Let's be honest you clicked on the link because that extra tire you're holding onto needs to go. 

Nothing is going to help you faster than a healthy diet, exercise, and discipline.

But who are we kidding life gets too hectic and you just don't have time to fit it all in and stay on the course.

So here are some FAST FAT BURNING BELLY FACTS that you can start today.

 

1. EAT MORE PROTEIN

About 25%-30% of the calories in each gram of protein are burned in digestion, compared to only 6%-8% of the calories in carbs. Do the math: You save 41 calories every time you substitute 50 grams of protein for an equal amount of carbs.

2. READ LABELS

Avoid foods with "high-fructose corn syrup" in the ingredients list. Since 1971, consumption of this sugar substitute—which is used to sweeten soda, commercial baked goods, and even condiments—has increased more than 350% in the U.S., paralleling the rise in obesity.

3. EMBRACE YARDWORK

View any type of physical activity—even those you try to avoid, such as mowing the lawn—as a chance to burn fat and condition your body. (Just make sure you use a push mower.)

4. CUT CARBS

Yes, you've heard it a zillion times. The reason: It works. In just one of many recent studies, a Journal of Nutrition report found that men who reduced their carb intake to just 8% of their daily calories lost seven pounds of fat and gained two pounds of muscle in six weeks.

5. DON'T BE A COUCH POTATO

If you're a TV junkie, add up the number of hours you watch right now, and cut out all reruns—even if there's an episode of Seinfeld on you've never seen. Spend the time you save on your feet: outdoors or in the gym.
