Burn more fat

By Kasia Kurek

Add a vinegar-based dressing to your next salad. A 2009 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistryfound that mice fed acetic acid (the main component in household vinegar) and a high-fat diet developed up to 10 percent less body fat than those that weren’t consuming acetic acid.
Get sour: Other studies suggest that acetic acid may also help regulate blood pressure and blood sugar.

Check your allergies. Hidden allergies or sensitivities to even the cleanest foods can derail your fat loss by causing inflammation in your body, according to a 2009 study out of Dubai. If you’re not seeing results despite your healthy lifestyle, ask your doctor for an allergy test.
Get proactive: Allergic to peanut butter? The March 2010 issue ofOxygen has fat-burning alternatives on page 82.
