Living with Obesity/Hi


Is it true that you need to work a lot to maintain a flat stomach? How do I get a flat stomach in a month? I am not fat, but have like 2 pounds of belly fat to release. How do I look 15 pounds by August 1? THANX!

Hi Angel,
In order to maintain a flat stomach you should focus on both your diet and exercise.  Go to a website like or and sign up for the online program where you can log food and exercise and it should give you an idea of how much to eat and exercise to lose the weight.  Without a personal evaluation it is hard for me to give you any specifics.  Make sure you get approval from a doctor before starting an exercise routine if you are not doing one currently.  Good luck!
