How do I get rid of accumulated fat around my abdomen and hips?

I am a 23 years old. I’ve always been really thin, and I exercise regularly and eat healthy. Recently any fat on my body has accumulated into an ‘innertube’ of fat/skin around my abdomen and hips. I run/walk or swim everyday, I have rockhard abs underneath this fat, but the love handles and pooch will not go away!! Should I do a liquid diet for a while or something? I have absolutely no fat anywhere else on my body…I really don’t understand whats going on.

    Hey girl,
    Just a note before I start: crunches, push ups, situps, etc will not help you loose weight! THEY WILL MAKE YOU GAIN MUSCLE ON TOP OF DA FAT!!!!

    What you really need to do if you want to loose
    weight, is make sure you do these VERY important
    things:

    1. Have no more than 1,000 calories a day! Look on
    every nutrition label of what you eat, and always buy
    low calorie foods!

    2. Exercise! But not for muscles! People get loosing
    weight and gaining juscle confused. The gym is good
    for tonning up muscles, but to loose weight, you
    really have to run, jump, swim, and anything else that
    really makes you sweat, sweat, sweat!!!! Exercise for
    AT Least 1-3 hours a day!

    3. EAT HEALTHY! Some people skip breakfast and lunch
    and then have a huge dinner right before bed. That is
    absolutely the worst thing you can do for your immune
    system! You will gain weight and will NEVER be able to
    loose it because your immune system will be screwd up!
    Make sure you have a large breakfast with no (or
    little) breads. Like one egg, 2 turkey sausages, and
    one waffle. Cereal and milk is good, but with 1% milk
    and no sugery cereal like lucky charms, fruit loops,
    etc.
    Have a medium sized lunch, no hamburgers, fries, or
    soda. A salad or tofu, or chicken strips (not fried)
    or anything else yummy and helathy you can think of.
    But still watch the calories.
    Always remember to have dinner BEFORE 6 PM! A light
    soup with toast, or low calorie mac and cheese and a
    salad is good. Maybe a veggie low calorie lasgna.
    Also, dont EVER eat meat after 7 pm! Especially pork
    and beef. Chicken is ok, but eat it no less that 3
    hours before bed.
    No snacking on chips, chocolate, or any calorie
    filled, starurated fat drenched, snacks during the
    day! If your craving for a snack, dried fruit or
    regular fruit or special K bars are good. BUT NO
    ENERGY BARS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE TONS OF SUGAR!!!!

    4. Go to bed early! Did you know that the more you
    sleep, the more fat you burn? Thats why you are always
    lighter in the morning, by a pound or so.

    5. HAVE WILLPOWER!!!! You have to know when to tell
    yourself to stop! Sometimes you need it to tell you to
    go exercise, sometimes not to eat donuts and cake at a
    birthday party.

    I really hope you reach your goal!!!!!

    Good Luck!!!!!

    When we want to get rid of body fat, there is no way to specifically burn fat from one part of the body. Doing situps won’t burn the fat that is covering your abs and doing tricep extensions won’t get rid of the fat that is covering your triceps. The only thing you can do is lose weight all around and eventually the problem area will also improve. The way to burn fat is through a calorie restricted diet in conjunction with an exercise routine that will burn calories. Activities that burn calories include running, biking, swimming and other high intensity activities.

    I agree with straighthealth17, you’ll have to do an overall toning, more cardio. also, I would suggest watching fat intake as well as calorie intake. and be careful, just because it says “no fat” doesn’t mean it’s healthy, sugar has no fat but will still make you gain weight, so check carbs as well, something that has 0 fat and 40 grams of carbs isn’t too healthy for you.

    do not go on liquid diet or any other fad diet – it will make it worse, you will end up having higher body fat percentage and slower metabolism.
    cardio is the only fat burning exercise – do it 4-6 times a week for 30-50min (ideally 45min because the first 20-30min body burns carbs and only then starts burning fat), you can also try doing HIIT (high intensity iterval training ) – it has proven to burn more fat and get faster results.
