    This.

    Also, women generally struggle with removing this lower belly fat because it's in our genes to have it. For baby-making, the fat down there helps protect the womb.

    Bottom line: just reduce your body fat overall.

    And for the record, every man i know loves the curve of that area. I haven't met a man who likes women who doesn't.

    So, you know, I wouldn't worry about it over-much. If that's an interest or concern of yours.

    Suck your stomach in as you work out - particularly as you plank.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Super flat is definitely less sexy than a nice curve. In general, but especially in that area.
