There are many myths and facts about that beer belly. Sadly, you can ignore what you see on TV and in magazines – there’s no such thing as “spot” weight reduction that targets only the belly.


Genetics, gender, hormones and age are the major factors that determine the pattern of fat storage and its loss. Reducing fat in any one area of the body requires total body fat reduction. For many men and women, the first place to gain and the last place to lose fat is the tummy. Exercises like sit-ups, crunches, hip and leg raises only exercise muscles beneath fat – and it’s the fat that has to go.


Belly fat in the midsection does more than reduce your chances of winning the swimsuit competition. It’s linked to a variety of health problems, from type 2 diabetes to high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
