3. Lift a lot of weights
Want to see the fat really fall off? Train with weights. Lifting is a crucial component to get results, and according to a recent study published in the journal Obesity, it’s more effective for maintaining a flat stomach than cardio.

After they analyzed which activities had the greatest effect on their waistlines over a 12-year period, they found the answer to fending off stomach fat.
