    Unhappy Belly won't go away no matter what I do.

    I am 5'2, and weigh about a 120 pounds. I've been trying to grow my glutes, but my stomach has been paying the price. I've tried Keto, counting calories, and my belly still looks bloated. I am resorting to take probiotics for my digestion.

    My goal is to have a flat stomach with abs showing/the tiny waist look. I also go to the gym. I have been the heaviest I ever been and I don't know how to keep my belly from growing.

    pics? try getting into a deficit to lose a little more fat while lifting heavy to maintain the glutes you have.

    How exactly are you "counting calories"?

    List your daily calorie/macro intake.

    I'm confused, are you in a calorie surplus because you're trying to grow your glutes or are you in a calorie deficit because you're trying to lose your stomach? You need to pick one, if you're trying to lose the gut and not losing pounds its because you are taking in more calories than you are burning on a weekly basis.

    Try the Adkins diet and 1 hr of cardio a day. 45 min of serious weight training 4/5 days a week.

    The only diet that will work for fatloss is one that produces a consistent net calorie deficit and one you can adhere to over time. OP you need to lower your calories on a weekly basis.

    Close to 2 hours in the gym consistently is overkill and not necessary.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
