Christmas, New Year and the hundreds of wedding activities that go around winter season leave us with a hell lot of unhealthy eating and some unwanted, stubborn inches.

3. Ghee

Even though this might feel impossible, don’t feel shocked and attacked. Most people believe ghee or clarified butter is absolutely fattening and not to be touched when trying to loose weight but research shows that ghee consists of an essential type of omega - 6 fatty acid and soluble vitamins which help burn stubborn fat when consumed in a small amount, preferably one tea spoon everyday.

Now we are not vouching for the products you find in container cans from supermarkets but what we can say is pure homemade ghee that is extracted from cow’s milk works wonders to help reduce the excess belly fat you hate.
