Movement is an important part of getting and staying healthy. Learn about some dance moves that can help you burn stubborn, sneaky fat in this video with Dr. Oz and Stepp Stewart.

Any exercise that helps create a caloric deficit for the day will help to burn fat. You must burn an additional 3500 calories (in excess of what you eat) to burn 1 pound of body fat. There are certain activities that may help you reach this goal faster than others. Interval training and circuit training are examples of exercises that help raise your metabolism even after your exercise is complete, which is why I recommend them for people who have had trouble shedding stubborn body fat.

It is not about single exercises... You will burn stubborn body fat by using your whole body, doing strength and cardio training. Start by moving more and incorporating whole body exercises. At the same time, no amount of exercise will get you to the fittest you unless you have a balanced diet with proper amount of whole living foods and proteins.
