Post image for Need to Lose Those Last Few Pounds? Try This!

Are you on a diet? Thankfully, people are starting to take their health more seriously, focusing more on eating nutritiously and incorporating physical activities into their daily routine.

According to Shape.com, there are some last resort diet tricks to help shed that last 3-5 pounds:

1. Lose belly fat by eating more fiber. Fiber soaks up water and stimulates the digestive system to contract and push waster through faster.
2. Include healthy bacteria in your diet. Yogurt or kefir have probiotics that can help you lose weight.
3. Pump up the vitamin C. Vitamin C helps utilize your fat for energy, which makes your fat burn rather than using your muscle mass.
