For me, I found that by walking each day, 5 miles average, immediately starting taking the belly fat down and off. My Dr told me, since I was definitely watching my diet, I was doing the best I could to lose in this area and it sure worked for me.

I tend to have the same problem. I don't think the food has anything to do with it. As pixsidust stated below, it really is a matter of exercise to firm up the stomach/abs with leg lifts, sit ups and other types of exercise that concentrates results there; however, overall burning of calories and cardio health comes from a varied workout including walking, running, swimming, jumping rope, cycling, vacuuming your floors or vacuuming MY floors or whatever you can do (barring any physical limitations). General food for health is also about common sense. We know the right foods and the right portions. Sometimes we listen and sometimes we don't. Stay away from the sugars, transfats and other bad fats, heavy starches, carbs, etc. Remember that losing weight or fat isn't about going hungry… it's about eating right!

What I have learned over the years is that if food is going to cause fat, it will do so all over your body, not just a particular area. Just as exercise will cause you to lose weight and fat from all over your body. It is not area specific. Many things can be contributing factors, genetics, menopause, stress, improper digestion, eating late at night etc… Here is an article that may help you.
