Knowledge is Power
Men's Health puts it pretty well:
"Exercising to lose your gut is simple—it's all about your muscles. Let us explain: Contracting your muscles requires fuel, like an engine does. So the more muscles you work, the more calories you burn. This is one reason why the best way to lose your gut is with total-body weight training. But that's just the start: Since pumping iron also builds muscle, you're simultaneously increasing the size of your engine—which helps you burn even more calories in each workout. Plus, lifting weights boosts your metabolism for hours after you train."
