But not this kind of Jelly Roll (from Love Jones).
In preparation for this little trip with the chica’s in June, and after being inundated by so many women in these ads with super skinny waists and flat tummys while shopping for a swim suit, I’ve decided to get serious about this belly fat. So since I’m kinda on the thin side, I typed, “How to get a flat tummy without losing weight,” into the search engine, and this is what I was led to;
From wiki answers:
If you want to get a flat stomach you need to lose stomach fat first, and you cannot lose fat in your stomach only; our bodies don’t work that way. As you lose fat all over you will start seeing the fat come off the stomach area as well and as a result your stomach muscles will start to show.
However, if you take steps to gain muscle while losing fat your body weight may remain about the same. You will have burned off the fat and replaced it with the same weight in muscle. You may weigh the same as an unconditioned flabby person, but you will look much better!
If you have a lot of fat in your stomach, then to get flat abs you have to lose the fat in the abdominal cavity… but if you still want to maintain weight and lose fat in stomach, then take up weight training, train hard with weights thrice a week, do cardio on non training days. Eat high protein-moderate carbs and low fat diet….. And expect to move on slowly…… Based on your current fat percentage you can reach your goal… For example if you are at 15% bodyfat then you can expect to have a flat abs in 4 months.
Body fat accumulating around the stomach is caused by consuming too many refined (processed) carbohydrates. For information about how to lose stomach fat and ‘fat burning’ foods, see the page links, further down this page, listed under Related Questions.
