A lot of that belly is nothing more than trapped wind. The rest of it is solid food and liquid that is hanging out in your abdomen.

6 Get Some Core Stability

Do you have a saggy belly? This is because you have core muscles that function poorly. Don’t bother doing those crunches. They will not target abdominal muscles. Instead, combine aerobic exercise with eating healthy. For aerobic exercise, all you have to do is walk for thirty minutes each day.
