Answered by Jocelyn Martin on Apr 17, 2013

How does someone tighten the skin around the abdomen when losing weight?

10 Answers | Asked by Joanne Doorey on Apr 16, 2013

Some things you can do for that is to drink plenty of water, eat a diet rich in healthy fiber ( fruits, veggies, whole grains), eat lean meats, reduce your consumption of ...
