MOD MOD MOD. It sounds weird but I have skinny legs arms and a little bit of flabby I don't I don't want hanging around on my stomach? What should I do my birthday in the beginning of April if I get into shape I might want to go to the beach? Can you help? And thanks!!Smile


Hey girl! It sounds like you want to tone up a bit. For me, having a flat stomach is nearly impossible because of genetics, but luckily, you can reduce bloat and flab. There is a saying that "abs are made in the kitchen," meaning that your daily diet is key, rather than doing hundreds of crunches every day. Try to eat whole foods--lots of fruits and veggies, whole grains (whole wheat bread, oatmeal, etc), lean protein (eggs, chicken, fish), and good sources of fat (almonds, natural peanut butter, avocados). Reducing your sodium intake will play a major role in reducing bloat, so limit salty foods, like chips. Make sure you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and amp up your workouts--try running intervals to burn more calories. Remember that eating lots of natural foods is important to fuel your body!

MOD i am looking to have flat abs in just under 2 weeks, any ideas? i am going on vacation in 2 weeks to the bahamas and what those nice flat abs. help?

Hey girlie,

Two weeks is NOT a lot of time - and definitely not enough to start seeing serious results from ab exercises. But if you start doing the exercises in this article (you could also try this one here), trying a pilates or kickboxing DVD, and getting moving every single day from now til then, you'll definitely feel your bod start to firm up. Pair that with smart diet choices (swapping junk food for healthy snacks and eating 3 balanced meals a day) and you'll feel great for your vacation! <3

MOD MOD MOD I am a competitive dancer and for dance it helps if you have a flat stomach/abs and I was wondering what is the best way to work on just that sice I work on everything else in dance?


Hey dancingcorinne, you could trying getting onto all fours, inhaling while pulling your stomach in and exhaling while pushing it out. You could lie on your back, put your hands on the sides of your head and pretend you're riding a bike. A third exercise you can do is lie on your back, use your hands to support your head, extend your legs and raise them up and down. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Ok so are theyre anymore ways to lose weight fast??? And doesnt take everydsy of da week?? Because I also hike.....alot [:

Hey girl,

Losing weight is something that takes lots of dedication and lots of time! There are no "lose weight fast" tricks that don't require a little work each day. Hiking is a great workout but, on the days you don't hike, you should find a way to get moving for at least 30-60 minutes. Exercise is only a half of it though - you also need to make healthier food choices! Cut out most junk food and replace those with healthier snacks, like granola bars, yogurt, veggies, fruits, froyo, etc. The combo of exercise and eating right will definitely make you feel better! Smile

Does anyone know any ab exercises that will not hurt/strain my lower back?
I have chronic lumbar pain, so I can't do sit-ups and crunches, but I REALLY, REALLY want to shed my belly fat and feel GOOD in a swimsuit!
Please help me!

by MaryM on 4/14/2011 8:08:30 PM

So I want to start exercising regularly but need help making sort of a "Exercise plan"? I dont want to over work or under work myself. Also any suggestions on things that will help motivate me and help me not procrastinate.

by flacucha25 on 3/25/2011 4:46:47 PM


i am very fit except for my lower abbs. they is sortof a lump of fat there Tong how do i work out my lower abdominals?

Hey girlie. Try doing some cardio and doing ab exercises. The more you do them, the more you'll see results!

Thank you so much for the great help! I want to ask my doctor about a diet and exercise plan, but can you suggest some good questions? I'm a little afraid that it's going to be really awkward! Thanks so much. Smile

Hey girl!

Glad I can help Smile Don't worry about the visit being awkward--just think about it, the doctor sees tons of patients every day and probably has answered ALL types of questions (even very embarrassing ones!) You're the only one who knows your body the best, so be totally honest about how you've been feeling and what goals you want to reach.  Wish you the very best, girlie!

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD please please please!
I do Zumba, and I love it! It's so fun. But I've been doing it for almost a year and can hardly tell a difference. Occasionally, I'll mix in some cardio, but it doesn't seem to be working! I eat VERY healthy all the time! Why oh why can't I lose weight???
Please answer!

Hey girlie,

I would definitely encourage you to pay a visit to your doctor, because maybe you do not need to be concerned about losing weight.  Talk to your doctor before engaging in too much physical activity or diet changes!  If you do need to lose weight, he/she will let you know what the best diet/exercise plan for your body is!

hey, you guys who are skinny or underwait and think yall need to gain some just be carfeul cuz gaining is way easy its the getting it off that is the problem. Just watch out. I am about 50 to 60 pounds overwait i am in shape though,how can I get a bikinni body before my 9th grade year? I am sick of getting made fun of. My friends think Im pretty but other people i guess dont. I need help!!!

by hott-stuff13 on 3/17/2011 8:23:58 PM


Are these exercises going to most likely make you lose weight? If so, how can I gain some more weight and build more muscle (especially on my arms). I am naturally really skinny and am often self concious about it even though my friends say I'm really lucky.

by pumpkinerin on 3/13/2011 3:45:31 PM


Hi! Oh yea and MODMODMOD
So I'm underweight(im working on it,)So if i do these exercises- will I lose weight?

hey! probably, so you should try to gain weight instead Smile

Hey girl, I really stand by cardio as a way to get in shape: jogging three times a week or dance, swimming, etc. are awesome exercises. We have more workouts, however, here:

by rockergirl13 on 3/3/2011 10:17:20 PM


i would try and build up the time that you hold your planks for. once 20 counts is pretty simple, try 30, and so on. but just doing the same thing over and over doesnt help. you have to push yourself to get results.

by Volleyball1559 on 3/2/2011 9:45:48 PM


what i do while i watch tv is regular planks. you rest on your fourarms are elbows and push yourself up make sure you are flat hold yourself up for fifteen seconds.

by fresh princess on 3/2/2011 8:15:35 PM


ok i heard that if u have fat near your stomache and abs that u wont get any results when doing crunches! do i need to jog it off or just give up fav simple exercise! oh and p.s i have a lot of fat on my stomache

Hey chica! It's true that ab exercises alone will not completely tone. Cardio is the other half of the workout. If you do both, you will see results! Props to you for wanting to stay healthy!

MOD MOD MOD- im a health nut! i like eating healthy food, exersize almost everyday, and everytime i eat, i try to eat all the foods im suppose to on the food pyramid. Am i super obsessed. And if i am, how do i stop?



Hey girly girl! Based off of that alone, it doesn't sound super obsessed at all. However, if it's getting in the way of the rest of your life, then I'd cut back a little. Skipping a day or two a week of working out is perfectly fine! Your body needs time to re-coup. So, don't beat yourself up over taking a break every now and then. And, if you eat healthy 90% of the time and cheat every now and then on something junky or sweet, then that's ok too.

MOD!!! Hey, I have a trampoline in my backyard, and I was wondering if I could use it to benefit myself for workouts . . .
So, what kind of jumping exercises can I do? Besides jumping jacks, which I do already.

~ thx chocofeet <3

by chocofeet on 2/25/2011 10:25:01 PM


I have a good ab workout! Lay on your back, with your hands on your side and not under your butt (it makes it easier.) Put your feet together and lift them in the air 6 inches. After 5-10 seconds, spread your legs apart but keep them in the air. After 5-10 more seconds, start kicking them opposite ways. Like when the right foot is up, the left foot should be down. Put down after one more round of 5-10 seconds. Repeat!

by elizabethmariexo on 2/25/2011 1:05:10 PM

Hey girlie! You can always try frozen waffles. A little flax seed sprinkled over top will up the health factor. Or smoothies. I like a cup of strawberries, a whole banana, a handful of ice and a cup of low-fat Greek yogurt. Lots of protein!

Skip the ice cream and make a chunky monkey shake. Blend 1 banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 cup of low-fat chocolate milk with 1 cup of ice for a protein-packed pick-me-up.
