Dear Carmi
The deposit of abdominal fat is common over the age of 40 and may be linked to a variety of factors such as a change in hormone levels, development of the metabolic syndrome, loss of insulin efficiency, lack of exercise, etc. If you are generally overweight then losing weight all round will also reduce your 'tyre'. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more minutes a day. Also do targeted exercises like sit-ups to help slim down your waist.
