Default Losing a pouch

I have a friend who was think her entire life. When i say thin, I
mean too thin.

A few years ago she had a baby. Now she has a little pouch in her
tummy. She wants to know how to get rid of this little pouch, before
it gets bigger. She has not experience with excercise.

What should she do? By the way, she is 43.

Thanks

She may have seperation of the recti muscles which would require surgery to
fix. Diastasis Recti is the name of it and it can be severe enough to cause
a ventral hernia. Have her lay on her back, and pretend to start a sit-up.
If she can insert her fingers into the center of her flexed abdomen, then
there is seperation. She can see a plastic surgeon for proper diagnosis, but
if it is severe enough it is not considered a cosmetic surgery.

here's the answer: exercise! don't suggest she start
looking for some esoteric problem to excuse her fat tummy.
just cause she looks thin doesn't mean she doesn't have high
body fat. plenty ( i would say most) of thin girls are actually
high b.f. (like 25%). they just have so little muscle, they look
thin.

get her to start eating better. working out hard. lifting
weights. situps. if she won't, then she's stuck with
this little pouch that probably nobody else can see anyway.
