I also run a lot. I usually try to run 4 miles 2-3 days a week... if i can 5, but it's hard with school and work. what do i do? please tell me how to get ride of this!

Belly Pouch Consider CoolSculpting Complete
CoolSculpting is an ideal treatment for reducing fat in specific areas. It is an FDA cleared device for fat loss with no surgery and no downtime. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells so they are eliminated by the body. CoolSculpting selectively seeks out fat cells without affecting surrounding cells or tissues.
Coolsculpting complete adds vibrational therapy and mechanical massage to enhance the effects of the treatment

Belly Bulge Correction
Thank you for your question and photo. My suggestions --
- Your tummy bulge is not fat. Do not try liposuction!
- Your photo suggests an umbilical hernia. You can be born with this or it can come from previous surgery or injury.
- Or it may be a weakness in the tummy muscle (rectus diastasis).
- Please see a Board Certified Surgeon, in Plastic or General Surgery to have this fixed. Insurance should cover the procedure.
- Congratulations on staying so fit. You don't need to do more! Hope this helps.

Try Smart Lipo Triplex to are. Seek in person evaluations with qualified Smart Lipo docs in your area.

From your describtion, sounds like you are very fit and I do not see accumulation of extra fat in the other parts of your body. If you lie flat on your back and protrusion disappears, you most likely have some weakness in the upper part of your abdominal muscles which could be repaired surgically. A physical exam would help the diagnosis.
Loose belly pouch?
You really need an exam in person. it is hard to tell from a single photo what is causing your protrusion. If there is fat, then maybe lipo. If it is from weak muscles or spine issues then there may or may not be different options.
Liposuction can go hand-in-hand with exercise for body shaping
You appear to be doing 'your part' to keep yourself fit with diet and exercise. I'd suggest some liposuction to the abdomen to optimize your contours.
Liposuction for Lower Abdomen
Without seeing you in person, it is difficult to give you specific advice. However, if you have a stubborn area of fat on your lower abdomen, liposuction will be very helpful.
Smartlipo or CoolSculpting
You are in terrific shape. Small areas of fat, such as in your case, can be treated with Smarlipo for around a 50% reduction (but a minimally invasive procedure) or treated with CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is non-surgical but can improve that area by about 25% in women. Since there is no downtime with CoolSculpting, you can go right back to working out the next day instead of having to take 7-10 days off post Smartlipo.
