Acid Reflux FAQ » Acid Reflux QA » stomach


A: You have to burn that fat off by doing cardio, like running, biking, swimming, or walking. Do at least 30-45 minutes of intense cardio at least 4-5 times a week. You also have to eat healthy, however. Diet and exercise go hand in hand.

Q: Stomach????
Ok so I am really confused right now. You see when u wake up in the morning your stomach is skinny & after you eat its big and well how can you make it skinny again? I know the diet thing but will it help sort of? If you do sit ups then will it help? I have been doing 40 sit-ups and about 50 or as much as I can do crunches everyday. Will all of that help in about how many weeks? Will my stomach be skinnier than before after I eat when I wake up? I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!!! PLEASE IF YOU READ THIS AND CAN STILL ANSWER, PLEASE ANSWER AND GIVE USEFUL ADVICE!! PLEASE!!

A: Its natural after you eat for you to be bloated from not only the food intake but water and salt intake as well. Your true weight is first thing in the morning when you get up before eating or drinking anything. So if you have a flat stomach in the morning, that’s its normal shape.

Of COURSE there are exercises to help shrink the waistline. I dont recommend situps, as you can hurt your back. Instead, the following is a daily ab workout that can have you seeing major definition and sculpture in 2 weeks to a month.

50 reverse crunches (lower abs..lay on the floor on your back. pull your knees into your chest then back down)

50 normal crunches

50 lateral crunch, each side (lay on one hip and crunch up)

It may seem like a lot, but trust me when I say that will effectively sculpt your tummy.

With that said, you need to get rid of the excess fat around your midsection while you are toning it. To do this effectively, work in 20 to 30 minutes of cardio training 3 to 7 days a week (3 minimum, but every day if you want). I suggest the following:

I suggest you start off with a 5 to 10 minute cardio warmup. Walk on the treadmill at a low speed for about 5 minutes, then increase it a bit, then at least 30 minutes of high impact, FAT burning cardio. What do I mean by this? Your heart rate MUST stay within 65 to 70% in order to burn fat. Anything higher will be a waste of your time as far as shedding pounds.

So, to find your heart rate range, subtract your age from 220, then multiply by .65 for the minimum heart rate, and .70 for the maximum. For example, if you are 20 years old, 220 – 20 = 200 x .65 = 130, 200 x .70 = 140 So you will want to keep your heart rate between 130 and 140 beats per minute for at least 30 minutes.

After, its important to cool down for at least 5 minutes. Lower the speed and inclination of the machine gradually until your heartrate returns to normal.

more tricks to sliming the waistline:

consume 3 servings of non fat fruit yogurt every day. It not only aids in proper digestion, but helps shrink stomach fat.

Stay positive. Stress produces a nasty little hormone called cortisol, which guards belly fat instead of burning it. (relacore is an over the counter weight loss suppliment that helps control or eliminate cortisol).

Drink at least 2 liters of water a day! Trust me, its a key component to weight loss and toning.

Get plenty of sleep at night in order to rest and recuperate your muscles.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Q: What is the proper way to do stomach crunches?
I went to a gym a few years ago and I cannot remember if the woman told me to suck in my stomach when I do them or if she told me not to….She said that you will get muscles in your stomach that bulge out and your stomach will not get flat if they are done improperly…Can someone please inform me of the proper way to do them for a flatter stomach? Do you suck your stomach in or no? Thank you!

A: you can suck in our tummy but make sure that you are breathing while you do the crunches. put you r hands behing your head and dont bend your arms try and make your elbows level with the ground if that makes any sense, and then look up and the ceiling and lift your torso up towards the ceiling. make sure that your shoulder bones come off the ground. think of lifting up not folding in half. hope that helps

Q: How can i get rid of my stomach fat really fast?
I am so overweight but my stomach is the biggest part. My pants won’t buttom because of my stomach and when i get a pair to fit over my stomach, then they won’t stay on my behind? I need to know how to get rid of all this stomach fat really fast cuz it’s gettin me really depressed.

A: You can’t choose what part of your body you loose weight from though, you can tone that part. I recommend eating a little less and working out more, you sure you aren’t getting bloated? To loose one pound you need to burn 3500 calories. Try eating lots of fruits and veggies and less meat, carbs. and junk food in general. Start running or working out and getting a little more exercise in, even if it is parking at the back of the parking lot at stores. Lastly, get a larger pair of pants. You need to feel good about yourself to loose weight and be accepting of your body, don’t let those pants that shrunk in the wash get your down! You can do it!

Q: Can you lose stomach fat and build a six pack in around 10 weeks, just with stomach excercises?
Or in other words, is it possible to loose stomach fat just by doing muscle exercises and healthy diet, or is lots of walking, cycling (medium to high cardio) also necessary?

A: the truth of the matter is that you need to do cardiovascular exercises and abdominal exercises. the cardio exercises(cycling running swimming) will burn off any fat and the abdominal exercises will build the muscle. also you need to eat healthily. visit and that hould get you started

Q: How does one differentiate between stomach pain from taking Plan B and stomach pain from an ectopic pregnancy?
Stomach pain is a typical side effect of taking Plan B but there is also a small risk for an ectopic pregnancy, which has a symptom of stomach pain. How does one tell the difference? What other symptoms would indicate an ectopic pregnancy rather than just typical side effects of Plan B? Thanks.

A: Plan B prevents pregnancy just days after the woman has sex. An ectopic pregnancy takes just as long to implant as a normal pregnancy, 7-10 days. An ectopic pregnancy has pain located mostly on one side and may move to the center of the abdomen. It’s extremely tender and the woman may have nausea and dizzyness. Hope that helps.

The answer is exceedingly simple. The norovirus causes the spasms.

Q: How does your stomach feel during the first month of pregnency?
My girlfriend said that her stomach feels like it is “falling out”. Also she throws up through-out the day. Is she pregnant or is it just a stomach flu or other sickness?

A: If your girlfriend is throwing up throughout the night, then yes, maybe she is pregnant. During my first couple of months of pregnancy, I felt normal. It’s just the sickness you go through but you don’t start feeling stomach pains until about the 3rd, maybe the 4th month. Other then that, the baby is still forming.

Q: What can I do to make my stomach proportionate with the rest of my body?
I am very thin but my stomach is big. Specifically as the day progresses, my stomach gets big to the point of passing as pregnant.

Why is it that there are heavier people with small stomachs but I’m a skinny person with a big stomach?

Does anyone else have this problem?
I feel like I can’t eat anything if I want my stomach to look NORMAL.

A: oh my goodness, i feel like we’re sisters. I have that same problem.
