Unfortunately, exercise by itself won't reduce fat. In fact, certain exercise can cause you to be more hungry, eat more and gain weight (although it may be muscle weight). To lose weight, you need to have a low sugar/high fiber diet. Check out the mediterranean diet as well - there is new good data supporting its use! best of luck!
