    Ab workouts won't address your belly. You're going to need to eat less.

    What is your workout?

    Please read the stickies in the main nutrition section. Fast metabolisms are in many ways a myth, but you definitely don't have one if you are exercising regularly and maintaining at <3000 kcal daily. You need to eat a caloric deficit if you want to keep the fat covering your abs. If you don't have much muscle then you'll end up skinny fat and it may be better to bulk for some time to ultimately get where you want to be.

    Interesting.. most of the under-eaters that claim they have "fast metabolisms" usually don't say they eat as much as a 13 year old teenager.

    If you want to gain OP, eat more food.

    Did you read the stickies in the main section like I suggested? Developing a good understanding of nutrition will guide you for life. It's worth spending 1-2 days reading through good threads to teach yourself the basics.
