I'm 5'11 and 225lbs (down from 237 6 weeks ago) with 15% body fat. I've been hitting the weights pretty hard and even though I haven't loss as much weight as I wanted to I am seeing definition in my chest and arms. My goal is to get down to 200lbs in 2 months, by any means necessary.
The problem is I can't lose the belly fat. I eat clean 90% of the time, pound water and eat foods that are belly friendly (almonds, avocados, etc).
I sometimes try and mix in cardio but I have some ligament damage t one of my knees.
I know you can't spot train to get abs, so any advice will help.

At 5'11 225 chances are your not 15% bf. eating clean is good but is worthless for weight loss if you don't have a calorie deficit. I would read into some of the stickies and get your nutrition squared away. That's generally the hardest part. Hitting the weights is good but your gonna need some cardio to lose the weight. Try low impact stuff like the bike, swimming, Ect. Best of luck

but you need to re-read the nutrition stickies because it is evident you are missing some important concepts.... All you're answers are in there. Eating "clean" is worthless and means nothing for specifically losing bf.
Calories in vs. Calories out (Weigh/Measure/Calculate Everything you put in your mouth)-
20% Deficit is a great place to start
Macros-This is specific to YOU
Lifting heavy (for YOU) weights
Time and Consistency-
Focus Like a Hawk - on Short Term Long & Term Goals- Write Everything Down in Logs. Empirical evidence that you can see over time , makes all the difference.

For most people belly fat is the last to go so you have to lean out everywhere else before your stomach gets lean. Just be patient, stick to what you're doing and you will see results.Man cannot remake himself without suffering for he is both the marble and the sculptor.
