Dear Tiny Young Thing,

I know you came to my blog by googling "im 14 and i eat okay but i still can't get my abs to indent." And I'm sorry that you didn't find any advice on how to get your abs to "indent,"...whatever that means.

But I will offer you this: stomachs aren't supposed to be concave. They hold your guts and your abdominal muscles, which, when strong, generally tend to make your belly a bit convex.

Kudos to you if you're overweight or unhealthy and want to do something about it. But, if you're just trying to get your belly to do this:

then I suggest that you quit while you're ahead. And alive.

There's a part of my heart that breaks knowing there's a 14 year old out there (among a sea of many, I imagine) searching for such a thing.

That is kind of disturbing.

That quest is totally unrealistic and damn unhealthy.
