Critique my body.
I am having a really tough time losing this freaking belly fat. I have this "spare tire" around my stomach, I have recently started HIIT training every other day about 2 weeks ago. My diet is in check. I started an ephedra and caffeine stack at the beginning of the week. Can anybody recommend some other workouts, I was injured Afghanistan so long distance running and sprinting is out of the question as I only have one good leg.
This morning I had 3/4 cup of cheerios with 1/4 cup of 1% percent, 1/4 cup of pistachios, and a bottle of water. Lunch is two chicken breasts with 1/2 cup of brown rice. Dinner is 2 Talapia filets, spinach with carrots, cucumbers, and avacado and balsamic vinaigrette. I am disciplined in my dieting so this will do for the next month. I am also working on increasing my muscle on my upper chest because of my saggy tatas. I did a cycle of deca when I was 18 and now that I am 22 my freaking boobs are just barely recovering. I was a dumbass back then. I am looking at cutting out this spare tire before I continue bulking. If any body has some tips on losing this stubborn fat let me know because I am tired of looking like a pear.

Up the Cardio from every other day to 5 or 6 days a week. Do HIIT every other time you do cardio, and Low Intensity the other times. Try it on an empty stomach and see if that works for you. And lift heavy, basic movements (squat, deadlift, and presses) 4 days a week.
Slash your carbs dramatically, and be persistent, and you will lose the spare tire!

Get a better diet , carb cycling could help as long as you keep it lean and easy...High carb day- Low carb day - No carb day (no complex carbs i mean , fibrous and veggies are needed after all)
High carb get at least some good 1.5grams of carbs per pound of body weight
Low carb get .75 to 1 gram of carbs per pound of body weight
No carb go for only 3 to 5 meals with veggies and the rest pure protein , if needed up healthy fats a bit so you are not too low on caloric defienciency , and throw in some calorie counting throughout all this...If you do Maintenance calories (or +20%) On high carb day and the rest are below maintenance you will still lose weight , try to have only 2 (MAX 3) high carb days in your week and workout heavily in those days (if so do back (and deadlifts please...) with chest on a high carb day and on the second one do legs) , low carb days are still workout days and never have 2 no carb days back to back...keep up the cardio either fasted , or twice a day (shorter cardios) , or once hiit long one in the evening , either of those is fine...but at least 5 to 6 days a week.
Edit: ALSO cut the cereals...if you want nice carbs go for sweet potatoes , oatmeal!! without sugar or milk , old fashion and slow cooked...and throw in brown rice too!! Lima beans are awesome to keep it in check on low carb days too!!

I'd give a read on the Intermittent fasting routine (leangains) and look into empty stomach cardio.
It has been doing wonders for me and I had the exact same problematic region as you do (top 2 abs show, bottom is just a slush)

I know what worked for me. High protein, low Carb, weight training, over a gal water a day. ECA is a magic mix. Ull b ripped in a few weeks

Stomach vacuums helped the appearance factor for that, but the handles and all is excess fat, it is just the targeted area, empty stomach cardio helped me on that one.

Look up lean gains. Works wonders. The first couple weeks are a bit rough whilst your adjusting to intermittent fasting but it's worth it in the end.

I would suggest a cortisol control supplement and a carb cycling diet has always been great for losing fat and preserving my muscle mass. You could start with a generic carb cycle diet such as high, mid, low carbs. When you get below 15% body fat I think the Ultimate Diet 2.0 from Lyle Mcdonald is an excellent read on a carb cycling like diet.

Hey thanks for all the feedback, although I have looked at all of it, I have not responded lol, well I really got ahold of my diet over the past couple months, upped my cardio and cut out sugars, a typical day of meals is this;
3 eggs and a 1/4 cup of steel cut oats plain with water and a 24 mg protien shake
usually something like a mango in between meals
lunch is a lean protein, chicken breasts or fish usually,
typically a salad in between meals, a piece of wheat bread with natty peanut butter before I train
dinner is typically some sort of fish or chicken again, after the gym I have a scoop of creapure and 24 mg whey protien shake
In one day I will intake at least one gallon of water,
I try my hardest to cut out refined sugars, I do not drink heavily and if I do drink it is usually once a month, I also started to train in martial arts in this time

I got my bf% like 3 weeks ago and it was 13, I like to think I am closer to ten now.
Important to note is the first picture I was 225, I am now 209, shooting for around 204

hate to be the bad guy here but you are definitely not 10% in that last picture. Probably closer to about 15%. What method did you use to test?

Last time I was calipered it was 13% and that was around a month before that picture, 10 is probably low but 15 is very high bro.
