Our expert says:
When you weighed 65 kg 2 years ago your BMI = 18,8 which was underweight. Now your top weight of 87.2 kg gives you a BMI of 25,2 which is slightly above the upper level of normal. Because you are so active (doing cardio exercise 4-5 times a week), this BMI is probably not excessive, but it may help to lose 3-4 kg which would also reduce your abdominal fat. Try using a 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). The problem with abdominal fat is that it is particularly resistant and difficult to shift. Ask your gym instructor to add some exercises that target the stomach (sit-ups, etc) to your regimen. This should help you to lose the flab, but this is a long-term process. If you can lose those 4 kg and do targeted exercises for the next 6 weeks (take your measurements every week) and there is still no reduction, then it may be an idea to consult a plastic surgeon for the option of liposuction to remove the abdominal fat.
