Everyone desires it, whether most persons want to admit it or not!

Having a flat tummy comes with a lot of perks, from super confidence to not having to struggle with zipping up those jeans.


It may not be a secret that the best way to a six-pack is regular exercise and a healthy diet (even if it's no diet at all), but there's a right way and wrong way to a flat stomach. Read on for the ultimate guide to getting flat abs.

Know the Formula 

Getting flat abs isn't about starving yourself or living at the gym. Reducing belly fat involves a mix of smart eating and effective exercise. Make sure you eat enough food to keep your body from experiencing hormone imbalances; eating too little (fewer than 1200 calories a day) reduces the amount of the fat-burning hormone leptin in your body, which will slow down weight loss. And if you're just exercising without changing your diet, you'll spend a lot of time at the gym with little results.

Doing regular posture-building exercises pack a double punch when it comes to busting that belly. Having good posture helps you look slimmer instantly while sticking to a posture-building routine every day will strengthen your ab muscles, and help get you well on your way to a six-pack.

Fight the Fat 

Abs exercises will help define those muscles, but don't forget cardio for overall weight loss; otherwise, all those sit-ups will go to waste. If you want results fast, try high-intensity interval training, which has been proven to be one of the best ways to fight belly fat.


Having too much stress can lead to higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol in your body, which can increase the amount of fat you store around your belly. Can't seem to de-stress? Take a few minutes each day to relax.

HERE IS A Simple Bedtime Drink For Flat Tummy

Start with Oatmeal 

The secret to getting flat abs includes a diet that helps shrink that midsection. The best things to eat include foods high in fiber and other foods that help you beat the bloat. Swap your normal breakfast for a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, for example; the fiber in the oatmeal will aid in digestion, and the antioxidants in blueberries may help you shed ab fat.

Drink to Detox 

It's not in the foods you eat—what you drink can help de-bloat and flatten your tummy as well, so bottoms up! Drinking a glass of water every morning, for example, will help you alkalize your body—which helps you burn fat and detox your system. Besides lemon water, add this drink to your routine so you can regularly detox every day.

Things to Stay Away From 

There are those foods that help slim your middle, and those that make you feel like a bloated balloon. As you continue your ab-flattening workout plan, be sure to avoid foods that cause bloating, like broccoli and cabbage, when things start getting serious.
