Does lifting weights have any effect on belly size?

Does lifting weights have any effect in increasing or reducing belly size? Or is it just the cardio's and ab exercises thing? I am seriously concerned about this because major part of my training involves lifting weights and not cardio or abs exercises which is increasing my belly size as I consume heavy calories each day.

    Lifting weights is a very effective way to lose body fat, especially for men. It won't cancel out eating too much though.

    If you're eating more than you need to grow you'll get fat.

    The more muscle mass you carry the more calories you burn when you are resting thus making fat loss easier.

    It's called a power belly for a reason... However, in the past, Pudz defied that as he was ripped.
