humans, particularly abdominal fat," without
changing body mass index. No harmful side effects were reported.

A 2004 review study on weight loss supplements from Creighton
University Medical Center reported that "results for conjugated
linoleic acid were positive in three clinical studies, with few
adverse effects."

A 4% reduction of fat may not sound like much, but its importance
for your health can be profound. Doctors at Laval University in
Quebec, who specialize in the study of abdominal fat, say that
even a 5% to 10% reduction in belly fat can reduce your risk of
diabetes and heart disease by as much as 60%.

While CLA may not be the cure for belly fat all by itself, it is
certainly one way to target belly fat loss. In combination with
some (or all) of the other powerful, proven methods I will share
with you in this series, it could make a profound difference for
your waistline- and your health.
