Patient discussion about waist

Q. What is a best home workout for weight loss around the stomach and waist? I can't go outside a lot, so I do Pilates. I want to know more workouts for weight loss.

A. There is no natural way to target your stomach fat. You can pay for lipo suction, but that is the easy and expensive way out. Plus if you don't put the work into it then you won't appreciate the results as much.

I would focus on a total body fat loss program. Combining cardio with resistance training and sprinkling in some high intensity interval training is a great way to boost your fat loss. Then focus on eating healthier. Start off slowly though so that you don't get overwhelmed and feel like quitting. Go for walks, eat a few meals a day that are healthier with fruits and veggies, then eat regularly for the rest of the day. The point is to gradually transform your habits into healthier ones.
