- sell your soul to the devil.
serious answer now
- you can't spot reduce and belly fat is usually the last to come off of guys
- eat in a deficit, lift weights
- you'll lose weight and hopefully retain/lose only some muscle.

"There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."

I had a wife once but she ran away with a gypsy. My heart was not ripped out but she did steal my cuckoo clock.

Yeah... at 6'0 and 255 you need to drop at least 45 pounds if not 55. To put on that much lean mass would take a very long time.http://infinutrition.com - Complete fitness and personal training platform. Visit us or contact me for more information.

Belly fat is not the 'last' to come off. Your body doesn't have a check list of fat spots to go through. It's just that the belly for most males, stores the most fat, so it appears that it's the 'last' place to lose fat.
The fact of the matter is that your belly loses fat at the same rate as any other area on your body. But when you get to the point where every other spot is now fat-less, your belly remains bloated - that's because it had the most fat to lose from the get-go, and thus, still has some fat to lose left on it.
The best proof to that is to look at progress pics of obese males. You'll see that the belly shrinks just as fast, if not faster than other areas on their bodies. But when the rest of the body has shed most if not all the fat, the belly still has some left on it. It's not the 'last' fat to melt, it's just the most to be shed overall, and thus, takes longer - that's all.
As for the OP's question:
1. Low carb diet - your carb intake should be less than 20% of your total daily calorie intake. Stick to fibrous carbs, such as veggies, and complex carbs - whole grain oats. But minimize the later, while stacking up on the former.
2. LISS or HIIT - I prefer LISS - do it for 30-45 minutes daily, PREFERABLY first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Leave the weight training for later in the day. Try to shove at least 5 x 45minutes cardio sessions a week. But don't go over 45 minutes per session.
3. Drink PLENTY of water - around a gallon a day
4. Carb intake should only be limited to post workout - and keep it to a minimum.
Stick to the plan above, and you'll be there in no-time.

A diet isn't punishment. A diet is a way to reward your body with the wholesome, nutritious food that it needs. Your body composition is a direct reflection of what you put in your mouth.
