hey guys, i have been working out and lifting for a a while now. and my body seems to be defined excepted for my stomach area. i can't seem to loose the rest of the fat around my stomach. i understand many people lose the fat on the stomach last when cutting. I am currently 5'7 and 157 lbs. i was wondering what kind of diet/workout should i be doing in order to get rid of this stubborn stomach fat that won't go away no matter how much i work out and lift.

when burning fat you cant just target one specific area you will have to lose it all over.. i cant give you a diet but i can tell you find out your body fat percentage and your calorie maintenance and stay up your maintenance by a few hundred a day .. alot of people go 500 calories under ... also stay away from saturated and trans fats

The whole ‘your stomach fat is the last to go’ argument is one big BS. Your body doesn’t have a checklist of fat spots to go through in sequence. Naturally, for most men out there, the majority of their fat concentration is around their midsection (for women it’s the thighs), hence, this is where you have the most amount of fat to lose. You stomach fat doesn’t go ‘last’, it goes in tandem with the rest of your body fat, but because that area has the largest amount of fat to begin with, it will be the last spot still carrying fat around it, long after your other body areas have shed theirs.
In short, you don’t lose fat in chronological order, it just takes you less time to lose fat where you had less/smaller fat concentration, and it takes you longer to lose where you have the most fat to lose. If you have 2lbs of fat to lose around your chest area, and 25lbs of fat to lose around your midsection, which spot will clear its fat faster?
Be patient, continue on a calorie-deficit diet, and exercise. It’s not rocket science, and there is no magic formula to getting rid to stomach fat. Whatever works on your other body parts (proper diet and exercising), works on your midsection as well, it’s no different – just takes longer because you have most fat to lose from that particular area.
Be patient, small steps, one milestone at a time, and you’ll get there eventually with hard work and dedication.

Say there's a deep puddle and a shallow puddle. The deep one at the Equator where the Sun is hot and the shallow one at the Arctic where it's not so hot. The deep puddle is going to evaporate first. The shallow one is still evaporating. There may be less of it, but it's still the last to go.
What I think you mean is that pound for pound, it doesn't disappear faster or quicker than anywhere else on the body.
