A 46-year-old member asked:

What exercises can be done to reduce a large belly?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in

Leg lifts: There is no way to spot reduce. If you have fat on your abdomen, it is because you take in more calories than you burn. You can flatten the appearance with lower abdomenal exercises, but you may also want to look into markedly reducing your carbohydrate intake. Too much Insulin in your system causes fat deposition in the stomach area.

Spot fat loss does: not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some may be abdominal fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & “bicycling” exercise on back. Do regular aerobic exercise.

Abdominal distension: I would visit your doctor and consider an abdominal xray or ultrasound to rule out whether you have obstruction or fluid in the abdomen (ascites).
