Exercise and diet: Lots of water won't make you lose belly fat. Sometimes exercise alone won't either. The best thing to do is regular exercise and following a healthy diet (both quality and quantity).

A 24-year-old member asked:
Does drinking a lot of soda cause belly fat?

Yes: Each 12oz can of soda has 180 calories. Even diet soda causes belly fat. The artificial sweetners trigger Insulin release. This leads to fat storage.
