    Unfortunately you just have to keep dieting down until it's gone. Low back/stomach/love handle fat are the last place most people lose fat from. Also no exercise will get rid of that fat, there is no such thing as spot reducing.

    You're already pretty light. I'd suggest you build some mass first before you try to get down low enough to get rid of that last bit of fat.

    keep training hard and stay in a caloric deficit. People genetically store/lose fat in different places so only time will tell on how lean you will have to be to get rid of them. Realistically, you will prob need to drop to 13% or lower for them to go away but u never know.

    I have the same problem, Focus on weight training Deadlifting and sqauting will help build up your core. You need some more mass before you need to worry about lossing the lower stomach fat. The lower stoamch fat and "love handles" are the first to come and the last to leave. However if you cut too much at your size your going to look like a stick! Look into doing a 5X5 strength program and eat 10% more calories then maintance for a year or so then cut.

    You are 18. You are skinny fat. You need to gain muscle or you will look like a terminally ill patient if you lose that fat.

    I'd kill to be 18 and skinny fat. Its time to lift and build muscle. I know you want to be all ripped to get laid and such, but now is the time to build not cut.

    Well, not sure if you are serious, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt because of your age:

    No. No specific exercise will target fat in love handles, lower ab fat, or whatever. You need to sustain a caloric deficit (losing fat over all) until they disappear. And I agree with some of the above posters that you would most likely be better off gaining muscle for a spell before dieting down to actual leanness. Your "love handles" would look far less apparent if you had some upper torso mass.

    Lower gut and love handles are the last to go, only around 10% they`ll be gone/start to.

    Work on building muscle, which will burn more fat, and the increased size of your chest and back will decrease the apparent size of your love handles, as well.

    Good luck to you.
