Q: 

Will performing countless sit-ups help you reduce stomach fat?

A: 

The short answer is...no, doing sit-ups can't significantly decrease the size of your stomach. Obviously, any activity can contribute to a degree of weight loss, through the increase of energy expenditure (calories burned). However - for the goal of fat/weight loss - abdominal exercises shouldn't be at the top of your list, due to the small amount of calories they burn. 

Abs are built in the gym and revealed in the kitchen!
