Doing crunches until the cows come home? Stop it! When you're down to your final inches of belly fat, the dreaded crunch won't be the exercise that finally reveals your six-pack. "You can't spot reduce," Jill says. Instead, she suggests doing functional exercises that use the muscles in your core—abdominals, back, pelvic, obliques—as well as other body parts.

Before we answer those questions, it’s important to understand how fuel (carbs, fat and protein) is transformed into energy and in which cases they are stored as fuel. To be used by our cells, the different types of fuel must go through several stages of transformation to become the one and only form of “usable” energy: adenosine triphosphate — more commonly referred to as ATP. ATP is the universal energy currency for many living organisms from mammals to insects and fungus to plants.
