Yes: If you are very thin, it is not unusual to feel the aorta (the major blood vessel from the heart) pulsate with your heartbeat.

Lose wt, aerobics: Probably the best way to lose tummy fat would be to lose weight using aerobic exercise such as walking or cycling. Also you can work on strengthening your abdominal muscles. If you don't lose weight you probably not have the washboard abs one strives for.

Stretch marks: Think of stretch marks as a kind of scar. There is no cure for this problem which often looks better over time regardless of what treatment is used. Otc products such as Mederma are of no value.

What helps women lise belly fat(pooch) quickly?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Francine Mosley

Healthy takes time!: A belly doesn't develop a "pooch" overnight, and it won't go away overnight. If you have a pooch, for whatever reason, sit- or stand-up straight, suck-in your stomach to strengthen your belly muscles, trade water for soda pop and make good food choices. Your belly will look better.
