Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question is actually sent in to me in different forms quite often and it's regarding getting a flat stomach or tummy.
How do I flatten my stomach? Are there specific ab exercises I should be doing?
Stomach flattening, or any other body part flattening, lengthening or shortening is impossible through natural means. The possibility of this is a myth perpetuated by the fitness industry and their marketing schemes to make money.
Fat is spread throughout your body and tends to settle in certain areas that are larger storage sites than others, such as the butt, thighs, and stomach. When you have a properly designed program, these areas appear to “flatten”, but it’s only the fact that overall body fat is being reduced and is more likely noticed in these storage sites.
So if you want to “flatten” your stomach, you have to reduce your body fat percentage through a properly designed program like the Fat X diet and exercise program. This reduction in body fat percentage will give the appearance that you stomach is becoming flatter.
