When you gain weight, naturally fat accumulates all over the body, not only in a certain area. When you lose weight, fat is burned off as well. Nevertheless, stubborn belly fat is always the last to go and could take extra effort to remove it. You can remove stubborn belly fat by doing exercises, healthy eating and cardiovascular workouts.
The first thing you should consider is to pay close attention to foods you eat. Those that are high in fat, particularly saturated fat could prevent your efforts to get rid of fat. Consider eating a lot of fruit and vegetables instead. Do exercises that are targeted for abdominal muscles. Some exercises include lying leg scissor kicks; lying leg lifts and reverses crunches. Engage the upper abdominal muscles by doing exercises such as sit-ups and standard crunches and bicycle crunches.
You can also do some cardiovascular activity, like bicycling, swimming, running, fast-paced walking or jumping rope. Some belly fat could be removed via strength training, but will burn off much faster if the heart rate is up. Whatever exercises you decide to do, keep in mind that you have to discipline yourself as well and refrain from eating fatty foods as much as possible.
