I had a baby 4/14/14 via cesarean&have this hanging flap of skin&or fat on stomach.Can you tell me if its skin&or fat&if its fat how to get rid of it?

It's left over: expanded flab from the pregnancy. Sometimes it is called baby fat, but whatever it is called in order to get rid of it you will have to do some aerobic and stretching exercises, along with isotonics to "tone" your rectus abdominis and latissimus dorsi. There is no other way around it. Unless you want a "tummy tuck" which does not guarantee to keep it away forever unless you exercise too. ...Read more

Nutrition/exercise: A good nutrition plan (diabetic diet is good) and aerobic exercise is going to be your best option. Having an 11 month old can certainly tie up your time and energy, but start finding those times and increase to 4 or more times a week to exercise and eat healthy. You should eat a minimum of 5 time a day. I like the 1500 calorie flat belly plan. ...Read more
