How to get rid of your belly pooch (aka spare tyre) on your abdomen


Contrary to what most gym instructors would tell you, abs exercises alone would not get rid of that spare tyre around your waist. You can’t reduce fat from only one spot in your body, but you can adjust your diet, reduce fat in all parts of your body, and get a flat abdomen, especially, if you are taking in the right diet.

Here are the steps to getting rid of your pooch:
• Regular exercise. For a beginner, you can commence on two or three days of cardio exercises as long as you can, or for at least thirty minutes, and then increase it as the days go by.
• Strength training on your entire body, weight lifting is particularly helpful. For women, you can buy the 5kg dumbbells for weight lifting.
• A healthy low-calorie diet this is the most helpful part in the flat abs process. I have a food timetable on the website that you can use to attain this, along with these exercises.
• Mail me! Yes, please always send your questions and comments to I might not be in the country but I would always answer your emails.

Thank you.

      40 kg in three months is pretty extreme. I would advise you take advantage of my free coaching on my weight loss forum. Its absolutely free. all you need to do is register, and start posting your daily food intake and how much you exercise, and i would advise you on what i think. Hope to see you on the forum. you would also see success stories of other women who have lost weight along with thier pictures and the kinds of foods they have been eating! find the forum at: Just click the link to access the forum and register.


      Hi , can you join our forum and start posting your food and exercise diary there? so that way i can see what you eat daily and how much exercise you do and advice thus?
