Well the easiest way to lose weight in your tummy without excersizing is to cut out carbs and sodium. So you actually need to start eating at home more since restaurants go crazy with the salt. And south beach might be good to follow which will make your stomach super flat by design.

Like ModernDaisy said, eat at home. Drink lots of water and fruits and veggies with a high water content (cucumbers, watermelon, etc.) to help with bloat. This will help with any bloat.

cut out any extra sodium you eat and drink a ton of water. it works! make sure you don’t cut your sodium to 0 though because that can make you very ill. Just no canned soups, no spice mixes loaded with salt, and no extra salt on the table! Lean cuisines and things like that are loaded with it too.

Add a touch of lemon juice to your water and drink lots of it! The lemon juice makes the body retain hardly no water and flushes your system out.

I vote South Beach (but the original version) — I lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks on that before! No carbs outside of vegetables, very low salt, cut out sodas, eat 3-5 oz light protein with every meal – no eating out! no pre-cooked meals! no frozen meals/food!

It’s strict, but you can lose a lot of bloat and water weight in no time if you really follow it (and add some extra exercise to your routine) – just make sure you eat at least 1200 calories a day.

Spanx is an easier option though!

I agree with ginnyc: Eat right and wear Spanx!

Ditto on no carbs and sodium.  If you keep your diet to non-processed foods (ie: only eat real food) nothing processed and no extra sugar anything – you’ll drop it easy.
