Visceral fat: Avoid microwavable popcorn, vegetable oils and baked goods to burn belly fat

Baked goods such as muffins, cakes, pastries, and pies are often made with vegetable shortening or margarine.

Vegetable shortening helps produce a flakier, softer pastry. It’s also cheaper and has a longer shelf life than butter or lard.

Until recently, both vegetable shortening and margarine were made from partially hydrogenated oils.

For this reason, baked goods have traditionally been a common source of trans fat.
