What helps women lise belly fat(pooch) quickly?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Francine Mosley
General Practice 20 years experience
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.
