Belly fat is not only unsightly, it's deadly; it has been linked to a long list of adverse health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and breast cancer. "Prevention'"s "Flat Belly Diet, " a revolutionary plan that's already helped more than one million people lose weight around their middles, may help target dangerous belly fat with monounsaturated fats (better known as MUFAs) found in delicious foods like nuts and seeds, vegetable oils, olives, avocados, and dark chocolate.
