2. Fat-burning Formula for Your Butt

Due to genetics, some people are more prone to store fat in their rear end, which from an evolutionary standpoint served to provide insulation and protection. If you have this body type, your butt is the first place you gain weight and the last place you lose it. To burn fat fast, try:

  • Chitosan and whey protein smoothie, twice a day

Made from the exoskeleton (the outer shell) of certain shellfish, chitosan, referred to by some manufacturers as “the fat magnet,” serves as a dietary fiber that can actually inhibit fats from getting absorbed into the intestinal wall so they don’t get into your body and settle in your buttocks.

Whey protein is a fat-free source of amino acids, which stimulate growth hormones to help your body burn fat and build lean muscle mass, particularly targeting the large muscles in your behind to help make it appear smaller.

To burn butt fat, drink a Chitosan and Whey Protein Smoothie at both breakfast and lunch for 7 days. For the complete recipe, click here. 

3. Fat-burning Formula for Your Arms

Flabby upper arms, also referred to as “bat wings” can be a trouble spot for many women. Fat deposits stored here tend to be concentrated in this area because your body wants to keep them as energy reserves. To lose stubborn fat in your upper arm area, consume the following every day for 1 week:

  • 6 cups of parsley tea daily
  • 3 sweet potatoes, 1 at every meal

Parsley contains powerful antioxidants, has diuretic effects, and may help balance hormones that otherwise allow you to store fat in certain body areas such as your arms.

Drinking parsley in tea form promotes satiety so you feel full. Parsley tea is available at natural food stores and online.
