If you're trying to lose fat off your stomach, doing ab exercises will not do the slightest thing about that. You cannot lose fat locally, only from your entire body simultaneously. The relatively small size of your abs compared to the big, hungry muscles like your legs, glutes, chest and back muscles, means that they can only do a tiny bit for your metabolism. The only thing you'll get is strong abs hidden by the exact same amount of fat you had when you started. Which is something. Do not believe the myth of AbTronics, Body By Jake or any other crappy daytime TV products. They are ALL opportunistic liars, using models who were buff anyway.

If you're already all muscle, all you can really do is do more ab workouts. All kinds of ab workouts. If you already do a lot of ab workouts, maybe you just have stubborn fat pockets on your stomach. That's a very common place for anyone to have fat. It's also some of the hardest to get rid of. You just need to lower the carb intake in your diet if this is the case, and keep the ab workouts going.

You should try doing some ab work at the gym. Try starting out with some sit ups, planks, v sits, and leg lifts. You can also incorporate core workouts while strength training by standing on an exercise ball mat. Most importantly, in order to get defined abs, you need to do alot of cardio. That is the easiest way to get rid of fat and to show the muscles that you have underneath.

How can a person transform the fat in your stomach area into muscle under a month and a half?

You do not "transform" fat to muscle. You burn fat and build muscle. If your fat and your look for a six pack and you think fat is transformed to muscle good luck with that... My eight pack looks best at six percent body fat. So if your calling your stomach area fat I'll assume your twenty plus precent body fat. The only way your doing that in a month and a half is dehydration, not eating, cardio and lypo to get rid of the fat. And some thing like ab ripper x to build muscle. Abs are for people who know what they're doing there is not a quick way to get them. Until you learn your not going to have them

You are thin but with some fat around your stomach and hips how can you eliminate this quickly?

You can do some exercises in effort to get rid of some of the fat that is there. Your body actually needs fat and there is some fat you can't get rid of-that's just how it is. Bone structure also matters. Fat around your hips and eliminating stomach fat quickly? The first thing that comes to my mind is liposuction, but that is very dangerous and costs money. Try going on a SAFE diet, maybe discuss this matter with your dietitian, you don't want to harm yourself in any way!
