In brief: Belly fat

Moderating portion size can be a valuable strategy for managing weight.
By doing so, you would likely lose belly fat and fat from other areas. You might also consider that a recent study showed that consuming saturated fats tend to increase belly fat, while polyunsaturated fats (certain vegetable oils, for eg) may decrease belly fat, so moderating portions of certain foods will particularly help.
