Unfortunately, there’s no way to choose where your body loses weight. If you’re overweight, eating a balanced diet that’s low in refined grains and sugar (white bread, soda, candy, etc.) and exercising are the way to lose weight. It’s important to do this in a safe and gradual way. Think about increasing your physical activity a little bit at first and consider seeing a registered dietitian if you have questions about healthy eating. While you can’t target weight loss, you can tone muscles in specific areas; doing abdominal exercises such as crunches will help make the muscles in your stomach area stronger.
