You need to DIET AND EXERCISE! Just exercising won't do it!.
To lose belly fat you need to be choosing healthy low-calorie foods and regular cardiovascular exercise.
Warm up for five minutes on a stationary bike or a treadmill. Exercise at a moderate pace to get your heart rate up and get blood flowing in your muscles. Warming up before exercising decreases your risk of injury.
Try the following!
The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90 second cool down in between each outburst.
This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at which you can lose fat and build muscle.
I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20 Minutes.
What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body. The links are
Figure your heart rate by this formula
The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts. First thing in the morning before you get out of bed have a clock with a second hand and check your resting heart rate then figure your rate by the Karvonen Formula
The following link will help you figure your heart rate by the Karvonen Formula.
You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own.

Eating fewer calories than you use makes your body use the fat storage in your belly to provide energy.
To lose belly fat, aim for at least a calorie reduction of a 1,000 calories daily.  Avoid foods high in sugar, calories and saturated fat by. A diet of lean protein, nuts, seeds and complex carbs such as vegetables and fruits. Remember nuts have a lot of calories.
Before doing anything get the OK from your doctor!!

daily sit ups will help.

I hope you mean daily crunches and other ab exercises -- sit ups add up to back pain eventually.  As for the long description above, it might help you and might not.  Any exercise is good exercise if you're not exercising now, but the important thing about exercise is to do what you like.  Interval training is leaving a lot of injured people behind because it requires a lot of stopping and starting, which is stressful.  If you're a highly experienced athlete it can be good for training, but for others it leads to muscle cramps and pulls.  It just depends on the person and how young the person is.  But diet is very important -- belly fat usually comes from eating too many simple carbs -- white flour, sugar, and the like -- which is why when it gets really big it's called a beer belly.  Eating less of these foods can help.  If you belong to a gym, a personal trainer might be able to teach you an ab regimen that will focus on your trouble spot, and also mix in some cardio.  Good luck.

When you warm up before exercising that helps prevent injuries. You don't need to stretch the muscles before exercising just use lighter weights to warm the muscles. As for simple crabs that's why the Atkins or the Palo diet is good. You don't eat simple crabs! Only complex crabs.

Gym, why do you only eat stupid crabs?  Easier to catch?  And you do know you don't have to follow anybody's set diet to eat fewer simple carbs, especially the ones you recommend, one, Atkins, that hasn't prove out in research to product sustained weight or health and the other that is over a dozen different diets and based on faulty history.  All you have to do is eat fewer simple carbs to eat fewer simple carbs.  But simple crabs, well, how do you tell when a crab is simple?  Ask them riddles?
Because I love crabs!
I just noticed it now!

Any diet that has  been proved successful will only work so long as you don't go back to your original eating habits. That goes for the millions of diets proven or not. So don't knock the ones that people have found to work for them.

Thanks that helps a lot

How do you know it worked for them long-term?  That's the acid test.  And you can't stay on Atkins -- not enough veggies.  Not enough antioxidants.  Eventually you have to go off that one.  My point is, though, not that anyone shouldn't try these diets you mention, just that so far no fad diet has proven itself over time.  The tried and true still has the best outcomes when people are followed over time.  So it's fine if people want to try the commercial diets you champion, but it's also fine if they don't and just eat responsibly.  But I still want some of those simple crabs -- the ones I've eaten are so complex to eat.

Eating healthy and doing cardio and weight machines at the gym helps me! I do all the ab strength machines and I already notice the difference in my stomach. So just stick with a workout plan for yourself and eat healthy. Then you'll be good to go! I know some people take dietary supplements to help get that adrenaline to work out which also helps to lose weight too so that might be an additional option.

Running,swimming/walking or riding a bike are all good cardio exercises which you can use for belly fat.

I'd be careful about those "dietary" supplements.  They don't increase adrenaline so much as they're high in substances such as caffeine that give artificial energy (followed by an artificial crash).  There are some supplements that can help with building muscle, but none that are necessary for anyone to take, and most contain unhealthy ingredients.
