As far as how to burn fat, first thing's first: Consuming fat and sugar are bad for you.

But what’s really interesting is the new research on how they conspire with your genes to set you up for weight gain.

Foods high in saturated fats seem to cause weight gain even if calorie intake stays the same.

Researchers believe it's because the wrong balance of foods causes our fat storage genes to turn on.
