Nancy asks…

How can I get a flat stomach and soon?

I’m a senior in high school, a female, and I’m 5’7 and weigh 130 lbs.

I play varsity basketball, so it’s not like I’m out of shape. I eat well, too. I’d just like to tone up my body, but mainly my stomach.

So, how can I get a flat stomach? And how soon? What exercises should I be doing? If I do exercises daily, how long until I see results? I’m guessing a cardio and ab workout? Any info, tips, advice to getting a flat stomach?

Thanks so much.

Power Health Tips answers:

A diet to get a flat stomach can be highly effective. There are many ways to lose weight specifically in the mid section of the body.
•Eat healthier and cut down junk food, such as replacing sweets and chips with fruits.
•Eat smaller meals a day. To get a flat stomach you should eat many small meals throughout the day. Eat just enough until you feel full; don’t overeat and know which flat-belly foods actually work
•Eating raw foods are to avoid the loss of enzymes that result from cooking food, which also decreases its nutritional value. Raw food, unlike cooked and processed foods, takes longer to digest so you feel full longer some of the best raw foods are: Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Cucumbers Dark leaf lettuce, Onions and Tomatoes.
•Add stomach exercises to your workout. Simple exercises such as sit-ups, basic abdominal crunches and turn around abdominal crunches can contribute toward that curved flat stomach you need.
•Cardio exercises are best as they will heat up your core temperature and improve circulation, both of which will aid you in acquiring a flat stomach. You should aim for interval cardio training, such as alternating between sprinting and power walking. You can try sprinting for as long as you can. When you become too tired, you should walk. When you feel that you’ve caught your breath, sprint again. Do these alterations for a total of 20 minutes at a time.
