from this area. Fifteen tips for firming up your tummy are

If you are really after burning the belly fat, aerobics are still
the way to go. They burn 67% more calories than strength
training and will tackle even problem areas like the tummy.

carry nearly 4% less fat. Great sources of fiber include fresh
fruits and vegetables, beans, and cereals like bran flakes.

for your abdominal muscles – and your upper body, too!
Eat Sunflower Seeds
Sunflowers are also a great source of monounsaturated fats
and adding them to your diet is as simple as sprinkling them
on your lunchtime salad.
Tummy Tuck

including your metabolism. You also need more water if you
are working out.
Following these tips is not difficult, and it can really pay off
in the form of a firmer, tighter belly!
