FACT CHECKED BY Alexa Mellardo

Are you longing to trim inches off your waistline and tone things up? If that's the case, you're certainly not alone. There are plenty of programs out there claiming to help you shed fat in a short amount of time. But in reality, there are no super-quick fixes when it comes to losing belly fat. You can start to lose belly fat in seven days with this workout, and achieve the results you are looking for by sticking to it as a new routine.

The best way to accomplish your end goal is to focus on the fundamentals, which means eating a healthy diet that includes soluble fiber, performing strength training, and getting in your cardio on a regular basis. When you are diligent with these three steps, you will start to see your waistline shrink down.

One additional step you can add to your fitness routine is a bodyweight circuit. The reason why these are an excellent addition to your workout is they can be done wherever you are. Bodyweight work is also an amazing way to burn muscle and burn additional calories. Hence, you will reach your goal quicker! I recommend performing them at least two to three times a week, either as a finisher after one of your sessions or as a standalone workout.

Want to start to lose belly fat in seven days? Perform the following bodyweight movements back to back in a circuit fashion, aiming for 3 to 4 sets total.
