Question: I'm average size. I'm a bit curvy, but not too much. Perfectly skinny in my waist. I am skinny, but the thing is I have a bit of tummy poking out. You can't notice it in my shirts but I feel too self conscious to wear a crop top now. I need you to answer these questions: 1. Any exercises? If so, what and how? How long to do them and how frequently? 2. Any foods? If so, which ones and what serving size? 3. Any dieting required? If so, describe the diet. 4. How long is this going to take? How to get a flat stomach?

Remove simple carbs from your diet completely and eat more leafy green vegetables. Many Fruits and vegetables have higher concentrations of sugars, so stick to "Leafy" Greens and stay away from "Root" crops" (Potatoes, carrots, beets, etc) all together. As to serving sizes, read labels and see for yourself. Hands on experience is needed here for a "Reality Check" on exactly what a serving size is and (Looks like). There is a simple, basic method to follow to burn stored "Fat". Eat a banana or other easily digested food and after approximately 1/2 an hour go for an "up-tempo" walk. Then after 15 minutes (The time it takes the body to burn off the banana) begin a slow jog or other activity that will keep your heart in a target rate zone around 140-145 bbm (Beats per minute). Continue to exercise for 45 minutes longer for a total time of no more than 1 hour. Make sure to keep the heart rate in the zone because if it goes much higher your body will begin to utilize protein (Muscle) as the primary fuel source. Notes: Go beyond 1 hour exercising (total) and your body will stop utilizing stored fats and revert back to muscle burning. Run/Jog too fast with an elevated heart rate and your body will not burn stored fats. If you do want to Run or do sprints, exert (Run) in quick bursts of 10-15 seconds then give your body approximately 2-5 minutes to recover before continuing for up to 10 sprints. By doing so you will force the body to draw from fat stores, but a slow jog would be a better method to burn the stored fats. What some refer to as "Cardio" exercise is generally good for the heart and circulatory system, but requires an elevated heart rate not optimal for burning stored fat. Slow jog = Fat burning... Cardio good, But not an optimal short term solution to your current dilemma If you fail to eat something (easily digested) prior to exercising, your body will be in starvation mode and will burn muscle for fuel for the first 15 minutes, so eat a light easily digested snack prior to your burn. If you don't want to go for a jog outside, set up a mat in front of the TV and just jog in place for the duration. I find watching something interesting helps the time pass quickly. After exercising drink 20 grams of "Whey based" Protein isolate (NO MORE THAN 1/2 an hour after the burn), to keep the body in fat burning mode for a bit longer while preserving muscle. When I say muscle what I mean to say is "That shapely toned figure" You cannot target the stomach area (with sit-ups), to lose fat. It's good to do high repetitions in that area for toning, but sit-ups alone will not accomplish the goal of spot reducing. Lastly...Calories in/Calories out. Eat too much food (Especially at one time) and you will not lose weight no matter what you do. This is not a quick fix. It's a life style for the rest of a "Healthy" life if it's what you're looking for.

You may need MORE or LESS exercise depending on your age, body weight, and calorie intake. 3. You must continue to SHOCK YOUR BODY to keep losing weight! If you do the SAME exercise routine for months, your body will get use to that routine and not work as hard to burn calories, therefore you will not see results! EASY INDOOR AEROBIC EXERCISES: 1. Turn on your favorite music and start Dancing! Do bursts of high intensity dancing to get your heart rate going and to break a sweat! 2. Jumping Rope. Buy Aero Jump Sculpt dvd at Amazon or check out Aerospace Nyc website. 3. Brisk Walking. Buy Leslie Sansone Walk At Home: Walk Your Belly Flat dvd at Amazon. TONING EXERCISE TIPS 1. Toning Exercises or Weight/Resistance/Strength Training helps build lean muscle and strength, plus it increases your metabolism to burn more calories. 2. Don't do toning exercises on consecutive days! Your muscles need 1 or 2 days of rest to repair themselves. Overworking your muscles can lead to injury and tears in the muscles that can take a long time to heal! AB TONING EXERCISE TIPS 1. Do toning exercises that works all the ab muscles: Rectus Abdominis (six pack). Internal And External Oblique Muscles (love handles). Transversus Abdominus. 2. Using a Twist Board exercises your oblique muscles (love handles) and helps slim and tone your abs, hips, and thighs. It promotes core strength from the ab muscles as well as balance.

Quick Callanetics Stomach (dvd) Callanetics is deep muscle exercises using small and gentle motions. Callanetics will QUICKLY tighten hips, butt, thighs, flatten the belly, lift the bust, firm the underarms, and tone the entire body. EXERCISE MYTH: "Spot Reduction" is a myth! You can not exercise a specific area on your body to lose weight in that area. The only way to get rid of fat located ANYWHERE on the body is by doing aerobic exercise. Also, muscle and fat are two different tissues that are separate from each other. Aerobic exercise gets rid of fat while toning exercises defines, tones, and strengthens your muscles. Example: When you hear people say "I can feel my abs burning" or "My abs hurt". You are exercising ab MUSCLES, not the fat surrounding your stomach. EXERCISE MYTH: Female weight training can make you look bulky and masculine is a myth! It is impossible for females to get bulky masculine looking muscles because women do not naturally produce as much testosterone as males do. Females will not get the six pack abs like men do, nor the bulky arms and legs. Female bodybuilders have to use steroids (synthetic testosterone) and other drugs to achieve their muscularity.

There is no such thing as working on only ONE area. You can work the muscles in one area, but if you want to lose weight- it's impossible to "shrink your abs." The only thing that you can do is to use more calories then you eat each day. That means...get out and do something. Go for a walk. Go for a run. Go for a bike ride. The more cardio that you do, the more weight that you will lose. To keep a large butt, you have to have different parents give you different genes. Sorry, but there is nothing that you can do to get thin, but keep a big tush. You are either going to lose weight ALL OVER, or you will keep the weight on everywhere. Like I said, there is no such thing as spot fat remover. By the way, YOU ARE 13!!!! You body is still changing...just stay patient and be glad with what you were given. Hope that this helps... :) Dawn E.

No matter what you eat, exercise is a must to drop the pounds. Lie on your back and do leg lifts, sit-ups, push-ups and doing the plank to strengthen the core. Best diet is to drink a lot of water; eat chicken, vegetables, fruits and stay away from junk food and sodas. Just by doing this, and walking 30 minutes a day will help you drop the pounds. Put 30% less on your plate than what you normally eat and you will drop 20 to 25 pounds in 12 week without any fasting.

Strength training and flexibility exercises (such as Pilates) are very important at this age, as both increase lean muscle mass and will help to keep your stomach flat. The abdominals and pelvic-floor muscles need to be focused on now more than ever, so Pilates is the ideal choice, especially if you have had children. You should also take a fibre supplement, because your digestive system won't be as strong as it used to be.

Hi, You’ll make dramatic improvements in your worst trouble spots and most stubborn problem areas if you do simple, yet carefully structured, bodyweight exercises (no weights & no machines) which combine all three types of muscle movement: Concentric, Eccentric and Isometric. This is a crucial factor for man and women that cannot be addressed with typical weight and machine type exercise programs. The only way to combine these for maximum results and SAFETY is by focusing on bodyweight type exercises. Because its basically impossible to achieve this when using weights and machines. I am a 5.7 and 25 years old and a month ago I weigh 147lbs although about a year ago I weighed 188lbs. I am not very happy with how I look, although I have slimmed down a lot, but I still look like I'm pregnant. My stomach is flabby, my butt is big and I just feel and look disgusting. I used to run on treadmill for 15-20 mins then do some stretching for 10 min and then workout for 30-40 mins and all this 7 days a week. But I just couldn’t reach my goal. It is enough to make anyone frustrated. A month ago a friend introduced me a workout program. I was skeptical at first that this would work by itself. Targeted weight loss is quite tough, some would say impossible, but it definitely does produce results. I have lost 20 lbs in four weeks plus 3 inches from my stomach and even my legs are much more slimmer then before. If you are wondering that this program is too good to be true - I challenge you to try it! You will not regret it! And your body will thank you for it. The link is at the source below.
