Starving yourself is called anorexia. Anorexia can lead to serious medical problems including but not limited to death. If you need to lose weight try eating balanced meals and exercising. Yes, eventually, but that not the most effective way at all because you are more likely to store fat in your belly if you are hungry all the time. This is because your belly is the place the body stores readily available fat, and if you are hungry all the time your body wants to put it somewhere easily accessible.

The best way to get a flat tummy is to tighten your ab muscles with exercise and eat a diet low in sugar, alcohol, and excess carbohydrates. The reason why is because if you eat too many carbs at once they turn into triglycerides in your blood almost immediately, which are then stored as fat once the body decides it can store them. And of course, the body's first choice will be your tummy. If you are already overweight and have a flabby tummy then losing weight by reducing how much you eat (not starvingthough!) will help your stomach lose fat. Be careful though since this can lower your metabolism and make you more likely to gain weight back. Also make sure you get enough protein or else your body will just break down your muscle instead.
