10 Secrets That Will Get You Flat Abs

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

1. Posture Makes Perfect

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. Here are some posture-building moves to help you look like you've dropped five pounds.


2. Know the Formula
Getting flat abs in time for Summer 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 result.  


3. Fight the Fat

Ab 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.  


4. 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 fibre and other foods that help you beat the bloat. Swap your normal breakfast for a bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, for example; the fibre in the oatmeal will aid in digestion, and the antioxidants in blueberries may help you shed ab fat.

5.De-Stress

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 with these tips on how to de-stress.


6. Choose Full-Body Exercises

If you're looking for killer abs, don't waste your time focusing solely on crunches, since they tone just one muscle group and exacerbate bad posture, especially if you sit with a rounded spine at a desk all day. Instead focus on full-body exercises, like squat to overhead press. Not only do these types of exercises save time by working multiple body parts while engaging your core, they also do so without the posture-wrecking position of a rounded spine.  


7. Work All Layers
If you've only got one type of ab workout in your routine, your midsection is missing out. Working your core involves exercising all your abdominal layers, not just the top part that you can see. The inner muscles help pull in your belly for a slimming look, so be sure to work all of your ab muscles with this workout! 


8. Go MUFA
Foods high in monounsaturated fatty acid burn fat, especially of the belly variety. Go for MUFA-rich foods like avocados, almonds, olive oil, and pistachios, to help you keep your belly full.  


9. Practice Yoga
Give your muscles a good stretch while toning at the same time with yoga. This ab-defining yoga sequence will tone your tummy in no time. 


10. Eat Clean
Salt, sugar, and fatty foods can all lead to bloat, while fresh fruits and veg and whole grains do just the opposite. Pay attention to labels as you shop and train your taste buds to prefer fresh produce
