Flaccid? Without definition? If you hide your abdomen and believe me we have all gone through that, whatever your age is, this is what you must do to mold it quickly.
Your abdomen has the potential to look better than ever because you will likely be able to make time for exercise, so your body can burn more calories at a faster rate, which translates into less accumulated fat.
Do not miss your exercise schedules. Many younger women are thin, but their muscles are not toned or in good physical shape.
If before you turn 30 you do not have enough toned muscles, your ability to burn calories will become slower when you pass 30, by gaining weight more quickly.
Losing weight too fast will eliminate muscle, which in turn is replaced with fat. This can make your belly bulge, even if you are not overweight.
And there are also the nights when you go out with your friends. Several studies show that excess alcohol and poor eating habits can add excessive weight, particularly around your belly.

Ideally, you can try adding 20 minutes of toning exercises 3 to 4 times a week.
