Our expert says:
Generally it is fat that is deposited between the layers of muscle in the abdomen. If the person is overweight then it is necessary for him to lose weight all round. To lose weight you need to decrease your energy intake by eating a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy) and expend more energy by doing regular exercise (join a good gym and start working out ASAP). Ask the gym instructor for a set of targeted exercises (such as sit-ups) which will make the muscles of this abdomen work hard and firm up again.
