Spot reducing: The body normally looses weight all over, not just in one spot such as your stomach. The safest and most effective way to go is to consult w/a certified trainer at a gym after a check up w/your doctor. Also consider seeing a nutritionist for a food plan tailored to your needs. Peace and good health.
