Cardio Mix: You can not target the abdomen specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume.

A 32-year-old member asked:

Are there foods which burn belly fat?

No: No foods burn fat, but persons with much belly fat may have "metabolic syndrome" and can benefit from a diet low in sugars & carbohydrates. In general, if a person eats fewer calories than he needs to live on each day, his body will use the stored fuel (fat). If a person exercises more than he did before, but does not start eating more calories, then his body will also use the fat (stored fuel).

Wrong approach: There are no foods that specifically burn fat in any location. Fewer calories in, and more calories pout is the best approach to burn off fat in all locations.

Planks: Try planks. You hold yourself as if you were going to do push ups but don't go down. Hold as long as you can, then you can work on side planks to define the obliques.

What's the injury?: In order to lose weight you need to work on cardio & this may be possible w/ an injury, but i'd like to know what your injury is first. If you could write again w/ more specific info that would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, please note that it is impossible to target "belly fat", a well rounded exercise program & balanced diet will help you lose adipose all over.
