Spot fat loss does : Not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be abdominal 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. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge ; “bicycling” exercise on back. Do regular aerobic exercise.

A Verified Doctor answered
None: There are no diets that specifically target abdominal fat. That is you cannot spot lose. However, low carb/high protein diets and exercise can help reduce fat overall and will help in the abdominal region as well.

Diet and exercise: Only treatment that works is diet and exercise. Eat less then you burn off. 3500 calories to the pound. Will reduce your risk of diabetes, high bp, heart disease, cholesterol, infertility, etc. Direct exercise towards your abdominal muscles to firm them up. Otherwise, consider liposuction, don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet - it's all garbage.
