Belly Fat... Is it really that difficult to get rid of?

Hello everyone!

It's always the hardest thing to get rid of (seemingly)- Belly fat.  People do countless numbers of crunches and ab exercises, and all those things and don't see results.

I read a blog that basically says that all you really need to do to get a flat belly is watch your carbs.  Starch and sugar = belly fat.  Protein and vegetables = flat belly.

The blog even says that the only way to get a flat belly is the one thing nobody wants to hear- exercise alone is not enough.

The following is from the blog-

"Finally, and this is the most important thing and the thing no one ever wants to listen to, you can’t do this with exercise alone. You could be doing all of the exercise stuff just right and not lose weight or belly fat and perhaps even gain it because DIET IS THE MOST CRUCIAL ELEMENT IN BODY CHANGE AND FAT LOSS.
Too often people simply say “i am eating right” and they don’t realize this simple fact: if you are not getting results then you are not eating right.  If you are not getting results in fat loss, then no matter how good you are eating, it is not good enough for you and you are going to have to take it to the next level. This is just the way it is. Your metabolic formula is different from everyone else and you need to stop being the dieter and start being the fat loss detective. We all need to look at ourselves and realize while we may be comfortable with our current diet practices and be convinced it is enough, it simply may not be.  The point of your nutrition practices where you start seeing losses in belly fat is the point where you start seeing results NOT the place you are comfortable with.
Too often people get to a point where either consciously or unconsciously they decide  “this way of eating is good enough and I am comfortable here”. Sorry, but your level of comfort has nothing to do with it.  If you want change you have to make change and that change may be much more drastic then you have ever considered. It’s not fair, but it is the way it is.
Too often people are spinning their wheels trying to change up their exercise program in an attempt to get rid of the belly fat when in reality it is the diet program that needs to be manipulated, changed, and experimented with the most. This is the real way a six pack is built.  Abs are indeed made in the kitchen."
