I’ve had reader Zesty Yanie write in with an interesting question.
Any suggestion about fat blocker? i not worried about my weight, but my tummy actually.. bulging..
I thought it was an interesting question because I might speak for myself but the tummy is the hardest bit of flab to lose! I’m not exactly skinny – I’m happy NOT to be super skinny and I do have problems with a flabby tum too.
I don’t use fat blockers nor creams. On a personal note, I don’t believe topical creams work at all. So I recommend exercise and careful eating habits.
Weight might not be an issue but exercise not only keeps weight down, it keeps you trim and helps your blood circulate better. Even if you aren’t worried about weight, you should be concerned about your heart and overall health.
I’m one for low impact exercises – swimming is very good exercise as is yoga. Don’t knock yoga – its not all ommm…. and zen meditation involving you being tied into a pretzel. Its a LOT of hard work for muscles you never thought you had. I’m always a shivering mess of jelly when those muscles start to work.
Swimming is also very good for overall fitness. Its low impact and works out different parts of your body at the same time. I prefer low impact exercises because its easier on the body and its generally more relaxing as anyone who has a hectic job will know.
Healthy eating is another thing. Reducing the intake of sugars and carbohydrates will help cut the flab. I’ve gone on the no-carb diet and yes, it works. But after a few months, you stop losing weight and if you eat carbs you put it all back on pretty quickly. So, my diet now is very simple – EAT EVERYTHING! But in moderation. You satisfy all your cravings and enjoy your food while at it. I love my food so telling me I can’t eat certain foods only want to make me eat them more 😛
So that’s how I try to beat tummy flab – not that I’m really succeeding but its not excerbating the problem either. Its a lot of hard work and I’m not saying I’ve gotten it down to the point where I’m happy to prance around in a teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini, but I’m not about to hide away in a corner in a tent dress either 🙂
Do you have tips to share?
Do you know of good fat blockers or how do you deal with a problem tummy?
