Losing the last five pounds to slip into your dream dress may not be as hard as you think! Marcus Williams of BlackDoctor.org has crafted some quick tips to lose weight — and inches — on your tummy and thighs. Check them out and get inspired to look fit and fabulous…. Step 1: Cardio Confusion Do one hour of cardio four times a week. Try different workouts, from elliptical to running to spinning, but try something new every day for 2 weeks and your body will experience cardio confusion, which results in your body burning more calories each workout. Step 2: Sexy Sculpting Take one hour of sculpting ballet, light toning exercises, yoga or pilates class twice a week. This form of exercise will create a feminine and sexy line of lean. Step 3: Eat Right Be sure to eat lean protein and lots of veggies and other lower glycemic carbs. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water, and try to avoid all soda, even diet. Also, try to eat the majority of your calories during the day, and not at night.
