Latest study on burning belly fat!

9-2-11: Here's a good study by researchers at Duke Univ. on what burns belly fat (i.e. visceral fat) the best! Check it out here.

Bottomline: doing about 12 miles of aerobic activity a week, either moderate or vigorous intensity, seemed to be the key dosage of aerobic activity for effective belly fat burning.

Did strength training burn belly fat? Hardly...but they did say that people she still DO strength training because it helps to preserve lean fat free mass, which in turns help you to do the aerobic activity.

So doing both aerobic and strength training (i.e. anaerobic) exercises are important if you want to burn of the excess fat and tone up!
