    Get better genetics? Idk, in theory if you work out a lot and diet you "should" flatten out but it seems like a whole lot of people out there (me included) are doing just that and not getting anywhere so who knows?

    I feel like crunches help, but like any other exercise, try not to over do them. I think doing more cardio helps. If I feel like my belly is getting a bit too big then I do more cardio. Also, avoiding wheat helps. For some reason Wheat and anything with gluten causes you to store more belly fat.

    Depends. If it's a lot of visceral fat, then it really is just up to burning a whole lot more than you're putting in.
    You are going to have to be on a strict diet and do a lot of regular cardio, then it's just a patience game because you have to wait for it to get rid of most of your other body fat before it starts targetting the visceral fat.

    Doing crunches and other ab exercises is good in the long run, but with visceral fat you won't ever see the muscles because it's hidden under the fat. You literally have to burn it off before you start to see your abs.

    At least that's how it was for me anyway.

    Visceral fat is the fat inside the abdomen, not the layer padding over your mid section muscles.

    And it's that layer of fat over the abs that is so difficult to lose for men, and more and more difficult as you age.

    Corrected how I meant to say it and I think visceral fat and the fat over your abdomen will only be reduced by the same way.
    Entire family (extended) suffers from truncal obesity and so the only way they got rid of it is to slim down signficantly before they started to build the abdomen muscles up.
    Evidence based research? No idea, but that's what they did which worked for them.

    Absolutely wrong. Targeted weight loss doesn't work.

    Cardio will help, but las I checked, due to recovery and repair, lifting burns more calories overall. Can anyone comment on this?

    you should upload a photo of your body or give more info about you (weight, age, etc) so experts here can give you a diet, a gym routine, who knows? icon_razz.gif
    in my opinion you better work out, drink lot of water and avoid junk food icon_razz.gif
    good luck!

    lots of cardio and a strict diet. cut out all the stuff you shouldnt be eating and drinking.

    fast food, breaded and processed foods, sugar unless natural, sweets.

    Learn to snack through the day on healthy stuff, eat breakfast. Great places to start for sure. I don't have a six pack by any means, but I started following these guidelines for myself and I am in LOVE with my midsection for the first time ever.

    I'm not the authority on this shit by any means but something that helped me was ditching coffee.

    Not too sure about the science but I've noticed a difference for sure. I was drinking something stupid like 5 cups a day though. So may be helpful if your a coffee junkie.

    Did you put in cream or sugar?

    If not, that's odd. Caffeine itself is commonly used as a weight loss aid, and the drink itself has very little caloric value.

    I googled it. Apparently its something to do with 'cortisol' but I hate science so it goes way over my head.

    Is highly inconclusive at this point. Nor is there definitive support for any herbal supplements. Just eat real food and keep active.

    You can't spot reduce and you have to get rid of your subcutaneous fat as well. If (like me) you had a bad diet when you were young and apparently didn't get fat, you might have quite a bit of it.

    try to do those stuff:

    - Avoid Chewing Gums
    - Avoid drinking water or juice with meals
    - Drink water before meals by maximum 1 hour or after meals by 1&1/2 to 2 hours
    - do not eat before bed by at least 3 hours
    - 2 slice of Pineapple + 7 small spoons of skimmed yougart act as natural fat burner
    - start ur morning with 1/2 lemon Juice + 2 slices of fresh Ginger + hot water
    this drink known to dissolve yellow fats

    good luck
