WEIGHT LOSS TIP: One of the big goals that most people have in losing weight is to reduce the size of their waists which is where being overweight usually shows the most and is therefore what is most noticeable when someone loses weight.
Unfortunately many people are under the mistaken impression that they can somehow spot reduce this part of their body and they end up spending the majority of their time doing exercises targeting their abdominals. If you spend all your time exercising your abdominal muscles it will actually be counterproductive to your overall effort to lose weight because you will end up overtraining your abdominals and you will derive little weight loss benefit from spending all your time training this relatively small muscle group.

Since exercising larger muscle groups like your legs and back work much larger muscle groups than the muscles around your waist you will actually gain much more of a benefit toward losing weight around your waist by exercising these muscles located elsewhere on your body. You should also approach your diet and supplement program in the same way because there is nothing that you can eat or any supplement that you can take that will only get rid of fat around your waist. Therefore, if your top priority from losing weight is to have a small waist then you should follow a sensible diet, exercise and supplement program that will help you to lose weight all over your body and as you lose weight you will ultimately begin to notice that your waist is becoming smaller.
