While you likely already know that drinking an adequate amount of water is good for your health, experts say it's essential if you're trying to achieve a flatter stomach.

"Drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day," suggests Samantha McKinney, RD, CPT, a registered dietitian and personal trainer at Life Time. "This not only hydrates, detoxifies, and boosts energy, but it also helps you naturally limit your intake of soda pop, sweetened coffee drinks, and other sugary beverages."

Increasing your protein intake does more than just keep you full for longer—it can also make it easier to get the flat stomach you're hoping for by displacing less healthy foods in your diet.

"Consume one gram of protein per pound of ideal body weight throughout your day's meals and snacks," recommends McKinney. "Getting enough protein in naturally helps stabilize blood sugar and insulin, as well as helps kill cravings for processed foods since it's so filling."

You may think you're eating enough veggies as it is, but McKinney says that, in order to get a flat stomach and uncover your abs, you may need to significantly ramp up your vegetable intake. McKinney recommends eating five to seven cups of non-starchy vegetables a day to help reset some

"This provides an array of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. It also delivers hunger-busting fiber that helps balance your hormones and regulate your appetite," McKinney explains.
