Dear Reader
In some cases a protruding abdomen can be caused by underlying conditions such as the spastic colon which can result in daily bloating. It is always a good idea to have a medical checkup just to see if there is no additional problem or if the current problem can be treated more effectively. On the other hand large tummies can be of genetic origin. Does this tendency run in your family? Exercise can assist to firm up the muscles of your tummy, so do ask Fitness Doc for a set of firming up exercises. There are also certain products that can help to firm tummies -contact Lilian Terry International at (021) 361-2606 and ask about their Cellulito Aromeopathic Complexes.
Best regards
