Diet and exercise: Diet and exercise are the best non-surgical ways to lose cellulite and stomach fat. Miracle pills and fad diets rarely work. If that is unsuccessful visit plasticsurgery.Org and use the find a surgeon tab to find a board certified plastic surgeon near you.

Diet and exercise: Are the only real natural ways of losing fat and diminishing cellulite. If that isn't an option, there are many technologies out there that can work (and there are many that do not work) so do your homework and know what the policy is if you cannot appreciate any improvements. And by the way, this requires that you can at least maintain your weight.

Hard question: Honestly, we don't have great treatments for either cellulite. Certain new laser treatments can help stretch marks and cellulite (different lasers). But most of the products & creams you see offered for sale are pretty much worthless. As for the stomach fat, if diet and exercise don't work, there's always liposuction or coolsculpting.

Through total body: Weight loss. You can't specifically get rid of abdominal fat by spot reducing. If you lose weight a portion of that weight loss will reduce abdominal fat. Additionally, core toning exercises will help you stand more erect & improve your appearance. To lose weight keep up your physical activity and insure that calories burned exceed calories consumed. Weight training can help build muscle which.

No selective loss: You cannot preferentially lose fat from one specific area of the body (naturally). However, overall weight loss will contribute to loss over different body areas. Exercise can be used to firm, tone and sculpt.
