In brief: Medical examination

See a physician. There are too many possibilities that can cause abdominal swelling, and I do not know your personal medical history or background to make a medical diagnosis here.

In brief: Depends on cause

If you are lucky and the only problem is extra weight causing your swollen abdomen, then diet exercise and weight loss is recommended.
Other causes of a swollen abdomen are ascites, fluid, mass, bowel distention, organ enlargement/dysfunction. A check up with your doctor, some simple diagnostic tests, like an ultrasound will guide you. Doctor approval before diet is important.
