Will I lose belly fat in 2 weeks if I run everyday and go on a diet?

Will I lose belly fat in 2 weeks if I run everyday and go on a diet?

Probably Not: Weight loss focused on certain body areas is unpredictable. Particular exercises can help to tone the muscles in certain body regions but do not necessarily cause the fat to be lost in those regions. I recommend dietary changes with moderate exercise for weight loss with the emphasis on dietary changes for the greatest weight loss impact (while still eating healthy of course). ...Read more

No local fat control: Unfortunately running will not target localized fat control or loss especially the stomach following pregnancy in which fat is only part of the problem.

Yes: A primary care doctor can help make sure nothing unusual is going on. Avoid carbs (sugar and simple starches) because they increase the belly fat. Losing weight means eating fewer calories than one's body needs to burn each day. Also, marijuana use and excess alcohol drinking have been reported to lead to man-boobs. ...Read more

Can you help? Could running with a garbage bag get rid of belly fat and keep it off?

It depends: Upon the number of calories burned up that you don't eat, not the type of exercise. It's 3500 calories to the pound. Any exercise can be effective, except your body will choose where to lose the fat and you can't direct it to a specific place. Running with a garbage (i assume you mean wearing the bag not carrying it) causes more water loss, but not real weight. ...Read more
