How To Lose Belly Fat

Question: I can't understand why I can't lose my pot belly. I have been doing sit-ups and crunches like crazy but it just doesn't seem to work. What am I doing wrong?

Answer: Attempting to lose weight in any particular area is called 'spot reducing', and unfortunately, it can't be done. Your problem area is your waistline and there is no possible way to get tight, defined abdominal muscles just by doing a million sit-ups when those abdominal muscles are covered with a layer of fat. You will develop the abdominal muscles all right, but you will never be able to see them until you shed some body fat. This means following a sensible diet and doing aerobic exercise as well as strength training.
The same principle applies to every part of your body. If the backs of your arms are flabby you can tone the muscles underneath, but you have also got to lose the fat on top. And fat loss never happens in one place. It happens simultaneously all over the body.
Now that you have the formula your goal is attainable. Think about it. You were motivated enough to do all those sit-ups. Now all you have to do is channel that energy into your revised fitness plan and watch that belly disappear.
