Munching on a chocolate bar, indulging in a glass of wine each night and watching a funny TV show can help people to lose weight fast.
This is according to a new list of secrets to shredding pounds which has been detailed by Good Morning America and Reader's Digest.
According to the researchers, eating chocolate which has more cocoa than sugar releases antioxidants into the body which can fight against excessive fat.
Meanwhile, drinking wine in moderation has been highlighted as a fat-releasing agent, so one glass a night could help weight loss regimes substantially.
When it comes to hitting the gym, Good Morning America and Reader's Digest suggested that interval training can do more good than running on a treadmill for hours on end.
Even sitting down and laughing at a TV show for half an hour can burn just as much calories as what a short gym session can achieve.
Stress should also be avoided when trying to lose weight, as a recent Fruitdrop survey found that 80 per cent of British workers will opt for junk food when they begin to feel the strain.
