How do I get rid of my post-pregnancy belly fat?

I had a baby girl a little over a year ago and I've lost my pregnancy weight, however, I still have a poochy belly. I do 30 mins of cardio 5 days a week, yoga 3x's a week and strength training (ab workouts included) 3x's a week. My doc says I don't have a pregnancy hernia, which is what I thought it was. Can u give advice as to any advice as to how I can do to get rid of my pooch? Thanks!

It may not be fat. A lot of time after your skin has stretched so much it will not be able to tighten back up. Sometimes the only was is a tummy tuck that would remove the loosened skin. I am not recommending this in any way.

My daughter turns 1 yr old this Saturday - so I know where you are coming from. Post baby body weight does not equal post baby body!! I would suggest increasing the intensity of your cardio workouts, making sure you include intervals (alternating walking with fast walking or sprinting). And be sure your strength training includes combination moves that work multiple muscles including the core (plank rows, push-ups, squat with military press, etc) rather than single muscle groups. Good luck!
