My two favorite “waist whittling” ingredients are jalapeños and bok choy. Jalapeños pack a powerful nutritional punch, with notable amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A. These little peppers derive their heat from a natural plant compound called capsaicin, which offers powerful health benefits such as reducing inflammation and decreasing hard-to-lose belly fat. And because bok choy is loaded with fiber, essential nutrients and is so low in calories, it’s a perfect natural diet aid when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off!
