    Crunches don't really help you lose belly fat. They can tone your muscles under belly fat but the way to burn fat is cardio.

    I would focus on cardio and core workouts to get stronger. Even start lifting weights....... I'd start with something like this:

    Do what something called kickback, you lay on the floor feet about 3-4 inches off the ground and kick your feet up and down. Also, planks, and push up, and complete sit ups slowly up and slowlydown count to like 3 each time (up and down). Also, squats and lunges. And kettle bell (ball??) workouts can help.

    Abs are made in the kitchen and strengthen in the gym. My ab routine are situps, ball sit ups, hanging leg lifts, and reverse sit ups. Oh planks help too.

    The only thing you can do to lose fat is to diet.  Fat is not fixable by exercise, only diet.

    Crunches won't help lose belly fat. Cardio will.

    What you eat is important. Consume protein, veggies, and fruits. For exercise, cardio works for me.

    Abs are made in the kitchen.  You can do as many crunches as you can do all day , every day but that won't really cut it.  You need to watch what you eat and try to eat as cleanly as possible.  You will also need to pair up cardio with any kind of strength and ab training you do.
