  • a no carb diet is the only thing thats ever worked for me to get rid of the belly fat. and by no carbs i mean no bad, refined carbs. no pasta chips bread cookies, etc. - veggies & fruits are fine.
    i also take mega-t green tea pills, they work great.
    and obviously lots of ab exercises, and you should do lots cardio too because that is fat that you need to burn.

  • working out! Do lots of ab workout about 3 times a week to keep your muscles contracting. so every other day. Good luck. You can look up a few videos on youtube so you can do them right, I heard the fitness ball also works!

  • before i got pregnant. I was just doing crunches, increasing the number of them gradually. not full blown set ups but crunches, with in a few weeks, my stomach was almost flat.

  • I have wondered the same thing for the past few years!! I finally have gotten myself into an exercise routine and it is helping. I was doing 30 minutes on the elliptical 5 days a week for about 3 weeks and this week have moved on the the 30 Day Challenge on my wii Active. I am now doing other activity that is engaging more muscles and I think I am noticing a difference. I don't know that I could cut out carbs, but I can cut back. I also drink a lot of water and Yoli ~ for extra flavor, vitamins and minerals.
