Having a flat stomach is the desire of many people, since people who have a flat and defined stomach are usually more respected and considered more attractive than people with obesity.
In addition, people with a flat stomach are usually healthy, with exceptions, since having a flat stomach requires having low fat levels, something that is healthier than being overweight.
The bad thing about trying to be defined is that many people don’t know well what they have to do, making basic beginner mistakes such as dieting too strict (rebound effect), not doing weights or killing abs, so it is necessary to know what you should and should not do.
Before I continue reading, I want you to be clear that having a flat stomach is not achieved overnight and that there are no miraculous exercises that will make you lose your belly overnight. You must commit to being disciplined and having a minimum work ethic if you want to achieve your goals in life.
Once you’re clear, you can continue reading, as I’m going to explain step by step how to have a flat stomach.
What do you need to have a flat stomach?
- Join a gym.

Instructions for having a flat stomach
- Take care of your diet:
Forget forever about miracle diets, the dukan method, absurd diets such as the peach, artichoke or apple diet, as they are diets that only serve to help you rebound and regain all the weight you lost. Instead, watch your diet and eat healthier, as it’s more than enough to lose weight and without bouncing. The first thing is to almost completely eliminate sugar, which is present in many foods such as ketchup, fried tomato, juices, soft drinks and of course sweets. The second thing is that you try to eat clean and natural foods, avoiding highly processed meats and binge eating, except once a week when you can treat yourself a little bit. Also avoid alcohol and other foods and habits that don’t bring you anything.
- High-intensity cardio: I
don’t advise you to do normal cardio, as it slows down your metabolism and can damage your knees and joints. Some examples of high-intensity cardio are burpees, which are a kind of jumping push-ups that should be done very quickly. It’s also good to jump rope several times, do sprints, and generally do high-intensity exercise for a short time. Do it three times a week and you’ll notice how you burn more and more fat.
- Weight-bearing exercises:
Many people make the mistake of not doing weights when it comes to defining, something that in my opinion is a complete mistake, since weights make you have much more muscle mass, which is capable of accelerating your metabolism, thus getting to lose weight more quickly by eating more food. Do a bodybuilding exercise routine with free weights (whether you’re a boy or a girl) and ask your personal trainer to give you a proper exercise chart. In addition, thanks to this, you will achieve better aesthetics and greater physical condition in terms of both strength and power.
Doing sit-ups does not make you have a flat stomach, however, it makes you have a more attractive and marked abdomen when fat is lost, therefore doing sit-ups and not doing the rest of the tips in the article does not work, because fat hides the work, but doing it all together helps to improve aesthetics. Work all types of abs infrequently, without killing yourself with repetitions and working on performing a good technique in the execution.
Tips for a Flat Stomach
- Don’t be in a hurry: Try to do this in a slow and calm way, losing little weight little by little and having a lot of patience. If you kill yourself to do sports and lose quickly, you will recover the weight obtained later, because you will burn muscle mass achieving and therefore, you will not have the desired metabolism and burn less and less fat. Try not to get too obsessed with the result, as everything will come if you have patience and tenacity in your goals.
