Flatten Your Stomach without Surgery

Everyone wants to have a flat stomach, but it isn’t always easy to get the kind of results you would like when you would like them.
Unless you’re able to have
body contouring treatments, that will laser away your fat deposits for you, you're stuck working on flattening your tummy the old fashioned way.
Remember, you can’t go from fat to flat in an instant by simply using exercise, and you can’t just do crunches to flatten your stomach. Losing the belly fat has to be a whole-body weight loss exercise. Of course, doing more exercise, ridding your body of fat and getting fitter will benefit you overall, so make that your focus, and a flatter tummy will eventually show up as a result.

Here are a few things you’ll need to do to lose fat, tone up, and trim down your waist:

Count Calories

Yes, it’s boring, and it can be complicated, but in order to achieve a 1-2 pounds of weight loss each week, you need to reduce your calories by between 5000 and 1000 each day. That makes counting your calories important. Doing so will not only help you achieve a flatter stomach, but it’ll also help to lower your cholesterol, cut your chances of heart disease, and reduce your risk of hypertension - providing of course, you don't use up all your calories on fatty greasy foods. Remember that the majority of your calories should be from healthy whole foods. I like to use the app My Fitness Pal to help me count calories. A food scale has also been a great investment that helps me to weight my proteins to make sure I am eating the proper servings and not going over my daily calorie allotment.

Give the Ab Exercises a Rest

As I mentioned above, you can’t get rid of fat on the stomach by solely focusing on that area. If you’re spending your days doing lots of crunches and sit-ups, you’re probably wasting your time. You’d be better off doing aerobic exercises that exercise the whole body, such as running or calisthenics. Aim for at least thirty, but ideally sixty minutes each day and the fat will soon drop off. Then, you can work on building those abs of steel if that’s what you desire.


Yes, even if you’re a woman you should be lifting weight if you want to maintain a healthy weight and a flat, toned stomach. No, it won’t turn you into a big bodybuilder! Ideally, you should lift twice a week as a minimum. If that sounds daunting, don’t worry - it’s pretty easy to pick up with a little instruction from a personal trainer. Also  because lean muscle burns more calories, you’ll be able to eat more while still making progress!

Clean Up Your Diet

For a flat stomach, not only do you need to stick to lean proteins, whole grains, and of course, lots of fruits and veggies, but you also need to keep the junk food and sweet treats to a minimum, too. Furthermore, if you’re prone to bloating, staying away from the common causes, such as sodas, alcohol, garlic, onions, and beans.
