Exercises to Bust Butt Fat


Walk in the Morning

People who carry weight below the belt have a slower metabolism. A 10-minute walk around the block is all you need to get your heart pumping right away.

Do the Power Pretzel

Extra weight from butt fat can make waking painful since it puts pressure on the hips and throws off your stride. Try the power pretzel:

Sitting on the floor, bend one leg over the other. Twist your upper body, reaching around with the opposite arm and pushing on your knee. Try to look behind you. Hold for 10 seconds, then switch sides.


Fat Flushers


Unbleached Coffee Filters

People with big bellies often have high cholesterol. When making coffee, use unbleached paper coffee filters to flush out a dangerous compound called cafestol which has been linked to high cholesterol. Even if your coffee filter comes with a mesh filter, use an unbleached paper one as well.


Compression Socks

People who carry weight in their lower body can have problems with water retention and are prone to varicose veins. Compression socks help to get rid of extra fluid and improve circulation, which is essential to weight loss. Wear them 2-5 times a week. Available at sporting goods stores for about $8 a pair.
