If you've decided that you're ready to get rid of that extra layer around your stomach, and you need to do it fast, it's time to get to work. Whether you want to show off your toned abs at the beach or you're just tired of the way your stomach looks, the following steps will help you to work your way toward the flat stomach you've always wanted.
Make major changes to your diet. Substitute fruits and veggies for the processed, fatty foods you may have been eating. Cut out the sugar in your diet and eat whole grains, such as whole wheat bread and brown rice instead of white bread or white rice.
Rev it up with some cardio three to four times a week or more if you're looking for even quicker results. Go for a long jog, go swimming, take an aerobics class or play a game of basketball with your friends to get your heart rate up and start shedding that fat.
Do crunches and sit-ups every day to begin strengthening your abdominal muscles. Increase the amount and intensity of repetitions as you progress.
Sign up for a Pilates or yoga class nearby and go regularly. These classes will help you to further strengthen your abdominals.
Ask a friend to work out with you so that you'll work out more often, and so that you can hold each other accountable.
