The abdominal area tends to store more fat than other body parts.
With hard work and dedication, belly fat can be beat for good. Unfortunately, there is no way to spot reduce stomach fat. Losing weight and toning your body takes aerobic and anaerobic workouts, as well as a healthy diet. While a good diet plays a major role in controlling the number of calories you consume, regular exercise will help burn extra calories for a slimmer, tighter body.

Kettlebell Figure 8
Stand with your feet double shoulder-width apart and squat down with a kettlebell in your left hand. Swing the bell around your left hip and under your left leg, passing it to your right hand.

Never push through an exercise if you feel any pain. Stop and give your body one to two days off to heal. To beat your belly fat, you need to include aerobic exercises into your workout routine. Do cardio three to four times a week on nonconsecutive days for 30 minutes per day. Eating healthy will also help slim down your stomach fat. A healthy diet consists of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, monounsaturated fats -- found in plant oils, avocados, nuts and seeds, polyunsaturated fats -- found in fatty fish, protein and calcium.
