Everything I have read (and my doctors have told me) says aerobic style exercises will help remove the belly fat. In addition, I've been doing those dreaded sit-ups and crunches. Although that doesn't remove the fat, it does tighten up the belly so fat doesn't sit out as far, plus it helps with my posture.
I have had weight issues for years and recently found that my Thyroid was "slow" so my Dr. put me on Synthroid. I decided to change everything about my eating habits so I gave up Beer, Bread, Potatoes, Cheese and all red meat. I eat lots of fruits and veggies now far more than I ever ate before. I'm always full no starving at all and I have lost over eighty pounds in less than a year. By the time I'm done I plan to be down even more. I weigh every day and keep an excel chart of my weight loss. Doing this I have learned that Potatoes are extremely fattening for me. God I love them though. lol
Kathy is right, a good cleansing once or twice a year does wonders for body, not just the tummy, but one feels much better.
I guess again Ellen I am in a minority.
All these suggestion on eating and exercise are good but I am lazy. I did mine the old fashion way, lipo, lipo, LIPO. I lipo suctioned everything at least once, legs, arms, bra fat (twice), waist (three times), and flanks (twice).
And the gall of the doctor, he said I should cut back on my eating.
Which reminds me, I need to call for another lipo appointment tomorrow.
I have had great results on a Ketogenic diet (low carb less than 20g/day).
