    How many Calories should you have within the day?

    • GaleCompton  November 24, 2013

      That depends on each individual. We don't promote restricted caloric diets. Our site encourages clean eating and regular exercise. By eating clean, using portion control and doing moderate exercise 30 minutes daily, most individuals can reach their desired weight.

    Out of the 7 day melt my muffin top challenge, this 7 day ab challenge, the 10 minute belly fat burning workout, and the flat belly workout, which would you consider the most effective and fastest way to get a flat, toned stomach?

    • SkinnyMs  January 28, 2015

      Julia, I would take the 7 Day Abs Challenge.

  5. Dawn  July 4, 2016

    I had lower back surgery April 15th. The Dr. said I can get back to excercising. Will these ab workouts be appropriate?

    • Gale Compton  July 4, 2016

      Dawn, I recommend finding a workout and getting your doctor’s approval. I would definitely take it slow and gradually get back into a regular workout routine. We have tons of workouts for every muscle group, have a look!

    I’m am currently 208 pounds and I’m trying to slim down to 150-130 pounds by August 20. Which diet do you prefer for me, how many minutes should I eat a day?

    • Emilia Horn  May 2, 2017

      Kay, we recommend a healthy, balanced diet of lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats, but you should talk to your doctor if you’re trying to lose a lot of weight in a short period of time.
