In brief: One program that

Exercises your abdominal muscles.
You lose fat by losing weight (3500 calories to the pound) but it is difficult to tell your body when to pull the fat from. Abdominal exercise can improve the muscles in your abdomen below the fat, and improve your physique. If you are overweight, you often are Insulin resistant, and the weight is stored in your abdomen. Overall weight loss will help.

In brief: No targeted fat loss

I agree w dr. Sneid.
Here is no such thing as spot fat loss. You would need to lose weight in general & a certain proportion of that will be abdominal fat. This can be done by eating healthfully, being physically active and making sure that calories burned exceed calories consummed.However you can improve your appearance by toning your abs. To tighten your abdominal muscles consider doing crunch.

reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & the “bicycling” exercise on your back. Exercises that will work your buttocks include: lunges, squats, dumbbell squats, stepups, toe taps, plie, squats with kickbacks, hip extensions, one legged dead-lifts and the gamut of aerobic exercises (running, swimming, bicycling, kickboxing, walking).
