    It's impossible to lose fat in just one area of the body other that by surgery. You'll want to lose fat in general. Eat less and exercise more.

    I played baseball in college and our strength & conditioning coach had a very rigourous 5 minute ab routine that we followed three days a week. The exercises are as follows:

    Stationary Crunches (we did them with our hands between our knees pushing out away from our chest) - 30 seconds

    Standard Countermovement Crunches (elbows behind the head, feet on the floor; bring the elbows to knees above the chest) - 30 seconds

    Roman Soldiers (in a seated position, lift the feet up of the ground about 6 inches and lean back balancing on the butt; while balancing, rotate the body side-to-side attempting to touch the ground with the hands on each side of the body) - 30 seconds

    Bicycle crunches - 30 seconds

    Scissor kicks Up/Down (laying flat, feet 6 inches off the ground) - 30 seconds

    Scissor kicks Side-to-Side (laying flat, feet 6 inches off the ground) - 30 seconds

    Dead Leg Holds (laying flat) - 30 seconds

    Push-Downs Up/Down - 30 seconds

    Push-Downs Side-to-Side - 30 seconds

    Sit-ups - 30 seconds

    If needed, you can add a 10 second rest period between each exercise.

    Good luck!!!!

    well exercise is probably the best way to get ride of it. Do crunches but dont kill yourself doing alot all at one time start off with a few at first to stregthen your abs then add more so you dont hurt yourself it will take time and dedication but in the end you will have a sexy flat stomach and of course pills really arent the answer stay away from foods with lots of fat thats how you get that fat lol good luck to you

    You need to do cardiovascular exercises to get rid of fat. Many people will do tons of sit-ups, thinking it'll get rid of the fat, but they'll just have even stronger, rock hard abs under the same layer of fat. Fat is mostly removed by doing cardio.

    Well I think you should drink a lots of water and grape fruit juice and that burns the fat down. and also do a 20mn work out three days out of the week.

    Maybe sit ups or crunches. Everyone says pill do not work, but I haven't tried them myself. Good luck!
