You can but will tak: It takes time to put on extra weight and it takes equally long time to lose weight. So be patient...It did not all happen in one day! first step is to learn about how body handles food and about energy balance in our body. The secret is to eat less and burn more calories(exercise), creating a negative energy balance. Avoid calorie dense foods(fats and sweets), eat plant based foods(veggies/fruits).

A general aerobic: Unfortunately it is not possible to create regional fat loss by any method. Best bet is nutritional diet with aerobic exercise.

Belly & Thigh Fat: If you have achieved a healthy weight through proper diet and exercise and you still have some excess belly and thigh fat then you could be a candidate for liposuction. The skin tone must be good for liposuction to give the best result. Stretch marks and loose skin with excess fat means you need a tummy tuck and thigh lift. See a plastic surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery.

Belly & Thigh Fat: To achieve weight loss you must burn more calories than you eat. There are many diet and exercise programs out there that can help you lose weight quickly but many do not help you keep weight off over the long term. Cycles of weight loss and weight gain are not healthy. Find a program you can stick with to lose pounds and maintain a healthy weight for life.
