In brief: Eat less; & exercise
To help the tummy look flatter, one can do exercises to build very strong abdominal muscles.
It will take a lot of work, and will burn off calories. One must not eat more calories than he burns off, or he cannot lose weight. Helpful weight loss foods are natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (without salad dressing).

In brief: Diet and Exercise
You can't target weight loss from a specific area, but loosing weight in general will help.
You need to burn more calories than you consume. Watch your diet-eat healthy, cut out junk food and exercise several times a week. If your stomach is what you're unhappy with, you can tone up the muscles-sit ups are a good way to start. Anything that uses your abdominal muscles will add tone.
