Your stomach muscles are different the any other muscles in your body. To obtain that flat belly you must do targeted exercise, meaning you must do work outs that pertain directly to your belly.

These belly workouts should be 4 to 5 times a week and a hour and a half a day combined with other workouts.

At least not to the point where it's affecting my health.

The fourth way to lose belly fat is to have the right mind. You can workout, eat right, and keep your stress level low but if you have a compromise mind then it wont last. You see to lose weight you have to make up in your mind that this is what you want to do and nothing will get in the way of you completing this task. If you working out each day depends on your feelings then you don't have the right mind set. To lose belly fat you should be thinking positive, and doing exercise should be part of your everyday life just like eating is. The type of mind you should have is a determined, dedicated, driven, positive one that is constantly making sacrifices to obtain a healthy goal for yourself.

These are just important tips to follow if you want to lose that belly fat. It's always important to remember to lose belly fat it's a combination of things that you must do to be successful. Once you master all four steps you will be well on you way to obtaining that flat belly in no time.
