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.
Since there is no such thing as "spot reduction," you need to eat well and do regular aerobic activity. Take the stairs, get off the subway a stop earlier, park your car a little further away to burn any fat that may get in the way of seeing your hard-earned stomach muscles.

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."
