Your abdominal area is one of the most tricky and probably the hardest part of your body to tone and lose weight from. One of the biggest problems is the fact that you gradually sink into it and usually by the time you realize you have too much stomach fat, its already too late. Stomach fat is mostly excess fat that your body stores in the abdominal zone and as it starts accumulating it gets harder to lose. It also gets easier to store for your body.

While there are thousands of diets out there that promise to "melt away fat" without any effort on your part, the reality is that losing stubborn fat is tough. There is no 1 thing that you can do, but by combining several things it becomes much easier. In the beginning its quite tough but as you start losing belly fat it becomes much easier. The more you lose, the more you can lose - and the faster you will lose it.

Here are 3 easy tips that can help you and combining all 3 will help you lose the weight and get into great shape.

1. Cardiovascular Exercise
In my opinion all weight loss needs to start with exercise. Cardiovascular exercise is what you can call weight loss exercise. Its basically any type of exercise that raises your heart rate by at least 50% for at least 30 minutes. Doing this 5 times a week is guaranteed to start burning off that stubborn fat that sits around your waist and your stomach.

2. Eat 5 Healthy Portions a Day
One of the biggest mistakes that most diets make is that it forces you to give up all those foods you've grown to love. Its much easier to introduce good food into your diet than it is to give up those bad foods you love. Start by eating at least 5 portions of fruit or vegetables a day. Not only will this leave less "room" for the bad stuff but fresh fruit and vegetables will help you lose weight in itself.

3. Cut The Baddies
Eliminating all the "bad foods" from your life is not really all that practical. There are however certain things you have to let go if you want to eliminate the fat that builds around your waste and abdominal area. The 2 biggest culprits are foods that are high in saturated fat and foods that are high in sugar and preservatives. Start looking at food labels and focus on these 2 baddies.
