Stomach is the most important part of body in respect to personality. The tummy which is showing gives a negative impact to the personality of the male as well as of the female. On the other hand a person looks smart if their tummy is flat.
It is not important that you should have six packs but you should have flat tummy. Exercise to reduce stomach is only required if your tummy is bulging out. What you eat is most important factor rather best to the power exercises which the people start doing without understanding. Fat accumulates around stomach first which one can feel as tire around stomach.
Out working system is also important in making our stomach big. If we are just sitting rather doing table job then we should walk for long distances. Walking is the best exercise.
One should stop taking fatty or junk food in case one wants to reduce their stomach. The junk food or the fast food is fat accumulator which is gathering at the stomach first. Taking lot of cold drink is also injurious which is again accumulating fat. Rice should be used only after rinsing it properly. Potato and other vegetables which are fat accumulators should be avoided.
How to reduce stomach:
1. One should increase the intake of water during the whole day to the quantity of 7 to 8 liters.
2. In morning the person who is having bulging stomach should take warm water just after brushing teeth. Add single spoon of honey and ting of lemon. This should be done for regularly for month.
3. Avoid fried food as mentioned about the junk food.

8. One should not remain empty stomach for long hours.
9. Should increase intake of green vegetables on daily basis.
10. If one is tea to taller should avoid consuming tea with having anything with it. One should have a cup of tea with at least two biscuits.
There is an old proverb: ‘Have Breakfast like king, lunch like laborer and Supper / dinner like bagger.’ The literal meaning of this proverb is not in the nouns used here but it is explaining the way one should consume these three meals. The breakfast should be heavy as one has to do labour in the whole day. Lunch less, because the rest of the day the physical labour will not be much. Dinner the least as at night one is not going to physical labour and the fat will start accumulate.
One other thing which is important, that the married couples should not indulge in intercourse just after dinner. This is another reason for increase in stomach.
