BASIC TRAINING.

Q: I'm 36 and have two kids. Over the years I had put on some weight. I had a tummy tuck on my lower abs that left me with fat on my upper abs. What can I do to get rid of this?

-- Tanya Bailey

Los Angeles

A: Plastic surgery and liposuction are quick fixes for one area. If you don't incorporate a healthy lifestyle, the body fat will return or move elsewhere. If you're going to invest money in surgery, you should also invest time into taking care of your body. To get rid of the fat that is now storing in your upper abdomen, I suggest a healthy eating plan and an exercise program. Focus on what is necessary for a healthy life and everything else will fall in place. It's fine to do a little extra work for your problem areas, but don't miss the big picture -- an overall lifestyle change.

Bicycle crunches can help with the upper abdomen. Do three sets of 20 reps.
