First, realize that body fat is lost as a whole rather than just from the belly alone. Seeing as how the body loses that fat from everywhere at the same time, working all of the body at once is a great way to encourage fat loss. When muscles are being used, the body wants to keep them. When weight is an obvious burden, the body wants to get rid of it. You need to convince your body of fat being this burden. Total body circuits, intervals, etc. should work great for this if you eat appropriately.
