Quoting swesolek6:diet is 90% of the belly fat problem.the cleaner you eat, the leaner you become. I'm still personally working on.this problem.lol
Cardio. Cardio. Cardio. Less processed foods, more fruits and vegetables.
eat small, healthy nutritionally balanced meals throughout the day, and excercise, pretty straightforward. if you go to a gym I like a machine that basically replicated sit ups, but you sat in a chair and pushed weights forward with your stomach. but in all reality, you don't need a gym membership or a fancy machine to stay fit. going biking, jogging, or swimming for at least 60 minutes a day should be enough to show you some results in a few months.
you should eat a balanced diet, combining the diet with physical exercise. Walking is good exercise that is expensive and gives very good results over time.
I've lost 8 inches off my stomach - I was doing an abs workout everyday that I found in the app store (was basically about a 10 minute abs workout - burned abour 60-80 calories each workout, and was strictly targeting the abs) with minimal sit ups. Also, cardio cardio cardio is what really helped me the most, of course, in conjunction with eating much healthier. I try to stay away from fast food, and too much processed foods. We eat a lot of chicken, fish, and fresh fruits and veggies.
Like others have mentioned, it's really cardio even though many people seem to think crunches do it. But they don't. I used to be (and still am somewhat) one of those unfortunate people who actually has really strong abs, but they're a bit difficult to see under my belly fat. But I've been working on that by running and all of a sudden, my abs look more defined despite not doing any targeted ab work. The muscle tone was under there all the time, just covered by fat!
CARDIO, it takes 35 minutes to burn the glucose that is already available in your system. After that you are burning straight fat reserves (fat in your abs).
you can't spot reduce. all you can do is lose weight slowly overtime. if you have extra weight in your stomach, then you will eventually lose it there.
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.
