Hello Alfrian, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
To find out the right steps to lose fat in the abdominal area, you should first identify whether your current weight is normal or excess. Here's how to find out by calculating BMI (body mass index):
weight (kg) / height in meters squared (m ^ 2)
The following is an interpretation of the BMI results (for Asian population):
BMI over 25: obesity
BMI in the range 23-24.9: overweight
BMI in the range 18.5-22.9: normal
BMI less than 18.5: underweight
If from the BMI you have a normal weight but your stomach looks big because of the accumulation of fat, then you can try to do various exercises that can help reduce belly fat. Here is an article that you can read about sports to shrink the stomach. Apart from exercise, you are also advised to avoid foods and drinks with high sugar, reduce consumption of simple carbohydrates (white rice, white bread) and replace them with more complex carbohydrates (such as brown rice, brown rice, oats, whole wheat bread), increase fiber consumption. (fruit and vegetables), and avoiding alcohol consumption.
If from the BMI you are overweight or obese, then you must accompany exercise and dietary changes above with weight loss. Weight loss can be achieved by reducing calorie intake (from food) and increasing calorie expenditure (with exercise). If you have excess weight, then you have to reduce your meal portions too (don't skip meals, but reduce portions at each meal), and do sports with heavier intensity for a longer time (60 minutes a day).
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
