In brief: Dear Hanging,

Getting rid of "hanging belly" is not easy.
If it was caused by loss of weight---congratulations! you have excess skin that didn't tighten up after the weight loss--but exercises and perhaps surgery might be needed. If the "belly" is not from weight loss---it's time to cut back on food and start by walking. The belly will decrease with weight loss and abdominal exercise. Luck to you.

In brief: Aerobic Training

Based on the latest scientific evidence, getting rid of belly fat seems to be best accomplished through aerobic training http://www.
