This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

IMO you should always eat after exercise to replenish glycogen and protein.

Waiting (or not) will not be the gating factor in determining if you lose belly fat.

Losing fat is (largely) a matter of math: expend more calories than you consume. Differences caused by specific post-working meal timing will be trivial compared to overall, long-term habits.
