Many people find that they are genetically pre-disposed to building up fat around their bellies. The belly is the first place that fat is deposited, and the last place that it is lost from. The good news is that it is still possible to get a flat stomach, if you understand why the body behaves the way that it does and you work to combat that with a healthy diet and exercise.
The first thing that you should know is that it is not possible to spot reduce. If you have belly fat, then doing crunches, sit ups and v-sits won’t get rid of it any faster than doing exercises that do not specifically target the stomach. To lose fat, you must consume fewer calories than you burn on a day-to-day basis. This is best done through a combination of eating a healthy diet and engaging in exercise.

The best exercises to get rid of belly fat are resistance exercises and high-intensity interval training based aerobic exercises. Weight training builds muscle, which boosts your metabolism in the long term. Interval training – such as tabatta based exercises, helps to get your heart rate up and burns a lot of calories too. Low intensity, steady state aerobics such as going on a rowing machine or a treadmill are not really efficient uses of your time; they are boring, and the number of calories they burn per minute is not particularly high.
Try sprints, burpees, lifting weights, or doing kettlebell exercises to get the lean and toned look that you are searching for, and cut down on the amount of snacks that you eat on a day-to-day basis. Your abs will start to show once you get down to about 12 percent body fat.
