Why is the stomach the hardest place to lose fat?

I have a nice/decent shape, except for this little pudge in my tummy area. It is sooo out of place, and it will not go away no matter what. Why does the fat go directly there? Why is it so hard to lose? Any tips?

    Fat goes there because that is the first place where humans store fat.

    If you want to lose flab/cellulite/fat from your abs/thighs/butt or get a six pack you need to first realize that spot reduction is a myth.
    The problem is not the muscle; the problem is the fat that is covering the muscle.
    Anyone that says “Oh do crunches to get rid of the fat or your belly” or “high reps of lunges make your legs smaller” is a loony.
    You can do 1,000 lunges, crunches, sit ups a day but that fat isn’t going anywhere. All they do is work the muscle. They do nothing for the fat.
    You can’t lose fat in one specific place; fat is lost throughout the body, dependant on genes, gender, and age. That’s just the way we humans work.

    To lose fat:
    2. DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF! Unless you are 4ft tall, a 1,200 calorie a day diet is DANGEROUS and won’t work in the long run.
    3. Calculate your BMR. Do a google search. A good calculator would ask for your age, height, weight, and activity level.
    4. Eat healthy and eat about 500 calories a day less than your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR is how many calories you need per day to maintain your current weight.
    5. Eat 5-6 small meals a day. This keeps your metabolism up. Each meal should include fruits, veggies, water, and protein.
    5. Drink at least 64oz (8 8oz glasses) of water a day. No soda (that includes diet soda).
    6. Do light/moderate cardio 3 to 5 times a week for 30 to 45 minutes each time. Running, bicycling, and swimming are great for this.
    7. Do some strength training to make sure you lose fat and not muscle. Don’t worry; you won’t look like the hulk if you lift weights.
    8. You should lose about 1-2lbs (.45-.9kg) per week. If you lose more than that, chances are the rest is stool, water weight, or even muscle mass.
    9. Weigh yourself only once a week at the same time (ie every Friday morning). Your weight fluctuates a lot during any 24hour period because of water and food intake and also bowel movements.
    Be patient and be smart. If you follow this guideline you will be very happy with your results.

    Not necessarily your stomach, but more your colon because fat builds up and excess feces will build up.
