Hi,
To lose belly fat do abdominal exercise.In this exercise do leg raise exercise.First you raise your one leg as much as you can, keeping your hands on the chest keep in this position for a while then get it down and do with other leg and then with both legs.Do like this for about 10 minitues in the morning and in the evening.
This will work for belly and thighs.

Hello,
Start your workout sessions with 20minute cardio workout ( such as running on threadmill).An overall workout is essential,exercising specific areas only wont give the results.Next with your back on floor, knees bent, feet on floor,hands on side of head, raise your upper body half way up and down .This type of crunches is mainly for your upper abs.same exercise but this time with knee bent at 90degress with feet in air repeat crunches.Finally with legs straight up without knee bending repeat crunches.Each 16 times 2 sets each.There are many variations but its better if you could get a look at it as doing in the wrong way might land you in trouble.Strenthening you thighs you can do lunges with weights ,again its better to go instructor for a month or so and then do same at home.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
