Unfortunately there is no method that will get rid of a midriff bulge overnight. It will take hard work and dedication on the part of the individual to reduce the size of their midriff. And sadly, for those people who believe that just doing sit ups and stomach crunches will reduce their midriff, this is not true.
Doing sit ups and stomach crunches will only turn the fact that is already present into muscle. If you wish to tone your stomach whilst reducing the size of the midriff you must engage is some kind of cardio exercise such as running. For efficient fat burning to occur you will usually have to reach around at least 30 minutes of continuous running. Once you have begun to reach this level several times a week (remember you must be consistent) then you should start doing some stomach crunches to turn the reduced fat into muscle.
When you are doing stomach crunches, don't stop as soon as you feel a little bit of pain. The pain that you feel is what turns the fat into muscle and although it may hurt, it is a good thing. Remember, no pain, no gain.
If you have never done stomach crunches before, then you should start small, maybe with about 20 a day and then slowly build it up.
And you must remember that this is a slow process. Doing 100 sit ups will not cause a super toned six pack to appear overnight. Keep working at it and eventually you will start to gain your ideal physique.
If you are a woman, then it is important to remember that the little area of stomach beneath your belly button is supposed to still be a little bit 'bulgy'. This is natural because this is where a baby will grow if you ever get pregnant and that extra layer of fat is essential to keeping the baby warm. Although that doesn't mean that you can't have a toned stomach before you bear children.
