Your problem is very common, and if you look back on the forum, you’ll see many, many similar questions. The solution is also very common, though not easy to achieve. You see the misconception is that you make this fat disappear by doing situps, crunches etc. This is not the case. The problem is elevated body fat. Therefore, while doing specific exercises helps in achieving some definition, your focus should be on cardio training. That means running, cycling, walking, aerobics, swimming etc. You need to be doing this regularly, 4 to 5 times a week, for about 45 minutes a day, and also at quite a high intensity. That’s why it is difficult, because it requires time and effort and unfortunately, what you are often told in the media that 10 minutes a day sitting in your arm chair can work too is not true. I would suggest that you check out the fitness page of the Health24 site and then go to programmes, where you will see a number of options that you can choose from
