Isn't it necessary to have the stomach muscles developed before a flat stomach?

Are you sure the "gastrointestinal release" is from OJ? Fruits and vegetables seem to have much more of an effect on one's digestive system than OJ (for me anyway).

Bananas, apples, other fruits and veggies (I think) would seem to be more of the culprit...

Its pretty well developed, but fat is covering it, a very little amount of fat, but just enough not to make it flat. I used to take care of myself better and kind of let myself go the last 2 semesters (‘letting myself go’ is a very relative term, since I am the only one that apparently noticed, and am still damn skinny).

kind of tough. nearly a decade ago, i once did 6 beer chugging contests (16 oz plastic cups, i.e., a US pint) within an hour in college (i think a half hour), interspersed with some minor drinking, and then stepped out and puked nearly pure beer. just couldn't keep the volume in my stomach. and that's not even a full gallon (6 pints = 3/4 a gallon, although the extra drinking might have taken me close to a gallon).

never tried it again.

orange juice like coke , in its carbohydrate content is just as bad as coke.

drinking oj in place of coke (if you were jugging a liter a day suppose) is still the not good thing to do and will make you prone to diabetes as well.


in terms of acid and caffeine and such , of course oj is better for you, and has the vitamins and minerals coke doesnt.

i am speaking only in terms of caloric /carb content. it should not be drunk like water.

I rather like my slightly pudgy belly.

OJ isn't unhealthy per-se (far better than coke) but it is VERY sugary.

Treat fruits like "snacks". They're healthy, but too much isn't too good. I drink only water these days...

Start drinking water, lots.

Carry one or three around with you.

Put some in the freezer the night before and let it melt during the day (ice water is incredibly during summer).

I used to be a pop addict but now I can't stand the stuff and average anywhere between 5-8 water bottles a day.

Don't drink any juices. They usually have more calories than soda.

If you want to drink something, drink seltzer water with a wedge of lime.
post #26 of 30
What's the lime for?
I've heard that the lime & dirt diet is very effect, but I never understood the purpose of the lime

it adds flavor

If you want to lose the fat around your belly, eat more fat and lay off the carbs. Body fat and carbs get along really well, but when dietary fat comes along, body fat gets all jealous and splits.

Yeah, I love OJ to death, but I only drink it immediately before or after workouts (when your body can actually put the carbs to good, immediate use), and not at any other times. In general, I try to avoid any sugars except right around workouts. Milk is my only exception.

If orange juice is causing stomach distress, the fructose might be to blame.
