Talk with the doctor

One reason for a big belly is too much carbs in the diet. If you want to slim the belly, minimize carbs and opt for whole grains like whole grain bread, quinoa, pasta and such.
Get more proteins and less carbs. Men have to eat 20-60 g protein daily depending on the workouts or daily moves. Examples are pork, chicken, eggs, lean beef and tofu. They reduce the belly fat and are great proteins for muscle building.
Even though women tend to eat sweets more, men also have to watch this closely. Skip the sodas, sugary drinks, candies and cakes/pastries. Or at least limit them.
No matter the diet, it is all worthless if you are not moving. Try some workout programs and see which suits you best.
Losing this fat is a hard thing to do, so you have to make more life changes for both looks and health.
