Harley Pasternak Blogs: How to Get Great Abs

Originally posted 09/26/2012 01:30PM

Few things are as sexy as a lean, sculpted midsection.

Whether it be the sexy midriff on Rihanna or the trim abs of Robert Pattinson, a toned midsection is imperative if you want to look good with – or without – clothes.

The first thing you should know about getting a great midsection is that you have to get rid of the fat covering the area.

More than half the pet dogs and cats in the U.S. are overweight or obese, and it seems one of them lives at the White House.

President Barack Obama advised the young guests at the first ever Kids' State Dinner on Monday against passing any helpings to the First Dog, according to U.S. News & World Report.

"I only have one request for you," Obama told the 54 winners of First Lady Michelle Obama's healthy recipe competition, "and that is try not to drop any scraps on the floor."

"Bo is on a diet right now," he said, "and he will eat anything that he sees, especially some of the tasty meals that you guys have prepared."

She lost 50 lbs. two years ago, and Sara Rue has stayed committed to her healthy lifestyle – so much so that she's even buddied up with her two dogs.

"My dogs are older so it's really important for me to get out and take a walk with them," she tells PEOPLE. "Otherwise they would lay around all day and not do too much."

The dogs, both rescues, are Biscuit, a Chihuahua-Pomeranian-terrier mix (pictured), and Bucket, a springer spaniel mix, and they help Rue keep her own heart rate up. "It's good for us both to be active," she says.
