    Default Belly fat

    Hi all, so, I have pretty much gone back to my before baby weight ( it only took 2 years!) apart from
    My stomach. It looks like I have a beer gut and walking isn't making it go away. I am so self concious about it, I have even had people ask me when I am due!!

    My question is, does anyone have Ny tips on how to shift it? I work full time and dd is very full on so I can't go to the gym

    Will be forever grateful for any hints or tips

    Tone the muscles!! It'll pull the skin in tighter so it won't have that hanging effect.

    Before I was UTD I was doing a plank and holding it for at least 30 sec. It was starting to have an effect. And I was also minimizing sugar

    Lie face down on mat resting on the forearms, palms flat on the floor.
    Push off the floor, raising up onto toes and resting on the elbows.
    Keep your back flat, in a straight line from head to heels.
    Tilt your pelvis and contract your abdominals to prevent your rear end from sticking up in the air or sagging in the middle.
    Hold for 20 to 60 seconds, lower and repeat for 3-5 reps.

    Sorry to hear about your accident and well is for getting back on your feet. How about lying on your back and doing cycling type movements with your legs??? Helps work the lower ab muscles, you could also do crunches lying on your back too. Core exercises, like the plank suggested, would be great but I don't know an alternative that doesn't use your feet.

    For losing your belly fat do some exercises specially jogging and yoga.
    Take vegetables soups, green tea, and grapefruit juices for burning your belly fat.
