It’s a pretty universal desire. I’m not talking about the living-forever wish — I mean having a flat belly. Have you ever heard anyone say, “No, actually, I’d like to go with the round, protruding kind.”
Claims are everywhere. If you believe what you see online, there are exercises that give you six-pack abs in 30 days, tart-cherry-based diets that eliminate flab in a jiffy or, a personal favorite, “belly-fat-fighting pills.”
So, as much as you don’t want to hear it, fighting belly fat is neither fast nor easy. You have to go back to the basics: Make general health and fitness part of your everyday life.
