Spot fat loss does: not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some may be abdominal fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & “bicycling” exercise on back. Do regular aerobic exercise.

No spot loss : You cannot lose fat in specific places without surgery. General weight loss and toning will help you lose the belly fat and improve your overall health.
