Brief Answer: Diet + Exercise with or without metformin... Detailed Answer: Hi, Exercise is the most suited healthy option to reduce abdominal fat. Cardioexercise and exercise to tone abdominal muscles will gradually be able to remove those excess fat. But before you embark on this process, please note that though this is very effective method, most people find results after 3-4 months of religious exercise. So patience and good compliance are the key for successful results. You should supplement exercise with a low calorie food. You may want to prepare a personalised diet plan based on your eating preference with the help of a dietician. Beside diet and exercise, if your body weight is above normal BMI standard, you may consider taking metformin tablets. Metformin in the dose of 500mg twice a day has helped many of my patients loose weight. You can get this prescribed by a doctor nearby if needed. Off course, your doctor would order some blood test before prescribing it to you. Lastly, if you are looking for quick and easy way out and you are ready shell out extra bucks for it, you can choose liposuction. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
