So if you think you know the drill on getting a good body, let me tell you one thing, we aren’t after good; we aim for great. Here are the 8 tips for getting rid of that extra fat and to prevent it from returning.
Start you engine early

Power your meals with Protein
Increasing protein intake will increase your metabolism and would help in maintaining muscle mass, all of which will result in faster fat-burning.
Train with weights
Running might burn more calories than one-hour strength training but weight training causes you to burn calories days after the work out is over.
Stay on move
The leanest people on earth move around a lot more than those with average or above average body fats. It simply means that if you have to work for a full time desk job, you got to work out more than an hour three days a week. Try to stand and move up and around- take stairs instead of elevator and make those coffee and lunch breaks useful by taking a brisk walk around the building or block.
