Eat fewer calories: After doctor checks belly, try natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories.

Big Belly- Grainfree: The easiest way to reduce dangerous abdominal fat - which is metabolically active and causes disease such as diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure - is to stop eating wheat products and reduce other grains such as corn and rice. Eat lots of protein, unlimited vegetables and fibrous fruits, seeds, raw nuts, and your belly will reduce quickly. I recommend "wheat belly" by dr. Davis.
