Aerobics and strength-training have long been known to aid fat loss and improve body composition. Yoga and meditation have more recently been understood to assist in weight loss, maintenance and improved body composition as well.


An exercise device and method of use thereof, including an exercise platform and an incline base that can be used together or separately.

The second invention is titled “Stomach belt for weight loss” and is disclosed by application number US 11/243,301.

Exercising ensures the loss of fat as well as toxins through sweat. The entire act is normally followed by gulping down gallons of water or an alternate drink to replace the lost water. Okay!
