A little off the middle, please.

In news that will shock approximately no one: In a Women's Health survey, women worldwide revealed that, of all their body parts, they're most insecure about their midsection.

Though healthy bellies come in all shapes and sizes, we know that the fat that lies deep within your abdomen (the kind you can't pinch between your fingers) is the worst kind, since it promotes inflammation and can be hard on your heart.

But a shocking number of women still have it - even the seemingly fit.

Good news is, you don't need a six-pack to be healthy! Simple changes can target this freaky fat.

So we talked to Travis Stork, M.D., author of The Lose Your Belly Diet, and snagged his best tips to keep your tum in great shape.

Eat Almonds

Almonds are a satisfying, fiber-rich choice, and a recent study showed that people who ate them daily lost more abdominal fat than those who didn't.

Lift Weights At Least Three Times Per Week

Resistance training at least three days a week can help you burn more fat, including in your belly, since muscle revs your metabolism. But don't knock moderate exercise either.

Sticking to a routine is most important for weight management overall, so pick something you enjoy—jogging, brisk walking, whatever - and make it a habit.

See some of the craziest diets people have actually used to lose weight.
