Stomach Fat: Fat in your waist is easy to get rid of if you follow 3 steps. First, cut out or get rid of carbs. No breads or tropical fruit. Second , eat 5 meals a day. Isopure protein supplement is a good meal supplement. Third, you need to do aerobic exercise: running, elliptical machine, biking , stairstep. Something to get your heart rate up. Optimal maximum heart rate: 225 - your age.

Other options: Agree that diet and exercise are always preferred. But if you find that you have pockets of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise, then you might want to consider liposuction or the newer safer noninvasive fat melting procedures such as liposonix (the first fda approved device to melt fat without liposuction or surgery).

There: There is always an old fashioned way of working out and toning the body. But there are new lasers and devices which remove localized fat. These are coolsculpting, liposonix, zerona and bella contour. While all 4 are effective for a specific bulge of fat liposonix and cool sculpting are most effective. Coolsculpting is a minimal to no pain, no downtime procedure. With liposonix there is minimal to moderate pain involved. You need to consult an experienced laser surgeon to see which procedure is good for you.
