Eat less; & exercise: Helpful weight loss diets include natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (without salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits contain natural sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, regardless of where it comes from.

Sorry but: Unfortunately it is not possible to create regional fat loss by any method. Best bet is a nutritional weight loss diet with aerobic exercise 30-60 min 3-5 days/ week.

Over all fat loss.: There is no such thing as spot fat loss. You would need to lose weight in general & a certain proportion of that will be abdominal fat. However you can improve your appearance by toning your abs. To tighten your abdominal muscles consider doing crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & the “bicycling” exercise on your back. Insure that.

you are engaging in regular aerobic exercise. 45 minutes a day would be a good goal to shoot for. If you are already in great shape you can aim for higher.

Up tp you.: Depends on your current body status (how overweight you may be). Lots of cardio: it is very difficult to see abs in anyone that is more than ~8% body fat. Cardio will lower your overall body fat percentage. Abdominal exercises to strengthen and bulk up your muscles. Don't forget to hit your upper abs(leg raises) and obliques.

No best: There are no best exercises that will target belly fat the quickest. How you burn your calories will not determine where those calories are mobilized from. The best way to lose belly fat is to follow a low-calorie diet while engaging in exercises that burn the most calories in the shortest amounts of time. These exercises usually involve many different muscle groups, such as the squat or burpee.

Yes, it is difficult: to slim one area of the body down. Overall weight loss is the typical response to lifestyle changes such as a better food plan and exercise. You can learn exercises such as yoga and stretching to tone up muscles in specific areas however. Peace and good health.
