  • I did something called the HCG Diet.... you safely lose 1-2 pounds a day and yes, it works! If you are interested in something kind of extreme like that, look it up. I belong to a group about it and you can go to

  • For getting rid of stomach fat, you really do need to be eating carbs - but only good, complex, whole grains that are rich in fiber. In addition to that, water, water, WATER! The tea is good too, especially green tea. Try to skip fruits that are high in fructose, which is most of them except berries. Berries are awesome for flushing tummy fat. Most importantly, stick with it. Tummy fat is usually the last to go (as you've obviously noticed!) and it takes a while for effects to become noticeable. If you're switching it up too much, it could be confusing your body. Try interval training with your cardio - alternating periods of maximum intensity work with lower intensity and back again. Also make sure you're doing some regular exercises to tighten the muscles underneath that fat. :) There are some yoga poses that are great for this. GL! I really think you can do it without surgery. :)

  • I do a lot of cardio and resistance training. So far I've lost 7 pounds in 3 weeks. I eat healthy and exercise. Its the hard way but Id be afraid with surgery i would gain it all back again or more then i lost with the surgery. I think doing it the hard way without pills is the best way
