    I am getting married in about 4 months. I have been a fit guy with no fat all my life. I have just started to build up a bit of belly fat. It's nothing major as yet but I think I need to work on it as I am getting married in the next few months. I hate dieting and exercises. I can do some exercises if needed but dieting is impossible for me. Can you suggest some ways to get rid of this belly fat which is just starting to build up.

    Edit: The Title should have been " Iam getting married and want to lose my belly fat."  Sorry for the typo.

      You're lucky this is not out of hand.  Sorry, you will need to change your eating pattern.  Stop all beer and alchohol, eat small amounts of protein with every meal.  Someone who is 5'4" weighing 130 should bet 56 gram of protein a day.  Don't overdo it.  Protein will be pissed out if you eat more than the body can use at one time.  Break it up during the day.

      Make sure you eat rather than starve.  The body can only eliminate fat if it does not think it is starving.  Other than actually getting some exercise, eat plenty of fiber which carries fat and toxins from the body.

    Hi sid_candid. Try reading `The Diet Solution' by Isabel De Los Rios. It's not a diet, it is just a matter of changing your way of eating. I lost 8kg's by following this method & all I did was cut down on the amount that I ate and walked 5km's which took me 45 minutes every day. I didnt stop drinking wine either.It's a lifestyle change, and it is fun to follow as well. It also becomes a habit, so in the end you dont even have to think about it.
    You can find her on line,and her way of thinking comes highly recommended.
    Good luck for your wedding day

    Why bother?  You are not committed to maintaining it.  Just keep doing what you are doing.

    People are so obsessed with the way they look, which doesn't matter. She already said yes obviously.

    So focus on health and forget the vanity.

      You don't necessarily need to diet per se, but cut back on negative eating behaviors, such as simple sugars and starches. Try doing cardio exercises to burn the most calories.

    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I would suggest doing targeted exercises specific to your belly area. The HipHop Abs workout is an example of one that is a lot of fun.

    I can suggest you a great thing which will help you. You don't need to do dieting. Drink 2-3 cup of Aiya matcha green tea daily and you will see the difference. For more information google Aiya america.

    I'm working on the same area, though my timeframe is shorter (1 1/2 months) and its a vacation for our 15 year anniversary. 
    I have been using fresh juiced vegetables and fruits to make it through my day.  Then at night I eat a normal meal.  I've been amazed at how good I feel, both mentally and physically!  I had been a juicer for a while, but never used it as a "diet"  Now that I have, I can really see it working.  I've lost 4 pounds in less than a week, and I don't normally fluctuate much.  Also, I've noticed my "love handles" slimming down.  Now, I'm not overweight at all, but I want my belly to go down a bit.  I've had 3 kids and never really recovered from the last one. 
    I don't like exercising, but realize I may have to do a little something.
    The great thing about drinking fresh juice (mainly vegetables) is that it's low in calories, but filling.  When I get hungry, I pull out the juicer and make another one.
    Just a suggestion.  It does seem to work though because you're not starving your body.  On the contrary, you can give it all the vital nutrition it needs to work the right way.

    wanting to lose that belly fat and look good for your wedding day is a great idea. Why start out already over weight and out of shape? You need to cut out all the bad stuff for a while and maintain a low caloric intake. So carbs like breads, drinking, soda and lots of fried foods need to be reduced a lot. You can do a weight watchers diet that actually gives you some of these foods and enough to fill you up. I gave up sandwiches to keep my weight down. I don't drink soda and keep fried foods intake at a limit. I love deserts but had to use small portions to satisfy my sweet tooth.
    I got into salads with grilled chicken , steak, shrimp, and even a few fried chicken fingers. Measure the dressing to a few tablespoons and you'll find it's enough to do the job. In a week or two you will find that the new way of eating will appeal. Some of the old foods will actually make you  feel sick and overstuffed. You can still eat real meals but not large portions and limited carbs.
    exercising can be  brisk walks and some other form of aerobics along with a little weight training. remember that muscle burns fat even when not weight training. Your bride to be will be really proud of you. Go for it!!!

    If you want to reduce belly fat,i would suggest you to  focus on achieving a good fitness level. People generally believe that doing abs daily would give good result but that is called as spot reduction, and it is totally a misconception that doing abs or only doing abs workout would reduce the belly fat, so  get clear that spot reduction do not work. I would suggest you to hit a gym, have counseling with a gym instructor to know what exercise would help you and also see a dietitian. Exercise and good diet work best together to stay healthy. This will definitely give you good results.

    I'm sorry you hate dieting and exercise because unfortunately, that is the only real way to lose your fat.  You don't have to diet per say, but you will have to change your diet, make better choices, and eat more lean proteins.  If you really hate exercise, just walk more.  When we lose fat, we lose it from all over our bodies, not just from one specific area.  So, if you are serious about wanting to look better for your wedding, I'd say make yourself some hard boild eggs and start walking.  That "belly" fat isn't just going to go away by itself.

    A friend of mine has been complaining about belly fat and is confident that thermal treatment will work for her.

    I don't know the exact name but, its something they put on your body that is warm and it burns off the fat. It might take 2 to 3 sessions.

    Expensive....  Good Luck.

    Hi there,
    If you want to lose some body fat here are some suggestion:

    - Cut out all sugars and simple carbohydrates from your meals
    - Eat 5-6 times a day. Small portions more regularly will improve metabolism
    - Drink lots of water a day (6-8 glasses) to remove water retention from the equation.
    - Get at least 8 hours of rest a day.

    I hope these tips will help you.
