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!!

It's not calories that determines weight as much as metabolism and digestion of the food you eat -- calories are just one factor, which is why reducing calories for many people doesn't do much for weight.  Belly fat tends to be the result of eating too many simple carbs, at least for most people.  That's why it's called a beer belly when it gets large, because beer is very high in simple carbs.

You need to clean out your body. Drink lots of water. Don't use those juice cleanse things no!!  Water is the best way to flush out toxins out of your body. When you drink water it flushes out what is not needed. And may help you with your constipation.
