Tips For A Flat Belly!

Many of the web sites I visit, including Facebook, are laced with advertising. Nearly 75% of those ads offer promises of a flat belly. I'm not sure whether Google (or whoever hosts these spots) knows about my body and feeds me the enticing little tidbits, or if 6-pack abs are in such demand, everyone one the Internet sees them.

To better catch my attention, the blurbs feature a sexy girl in a little white top, or a muscly dude with 0% body fat. All you need to do is click on the ad and you should receive the secret the melts away body fat without diet or exercise!

However, all you get is another website full of testimonials about some weird fruit from Africa or South America that transforms your body at a low, low cost. All you need to do is pay the ridiculously high shipping costs! To further their claims, the sites feature before and after photos of people who not only lost 50, 100 or 150 pounds, but reversed their age by as much as 15 years (according to the pictures). To provide a degree of veracity to the claims, the web sites appear to have been features on ABC, NBC and CBS news! So you know it must be true.

Bullshit!

There is only one way to lose weight: consume fewer calories than you expend in a day. That's it.

Anyone who tells you different wants your money.

Now that's getting right down to the point.
As comsumers we are so dumb, we'll believe anything. Duh..us? If it worked everyone would know about it and be using it.

i HATE those commercial ads. You click on them, and they will not let you escape.

That's some rock solid photo shop. Look at her arms, if her abs where really that good her arms would look like chiseled porcelain.

Love this post. My abs actually look just like the photo you posted. but they do because I work my ass off.
I eat healthy and I lift weights.

I agree there is no other "quickie" way to accomplish this.
BUt good ole hard work.
