How To Get A Flat Stomach (The Ultimate Guide)

If you’re looking for help on how to get a flat stomach, you’ve come to the right place.

Having a flat lean stomach is something almost everyone wants.

It’s not just girls either who are after a flat stomach, but guys as well.

Guys refer to it as six pack abs while girls label it flat abs or a flat stomach.

Essential they’re both describing the same thing.

Let’s be honest, abs that are flat, lean, and fit-looking are sexy.

That’s often the reason we want a flat stomach to begin with.

Because it makes us feel sexier, confident, more attractive.

Even if it’s just for ourselves.

But of course it’s also awesome getting to show them off in a new outfit, on vacation, at the beach, or behind closed doors.

Everyone wants a flat stomach.

But how do you get one?

What exactly do you need to do?

How and what do you need to eat?

What exercises do you need to do?

And how long before you see results?

These are all questions that I will answer for you here and let you know exactly what you must do to get a flat stomach.

No more guessing game, no more confusing food charts and menus, no more complicated exercises, and false expectations.

I will provide you will all you need to know here to get a flat stomach.

Let’s get to work.

 

Getting Rid of Body Fat (The Belly)

When it comes to getting a flat stomach, the number that’s most important for you to focus on isn’t your weight, it’s your body fat.

What’s the difference?

If you starved yourself for a week and had nothing but water, yes you’d lose weight but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve lost body fat.

The reason why isn’t important to focus on decreasing your body fat and not just the number on the scale is because we want the weight you’re losing to be the result of decreased body fat.

If you starve yourself you’ll be losing water and muscle weight, not body fat.

So even if you did drop 20 or more pounds, that doesn’t guarantee you a flat stomach.

It may feel a little flatter but it won’t be the flat stomach you’re wanting.

 

Measure Your Body Fat

The best way to track your body fat is to use a scale that measures body fat, otherwise called an electrical impedance scale.

This is the one I recommend …. it’s good quality, accurate, and not too pricey.

If you don’t have the means of buying one of these scales, here’s a little trick you can use to get your body fat tested at a local gym.

Call them up and let them know you’re considering buying a gym membership and ask for a free day or week membership pass to get a feel for it before you commit to a membership.

Many, if not all, gyms offer this complimentary day or week pass.

When you get it, call ahead the next day and ask if there will be a personal trainer available for you to meet with because you want to have your body fat assessment done.

Nine times out of ten they’ll schedule you with someone to have that done absolutely free of charge.

Even if there is a charge, it’s usually no more than $5-$10.

 

How Often Should You Check Your Body Fat?

Once you’ve gotten got body fat assessment done, it’s best to wait a minimum of 4 weeks (preferably 6 weeks) since unlike weight that fluctuates day to day, body fat comes off slower.

Real body fat, the stubborn belly fat that seems to never want to go away… that’s the body fat you must get rid of to get a flat stomach.

Focus on decreasing your body fat number and not just your weight.

You can still use a scale to track your weight if you want as long as you 1) remember that decreasing body fat is what will get you a flat stomach and 2) only weight in every 30 days.

 

What Body Fat Percentage Will Get You A Flat Stomach?

You’ll find lots of charts floating around the internet as far as where you should be from a weight standpoint, or what your BMI should be based on your height and weight.

This isn’t what we’ll be focusing on to get you a flat stomach.

Here are the exact body fat numbers below to focus on that will get you a flat stomach:

 

 

For women, the body fat percentage to focus on to get a flat and lean stomach is between 13% and 16% body fat.

For men, the body fat percentage to focus on to get a flat and lean stomach is between 5% and 8% body fat.

It’s completely possible to still get a flat stomach with higher percentages although getting your percentage within the ranges I’m suggesting here will assure you get a flat AND lean stomach.

This is me in the picture above a few years ago at the age of 39 competing in my first men physique competition.

I managed to get my body fat down to 5.5% and this was the result and what it looked like.

This is also me in the picture below at 8.8% body fat… I still have a flat stomach, just not as lean of a six pack that I had at 5.5%.

 

I share this with you to show you that it’s completely possible to get a flat stomach at a bit higher body fat percentage.

Not that much higher but a few percentages higher for sure.

It’s up to you how lean you want your flat stomach to be.

 

Common Myths About How To Get A Flat Stomach

Before we dive into exactly what you must do to get a flat stomach, let’s quickly address what doesn’t work in the event you’ve either tried it or are considering trying a different way.

You cannot get a flat and lean stomach in just 7-14 days… anything of anyone who tells you otherwise is lying to you.

How and what you eat equates to 80% of your results, everything else makes up the last 20%.

Body wraps (rolling my eyes) do not work.

Anything that sounds to good to be true to get a flat stomach is to good to be true.

If it were that easy, everyone would be walking around with incredible looking abs.

Doing 500 sit-ups a day won’t get you a flat stomach.

It’ll get you a hernia.

It’s impossible, yes impossible, to spot train.

There’s one way and one way only to get a flat lean stomach and that’s exactly what I’ll be covering with you here.

Let’s get to it.

 

The 4 Steps Necessary To Get A Flat Stomach

1) Change What You Believe

Before you get started and do anything, it’s an absolute MUST that you address any limiting beliefs you may have around getting a flat stomach.

“I’ve tried before and failed so I’ll probably fail again.”

“It won’t work for me.”

“I don’t have that type of body.”

“I’ve had kids so it’s impossible for me to have a flat stomach.”

“I want it but just don’t think it’s possible.”

Any one of these limiting beliefs or anything along these lines will keep you from successfully getting a flat stomach if you don’t address these limiting beliefs from the start.

If these are your beliefs, you’ll sabotage your efforts at all costs to make sure you remain consistent with what you believe.

Crazy right?

Crazy but true.

It’s human nature, it’s Psychology 101.

“We act in accordance to what or who we believe ourselves to be.”

If you think getting a flat stomach is impossible, then it will be impossible and you’ll never have a flat stomach because your thoughts and beliefs won’t allow it.

If however you change your beliefs to, “it’s going to be a challenge but I will stay committed and consistent to my exercise and nutrition plan and give it time”, then it will happen.”

Change your thoughts and beliefs and you’ll change your outcome.

Take a minute right now to write down what your limiting beliefs are around getting a flat stomach.

Once you’ve done that, replace these limiting beliefs with new empowering beliefs that support you getting a flat lean stomach.

Skip this step and you don’t stand a chance at getting a flat stomach.

 

2) Create A Flat Stomach S.M.A.R.T. Goal

What’s a S.M.A.R.T. goal?

S.M.A.R.T. goal is a goal that’s Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, & Time-Bound.

When you turn your goal of getting a flat stomach into a S.M.A.R.T. goal, you increase your chances of successfully getting a flat stomach big-time.

Why is that?

By creating a flat stomach S.M.A.R.T. goal, you are clearly defining exactly what it is you want, why you want it, how you’re going to get there, and when.

Clarity is power.

The more clear you are on your flat stomach goal, the better chance you give yourself of making it happen because you take the guessing game out of what must be done, how, why, and by when.

You’re giving yourself a plan, a script, a blueprint to follow so that all you have to do it follow it consistently and you will achieve your goal of getting a flat stomach.

Take a minute now and create your flat stomach S.M.A.R.T. goal.

Here, I’ll help you.

 

SPECIFIC

Well you pretty much already have the first S.M.A.R.T. goal (Specific) identified which is, “get a flat stomach”.

That IS specific (a flat stomach) versus saying, “I just want to be healthy”.

No, you want a flat stomach so say it, own it, confess to it, and say exactly what you want.

Clarity is power remember?

I WANT A FLAT STOMACH!

There you go!

 

MEASURABLE

Next up is Measurable.

You can use the body fat chart above that I provided you with to decide what body fat range you must be in to get a flat stomach.

Measure your progress by checking your body fat percentage every 4-6 weeks.

This is important since the numbers don’t lie and will tell you if you’re making progress or not.

If you are, great! If not, great as well since it gives you an accurate assessment of your body fat and therefore the opportunity to make the changes necessary to get your body fat to decrease.

The more committed, focused, and disciplined you remain with your nutrition and exercise plan, the quicker you’ll achieve the body fat percentage necessary for you to get a flat stomach.

The great news here is, the more effort you put in, the faster you’ll get there.

You are 100% in control of your flat stomach results.

Nothing or no one else is.

 

ATTAINABLE

Attainable refers to your ability to make it happen.

For example, you have the ability to move.

You’re capable of eating foods that are nutritious and healthy for you.

You’re not allergic to drinking water ( at least I hope not).

Unless you’re unable to do any of these things, getting a flat stomach is 100% attainable.

So, this section requires you to essentially admit to yourself you have what it takes to make it happen, to achieve your goal of getting a flat lean stomach.

 

RELEVANT

Relevant refers to why you want a flat stomach, why it’s important to you.

In other words, your “whys” for wanting to achieve this goal. The deep rooted reasons you want a flat stomach.

It’s these reasons that’ll keep you focused, motivated, & committed to getting a flat stomach.

In order to identify your “whys”, it takes cutting through all of the surface reasons such as “I just want to feel good” or “I need to do this” or “I just want to be healthy”.

These types of “whys” won’t inspire you to keep going.

It takes asking yourself “why” several times before you come up with the real reasons why you want this goal.

Examples of deep rooted reasons for wanting a flat stomach could be, “I want to feel confidence in my own skin and in the clothes I wear” or “I want to feel sexy and proud of who I see in the mirror.”

There’s nothing wrong or vain in wanting to look good, sexy, hot… call it what you will.

Who doesn’t want to look their best?

What are your deep rooted “whys”? Write them all down.

 

TIME-BOUND

Set a specific date by which you will have a flat stomach.

When you put a time frame on it, you’re telling yourself you’re serious, making it a real goal, and not just a nice-to-have goal either where if it happens, great…  and if not, oh-well.

Maybe you have an upcoming birthday, anniversary, or event that you can set at your time-bound date when you will have achieved your goal of getting a flat stomach.

Have you heard of Parkinson’s law?

If you haven’t, it states that “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”.

In other words, if you don’t set a deadline getting a flat stomach, it’ll never happen since the work necessary to achieve it will continue to expand and fill the time available for its completion.

I suggest giving yourself no less than 2 months to achieve your flat stomach goal since as we discussed earlier, decreasing body fat (belly fat) takes longer than losing pounds on the scale.

 

3) Flat Stomach Strategy

Now that you’ve created new powerful beliefs of how you can and will get a flat stomach as well as your flat stomach S.M.A.R.T. goal, you’re now ready to dive into your flat stomach strategy.

What you must do and focus on the most in order to achieve a flat stomach.

There are four specific areas:

  • How & What You Eat
  • Exercise
  • Drinking Water
  • Sleeping

 

It’s important that you look at these four areas as a four number combination lock.

All four numbers are required for the lock to open.

Same goes for getting a flat stomach.

You must focus on all of these areas regularly & consistently to get a flat lean stomach.

If you do great with water, exercise, and sleep, and not go great on how & what you eat, you will not get a flat stomach.

If you do great with how & what you eat, Sleep, and exercise, and not so great with water, you will not get a flat stomach.

All four are equally important… miss one and the lock will not open, no flat stomach.

Let’s dive into each one of these.

 

How & What To Eat

If you’ve tried to get a flat stomach in the past with no success, it may not be because you didn’t try or work hard enough.

It may be that the foods you were eating failed you.

I see it happen all the time too because of the vast amounts of misguided information that’s available online, on television, in magazines, and on grocery store shelves.

Foods that are labeled low fat & low carb does not mean they’re healthy.

If you want to get a flat lean stomach, stay away from foods labeled “low fat” or “low carb”.

You’ll be more successful eating healthy amounts of natural fats and carbs than foods that have been altered and modified to make them “low fat” or “low carb.

It’s also important to understand the role carbohydrates, proteins and fats play in our body when it comes to losing body fat and leaning up.

 

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates provide the body with the energy it needs and are a good source of many vitamins and minerals. The best carbohydrates are those that contain a lot of fiber, like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

These types of carbohydrates give you the most nutrients along with a sense of fullness.

All you’re doing when you eliminate carbs or eat foods labeled “low carbs” is losing water weight as your body breaks down the stored carbohydrates.

As soon as you start eating carbohydrates again, your body replenishes your carbohydrate stores and your weight comes right back.

Carbs give your body the energy it needs to burn off body fat necessary to get a flat stomach.

 

Proteins

Protein is essential for making sure your body is burning off fat and not muscle, a must when your goal is to have a flat stomach.

Your body uses the amino acids found in protein to build lean muscle and help it recover after a workout. It will not only make your stomach flat and abs leaner, but it helps to keep your metabolism higher and burning more calories throughout the day.

Good protein sources such as eggs, chicken, and salmon takes the body more work to digest which means you burn more calories processing them.

They also take longer to leave your stomach so you feel a sense of fullness for a longer amount of time.

 

Fats

Lowering fat consumption DOES NOT mean you’ll lose body fat. Eating fats displaces eating carbs meaning, when you eat more fats you eat less carbs.

Why is that important?

Insulin, when released by your body in proportion to the amount of carbohydrates you eat, is what dictates where nutrients can go.

Lowering your overall insulin levels by reducing your carb intake allows your body to more readily access fat stores for energy while also allowing fat to enter your muscles for fuel and energy.

Eating the right type of fats is essential when it comes to losing body fat and getting a flat leaner stomach.

You’ll sometimes hear these three (carbohydrates, protein, and fats) referred to as macros. Don’t be confused by that terminology. These three are considered your macros.

 

Eat These 12 Foods For A Flat & Leaner Stomach

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of the best sources of carbs to eat first thing in the morning. Not the instant kind either that’s filled with sugar and other additives.

A favorite of mine is Bob’s Red Mill 100% whole grain steel cut oats.

Eggs

Eggs provide a natural source of protein in addition to other valuable vitamins such as vitamin D, calcium, and folate . Eat real eggs versus egg beaters that are out of a carton. Natural food versus processed. Natural wins every time.

If you’re worried about cholesterol by eating real whole eggs, do what I do and make an omelette made up of 1-2 whole eggs and 1-2 eggs without the yolks.

Olive Oil

Olive oil, which is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (all that means is it’s a good fat), is my go-to fat resource whenever I cook, whether it’s with scrambling my eggs or adding a tablespoon to my salad.

Olive oil is an excellent and healthy source of good fat necessary for losing body fat and getting a flat lean stomach.

Bananas

Bananas are considered a carbohydrate containing natural vitamins and minerals, especially potassium.

A banana a day keeps the cramping away.

Blueberries

Blueberries are also considered carbohydrates with lots of different natural vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants, which play a vital role in muscle recovery for leaner muscles.

Any type of berry such as blackberries and raspberries are also effective.

Almonds

Almonds are a great go-to snack that are natural and pack a nice punch of both good protein and fat.

A handful (15-20) unsalted almonds is the perfect amount.

Spinach

Spinach is obviously a vegetable and falls into the carbohydrate category and is considered a “super food” loaded with tons of nutrients and a low calorie count.

It provides the body with a valuable source of protein and iron.

Avocados

Avocados are a nutrient-dense food and a great source of good fat. They’re also rich in potassium, the B vitamins, amino acids and fiber.

Avocados are also considered a flat belly food because of their ability to prevent blood sugar spikes in your body that triggers the storage of excess calories as fat, particularly around your midsection.

Broccoli

In addition to aiding your body with losing fat and leaning up your abs, the health benefits of broccoli is quite extensive.

It contains high levels of fiber and is a rich source of vitamin-C, vitamin A, iron, vitamin K, B-complex vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and many other excellent and hard to pronounce nutrients. 🙂

Chicken

Chicken consists of natural high-quality protein with a relatively low amount of fat per serving and is my absolute go-to when it comes to protein.

It’s also a good source of niacin (vitamin B3), which aids in metabolism; vitamin B6, important for blood sugar level maintenance; and biotin (vitamin B7), which helps cell growth.

What do all these different mineral and vitamins mean?…. Less fat, more muscle, flatter belly.

Salmon

Salmon is a nutrient dense fish that’s also an excellent source of high-quality protein.

Other valuable vitamins and minerals it provides to aid in losing fat fat is potassium, selenium and vitamin B12. It also contains awesome amounts of omega-3 fatty acids (think fish oil).

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are my favorite. They’re an inexpensive and naturally sweet-tasting carbohydrate that provide numerous health benefits.

Their natural sugars are slowly released into your bloodstream helping to provide you with a balanced and regular source of energy, without blood sugar spikes linked to weight gain.

These are my 12 go-to foods for getting a flat lean stomach.

They’re all natural and nutritious foods that are tasty and full of flavor, not fake processed “low fat” or “low carb” foods that have little to no nutritional value whatsoever to help decrease body fat and get a flat stomach.

If you’re looking to lose body fat in order to have a flat leaner stomach, it all starts with how and what you eat.

 

Exercise

Next up for your Flat Stomach Strategy is exercise.

Some call it weight training some call it fitness training, these mean the same thing.

Here’s what you’ve probably been told…

Do tons of abdominal exercises and crunches every day if you want a flat lean stomach.

Uh… no.

You can do all the ab exercises you want, that’s not what’s going to decrease your body fat and give you that flat stomach you want.

Spot training, exercising one specific body part over and over with the hopes of that specific area getting tighter, leaner, flatter, isn’t possible.

Stronger yes.

Tighter, leaner, flatter… not a chance.

The only way that happens is through fully exercising the body.

 

 

Quick Confession:

It wasn’t until just a few years ago that I started to actually do ab specific exercises and adding them to my fitness routine.

I was mostly just doing full body workouts that engaged my abs but I wasn’t sitting there doing 100 or more crunches at a time.

Still, I was able to maintain a lean stomach as you can see in this picture here.

How’s that even possible?

Because it’s not a matter of doing 500 crunches a day… you can’t spot train remember?

 

 

It’s about exercising the entire body, getting in full workouts multiple times per week.

Because in doing so, you begin to create leaner muscle (not to be confused with large muscles).

Leaner yes, bigger no.

When you do full body workouts and lean up all of your muscles, they are then all able to work for you to help burn more body fat off your body, including your belly.

And not just when you’re exercising either, but throughout the entire day.

That’s why exercise is so important to your Flat Stomach Strategy because it’ll help burn off your body fat consistently and effectively and get you to your flat stomach goal quicker.

Here’s some more good news too… it’s this same lean muscle that’ll make it easier for you to maintain your flat stomach when you get it.

So what exercises should you be doing for a good full body workout?

Depending on your fitness level, here are 3 different 15 minute workouts you can use.

All 3 of these workouts require no equipment and can be done anywhere.

15 Minute Beginner Workout

15 Minute Intermediate Workout

15 Minute Advanced Workout

To get your muscles leaner faster so that you’re burning off your belly fat faster and getting your flat stomach sooner than later, make sure you’re exercising 4 times per week.

Whether you’re using these workouts I’ve provided you with here or your own workouts.

It’s a must that you exercise 4 times per week.

Cardio, walking, gardening, swimming, biking, getting in 10K steps – these are all great although they do not count for one of these 4 days.

These 4 days must be fitness training days.

To accelerate your results, do cardio 3 times per week in addition to your 4 days of fitness training.

What is considered cardio?

Any exercise or activity that has your heart rate above 100 beats per minute for a minimum of 30 minutes or longer.

Whether that’s speed walking, jogging, running, elliptical, biking, swimming, whatever it may be.

Heart rate above 100 beats per minute for a minimum of 30 minutes.

While this isn’t a requirement for your Flat Stomach Strategy, if you do decide to add in a cardio, it will certainly contribute to your flat stomach goal.

 

Drinking Water

What’s the biggie with drinking water?

How does drinking enough water daily contribute to losing losing body fat and getting a flat lean stomach?

Water speeds up your metabolism which helps you lose body and belly fat faster.

It also helps to energize muscles by helping them maintain the proper balance of fluids necessary in order to avoid dehydration that contributes to muscle soreness and fatigue.

Bottled water is fine although tap water (unless you’re in Mexico) work just fine.

So how much water should you be drinking daily?

Use the chart below to identify the right amount of water for you to focus on & commit to drinking daily based on your weight.

 

 

If you’re like me and struggle with drinking water daily, mostly because I think it’s boring and a pain in the butt to remember to drink throughout the day, the below video will help you.

 

 

Here’s the water bottle I recommend that’s durable & will help keep your water cold.

Here’s the muscle recovery power that I use to give my water flavor.

 

Sleep

Making sure you’re getting enough sleep every night it critical to getting a flat lean stomach.

This is the one strategy that is often missed and the reason why so many people strive for a flat stomach but aren’t able to achieve it.

Because they’re not getting the right amount of sleep per night.

How much sleep should you be getting?

Here’s a sleep guide below to help you determine if you’re getting enough sleep in order to get a flat lean stomach.

 

 

Eating right and exercising regularly will help you burn off body and belly fat, but only if you’re getting enough sleep.

A 6-year study done by Canadian researchers found that adults who averaged just 5 or 6 hours of sleep per night were 35% more likely to gain 10-plus pounds.

In addition to that, they were also nearly 60% heavier around the middle section than those who slept 7 to 8 hours.

Moral of this study?…. If you want a flat stomach, make sure you’re getting enough sleep.

 

Staying Motivated

You now have empowering beliefs in place that have you believing you can and will get a flat stomach.

You have clearly defined your Flat Stomach S.M.A.R.T. goal.

You also have a clear strategy to follow that’ll get you a flat stomach.

Now it’s all about staying motivated & committed to your flat stomach strategy.

It’s the most important and challenging part of it all and why so many fail to achieve a flat stomach.

Master this last component and you’ll once and for all have the flat stomach you’ve been obsessing over for as long as you can remember.

“It’s been a week, why am I not seeing results yet?”

Seriously?

If you’re expecting results after just one week, that isn’t called high expectations, it’s called being delusional.

Sticking to the plan for an entire week is awesome and a huge success, no question about it.

And when you’re giving your all, more than you ever have, staying committed and disciplined, and making the sacrifices necessary to get a flat stomach, a week can seem like forever.

However, it is what it is – only one week.

And this is where the challenge lies, staying motivated, committed, and disciplined to go the distance and get that flat stomach you want and not getting discouraged along the way.

Take a look at the image below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This pretty much represents what people initially think when it comes to getting a flat stomach.

“I want a flat stomach”, I’ll start to eat ‘better‘, exercise some more, do lots of crunches and in a few weeks I’ll have a lean flat stomach and post pictures of it all over Instagram.”

If it were only that easy.

Well let me rephrase that…

The equation (what to do) to have a flat stomach IS easy.

In fact, you already have that – you know exactly what to do right now to get a flat stomach.

I’ve just provided you with all of it here.

It’s going the distance however, that’s the most challenging part of it all.

Friends going out for happy hour and bar food?

You must stay disciplined to your flat stomach strategy.

Feeling fidgety, stressed, or bored?

You must abstain from snacking as you normally would do.

Going out to eat?

You must stick with a healthy salad versus the pasta and bread.

Attending a party, conference, or client meeting?

You must stick to your flat stomach strategy versus giving into all the foods and alcohol available that strikes FOMO (fear of missing out) in you.

Staying motivated and committed is the secret to getting a flat stomach.

So how do you do it?

How do you stay motivated and committed with all these conditions and temptations along the way?

First it’s realizing that motivation, commitment, even discipline isn’t something you “feel”.

None of these are a feeling… a mistake so many people make.

“If I just felt more motivated I would make it happen.”

Motivation is a choice, not a feeling.

A choice to do what must be done, day after day, week after week, month after month to get your body to make the changes necessary (burn body fat) to give you the flat stomach you want.

So, number one – understand that motivation is NOT a feeling.

Motivation is a choice.

Choose to stay motivated.

Choose to focus on your new empowering beliefs.

Choose to focus on your flat stomach S.M.A.R.T. goal.

Choose to stay committed to your flat stomach strategy.

If you’re waiting for a feeling to come over you, you’ll be waiting forever.

Choose to stay motivated.

The way to do this is to identify what gets you motivated or what I call, into your “Champions Mindset“.

We all have something that gets up excited, fired up, and in the kind of mindset where we feel like we can do anything.

This is what I call your Champions Mindset.

It’s important that you identify what that is for you and then tap into it daily to keep you motivated versus waiting for the feeling of motivation to come over you.

That only way that’s going to happen is by YOU making it happen.

But how?

By taking 5 minutes at the beginning of every day to get into your Champions Mindset.

Whether it’s exercise, listening to music that gets you going, meditating, looking at pictures of what you want to look like, or watching motivating videos.

Whatever gets you going, fired up and excited, tap into that energy at the beginning of every day because when you do, you’re setting yourself up for a successful day ahead.

Successful in terms of following through and doing all that’s necessary for you to do to create the flat stomach your’re after and working hard for.

Next up, be very careful with the language you use along the way.

And I don’t mean foul language either – use all the f-bombs you want in the process.

What I’m referring to here is damaging and destructive language such as, “this is hard, impossible, never going to happen.”

Not hard, challenging.

Not impossible, possible.

It’s never going to happen, it can and WILL happen.

Along the way to creating your flat stomach, you can be sure you’re going to have a slew of different emotions come over you that’ll challenge your commitment to keep going.

95% will give up.

Another 3% will continue but won’t give it their all and so nothing will change.

Less than 2% will work, fight, push, cry.. they’ll do whatever it takes to stay motivated, committed, and disciplined to get the flat stomach they so badly want.

These 2% will remain relentless in their pursuit of that flat stomach.

And because of their relentless efforts and stopping at nothing to achieve what they so badly want, they will achieve what every one of us wants but only less than 2% achieve…. a flat stomach.

Make the choice to stay motivated, committed, focused, and disciplined.

Make the choice to use language that will inspire and encourage you to keep going.

Do this daily, regularly, and consistently and you will not only find yourself amongst an elite group, the less than 2% group, but you’ll also find yourself with the flat lean stomach you’ve always wanted but never thought was possible.

It goes without saying that not only will you be rewarded with a flat and lean sexy new stomach, but also a new sense of confidence.

Not just physically either (although it is a great feeling), but also mentally knowing there’s NOTHING you can’t create for yourself when you set your mind to it.

 

Flat Stomach Checklist

You’ve got all you need right here to create that flat stomach you’ve been thinking about forever.

The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll get there.

Here’s an easy checklist to follow to make sure you’re following through on all that’s necessary to get you that flat stomach:

1) Body Fat Assessment (Have this done ASAP to identify what your body fat % is and where it must be for you to have a flat stomach)

 

2) Change What You Believe (Change “I can’t do this, it’s not possible” to “I WILL do this, and it IS possible”)

 

3) Create A Flat Stomach S.M.A.R.T. Goal (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound)

 

4) Focus on your Flat Stomach Strategy (How & What You Eat, Exercise, Drinking Water, Sleeping)

 

5) Stay Motivated (Motivation is a choice – get into your Champions Mindset daily and use language that’ll encourage and support your efforts)

 

Additional Suggestions…

6) Take Before Pictures (Trust me, you’re going to want these to share your incredible progress with others when you get your flat stomach)

 

7) Public Announcement (Tell as many people as possible about your flat stomach commitment for accountability & support purposes)

 

8) Work Hard, Be Patient, Repeat (Give it your absolute all for 8 weeks, no excuses, and you will have a flat stomach)
