Abs in trouble

Hi,
We need to eat more to get results. Right? I always eat more. But I face problems like acidity or gas trouble etc. Now a days those problems have significantly reduced.
Another thing is that my stomach is not flat but a little bit fleshy. Will eating more affect my stomach measurements? What should I do to reduce my waist size? Because I have been told by someone by exercising your ab muscles only increases their strength and tone. But it doesn't reduce their size. What your view on this? Because this is also true that if you have all shaped up body but your abs are not flat and fine, then you lose the points. I need advice on this.

Thanks.

    Working abs will not make your stomach looks smaller, you cannot spot treat fat. Fro example "omg i've got fat arms, i better do some more bicep curls" .. its just bullsh!t m8, you have to loose fat everywhere to reduce bodyfat%

    in most cases yes it will.

    if you are trying to build stop worrying about your stomach 6 pack nonsense ask anyone here when building one of the first things youll probably notice is your waist will increase in size. as will your legs arms chest etc

    dolex is right you cannot spot burn fat even though half these adverts on tv tell you otherwise..

    Hi all,
    Thanks for replying.
    Does it mean I should ignore my stomach fat right now? But then when and how should I burn it? After 6 months, 12 months.. I am confused. Yes I have been told the same thing by my other friends also. Plz tell when and how to lose it?
    Have u faced the same problem when u were at early stages of ur bulking???

    Thanks.

    in most cases yes..
    when should you burn it........well that is up to you, depends how happy you are with your bulked weight.. if u eat clean you wont put on much BF.


    how to lose it ... cardio.. swimming pacey walks i find are good as they dont disturb muscle.. fat burners such as ECA stacks are the best to try but should be taken at different intervals to avoid body getting to use to the drug.
    eca sticky in the other performance drug pages will help detail this product

    your diet has to be spot on when bulking if you are worried bout putting on size around your stomach. if you gain fat easy eat real clean. you SHOULD put on fat if bulking successfully as you should be taking in more calories then you are using. But that deficit need only be small. if you notice you have put on a lot of fat in a short time, eat a few less calories, do a couple more cv sessions a week.

    what are you looking for? big muscles well formed arms chest and abs? not got them yet? well you wont get any of them by cutting soon as you put on some fat. get your self as muscular as you truely want to be, watch your calorie intake but dont be afraid of some extra size on your stomach, get the job done then worry bout cutting.

    Hey all,
    Thanks for replying. I am a bit confused. Thanks for giving me support. Yes my goal is muscular body. Not just arms or chest but overall development. Ok shall I try 'skipping'? skipping means jumping on ut toes with a rope in hand. U must be knowing. Plz tell me which exercises can I do at home to control fat.

    Thanks

    chest and arms were jus examples, if you want to bulk you will put on fat. you can limit it by doing things like skipping or some hiit trainng (see cardio forum) 2-3 times per week and eat a clean diet. but you must get your priorities rite. do you wana get bigger muscularly? or lose weight? you can do both but you should put priority to the one you want most. e.g. if you want to put on some muscle, dont be afraid to put on a bit around the waiste.

    ok. I will go on with this answer. Let me increase my muscles first. Then I shall take care of the waist. Is it possible really, to lose the fat on waist afterwards? coz I as far as my little knowledge is concerned, increasing weight is easy but loosing it is hard.

    its not hard, jus takes effort. like everything we do. once you've got the muscularity you are after, all you have to do is sort out your diet, making it really clean and with less calories and do lots more cv. it can be done and you will do it.i dont know bout you but i put fat on real easy. can tell if iv eaten too much cos it goes straight on my belly. but my main priority is muscle size at the mo. im constantly thinking whether i have eaten enough, too much or not enough and am slowly getting my diet spot on. you can too.go onto the diet forum and get lots of info on bulking diets, use these principles but be aware that everyone is different. your body will tell you if your eating far too many calories. but to re-iterate, calories are good on bulk! you will lose that fat later
