Your Top 10 Superfoods: The Drop 10 Diet is loaded with powerful superfoods that are scientifically proven to slim. Load up your plate with these proven pound melters, some of the brightest stars of SELF's new book, The Drop 10 Diet. Here's why yogurt made our list: Lowfat and nonfat Greek and regular yogurts contain 20 percent or more of your daily calcium needs. The mineral slows production of cortisol, a hormone that encourages belly-flab buildup.
