Diet and exercise: Truly count calories, everything you put in your mouth, and cut that back to healthy normal amounts. Some advocate cutting out white bread and limiting carbs, and remember that alcohol has calories. Healthy amounts of exercise. You cannot otherwise target belly fat (without surgery).

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.Engage in regular aerobic.
