im by no means a dietician, and a lot of people on this site will be able to give you better advice than me... but I would say...
  • Drink as much water as you can, you want your p*ss to be invisible
  • Exercise! situps, ab work
  • Skip the pills!

Nothing blasts fat like interval or repitition training, sprint for 60 seconds (at about 90% your v02 max) and then recover until you reach your target heart rate, as soon as you hit your THR sprint again for 60 secs., repeat for 20-30 minutes, this is TOUGH, if you dont know how to get your thr:
220 - age - resting heart rate x .70 + resting heart rate= target heart rate, if this intensity is too high you can adjust the intensity accordingly, change the .70 in the equation to .60 which will lower the thr

NOTHING shreds fat more effectiviley

Make sure you take 2-3 days break in between this type of cardio training, do tempo runs and fartleks on days in between, drink WATER and forget the supplements! With this you dont need them

Absolutely, interval training is very benefecial to blasting away fat and burning calories faster. I've incorporated them every other day into my normal jogging/sprinting and I've noticed a big difference in my endurance.
I'd start off with 20 seconds hard running, 10 seconds fast walking. I do 8 of these per session before I do my cool-down jog. It's a good way to ease into the routine and increase as you feel better.

Interval running mainly consists of running your maximum speed, resting with a lower intensity (fast walking or sprinting), then picking back up your maximum speed. I don't have much more info, other than I've been told it's one of the most effective conditioning exersizes and helps as much or more than a long distance run.
shannab's logic seems like the best way to go if you're looking for a specific target heart rate. I'm really not, I just use them for endurance and to blast calories.
