Turmeric Flushes Fat Fast!

Tags:

An easy strategy to help you melt fat fast (up to 6 pounds in 7 days!)—plus keep lost pounds from creeping back onto your frame, even as you indulge in treats: Increase your intake of turmeric. This super spice contains _curcumin, _a compound that calms fat-promoting inflammation in the gut and shrinks fat cells. The result: Researchers at Tufts University in Massachusetts found that turmeric can decrease fat stores by 43 percent in just 12 weeks.

It only takes 1 tsp. of turmeric per day to get the benefits, so it’s easy to sneak into your diet. Its peppery flavor lends itself to a variety of dishes from savory to sweet—you can mix it into green smoothies, stir it into tuna or use it to season steak or salmon. Or if you prefer a supplement, try Life Extension Super Bio-Curcumin ($38 for 60 capsules, LEF.org).
