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 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 & Fats

Use this tool to figure out how much protein you need to eat to get a flatter stomach.

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. Natural Diuretics

9. Supplements

10. Epsom Salt

Epsom salt baths is what many celebriteis like Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham secretly do for a flatter stomach. Just mix two cups of Epsom salt in warm bathwater and then soak for 15 minutes 2-to-3 times per week to get rid of bloating and lose water weight.

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.

11. Steam Room

You can use a steam room or sauna for 15 minutes to make you sweat to flush out excess water weight and of course…

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.

12. Keep a Journal

Keep a bloat journal to help you find out which foods &/or drinks are making you get bloated so you can eat less of those foods. For example…

If you get bloated after eating dairy products then you may be lactose intolerant meaning your stomach can't digest the lactose or milk sugar found in most dairy products causing you to get bloated but you can still enjoy dairy products as long as you drink water after eating dairy products to prevent bloating or use lactose-free dairy products.

13. Women

You can take Calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin E to prevent or eliminate any bloating bought on by PMS.

14. Fiber

Although eating fiber can speed up fat loss (see fast weight loss tip #6 here…)

15. Avoid Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables like kale, broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower are good for you but they cause you to get bloated because your body has a tougher time digetsinng raffinose which is a complex sugar found in cruciferous vegetables.

Complete list of Cruciferous Vegetables

16. Alcohol, Chocolate & Coffee

17. Alternative Meds?

Some medications like contraceptives or birth control pills can cause stomach bloating for various reasons so you may want to see your doctor about using alternative medications that will not cause any bloating.

18. IBS

You may have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (or IBS) which causes bloating.

I wanted to know if drinking too much water can make the belly bloat. I am 5 1' and weight 134lbs. I try to drink a minimum of 64oz of water daily and can go way over that drinking about 88oz of water daily. Also, I try to drink my 64oz of water before I leave work, so I start around 8am and try to finish before 3pm. Can this cause belly bloat trying to drink all my water in such a short period of time? I eat pretty clean, I workout 3-4 days a week by lifting heavy and doing HIT cardio for about 10 minutes on my workout days after lifting my weights. My measurements are 34-28-41. Even though my stomach is small it has the bloat going on that I hate. I cut back on eating a lot of sodium, I do have my eggs daily so not sure if its dairy products? I need help what can I do?

Forgot to mention, I do not drink soda or fruity drinks at all. The only thing I drink besides water during the week is a glass of green tea and maybe every other day a very small cup of coffee with 2 tablespoons of creamer. Most of the time I do not even finish the coffee. I do have a cocktail or 2 when the weekend comes on either Saturday or Sunday.

water should not cause you to bloat but look at #12 on this page and keep a bloat journal to see if you can pinpoint the cause

Hi, Adrian;
I'm new to your site and videos, but so far I've enjoyed all the info. However, if I may ask: is it normal that after quitting diet drinks, drinking more water, and starting 30 min HIIT elliptical work outs, there is absolutely NO difference in my body? I'm about 5'9", 147lbs, trying to lose my last 10lbs after my baby, and it seems freaking impossible. I'm not a big carb-refined sugar-processed foods eater at all. I eat a light breakfast involving egg whites (most of the time) and usually a lunch consisting, for example, of 6-8 oz of salmon and broccoli w a little bit of cheese. I snack on nuts and fruit throughout the day. For supper, I normally don't have a full meal but will try to snack on something high in protein and usually have a decaff w stevia a a little bit of fat free milk. I wasn't working out at all and eating the same before; wasn't losing, but not gaining either. I've only done your workouts 5 days so far (once a day bc of work and life) - but I'm freaking out bc I see ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. As a matter of fact, I gained a pound :-/ Is this normal?
I must mention, I am taking CLA and L-Carnitine. I also have Hashimoto's disease, but last I checked, it was controlled and thyroid levels were normal.
I would think that after months of being sedentary, SOMETHING would show out of HIIT cardio and dropping artificial sweeteners and cereals. How much longer may it be before I start to notice something?- Anything? .... Thanks!
