Cut some carbs from your diet! Carbohydrates, if not burned off within 2 to 3 hours of being digest, turn to fat that accumulates in your midsection. Most carbs in the American diet are empty carbs with little nutrition anyways. Most breads, pasta, rice and potatoes are filler foods...they fill you up without providing a lot of nutrition. If you fill up on fresh or steamed veggies you'll be getting a bigger nutritional bang for your buck. Healthy carbs that you should eat include whole grains, cooked dry beans or lentils, sweet potatoes (have a lot of vitamins that outweigh the carb problem), fresh fruits (not sauces or juices) and whole grains.
Drink plenty of water and walk, walk, walk!
