In brief: Avoid carbs
Abdominal fat is related to carbohydrates: breads, pastas, rice, alcohol, soda, pastries, potatoes, etc.
Decrease those and eat a low glycemic diet. Eat more lean meats, plant proteins like avocados, beans, tofu/tempeh, legumes, and fruits/veggies.

In brief: No
Eating low fat low sugar foods can decrease the accumulation of body fat, but there's nothing specific to avoid fat in the stomach area.
You cannot choose whether fat goes, just like you cannot exercise to lose fat in a specific area.
