If I do squats (without weights) doing 10squats 3sets everyday when will i start to see results? I have very small butt and i want it bigger/plump
Maybe: You're on the right track. Look at volleyball players. They are running and jumping for hours at a time. Small size is mostly genetic, so you're going to have to accept the basic frame that you have been given; however, you can sculpt what you have. All the exercise in the world won't give you a j-lo rear end if you're not programmed to be shaped that way. ...Read more

Belly Fat: This question was recently posed on healthtap. First, most belly fat/love handles issues occur in males. You say you workout everyday, does that mean you do cardio everyday ? I think you can do cardio until the cows come home, but if you are eating wrong then you will never see results. You have to cut the carbs out. No breads except whole grain. No potatoes, carrots, tropical fruits.Read labels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Think of it this way: Losing weight is about calorie intake (consuming food) being less than your calorie expenditure (resting metabolism, physical activity). So, let's say you decide to lose a pound a week. You would need to cut 500calories/day.
