As far as how to burn fat, first thing’s first: Consuming fat and sugar are bad for you.

But what’s really interesting is the new research on how they conspire with your genes to set you up for weight gain.

Researchers believe it’s because the wrong balance of foods causes our fat storage genes to turn on.

But in a test panel for Zero Belly Diet, subjects lost up to 16 pounds in 14 days just by reducing saturated fats and sugars while increasing their levels of certain foods that deactivate fat genes.
