One of my friends is very fat although hes not eating much, yet hes growing like anything, Is there a way to reduce fat from hips and tummy area where fat deposits alot and it is very difficult to remove. There are some excercises but of no avail, does he starve to death for that, no no thats not fair!

Well, first and formost, i never do agree on pills to keep slim, i don't like the idea of supplements that you have to take to so called absorb your fat, then get rid of it once you went to the toilet. I do believe in good and healthy food. As you know, Food that we eat today aren't as quality as they were before. All the chemicals from pesticides, and growth hormones, ended up being consume by us. And to that effect, some of us (actually many of us, LOL), gain weight. So the solution, we need to consume less "not quality food" ( especially fast food, ever wonder why it is called the fast food ), and eat more vegetables, fruits, and try to socialize in public parks, or do some running while you're there. I guarantee that in a month or two ( depends on how serious you are in getting slim and healthy ), you will get slim.

Yeah may be... but don't forget that for every pills that we consume there are side effects, and what will happen after we stop taking the pills. Externally we may not be affected, but how about our body? do you think our body can 'operate' normally once we sop using the pills? Will it continue to burn fat as it does with pills, and most of all, can we maintain the weight if we stop eating pills?

He doesn't have to starve! Fat is not lost from specific places, it is lost all over. Now, some people store more fat in certain places than others. Fat is like gas in the tank of your car...it must be used. Fat is energy stored. The best thing he can do is to get involved with a fitness program, including resistance (weight) training, and cardiovascular (aerobic) exercise. There is not one way to burn fat. You burn fat all the time, as long as you are not taking in more calories than you are using. The resistance exercise will make the muscles harder and tighter, and burn a lot of calories and fat. Aerobic exercise will help with endurance and assist your body in losing fat more effectively. The weight training is important because muscle is your fat-burning metabolism. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn...even while you sleep. Starvation dieting causes you to lose muscle and eventually, even a small amount of food will cause weight gain. Ask him to try eating several small meals each day and exercise. You cannot spot-reduce fat (it comes off all over), but with resistance training, you can spot-reduce size.

Does that friend of yours do any kind of activity? I mean, the reason why it gets stored is because it doesn't get used up. Perhaps he should try a sport that he might enjoy? Excercise is also a good thing. Of course, it doesn't take a short span of time to remove massive fat. It also took time to gain that massive fat but, at a much quicker pace. Unless your friend is willing to go under the doctor's knife, you friend should just get into a lot of activities

there is a lot of solution to your friends problem...there is so many program exercise that he can look to the internet that he dont need to go to the gym anymore..programs that can be done at home and very effective.maybe your friend must consult a gym trainer or a food nutritionist if he really wants to get rid of those fats..but i think a few crunches everyday will help him get rid of it without suffering of not eating...maybe he should eat foods that rich in fiber...

I'd say exercise regularly + eat right - this would be the active way, but it will definitely take a while. However, if your friend has a lot of money to spare and prefers to do a short-cut and opt to have the passive way, he or she can have Radio Frequency Treatments. This is a series of non-surgical, non-invasive spot reduction treatment(s) that specifically targets problem areas. It is getting popular here in the Philippines.
