To get a flatter stomach in a week without exercise…

Get rid of your bloated stomach & any excess water weight by…

1. Drinking more water

I know it sounds odd but when you don't drink water your body actually retains water (making you look fatter) and also…

Drinking more water helps prevents stomach bloating by aiding digestion, relieving constipation & gas so try to drink at least 1 liter (33.8 ounces) of water a day for a flatter stomach plus Go here to see other ways water burns fat and…

Use this simple calculator to see how much water you need to drink each day to get a flatter stomach…

You need to drink ounces of water each day to get a flatter stomach
I had a client who lost 20 pounds in 1 week after adding JUST water to his diet. He was so bloated, his rings did not fit him, stomach was large, and socks would indent his lower legs when he removed them. Have you ever felt bloated, hands and feet puffy, belly extended - well this is your body holding onto water. Stew Smith, Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS)

2. Limit your salt or sodium intake

The more salt or sodium that you eat = the more water your body will hold onto making your stomach look fat & bloated so you got 2 options…

  1. You can drink more water to flush out the excess water weight caused by the excess salt in your diet and/or…
  2. You can eat less than 2500 mg of sodium a day to prevent bloating and excess water weight gain - See how to lose 5 lbs in 2 days for more info on how to quickly lose excess water weight by drinking more water & limiting salt intake

3. Eat a balanced diet of Carbs, Proteins and Fats because…

4. Eat smaller meals

Instead of you eating 3 BIG meals that'll put lots of stress on your digestive system which'll lead to your stomach bloating…

It's best for you to eat 4-to-6 smaller meals to prevent getting a bloated stomach and if you don't have time to eat 4-to-6 smaller meals…

Then you need to go for a 15+ minute walk after your big meal to speed up digestion to prevent your stomach from getting bloated.

5. Stop drinking soda!

Sodas and any other carbonated drinks can easily make your stomach bloated because the carbon dioxide from those drinks creates gas in your stomach forcing your stomach to expand or get bloated - See how to stop drinking soda here

6. Avoid artificial sweeteners

Artificial sweaters cannot be easily broken down by your body and this causes gas which leads to bloating so that means you need to watch out for diet sodas, sugarless gums, or any other so called "sugar-free" foods and if you must use artificial sweeteners…

Try to limit your use of artificial sweeteners to less than 3 servings a day but…

Artificial sweeteners like mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol and other sugar alcohols are the main ones you want to avoid to reduce bloating so you can get a flatter stomach.

7. Don't do things that cause you to swallow too much air

When you swallow too much air… the air becomes trapped in your stomach and this causes gas which leads to bloating and you can prevent this from happening by…

8. Do a colon cleanse

See how to lose 20 pounds in 30 days for more info but due to your bad eating habits… You may have 10+ pounds of waste trapped in your colon that can easily be flushed out of your stomach making it flatter with the help of a colon cleansing program like the Ultimate Colon Cleanse program

More ways to quickly get a flatter stomach without exercise…

  1. Add these diuretic foods to your diet to help flush out excess water weight.
  2. Use supplements like Beano or Phazyme to get rid of gas & bloating.
  3. Use anti-bloating foods & drinks for a flatter stomach like Fennel Tea, Peppermint Herbal Tea, Chamomile Tea, ginger, pineapple, papaya, parsley, and yogurts containing probiotics (the good bacteria) to reduce bloating.
  4. Take digestive enzymes like lipase, protease, and/or amylase with each meal to get rid of bloating - Source Naturals Essential Digestive Enzymes is a good supplement that'll help get rid of bloating.
  5. You can soak yourself in a tub of warm water for about 15 minutes to help you lose excess water weight for a flatter stomach and/or…
  6. You can use a steam room or sauna for 15 minutes to make you sweat to flush out excess water weight and of course…
  7. You can exercise very intensely to sweat out excess water weight, reduce bloating and burn belly fat for the quickest way to get a flat stomach but… since this article is called "How To get a flatter stomach in a week without exercise…" you don't have to do that.

I have had a great many trial and tribulations in my life and as a result I have over ate and did not exercise. I have lost 100 pounds on my own but don't seem to be able to lose any more. I am 5'8 and currently weigh 330 pounds. At this point I am discouraged and do not know why I cannot lose anymore weight. I have changed the amount of calorie intake and changed up my exercises but nothing seems to help. Soon I will be starting a new career as a special education teacher and want to be in better shape than I currently am. Any ideas how to get off this plateau?

I'm on a new medicine (not for weight lose) that is completely supressing my appetite, and I'd also like to start exercising/running and have about 30 more lbs to loose. Should I wait and see about my weight lose before I start adding my exercise? I already lost about 12 lbs just on the pill, and I started running for about a week, and my body is completely changing and I'm noticing it toning up and getting stronger. But do I want to wait til I'm the 30 lbs smaller and then tone it? Wont it be harder to loose the weight if I'm toning it now? I want my body small and toned!! Thanks for your help!

January 06, 2014

Adrian Bryant

no you can start toning now

January 07, 2014

Jeff Barnett

Does the total amount of water you drink include other liquids you consume such as coffee & green tea?? or is it you should be drinking just that much in pure water?

December 20, 2013

Adrian Bryant

just water

December 20, 2013


You should drink enough water by it self but you could drink tea in between

March 04, 2014

Hi, I'm Casseus...a 34 yr old female. I'm on day 8 of my clean eating, and no sweets, no processed foods or sugars... The scale says I gained 6 lbs. I jog 1 mile everyday. I'm really really discouraged. Any tips?

September 08, 2013

Adrian Bryant

doesn't matter what you eat so how many total calories did you eat during this time and did you exercise

September 08, 2013


I eat 1100 to 1200 calories a day, I drink 1.5 gallons of water a day, I jog 1 mile everyday and get 4 mins of abs in. I must also add that this evening when I weighed myself I was down 6 lbs. Thank you for responding. You've got a #1 Fan!

September 10, 2013

Adrian Bryant

are you weighing everyday? if so then stop doing that b/c it will drive you crazy. only check 1-to-2 times per month and better yet use a mirror to track progress

September 10, 2013


I keep adding and adding weight. At a rate of about 15 kilos a year! The bloating gets worse and worse. I am hypothyroid and a 10 year cancer survivor who did chemo, radio etc. I am now 45 and have the body of someone 30 years older! I weigh almost 96kilos !! My doc just tells me to exercise and really does not believe me. I eat two small meals a day and drink a lot of water. I keep getting injured when I exercise too. The latest is a torn calf muscle! Have had bulging spine disc, inflamed back, twisted ankles, swollen knees. I feel at this rate I am going to end up unable to walk soon.

August 09, 2013


Your not eating enough....You are in starvation mode. Which means everything you eat your body converts to fat. You need 3 square meals... Lots of protein and healthy fats.k
You need to be eating 1600 kcals a day and if your working out 3 days a should be...also get away from the cardio usit after your workout no more than 10 mins. More than that is pointless. Lift heavy...if your constantly getting hurt than your form is really bad. Practice at home to perfect your form

September 06, 2013


Hi my name is felisha, I am 24 years old . I'm skinny and i weight about 120/125 but I have a baby gut.

Hello I started the diet plan but had carrots and cucumbers first , 1 cup each and with that and grilled chicken Breast and plain sweet potatoe 1/2 cup took me 1 hour to eat is that ok? Cals for this meal only 262??

July 22, 2013

Adrian Bryant

if you are doing this plan here then that is ok

July 24, 2013


Hey Adrian, regarding salt/sodium, I was wondering something health related. Does the healthy sodium intake(around 2000 mg I guess) stay the same regardless if a person drinks a lot of water? Does a person that drinks a high amount of water daily would need take to take more sodium to satisfy the body needs?

July 19, 2013

Adrian Bryant

probably as far as health is concerned but when dealing with weight loss then yes... a heavy water drinker can get away with more salt without gaining water weight

July 20, 2013


Hi Adrian,

I am having a really hard time losing weight. I have improved my diet to strictly salads, oat meal and seafood. I don't drink anything but water and occasionally tea w/o any added sugar or creamer. I exercise 4 to 5 days a week. I do kick boxing by Jillian michaels, yoga and dancing just to mix it up a bit. I only snack on fruits and nuts. It's so frustrated that I am still at the same weight. I am 5'5 at 138 lbs. that's the heaviest I have ever been, I actually have a gutt and my clothes no longer fit. I have been coming to your site for over 4 years now and am very familiar with the calorie count, exercises and diet plans. What am I doing wrong? Please help. I never had this problem before, I usually would lose weight within a few weeks of diet and exercise but that is no longer the case. Hope you can help.

July 03, 2013

Adrian Bryant

so exactly how many calories are you eating?

July 05, 2013


Between 1200 to 1500.

July 06, 2013


I have been having bloating issues ever since I quit smoking 2.5 years ago.
I have lost 70 lbs after putting on 40 from the quit, so now I'm down to 165. However...
I did lose weight in part taking green bean coffee extract and raspberry ketones. I stopped taking them after about 4 months because I didn't want to be dependent and because progressively I had hypoglycemia issues and slow muscle recovery making it hard to work out. And I probably lost some muscle mass too during that time. I eat completely healthy and work out. When I'm not working out I work at a mill, very active labor.
Suddenly again after the fat loss supplements have stopped for about a month or I'm getting bloating. No matter what I eat, I have a gross jiggly jello belly. My legs are toning up pretty well but the belly is distended bloated. I don't actually physically feel bloated, but my gut sticks out. I am depressed by this. I've tried apple cider vinegar, I've gone to drs, who unless you are dying, don't give a rats ass about your dream of being in a bikini.
So... I'm making a point of adding salmon into my diet at least 3 times a week and I'm upping my cardio, but I was thinking maybe I should go back on the green bean coffee extract and rasberry ketones, maybe just instead of 3 times daily with a meal, just once a day... I dunno what to do...

June 30, 2013

Adrian Bryant

certainly give the tips on this page a try but how about keeping a bloat journal to see what foods exactly are causing you to bloat

July 01, 2013


hey adrian i am 18 years old and starting college in 2 months. im 154 pounds and 5'4" and i want to lose about 30-40 pounds before college starts or maybe within the first month of college. can you pls help me?

June 11, 2013

Ana Smith

Losing close to 15 lbs is enough for your height. Consuming 1200 calories a day for the month will equal about 8lbs of weight gone. If you implement workout daily you can lose up to 10lbs in a month. Don't lose weight too fast because it can cause aging too.

June 19, 2013


Hi Adrian....i am 6 '1, build like a football player but without the muscle. While my arms and legs are fine, i have a big beer belly, moobs, and fat on the face. Apart from reducing the beer intake what do i have to do.

Hi Adrian,

So I've browsed through your site (it's great) and have been doing some of the butt & thigh exercises. I do have a butt and hips but just want a more lifted butt but my main concern is my stomach. I'm 5'3, 123lbs so not overweight at all but I still have that lingering little pouch from after my pregnancy. I have begun working out doing cardio and ab workouts everyday but wanted to know if maybe I should take hydroxycut or something to assist with losing an inch or two on my waist?

May 31, 2013

Adrian Bryant

you can take the supplement for extra energy but in the end it all comes down to your diet and exercise plan. have you seen this?

Hi I'm Yazmin ,
I'm 5'8 & weight about 155lbs. I work out about about 4 times a week. I run about 2.5 miles , then I do abs work outs (crunches, sit ups , planks ect.) and then I do weights. I've been doing this for about 2 months already and I haven't really seen any changes in my body which is quite depressing. It just seems like my belly fat and love handles won't go away. I drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy everyday. Is there anything else I can do to get rid of this fat? I would really appreciate it.
