What can do ti reduce my tommy fat? I have done exercise snd dieting but seemd not to work

What can do ti reduce my tommy fat? I have done exercise snd dieting but seemd not to work

Stick with it: See your doctor for proper diet and exercise plan. It always works if you stick with it. There is no way to lose only tummy fat. Your body puts on fat and loses fat according to its own pattern. You will need to lose fat all over in order to lose tummy fat. Make sure you exercise and diet hard enough. Buy urine ketone test strips. If positive, you are burning fat. If negative, try harder. ...Read more

I'm 18 & a male! i lost 45 pounds from dieting. Now my skin is extremely saggy. It's been 2 months since I've lost this weight, how do I fix the saggy?

Give your self time: If it has been only 2 months since your weight loss, i would give it more time. You are young and you should do what is healthy for you. Continue on achieving your goals. If the loose skin does not improve after 6 months, speak to a plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Is this possible to lose 15kgs in 40days with dieting and exercise?

Is this possible to lose 15kgs in 40days with dieting and exercise?

That's too quick.: 15kg would equal ~33 pounds, which is too much weight to lose in 40 days. We generally recommend no more than two pounds per week, which would make your weight loss attempt last ~17 weeks. Be patient, be healthy, and make your weight loss last. ...Read more

Exercising is not hard but dieting is, any tips?

Exercising is not hard but dieting is, any tips?

Avoid sugar/carbs: Altering your diet is more appropriate than dieting. Added sugar and carbs cause insulin spikes that over time lead to hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance and the blocking of leptin (the I'm full hormone). The brain never gets the signal of satiety and so over consumption results. Insulin increases don't allow your fat stores to be accessed. You keep burning glucose instead of fat. Get off sugar! ...Read more

Why is exercise better than dieting?

Why is exercise better than dieting?

Many reasons: Imagine i instruct two identical people to lose weight, telling one to only do so through dieting and the other to only do so through exercise. Both return 6 months later, both have lost 20 lbs. The "dieter" is only slightly healthier; the "exerciser" is vastly healthier because she now has a stronger heart, improved blood pressure, better cholesterol, better mental status, etc. No comparison. ...Read more
