Working on your abs? Almonds can be your new secret weapon. Packed with protein, "good" fat, fiber, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, these powerful little nuts can help you feel full, build muscle, and stabilize your blood sugar. Studies suggest that almonds may help reduce the secretion of insulin, a hormone that contributes to belly fat. Try the unsalted variety -- for most people, it's easier to avoid eating too many without all that delicious salt. Also, too much salt may cause water retention and bloating, both of which are enemies of great abs.
