Ok, first of all, I do mean what I said in the title above...

Secondly, I am so confused man. I would like to have a flat tummy, and I have been sitting up, but then more and more I heard and learned that sitting up is only for the muscle at the gut area, not really to burn fat.

I have tried googling but then there's this like a lot of varieties of advices and tips, until it doesn't make sense anymore. So, need real advice from real people here. What is the best way to burn fat in tummy and thigh area? I don't really have much of those equipments you guys use, so can jogging alone do the job?

I don't really want muscle, what I want is to burn the fat because it looks annoying... lol.. The previous threads only talked about how to build muscles...and I don't need to go to doctor, because it's not critical yet, as suggested in one previous thread.

Thank you so much...

You can't spot lose. You have to decrease the body fat for your entire body. The good news is men tend to store fat around the waist, so you should see the greatest change there.

You need to run, swim, bike, anything that gets your heart rate up.

If you don't want to get bulky, then use lighter weights and do high reps.

One last thing. Strengthen your back. It will help hold in your stomach and also helps with better posture, which is another reason guy's stomachs hang out.

Edit: Here is a good site for exercises

100 crunches a day and a diet low in fat does it for me!

Thank you! Will try that... But crunches are for muscles right?

As others said... you can't spot reduce. To lose bodyfat you have to eat less or burn more calories or a combination of BOTH to create a calorie deficet. A proper diet is the key, however it also involves a lifestyle change of eating habits if you want to remain slim and trim.

It's the roti canai and the white rice. Cut them out!

Plain white rice has a G.I. close to refined sugar. Go for Basmati.

Also your drinks: order them "kurang manis" ;)

Whoa! I'm intrigued...!

*refocusing...

Okay, so white rice is not really good right? Ok, will try to avoid that too...

*Back to being intrigued...

How the hell did you know about roti canai and kurang manis?? You've been here?

I've done several expeditions into the M'sian mountain rainforest in the period 2002-2007, and was involved with a rehabilitation project in some of the national parks. Also, I've done quite a few trips to Borneo.

I have to say, I found eating in the M'sian cities to be challenging. The food was sometimes quite tasty, but very unhealthy: lots of oil and white rice and sugary drinks.

However, my favourite food when I was in Tawow (deliberately misspelt so that this doesn't show up in a search engine) was Ikan Bakar with sambal chilli, and I loved the teh o ais limau, kurang manis, on a hot day :umbrella:
(Excuse the spelling)

This meal was delicious as well as being heathly. I came back from those trips with about 9% body fat. But these were hardcore expeditions, with 16 hours of virtually non-stop activity per day. Its hard to maintain that in an urban setting!

Sounds like you had fun! Glad that my country has given you the enjoyment.

Best advice to avoid getting a tummy: don't age.

Now, if you want to know how not to age, I got zero suggestions.

aww, Joe, having hard time ageing?

for Lopo,


This was a white water trip in northern Thailand with my ex gf. I was about 10.5 to 11% body fat here, as measured when I got back to the city, by a friend who was a fitness instructor.

Um, how did you measure your fat again? Is there a device or something? or can it be approximately measured just like that? If that flat tummy of yours is 11%, I don't want to know about mine :dot:

There were two methods he used. One was a caliper on the skin of the tummy, arm and back. The other method was a electrical resistivity test (two thumbs on a small machine). These results were plotted against height and weight. Quite simple, altogether about 5 mins to do.

Lopo,
answering your private question about the grilled fish.

Here's a pic. We caught a few of these off Pulau Mabul, while taking a respite from the scuba diving at Sipadan.

Really yummy. I think they are called ikarn putay in Malay. (again Ive deliberately misspelt, but I think you'll know what I am talking about).

The Americans on this site will recognise them as a relative of Pompano. Caranx ignobilis is the scientific name.

There's nothing wrong with having some muscle difinition on your stomach. A six pack is desirable. That is what I would like to have. It requires hard work and eating right. I am 5'6", weigh 143 pounds. I wear
size 29-30 inch trousers, but don't have a six pack. I need to work out harder and cut out pizza. During spring of '09 I weighed 137 pounds. I can do 400+ crunches if I want to. I usually do 300 when I go to the gym. Go for the six pack!

I would love to but it requires life commitment or your tummy will look even uglier... For me, it'll be enough to just burn the fat and look trimmer... :)

Well take heart, Lopo.

Malaysian men can develop some of the hottest bods, thanks to a naturally low body fat. It's a matter of correct diet and good exercise.

Here's a pic of a very fit guide from one of my expeditions. He had never seen the inside of a gym. His superb body was the product of an active lifestyle and a good diet.

(Footnote: he doesn't normally get around in a towel. This was the end of a long day's trek, we had just gone for a swim in the river!)

PS: that guy was amazing. I have personally watched him carry two rucksacks up a mountain that two unfit clients were unwilling to carry for themselves.

Check out his vastus medialis (inner thigh) and his calves. I spent a gruelling 2 hours watching those things pump 100kg+ uphill. (His own body weight plus 2 rucksacks).

Cardiovascular exercises will help you burn fat overall and focused weight training regime could help you tone specific areas on your body.

Diet plays an important part too but personally I wouldn't ask anyone to impose a limit on their intake as long as they can lose what they eat proportionally - through exercise, of course. Do, however, choose what you eat.

It won't be easy but it's not impossible. Good luck, mate. :)

No, I'm not particularly fit. I just know personal trainers and doctors.

I'll see what I can do. Perhaps a cruel forceful personal trainer can help me achieve it. But, if I do it alone, I'd probably just get to being trimmed only.
