Was curious if others have experienced hard belly fat.
Although like many of us the weight gain is a struggle, I finally have lost the weight, however I still have belly fat. It really was a shock to me because I have always been slender
I have a question. How can I get rid of my belly fat and gain muscle. I try and try and try and I gain fat and very little muscle. The only bit of muscle, is in my arms. Any advice, will be greatly appreciated, thank you.

What has everyone used that has been able to lose the visceral belly fat that comes along with hiv? Exercise has done nothing to reduce mine and it fluctuates in size. I've thought about egrifta, but not sure the side effects are worth it and not sure I can get coverage on my insurance provider. Thoughts?
