    thats right. you can't see a sixpack if it's covered in flab!!!

    but when i read that i thought you meant you had to have low body fat first, IE diet then excersise. big mistake! you need to excersize and diet at the same time.


    but if you'r on a diet you need to not eat too few calories. if you eat too few your body will think it's starving and put on fat.

    i've read that lavender oil helps emulsify fat, so you might want to buy lavender pills or eat lavendar (yes it's edible)


    and while your at it, taking cool showers helps speed up the metabolism. so do stimulants like coffee and green tea. theres a chemical in green tea that makes the brain work faster thus increasing the metabolism. and the caffein in coffee is good for the skin.

    Careful with overdoing the caffiene though! Between all those raw foods and cups of coffee you'll have no trouble losing wieght running to the bathroom, hehe.
    Seriously, though, these folks are right; don't expect a sixpack off the bat. I've been at it for two years now, and I still can't get my wieght down enough for any definition to show. To stick with your plan long enough to see the results you want, you need to appreciate the non-aesthetic benefits of exercise, like feeling more energetic and having more strength and stamina. I would've given up on exercise a long time ago if I were just in it to look better.
    If you really want to lose the fat, these guys have the right idea - get lots of aerobics, find a healthy diet that you can stick to, and keep with it. In addition to running or jogging, biking, hiking, and swimming are all very good for you, as well as full-body sports like basketball and soccer. If you're active, I don't think you'll need much abuse to build a sixpack - it's more a matter of dropping enough fat that it can show.
    I've been told that drinking some icewater or eating some ice shortly before eating (like 15 minutes before) is helpful in speeding up the metabolism and fully digesting your food. Your stomach can only take in nutrients when they're at approximately the same temperature as your body, so by ingesting something cold before eating your stomach has to work a little harder to warm everything up before taking it in. The opposite is true of exercise; you should take room-temperature water when working out so that your body is able to take in the water without expending energy warming it up. My jujitsu instructor harps on us about drinking icewater before class because, according to her, you actually lose water when drinking cold beverages because the cold water is shunted directly to the bladder and body water is used to warm the stomach back up.

    right. even if you used to be pudgy but lost weight to a healthy level with little body fat around the middle you might not see abs because of the exess skin left over
    that makes no logic

I believe that's how it goes...
    ...That explains alot.

    Dangit, I need a heavier, more compact weight.. mine is 6.6 pounds (used to be my mom's when she lived here the first time, and it's one of two.. my grandfather uses the other one) and it takes wayyyy too many repetitions to have any effect. Plus, it's friggin' MASSIVE. I need a smaller, heavier one.
