11/Organic chocolate milk
0rganic chocolate milk may seem like a sweet indulgence, but it’s actually an ideal weight-loss beverage. The calcium can help melt belly fat; a study in the journal Diabetes Care found that when diabetics supplemented their diet with dairy calcium, it helped them shed weight. And the old wives’ tale is true: a glass of organic chocolate milk makes people sleepy, thanks to the tryptophan. Just be sure to choose a brand that doesn’t have too much added sugar or use high fructose corn syrup as an ingredient.
