Even this challenging situation would ease
Some years ago flat stomach or protruding tummy was seen with a view of appeal to the eyes. Such people were projected in movies and ads showed such models. So it was human tendency to be like them. The over highlight on the matter nade people have some inferior complex if their tummy is not flat. This is commercially exploited by many wonder drugs and aids like belts, 'sweaters' etc. It still continues now also.
However now people look at the flat or obese tummy from the viewpoint of health also. It is seen that many life style contributed health issues are seen more in obese people. A bulging tummy is an indication that the person is indulging in pleasure eating and drinking, leads a sedentary life without much physical activity or exercise and takes things easy. Mostly these lead to acquiring lifestyle related issues like BP, Diabetes etc. So the first indication being a bulging tummy, people who are aware or health conscious start to reduce tummy fat. However the basic lazy tendency in them tries to find quick ways rather than reduce fat increasing food or increase proper physical activity of exercise. They also want to show others that they are fit and healthy and do things which apear to us as fancy and crazy.
Unlike modern life, there were no labour and time saving appliances available. So people were exerting good physical activity. Their food habits were subjected traditional regulations and variety. That ensured that they are fit and did not suffer from sedentary life health issues. So they were not bothered about whether their tummy was protruding or flat. Sometimes a bulge in the middle was considered as 'paunch of prosperity".
No doubt the people who are obese don't have a good body shape and are not liked by the people as they don't have a pleasing personality as a slim person has.
Balanced diet always help to make our fit and health as it provides the essential nutrients to the body and exercises certainly tones our body.

There are people who look great with their pot belly. Look at Nepolean Bonaparte and understand the fact. He was a great warrior with a belly pot. There are people who eat less but have a bulging belly. There are people who eat a lot and remain with a flat belly.
When I was a boy, I had a big stomach, When I was a youth, I had a flat stomach, now my stomach is not seen.
