You cannot target an area for fat loss, and doing crunches doesn't make stomach fat disappear either. Greats abs takes a good diet and cardio and thats 80%+ of it.

To shed some fat you have to do 30 minutes maximum 3/7 (if you jog for longer periods your body would begin to drop cortisol in your blood which feeds up on your muscle tissues and helps you store fat instead) and do Tabatas like this one X-treme Fat Killer Tabata 3/7 in the days you don't jog. With this, and healthy food full of proteins and less carbs (especially junk food), you'll get slimmer in no time

Well said, Kyle and Tony!!  DIET(abs are made in the kitchen and not the gym) and cardio(HIIT, TABATA etc) are the way to go.
Don't fall into a spot reducing trap.

Spot reduction is possible, although not as effective as movements that recruit more muscle. So, go ahead and work that core to flatten the stomach, but supplement it with other exercises
