Actually I've always had an obsessive hate for my belly, and I used to starve myself to try and get rid of that bottom layer of fat... but since I started lifting the belly fat doesn't bother me! It just feels like a curve now. The shift in mentality was helped as well by talking to a belly dancer who pointed out the biological significance of that fat (it protects the womb).
Seen in that context, a little belly fat is pretty beautiful
"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."
