What approaches work best to lose weight on your legs and stomach?

What approaches work best to lose weight on your legs and stomach?

Legs and Stomach: Losing weight in your stomach is probably easier then your legs. Cut the carbs out completely, no breads, rice, tropical fruits. Have a zero or low carb protein drink between meals. It will suppress how much you eat at mealtime and your body will burn calories more efficiently. You have to incorporate cardio exercise into your workout. Running, elliptical or fast walking are the best. ...Read more

What exercises should I do to lose weight and lose fat on my tummy?

What exercises should I do to lose weight and lose fat on my tummy?

Abdominal exercise: While sit-ups can increase abdominal muscle mass they will only minimially help you loose stomach fat, if any. To loose adipose tissue work on a cardio mix (walking, running, biking, swimming, circuit training, etc - mix it up). Keep in mind that you can not target one specific area of the body to loose weight, and over time the adipose will decrease in many areas of your body (stomach included). ...Read more

Which type of diet/exercise should I do to tone up my tummy and lose weight in general?

Which type of diet/exercise should I do to tone up my tummy and lose weight in general?

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. ...Read more

Would a genie diet be something good if i weigh 218 5'3 and trying to lose weight by summer..Just my tummy!

Would a genie diet be something good if i weigh 218 5'3 and trying to lose weight by summer..Just my tummy!

Maybe not good...: If the genie diet has claims of "detoxing" or "cleansing" the body, that would be a marketing gimmick. If one likes the other parts of the diet plan, he can take the information to an appointment with his doctor to get an opinion. The doctor can also schedule check-up and evaluation visits, to see if an overweight patient is already suffering harm from being overweight. ...Read more

Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & “bicycling” exercise on back. Do regular aerobic exercise. ...Read more
