There is no in between; the idea of having a flat stomach can either be a reality or an unaccomplished day dream. It takes guts (pun intended) to stick to a strict rule of diet and healthy living to get a flat tummy. That’s why the internet is full of quick solutions for great abs.

A tedious amount of research has revealed that each of the following are the most common tips given for a flat tummy.

Looking for a quick way to lose the belly fat in just a week? Try these out. Combining the following should help you burn  a few inches in just a week.

1. Circuit training

If you want to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, you have to perform circuit training three days per week. How can you achieve this? Indulge in full body exercises like lunges, push-ups, and pull-ups, for one set of 15 repetitions. Don't forget to follow every exercise with one minute of jumping rope. You should be able to burn around 500 to 600 calories per workout.

2. Go for abdomial muscles workout

If wondering how to lose tummy fat quickly, then include abdominal muscles workout in your 'tips to reduce belly' list. So this three times in the week. Crunches and leg raises for three sets of 20 repetitions should be done. Also, do planks by holding your body in a push-up position on your elbows for 30 to 60 seconds for four sets.

3. Check your food

The kind of food you will eat in this period is vital in bringing about any change. Natural foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads and pastas, chicken, beef, fish and low fat dairy should replace processed foods full of sugar.

4. Avoid salt

To minimize water retention, lower your sodium intake. This means you need to avoid salt. You can flavour your food with other herbs and spices instead.

5. Drink water

Have adequate water to flush away those toxins. This will give you dual benefits of a glowing skin and a flat tummy. Drinking water does not only mean having gallons of water in a day, but also drinking healthy drinks like green teas with anti-oxidants and fresh vegetable and fruit juice.

6. Stay away from alcohol

Alcohol can make your stomach feel bloated. To get that perfect tummy for a figure-hugging dress or silk saree, stay away from having any alcohol for this week at least.

7. Say bye-bye to stress

Stressing and anxiety can cause the over-production of a certain hormone called cortisol, which encourages weight gain about the belly area. Try to keep your cool.
