The best approach is through a healthy diet based using one of the reputable diet programs such as Weight Watchers, or seeing a dietitian who can create a plan for you. Using www.mypyramid.gov will also provide you with guidelines, and you can create an individual plan.
You can’t necessarily guarantee that weight will be lost from a certain part of your body. However, through a well-rounded exercise program in combination with calorie management, you will be more likely to see some changes in specific areas of your body. Such a program includes:
‘cardio’ exercise, like brisk walking;
- strength exercises, which would also help with toning different areas; and
- stretching exercises to maintain flexibility.
You may be able to find classes through local sources such as community college adult offerings, or you can consult exercise/fitness books. A personal trainer or joining a gym are other options, although they more expensive.
