My favorite book somewhat on this subject is Apples (top heavy) and Pears (bottom heavy). It goes into the medical significance of where women carry their weight. Apples tend to carry weight in their stomach, and I think at the end she talks about tips for eating healthy. For me, what helped is eating healthy and eating loads of fiber. I mostly found it in fruits like berries, cherries, plums, etc. Raisin bran is an easy way to get fiber. I was always err um releasing, but my tummy was flat and I am an apple. Exercise only helped.
