What’s stopping you from getting an instant flat belly

Wouldn’t it be great to have a flat stomach with some definition 24/7? Unfortunately, this type of dream doesn’t exist. It’s just not feasible to walk around every single day with a flat belly. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. It’s even more impossible to get a flat stomach in 2 days, but you can most certainly aspire to have one as frequently as possible. In saying that, there are a few things that can get in your way of having that flat belly – even if you are lean and have little body fat. It’s pretty annoying as these are the symptoms that I suffer from daily. Here goes: 

Four things that can screw up your flat belly goals

  1. Poor gut health. If you have a leaky gut or some other gut disorder (like IBS or Crohn’s disease), it will be tough to have a flat belly every single day. You might be lucky and have phases where it’s balanced – but more likely to increase in size when you are stressed or have eaten something that doesn’t agree with you. You could never predict when your lean belly is going to come back (or if you will ever have one)
  2. Inability to digest your food. This can cause gas, bloating, and all sort of weird stuff to happen to your stomach & gut. Some days you may look like you’re three months pregnant. I’ve had a kid at my daughter’s school ask her if I was! At the time, it was embarrassing, but it was a pretty bad bloating experience (and it was obvious to everyone). Those are the days when you suck your stomach in, but it doesn’t make a difference at all!
  3. PMS. This is a big one. You can’t escape this one every single month. It’s just inevitable that your abs will not be as flat during this time. I think us women have accepted this by now.
  4. Intolerance to certain foods. I have issues with this one. Just one thing can set us off towards bloat central. The only thing you can do with this one is riding the tide of being uncomfortable by undoing a button to get some relief. It’s not pleasant, but it’s just the gut talking here.
  5. Having slow elimination of your bowel. This is a big one. Many people don’t realise that not going to the toilet a couple of times a day is the typical poo cycle. Some people only go once per week. Do you know what a massive build up in your colon that is? Well, this most definitely can cause a lot of discomforts and a considerable amount of bloating.

From all of these situations – is there actually a way in which you can get a flatter belly in a couple of days. Well, that depends on what you suffer from, how overweight you are etc. Getting a flat belly requires a lot of dedicated meal prepping in the kitchen, and sticking to a whole food diet. But if you want to fast track it, there is something you can do – although the results are short-lived.

The best way to get a flat belly instantly.

If you go and get a colonic, you will empty the contents of your colon and provide much-needed relief to your digestion. You will also then have a much flatter, less bloated belly as a result. It won’t instantly make everything better for you but will provide some relief in that department.

 Moving forward, the requirement is to clean up your diet consistently, doing some exercise daily and continuing with this plan indefinitely. No one is perfect, and you will get your odd days of bloating or discomfort. That comes with the territory. Becoming lean takes time and effort. There is no accurate shortcut towards achieving this, but it’s excellent progress because you find better health, energy, vitality, and a zest for life on this pathway.
