Whittle your waist

You can combat belly fat with exercise and a smart diet, improving your overall health and the shape of your waistline. Do these five ab-flattening exercises three times a week. All you need is a firm but comfortable place to lie down (use a mat if you like), a broomstick and a little determination.
