    LS, though it is shiva you ask, let me share what i have understood. i also have the same issue, and i believe we are suffering that because of those hormonal steroids and other issues..

    you can try simple pilates for the tummy lying down..you can also try abdominal excercises that require you to lie straight on the ground, without putting weight on your legs.check you tube you will find a few.search for supine abdominal workouts..but beware these are not for people who have had surgeries..so take it slow..

    but initially go into workout mode by walking. i have lost a lot of weight only by walking and walking..nothing else. you have seen the results..so we will go slow..don't worry.

    Hi Shiva,

    Hope you are doing well. I need some help from you again.

    After i lost weight, i noticed last year that in winter i put on 4-6 lbs but could lose it again in summer. Again this winter i hv put on 4 lbs even though i was almost walking everyday.

    Currently i have joined back gym and have set the goal of losing 10lbs by this june and also losing one size jeans i.e. toning my tummy..esp lower abs.

    I lost weight last time when i switched from rice eating to roti/cracked wheat. But now im noticing any shift in weight with the same diet.My concerns:

    1.What changes should i make in the diet in terms of b/fast,lunch and dinner.
    2. I tried oats for lunch with regular curry and dal for 5 days but did not find any change in weight. Do you feel oats will be a better replacement for roti/dalia? Or shd i try some mix-match menu (as im assuming my weight has plateaued)
    3. I hardly did weights throughout my weight maintenance phase.Should i be doing weights seriously to lose inches around tummy?
    4. Any other tips welcome,as you have guided me earlier. Im not able to re-establish the connection between diet and exercise.
