So all my weight goes straight to my belly... I put on about a stone from Christmas and New Years and it’s never really shifted. Then with Easter just gone I have been dreading the scales - my clothes are way too tight so new it would be bad. Yup piled on another stone and a half.... I knew it was bad when I I couldn’t see the number on the scale because my gut was in the way!

With summer holidays around the corner and my belly fat just growing.... anyone know what to do?

Hi there OP,

We hope you don't mind, we've moved your thread over to weight loss chat now.

Hi @Firstmum03, there are lots of different types of dieting or healthy eating you can try. But, it's a case of eat less (in calorific value) and move more.

I've reduced my calorie intake to 1200 which I'm not finding particularly difficult (bar 2 days at the beginning). I've lost 11lb in 4 weeks with another 35lb to go (would give me a BMI of around 22). I use MFP to record my consumption and track weight loss.

Listen to the advice on here and check-in regularly as it keeps you motivated. Choose what's right for you and good luck. smile

eat less, move more. Choose what suits your lifestyle

For me moving more is easier to do than eating less grin

Intermittent fasting is a great way to reduce belly fat, check out Michael Mosley's books eg Fast 800, New 5:2.

Low carb bootcamp may be for you? Have a look at the threads. I put on weight on my stomach, face and torso. No where else. This way of eating eliminates all the bloating foods (starchy carbs, booze)
