    your body gains and loses weight evenly over your entire body. you cannot just pick areas to loose weight. exercise and eat less calories and you will naturally thin out. one pound of fat is 3500 calories. good luck

    stoppin the never ending flow of food may help.
    also try water and less soda.

    suck in your gut! Muscles have memory and if you constantly pull your stomache in, it will remember what position to stay in. you won’t lose weight, but you won’t have your belly hanging out all over either

    My sister’s friend is a personal trainer and he says that there is no way to lose weight in a particular area. You have to do a total body workout in order for other places to slim down. Trying to target a specific part of the body really doesn’t work.

  9. "Joshua" and what said :

    do about 100 sit ups a day for a month “guranteed results”

    Sorry if that was dramatic, but crunches and sit-ups DO NOT remove fat. I don’t know where this misconception came to be.

    Cardiovascular workouts are key. As you slowly lose weight in the stomach area, THEN you should begin doing crunches/sit-ups, but only to tone your muscles and to make them stand out more.

    Sit ups, they really help! do as many as u can a day.

    The only way to loose weight in a particular area is surgery. Short of that the suggestions you’ve already received are good ones. Exercise, sit ups or crunches will firm up the muscles under your fat and the muscle tissue will burn more calories when you are at rest but it won’t make your stomach area smaller in and of itself. Good luck. Drink lots of water and exercise.

  13. Dinker said :

    Any leg exercise will work.

  14. I_M said :

    usually stomach fat is the fat that goes first anyway, so even though you can’t target a body part to lose weight in, you will most likely lose that first.

    Cardio is key to losing weight but adding some muscular training like sit ups will help you tone, and that prevents skin from sagging.

    Good Luck,

    I’m in the same boat!!

    Healthy weight loss tips

    * Take one pound at a time
    Don’t get overwhelmed by how much weight you need to lose. Try to remember that “losing 15 pounds in two weeks” is nothing to celebrate. It is important to realize that the more quickly weight is lost, the more likely the loss is coming from water and muscle, not fat.

    Since muscle tissue is critical in keeping our metabolism elevated, losing it actually leads to a decrease in the amount of calories we can each day without gaining weight.

    Fat loss is best achieved when weight is lost slowly. Strive for a weight loss of no more than 3-4 pounds per week. One pound of weight is equivalent to 3500 calories.

    * Set Reachable Goals
    For instance, if you know you need to get more exercise, begin with a manageable goal of, say, walking 10 minutes a day that you know you can achieve. Then build your self-esteem by achieving the small goals you set yourself.

    The same logic applies for losing weight.

    * Stay off the scales
    Don’t get discouraged when your progress seems to be slow according to your bathroom scales. They do not provide a true measure of what is going on with the body.

    If exercise levels are adequate (5-7 days a week), you may be putting on muscle but losing fat, thus losing inches even if you are not losing pounds. It’s always a good idea to do several body measurements to have a second objective way to monitor progress.

    * Stay focused on being healthy, not thin
    # Many people become more successful at long term weight loss when their motive changes from wanting to be thinner to wanting to be healthier. Change your mindset to think about selecting foods that will help your body’s health rather than worrying about foods that will affect your body’s weight. The Food Pyramid offers a basic outline of the types and amounts of food you should eat each day to give your body the nutrients it needs for optimal health.

    * Fat Free?
    We’ve known for some time that limiting high fat foods in the diet can be helpful with weight loss. That’s because fats pack in 9 calories per gram compared to only 4 calories per gram from proteins or carbohydrates. To many, the message to limit fats implied an endorsement to eat unlimited amounts of fat-free products. Just to clarify, fat-free foods have calories too. In some cases fat-free foods have as many calories as their fat laden counterparts. If you eat more calories than your body uses, you will gain weight. Eating less fat will help you to lose weight. Eating less fat and replacing it with excessive amounts of fat-free products will not.

    * Drink plenty of water
    Drink eight glasses a day. Water is a natural appetite-suppressant. Nettle tea is a great weight-loss tea as it supports metabolism and has diuretic properties.

    * Reward yourself
    # Each time you reach a goal, such as losing 5 pounds, reward yourself with a gift or a massage.

    * Seek help if you need it
    # A big key in long term weight control comes from receiving encouragement and support from others. Find a friend to lose weight with or you can check to see if groups such as Weight Watchers, or eDiets offer programs and resources in your area by clicking the links. You may also wish to check with your local hospital to see if their registered dietician conducts group weight loss programs.

    * Watch your portions
    With the advent of “supersize” meals and increasingly huge portions at restaurants, our concept of normal serving sizes is a distant memory. Be mindful of the amounts of food you consume at a sitting. When necessary, divide your food in half and ask for a take home bag. It is all too easy to be a “plate cleaner” even when served enormous portions. Learn to pay attention to your hunger level and stop eating when you feel comfortably full, not stuffed.

    * Eat your food slowly
    Did you ever notice that thin people take an awfully long time to eat their food? Eating slowly is one method that can help take off pounds. That’s because from the time you begin eating it takes the brain 20 minutes to start signaling feelings of fullness. Fast eaters often eat beyond their true level of fullness before the 20 minute signal has had a chance to set in. The amount of calories consumed before you begin to feel full can vary significantly depending on how quickly you eat. So slow down, take smaller bites and enjoy your food.
