Dr. Oz: How to Get Rid of Menopause Stomach Fat

By on February 15, 2010

Dr. Oz was asked by Diane, someone in his audience, about why women get that pouch of fat around their stomach after or around menopause.

Dr. Oz checked Diane’s stomach to make sure it wasn’t a hernia (which it can be sometimes), but more often it is because when the ovaries stop making testosterone, the muscles get more lax.  Then the weakness between the muscles (that are often stretched out during pregnancy) make your stomach droop and you get a pouch of what looks like fat around your belly.  The best way to get rid of this stomach pouch is not a tummy tuck… it’s to do the plank exercise!  Lie down on your tummy on the floor.  Push up so you are like a straight plan on your tip toes and your forearms… and keep your behind down… it is called plank because you are supposed to be straight and flat like a plank!  If you get really good at this, try lifting up your right leg in the air.
