Do you need to lose: this weight? Risking health to be SKINNY isn't worth it. If there is an indication for this type of loss - then the following applies. Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some may be waist fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed.
