Butt bigger and stomach smaller
- For a smaller stomach you need to do cardio exercise. Cardio is the best fat burning exercise. A healthy diet is essential, too. Make good use of 'fat burning' foods and quality protein. In addition, colon cleansing can help. Eliminate all junk food and refined (processed) carbohydrates. Allow yourself treats just once per week. Doing yoga (for breathing techniques) while doing cardio exercise can also help.
- To get a better butt do weight training. Eat small amounts of good carbs such as low carbohydrate berries and non-starchy vegetables before working out. Make good use of fat burning foods such as quality protein. Increase your daily water intake by at least three glasses. When working out always increase your resistance and reps at least once a week and change your exercises every few days.
- Contrary to popular belief, crunches alone will not help you get a flatter stomach. All this will do is build muscle UNDERNEATH the layer of fat that already exists. To get rid of this layer of fat, you must first change your eating habits (more veggies and less refined carbohydrates and fatty foods. Do cardio exercise, such as brisk walking, for 20-30 minutes 3-5 times a week. Only do abs exercise after you have lost the fat.

- Exercises that you can try: Squats. Those really do work. When you go down, squeeze your butt so it firms it. Look straight ahead and squeeze your bum while bending your knees. Try using heavy weights that allow you to do only 6-15 reps of squats. Ball squats. This is an alternative to traditional squats. Place an exercise ball against a wall so you can rest the middle part of your back on it. Hold weights in each hand and lower your body down, legs hip wide apart. Lunges. (However, some suggest squats rather than lunges, saying that lunges may flatten and tighten your butt, while squats will make it rounder and firmer.) Walking lunges. Kickbacks or "donkey kicks". This is where you kick your leg back while on all fours. Do 12 repetitions with 2 sets, three times a week. Standing kickbacks with weight. Side and back kick outs. Stairs. Try running up and down stairs holding in your stomach Walk uphill on your toes (this also builds your calves). Jog on a treadmill with a hill incline. Running bleachers. Leg curls. Weight training (by target training), remembering that you have to tightly squeeze the butt in order to target that area. The buttblaster at the gym.

- If you can afford it, get a personal trainer and tell him or her exactly what you want to achieve. Do not just ask the person at the gym unless he or she is professionally qualified. If you plan it yourself, you may want to try the following books: The Woman's Body Bible (Adrianna Bocanegra). Women's Strength Training Anatomy (Frederic Delavier). Fit for your shape (Matt Roberts). The body sculpting bible for women (James Villepigue).
- Do not overdue it, more than 45 minutes exercise continuously can be negative, producing excess cortisol, a hormone with great importance in how we assimilate fats. Do not train every day, the muscle only develops with alternate periods of exercise-rest.
