Hitting the gym may not be the only way to attack extra inches that accumulate around the waistline. A study published in May in the Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that tai chi may be just as effective for slimming down the midsection of people 50 and older as group workouts offered in many gyms.

The research included 380 people in Hong Kong who participated in either a 12-week tai chi program, a regular exercise program, or no intervention.

Compared with those not participating in an activity, people in the tai chi and conventional exercise programs dropped centimeters off their waists after the three months of the intervention and sustained the reduction more than six months later.
