There's no real way to lose belly fat quickly. The best thing I believe that you can do, is to do some ab workouts. Also, you can pop into your local gym and see if they have anything that you can do to help yourself lose it.

hey,
I think your best bet is to do ab work to tone up the muscles in your belly. Also watch what you eat, eat more healthy foods, like if you want something crunchy maybe eat celery or carrots instead of chips. stuff like that.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey, Mitchell.

Unfortunately, there is no way to really focus on a specific area to lose fat from. The body just doesn't work that way. You can focus on toning muscles in specific areas, but anyone who tells you it's possible to choose an area to specifically lose weight/fat from is either someone trying to sell you an unhealthy product or someone who has fallen victim to diet marketing.

There's no magic workout, drink/shake, food, diet, supplement, etc. that will make you lose weight/fat in a specific area. Your body will lose weight and fat where it feels it needs to. There's also no healthy way to do it quickly.

I would just continue exercising regularly and eating a balanced diet. It's definitely more important to be healthy than to have a flat stomach. The fat on your stomach is used to protect your vital organs anyway, so you do need some to be there. And while it is good to swap out less healthy options for healthier ones, don't let that stop you from enjoying something considered 'bad' or 'unhealthy' (there's no such thing as 'good' or 'bad' foods and any food in excess is unhealthy). Cutting yourself off from all 'unhealthy' foods in pursuit of abs will only make you crave those foods more which can lead to eating them anyway in a larger amount than what you would have had you just allowed yourself to eat it in the first place. So let yourself have chips/crisps, cake, and any food you like in moderation.

There is one thing about building muscle, though. The more muscle you build by exercising, the more calories your body will burn daily. And usually as someone builds muscle, they lose body fat in the process. Getting to a healthy point with your body takes time. There's no way to make drastic changes happen over night, in a week, or even in a month.

If you are concerned about your health or that there is something wrong with your body storing more fat in your stomach area, then I'd suggest talking to a doctor and/or a dietician. They can help you look at what is wrong (if anything) and what you might be able to improve on.

There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.

wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill

Hey mate,
Sadly you can't focus on one part of the body to lose weight. What I'd say is just do stuff like work out your abs, do some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) to burn fat, and keep an eye on your diet.
Beyond that there really isn't much you can do. There is no magic pill that can do it. There is a belief that cold showers activate "brown fat" and that helps, but I cannot comment on the validity of this claim.
Also, just as an FYI, everyone has a six pack (8 infact), that are covered by fat, skin etc. Working your abs will help burn calories and fat, while building the muscle.
Hope this helps.


PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

It takes time to lose belly fat. You have to workout daily, eat protein and fiber rich foods, avoid sugar and soft drinks. There is no shortcut in achieving flat belly.
