If only that easy!!!: Don't waste your money on 'fat burners', laxatives, 'cleansers', or anything else that promises an easy way to lose weight. Short of surgery, drop & keep fat off by regular exercise & making healthy food choices (avoid junk food & sugary drinks, watch portion size, moderate alcohol). Abdominal exercises will tone your muscles & improve your core strength, but alone will not achieve your goal.

We loose weight: over our entire body. Spot reducing is not effective. The amount of running or other exercise that helps depends on your present weight and metabolism. If your doc clears you for exercise go for it, same w/lower carb food plan. Overall health is the best goal. Peace and good health.
