Question
Hi.  I've seen ads on tv for the Nordic Track Incline Trainer, but I have a question.  They mention that it's possible to lose weight just by walking on a machine like this, but is that really possible?  I mean, is it possible to lose weight in the ab area by walking?  Thanks

Answer
Danielle,

Yes, it is possible, but the trick is in how much you train. It takes a lot. It's actually less effective than just eating less, but it has so many other health benefits, you should exercise for many reasons. You will likely reduce the fat over your abs no more quickly than other areas. See this article on the many benefits of cardiovascular exercise: http://www.treadmill-world.com/benefit-cardiovascular-exercise.html
