The sad thing is that pizza, pasta and T-bone steaks are perfectly healthy as long as you prepare them the right way. Absolutely nothing wrong with a pizza or pasta made from whole grains and fresh ingredients. A t-bone steak is good but control your portion and don't have fries and the pre-packaged sauce with it. The things you should avoid you don't mention: artificial stuff and sugar laden (or worse: HFCS) things like desserts, cookies, pre-made or ordered meals, etc.

I don't know your diet but a woman your age doesn't have to be overweight. There is no natural law that says you get fat at that point, it's just the wrong diet that screws you over by then.

ILLB, I know the Shouldice clinic is a reputable hospital (been there with our son), so I'll check the diet out. Never heard of Ultherapy... will check that out too. Thanks.

Let me know if you can't find the diet. DM me and I can email my friend in Canada and ask her to send it to me.

The Ultherapy isn't cheap but my friend's results were amazing and she had 5 kids. But there are many places that won't do the Ultherapy on bellies. It is made for the face, but some will. BUT there are so many other types of laser that tighten belly skin. Here is one I found. I am not promoting this site, just showing you what to look for.

I think following the Shouldice diet will do the trick and you will look amazing Good Luck!

Hey look at this one I found...it's called "venus freeze" this looks interesting! Venus Treatments | Venus Freeze Treatments

I am seeing in this area it is $1,500 for 2 treatments and you get the 3rd treatment free. So it's expensive but not as bad as lipo.

I never had lipo myself, but do know a couple of people who did, and it was basically a waste - they gained back all the fat and more, and as others have said, in places they did not want. I too, have a good figure except for some excess belly fat, but I am trying my hardest just to eat correctly and work out and hope it shrinks naturally.

Good luck to you.

I didn't have liposuction, but I had Coolsculpting done a couple of days ago. It reduces fat by about 20-25%. Only thing is it takes about 3 months to see results because it takes the body that long to absorb the deal fat cells.
