Question: Hi, I'm 18 and really confused about how to lose weight and work out. I don't really do any exercise but swim sometimes and walk a lot. I'm not fat but quite chubby in some areas and very petite (5ft). Anyway, i don't like my stomach, hips and thighs and butt - esp stomach as it comes out.
How do i get rid of this and make it flat?
I appreciate if you could help me
Thank u so much
YouTips4U: Hi, walking is wonderful exercise, but whatever exercise you choose, you must be consistent. The amount of exercise you are currently doing, your body has probably become used to and now you need to step it up a bit to challenge your muscles more so that you burn more calories. Perhaps add a little interval training to your walking with some jogging. While you are out walking mix in a little jogging for a few minutes, then go back to walking. Eventually, you may be able to sustain jogging the entire time. Nothing slims you down faster than jogging/running. In addition to more cardio, you need to be sure you maintain a healthy balanced portion-controlled diet and limit junk food choices when you snack. Keep it healthy and reach for proteins, fruits, veggies, dairy products, etc. instead of candy or chips, etc.
To tone your tummy you need to do a sit ups routine every other day. This will strengthen and tone those abs while the cardio workouts will slim them down.
