#4. Prep your protein
Increasing your intake is one of the simplest things you can do to fight belly fat in the first weeks of a new plan. Since protein often isn’t as quick to prepare as some other foods, consider prepping it in advance and keeping options in the fridge for when you’re pressed for time. Hard-boiling some eggs or cooking some chicken breast can make for an easy on-the-go snack or instant bagged lunch.
