When people are asked what part of their body they dislike most, the overwhelming response is “my belly!” Our culture tends to define sex appeal as a trim stomach on women and a six pack on men and here is how you get lean:
I Want To Target the Fat On My Stomach!
Let’s dispel the myth right now… you can’t target belly fat! It’s your genetics that will decide the body parts and the order it will remove the fat from. You can tone and tighten the muscles on your stomach which will pull everything in and help take inches off, but you can’t directly make your stomach lose fat.
In fact, doing 100 crunches will burn less fat from your stomach than walking for 30 minutes. Make it your mission to minimize your total body fat percentage along with stomach exercises and you will be ecstatic with the results of your midsection!

It is very important to eat the good calories found in healthy and well balanced meals in order to lose weight fast. If meal planning is difficult, I suggest trying Nutrisystem as it will deliver high quality food right to your door which requires almost no planning or preparation:

You will dramatically speed up fat loss by adding a mixture of both cardio and weight exercises throughout the week.

If you are looking for professional training but can’t afford it or lack time to go to a gym, Jillian Michaels is a fantastic at home program.
Stress is directly linked to apatite stimulation and is tied to overeating. Here are some quick tips to distress:

The law of attraction states, “What you focus on you will get.” Focus on what you want which is a lean attractive midsection and that is exactly what you will get. Focus on what you don’t want which is probably a pot belly, that is also what you will get.
