A huge belly!!! Something isn't right..

I’m in a desperate need of your help, guys!

I can’t seem to loose my belly. I’ve been a vegetarian for an year and a half . I also eat healthy – lots of nuts, fruits and vegetables, whole-grain foods, wheat/rye/sunflower seed germs, NO junk food, NO alcoholic drinks – in fact, no other kind of drinks except fresh water. As a result, I lost 22 pounds (10kg) in a year. I got thinner everywhere else except my belly. I’m asking you for HELP, guys! HELP ME get rid of this … thing. It’s as if I have a giant ball made of bed-spring put under my belly skin. I tried doing cardio workouts – nothing drastically changed. Besides, many of my friends have never been doing cardio workouts and have even more belly fat than I have and still they are flatter there.

Please.. if someone find themselves with the similar problem, share your view.

Maybe it's gluten that causes your belly to swell up. Try to eat less gluten and see what happens!

It doesn't look like excess fat to me, more like bloating and/or weak inner abdominal muscles.

If you don't have digestive problems, I think training the abs is what could help and especially

static exercises like the plank.

Yeah I agree, that doesn't look like excess fat to me either.
