Submitted by Kevin Pederson on February 17, 2012

Obesity has become a very serious condition and is causing a lot of medical complications in people. Many people therefore today are turning to the advantages of yoga and regular exercise to burn off all the additional layers of fat that they have put on. This additional fat is basically the result of the fast foods and high calorie foods that they consume or have consumed on a regular basis.

Although most individuals would usually either concentrate on following a specific diet or getting a tremendous amount of exercise, the key actually lies in following both methods together. Getting the right amount of exercise while also watching the kinds of food you eat not only helps burn the excess calories in the body, but also converting some of that mass into muscle. Building muscle adds a significant amount of definition to an individual's overall appearance and is therefore highly advised.

The fat situated around the belly is probably the hardest of fat to lose. One is likely to have built some amount of muscle before he or she is able to lose the belly flab. The best way to lose this stubborn fat is primarily to regularly perform a few exercises that are focused on the specific areas. Normal crunches are probably the most commonly performed ab exercises for men. These could be performed simply by lying down on the floor with your legs folded at the knees and the hands placed below the neck with the shoulders a little elevated. Curl your body up so the shoulders and upper back are lifted off the ground and towards the folded knees. Maintain this position for a period of roughly a few seconds before returning to your original posture. Another very highly recommended ab exercise for men is where you lie down on the floor, while keeping your feet apart at a distance of your shoulder width. Lift up the lower part of your torso and remain in this posture for a few seconds. Repeating the exercise for about 15 to 20 times is likely to have a significant effect on the loss of excess fat. Another very effective exercise is known as the knee up crunches. For this exercise you need to lie on the floor and lift your feet while ensuring that they are perpendicular to the floor. Then proceed to rotate your pelvis backwards while curling up your hips. Repeat the exercise about 20 times for it to be effective.
