7 Ways to Burn Fat Without Touching a Weight

No heavy lifting is required to drop those unwanted pounds.

Long periods without food punctuated by small windows in which to eat big is the core of the intermittent fasting trend. By lengthening the time between meals (anywhere from 12 to even 24 hours), you can elevate your insulin sensitivity and burn more fat.
