Do i need to lose stomach fat before working on abs? would building abs make me look fatter and just build beneath the layer of fat?

Fat loss: happens all over the body, not just in one area like the stomach. Overall weight loss is fine and strengthening abs will help you look more toned and health, not call attention to your stomach. Please see your doctor and ask about a ketogenic diet, which is low carb and higher good fat such as coconut oil and olive oil. Peace and good health.
