I have increased my core workouts. As my weight seems to be dropping into my lower tummy I feel that this is necessary.

FOOD AB-FLATTENERS

Reduce animal fats and trans fats. Those who eat too much saturated and trans fats are more likely to overeat and be insulin resistant, have higher cholesterol and a larger waist size. So eat more fish than poultry or meats, and choose low-fat dairy. And eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, beans and whole grains.

Avoid alcohol. They don’t call it a beer belly for nothing. Alcohol may be more likely to increase ab fat, possibly due to the effects of the alcohol, or possibly because every drink is an infusion of 200 to 400 calories (the equivalent of one to two candy bars), so several nights out a week can really add up.

Eat good carbs. Minimize eating processed, refined carbs like white bread, bagels, muffins, pasta, cookies and cakes; they are linked to larger waistlines. Eat whole grains (that means cooked brown rice, barley, quinoa and the like.) When that’s not practical, choose the least processed versions of foods and try to enhance them. So, choose whole wheat pasta and sprinkle quinoa in the boiling pot, or choose whole grain (not just “brown”) bread and add a layer of uncooked oatmeal to the fillings inside (you won’t taste it but it will add fiber, nutrients and more chew to your sandwich or toast).

FITNESS AB-FLATTENERS

Do cardio nearly every day. Regular exercise will help you lose more deep abdominal fat, and cardio seems to work best since it burns the most calories per minute.

Work out at higher intensities. Get your heart rate up higher. One study at Duke University in Durham, N.C. found that 175 overweight men and women who walked at least 11 miles per week prevented increases in their ab fat over eight months. (So, about 45 minutes, four days per week.) But those who worked harder (walking fast or jogging) for 20 miles a week (about 60 minutes, five days a week) actually lost ab fat—and this was all without dieting!

Accumulate 60 to 90 minutes a day (or aim for that). Start walking or doing other types of cardio as much as you can. If you’re a new exerciser, build up fitness first with 15 minutes of brisk walking or cardio activity every day and add more minutes every week. Work up to doing 60 to 90 minutes on most days of the week.
