  • Crunches DO work, it also takes eating less calories than your bodie need. Ask your Dr how many calories your body needs a day and start there. With hard work, sit-up's crunches and sensible eating you CAN loose the tummy bulge! You just have to have the self controll. I tell myself....A moment on the lips, forever on the hips and it keeps me from indulging in too many sweet treats. I also ask myself before i eat anything outside of real meals, "am I really or actually hungry? or is this just comfort/stress eating?" this also keeps me from cheating.

  • take in less calories and burn more. cardio and weight lifting at the gym. 45 minutes minimum of cardio and a little weight lifting should do the trick.

  • Crunches will work - you"ll see results in less than 6 weeks if you do them 4x a week. Cardio is important as well, you need to kick your metabolism up.

  • Get a plan done at your gym? I dont know how it works in the states but in the UK you get a free plan when you join. Cardio is very important so spend an hour running - slow running. Slow running for an hour or more will get your body into fat burning mode.

    Eat lots of fruits as much as you desire before each meal and make sure to have a large green salad or green smoothies daily. I am currently writing a book on this - if you are still struggling in the new year (which is when it is released) you should check it out! :)

  • You can loose the weight. It isn't hard. You have to just stick with a program. When you go to a gym, ask a trainer there and they can set you up on a regular routine to do for the areas that you need work on. Also watch your sugar in take and the carbs.
