Is belly fat genetic??

Hey all,
Let me first come out and say that I have been a bulimic on a off for nine years. So yes, I do have issues with food and weight. But I did have kind of a general question, as it also relates to myself. I was a chubby kid, not obese, but about 20 lbs overweight. I lost that weight when I was about 13. I have dealt with a lot of health problems, such as asthma, and at one point I was extremely underweight due to being on so much medication and losing my appetite. The thing is,even at a low weight I had a lot of belly fat (not "imaginary" belly fat, I know some women who have flat tummys think their stomache is huge!) and now that I am at a healthy weight, I am slim overall but I still have this chubby belly. So I was wondering if it it genetic?? I can lose fat everywhere but my stomache. I also know that belly fat is the most dangerous kind of fat so that concerns me. Is there any combination of foods that promote fat loss, especially around the abdomen? Thanks!
