Just stop eating the food you eat. No matter your genetics, all of our bodies operate the same. If your body has a caloric deficit, you will lose fat (and vise versa). So what you need to do is cut down the amount of calories you get in and run in order to burn calories. When I was getting on the bigger side (pot belly from drinking lol), I cut out all drinks except water, because it has 0 calories. I also ran 4 times a week. Not only that, but if you drink a lot of water, it helps you shed water weight. Cut out all snacks and unhealthy food from your diet. If you're poorer (like me) buy a can or two of oatmeal (yes, plain). Get some bananas and lettuce.
Stick to strictly low calorie diet. You'll shed the pounds very fast if you do this. Last, but not least, eat less. The body doesn't need food as much as we feed it. The longer you go without eating, the more fat (stomach fat!) your body will burn for energy. So do some fasting every now and then, especially in the morning, as you fast already from sleeping, prolonging that fast will increase the amount of calories burned. Your body will adjust to eating less and you will get slim super fast. Also, start lifting.
be careful fasting that type of dieting can really come back to bite you in the ass especially if you are also trying to put on muscle, its almost impossible to "cut" and also put on muscle mass. sixpackshortcuts goes into that stuff, its better to operate on a cutting cycle then a muscle gaining cycle and vice versa.
but yeah, biggest thing to help lose weight is watch what you eat, change your diet, and start drinking lots of water instead of soda and other drinks.
deadlifts are a great high intensity exercise too, the more muscle groups you incorporate into an exercise = more calories burned, deadlifts pretty much work your entire body. you learn to love em, at first they are a real pain in the ass but its worth it lol.
edit: one thing about cardio is that you have to be careful to not over-do it, my dad back in his 20s use to do so much cardio exercises that even though he was taking in like 8000 - 10,000 calories a day he could barely put on weight (muscle mass).
