Eating Smart
Many packaged crackers are loaded with fat. If you want to see how much fat is in a cracker, but don't have access to the box, rub it with a paper napkin. Crackers that leave grease marks are probably high in fat, so you might want to eat them in small amounts.
Staying Active
We've heard it before, but it's worth repeating: spot reduction does not work. Studies show that people who regularly do as many as 100 sit-ups a day have no significant loss of abdominal fat. If you'd like to trim your waist or tummy, concentrate on aerobic exercise for fat burning and do sit-ups to help tone stomach muscles.
