Okay so I'm underweight and some of my bones are slowly starting to show, but I've got so much fat on my stomach and it makes me sick. Why can't I lose fat on that area, this looks so weird and out of proportion and disgusting :( Does anybody have experience with this? Is this normal? Is there something I can do about it?

It sounds like you have BDD, to be honest. I bet you your stomach is actually tiny, but you can't see that because of your disorder. It naturally looks bigger throughout the day due to food, your bladder filling up or just general bloating. Especially if you're not getting enough fibre.

I really don't think that's the case, I'm 100% sure there's a lot of fat on my stomach. Also in the morning, so it's not the food. I might post a pic here to show that it's not BDD but I'm not sure yet, it makes me feel sooo ashamed

my stomach is like that, and it's not BDD for me at least

the only way you can lose the fat there is by losing weight, but exercising and toning and building muscle will fix the overall appearance of your stomach and rest of body

if you dont exercise you can become "skinny fat" which just means you have a higher body fat percentage which can be fixed by fixing the muscle to fat ratio ig

if you dont poo often your stomach can look worse, too, because it builds up and makes you bloated

for the exercising and stuff tho you cant gain muscle on very low restriction or really even with any deficit at all, but you can try to help keep your current amount of muscle while you lose fat by exercising reasonably and eating enough protein

I mean without knowing what your diet and activity level is it's hard to give advice. Eat healthy foods , avoid refined carbs, eat protein, stay active. Find out what your body type is and eat for that (lots of websites that can help with this).
Also in females there is always naturally more fat on our lower stomachs, it's an evolutionary thing to protect our reproductive organs plus fat is needed for our hormones.
I've read that the 'dr ozz swimsuit slim down' drink does what it claims but I've never stuck with it long enough to know.
