Surprising Foods That Burn Belly Fat, From Joel Harper (VIDEO)

Did you know that certain foods could help burn belly fat? Celebrity fitness trainer Joel Harper had some great suggestions for gut-busting snacks.

First, Joel recommends eating raspberries, as their belly fat-burning abilities have been proven to work. If raspberries are not in season or difficult to find in your neighborhood, Joel suggests taking a raspberry supplement -- called ketones -- instead. "My celebrity client Dr. Oz takes these," Joel told us.

Another belly fat-burning snack is watermelon, since its high water content helps fill you up faster. Who would have known that these tasty fruits could be so helpful to our waistlines?
