5-Day Flat Belly Menu

Flatten that tummy with these skinny meal ideas.

Are you ready for a fabulous flat belly? Of course you are! Whether your goal is to slip into something slinky or stretch out on the sand, we’ve got a 5-day flat belly menu that will help you reach your tummy-trimming target.

When it comes to flat belly meals, some foods are better than others. Many of the ingredients, like fruits and veggies, used in this menu are low in fat and calories, making them natural choices for slimming that middle. Other ingredients, like nuts and avocados, offer healthy fats that help boost the metabolism for more efficient fat burn.

Fiber is another must-have on any menu for a flat belly. Foods like oatmeal, fruits, and vegetables have the fiber your body needs to reduce the bloating and constipation that makes the belly look larger than it is in reality. In addition, protein foods, such as chicken, help flatten the tummy area by providing fuel for building lean muscle, which burns more calories than fat.

A flat belly starts in the kitchen but exercise is important for toning and tightening muscles too. Check out 3-Step Flat Belly Challenge or Flat Belly Workout.

Don’t let unhealthy beverages sink your tight tummy goals! Add these 5 Flat Belly Drinks to the menu too.

    1. Sara, Everyone is different and it really depends on your schedule. Generally speaking, the earlier the better, prior to 6:00 p.m..

  1. Thanks Gale, I started the 1st day but I could not follow I felt hungry, the lunch was not enough but I did not add Almond and I replaced the goat cheese by the Mozzarella and I was oblige to take my dinner around 5 because I was hungry, Gale I am confused which meal plan is good for me because I am skinny girl with Tommy 29% fat, Advice me please thanks again

  2. Thanks, Gale, I appreciate your advice. How can I know the need of my body or the calories should I eat per day in order to create my own meal plan from those two links,

    Best regards,

    1. Sara, That’s difficult to say since tons of variables come into play. I recommend experimenting until you know exactly what works best for your body. 🙂

  3. I had a baby and I had a c section and I haven’t really been exercising much because I’m worried about my incision hurting. Because it was so painful. What can I eat to not make the weight go to my legs? I have big thighs and a big stomach and that’s where all the weight goes.

    1. Ashley, Unfortunately, weight gain or loss is distributed equally. The weight doesn’t discriminate. 🙁
