Maybe this New Year you will be looking to drop the pounds. What’s the best new way to burn fat according to The New York Times?

According to a new study from Belgium, exercising before breakfast is the best thing you can do to burn fat. I thought this was odd at first because I’ve always been taught to make sure you have eaten before exercising. Not right before, but not do anything on an empty stomach.

Researchers had young men consume a diet of 50 percent fat and 30 percent more calories than they had been previously eating. Then, they had those guys working out before breakfast and found that they gained no weight. So picture this, these guys were pigging out, but because they worked out before breakfast, AND they were able to get away with it. Maybe this will be my new diet plan!
