Patience is very important for loosing belly fat. Since more body fat accumulates in this area which sounds to be your problem area, it will be one of the last areas in which you will notice fat reduction. This is simply due to the fact that there is more fat mass accumulated in that area. It is important to recognize this so you don't get frustrated when it seems to take longer than you thought to loose your belly flab.

Loosing Weight is not an easy task. Many people trying to lose weight have been on numerous diets and have tried just about every fad diet that has been around.

Its also important to remember that your weight should be lost gradually. Don't expect miracles overnight like some fad diets promise.

If you're ready to start losing weight, but you don't want to follow a diet, I have good news. You can make a few changes to your everyday diet that will help you eat less, eat smarter, and lose weight!

Don't drink your calories.

Always eat breakfast.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated.

Add at least one more serving of produce to as many meals as possible.

Go for grains.

Always keep healthy frozen meals on hand.

Choose foods that will help you feel satisfied longer

Lose Belly Fat with Proper Diet and Exercise

Without going into a long discussion about nutrition, it is far easier to eat less calories than it is to burn calories with exercise. Consuming too many calories is going the be the number one obstacle in your battle against belly fat. Make sure you take the proper measures to control your caloric intake before you work hard in the gym.

It may seem counterintuitive to you but doing abdominal exercises for extended periods is wasting your time. Not that abdominal exercises are bad but for someone who has to lose body fat, but burning calories with cardiovascular exercise is the most efficient way to slim down your belly.

If your goal is to burn body fat, you want to maximize the time you spend exercising. Again, Pilates class and ab exercises are definitely not bad, but if they are causing to miss out on cardio and not burn enough calories, they should be replaced with cardio sessions.

Full body weight training is excellent for fat loss exercise programs. The likely reason your personal trainer had you doing leg exercises was to help increase your metabolism.

Even though full body weight training can be beneficial to most people who are looking to lose belly fat it can be counter productive like the Pilates and Ab exercises you mentioned if you are not doing enough cardiovascular exercise.

If you have excess body fat, losing belly fat and getting a flat stomach is likely a simple numbers game. At your height and weight, you will likely have to burn more calories than you consume over an extended period of time.

Do the math. In order to burn off a 5 pounds of fat, some which may or may not come from your stomach fat, you will need to burn 17,5000 more calories than you consume. If you consume 500 calories less than you burn, the time frame for 5 pounds of fat loss will take roughly 35 days.

Maintain your current exercise program if you like but don't perform abdominal exercises or anything else at the expense of cardio. If you have endless hours to workout you can do it all but make sure you do not skip your cardio sessions if you want to burn as many calories as possible.

Mr. Boxy
Let's get something perfectly clear:

Your body gradually burns fat all over your body. This includes your belly, thighs, butt, boobs, back, and between organs. You cannot "spot reduce." The only way to remove fat from one area of your body is with surgery. Above all, anything claiming that it targets belly fat is snake oil.

Ever notice how a lot of "belly fat burning" devices and supplements look like this?

It's always product, diet, and exercise. Really, it's diet and exercise that helps you lose fat, with the product they are selling having a negligible influence on total fat loss.

So, to get rid of belly fat you need to diet and exercise. I bet you've never heard that before.

You need to eat at fewer calories than you burn. How many calories do you need? A good rule of thumb is ten calories per pound of body weight: if you weigh 180lbs, you need 1,800 net calories a day to maintain your weight.

However, if you just cut your food intake, your body will adjust and lower your metabolism. You will feel like doing less until you quit losing weight. Exercising will force your body to maintain its metabolism, and in turn burn fat stores. This is where the "net" part comes in: exercise increases the total calories you need per day.

The best fat burning exercise is cardio. Even if you don't have access to a gym, you can always run. If you're stuck in an office, try a compact exercise bike: these let you pedal while you sit at your desk. Some circuit training will also help burn fat: the key is to keep your heart rate up. Ab exercises will increase the size of the abdominal muscles, but aren't large enough by themselves to cause fat burning during exercise.
