If you want o get rid of an small belly then you need to eat healthy and do core exercise. There is no easy path for a good shape.
I understand what you're saying for a lot of people, who actually need to make changes, but I also know you realize that's not the case for everyone.
I'm talking about the kind of belly that is a small amount of fat, in the front, below the navel. That's the feature I have, and weight or fitness level have nothing to do with it.
I would literally have to be liposuctioned to remove it, and no way would I ever do that.
I'm saying this as a PSA for anyone (particularly women) who stress because they have a body part whose presence they inherited from a parent.
I'm talking about like in the picture on the left. The one on the right is after surgery of some type.
When the woman looked like she did in the left panel, she could have lost any amount of weight, exercised, but I think she would always have that little pooch of lower tummy. Maybe a little smaller, but not much.
BTW, I think she looks fine in the first photo, and wonder what drives people to go through the expense, pain and risk to get rid of maybe a pound of a little fat.
