In order to make your body burn off its fat stores you need to create a calorie deficit through your food choices and exercise, which eventually will reduce the fat from your midsection and the rest of your body.

junk food In order to burn off one pound of fat a week you need to create a weekly calorie deficit of 3500kcals or 500kcals a day.

This for most people means just cutting out the junk food. If this does not work increase your daily activities (exercise classes, jogging, sports, gardening, etc...) and slowly decrease your meal sizes until you start losing a pound per week and no more!


When we think of abs we mostly think of the washboard midsection of the lean and muscular bodybuilders on stage. However, the abdominals include the Rectus abdominis and the External abdominal oblique muscles. Also included in this list are the Internal abdominal oblique and the Serratus anterior. The latter muscles are not visible and are not included in this article.
