Let’s talk about how to flatten your belly fast.

Crunches are not the secret to six-pack abs. To get flat abs and avoid poor posture or back pain at the same time, you need to balance exercises like crunches with other types of exercise, like back exercises.

Two of the best types of exercises for belly fat are long walks or hikes and high-intensity interval training (HIIT). While exercise is important, diet is more critical when it comes to losing belly fat.

The best fat-burning diet is the Healthy Keto® diet. This is a combination of high-quality protein, low-starch vegetables, and other nutrient-dense, low-carb foods.

Intermittent fasting is also beneficial to help you lose weight and get healthy. You may want to add more fat to your diet initially to help you fast for longer periods. But, once you become adapted and start losing fat, you may want to cut back the fat you consume.

You can take certain remedies for fat-burning, but realize these won't work unless you also change your diet.

A few of the best fat-burning supplements include:
• Garcinia Cambogia
• Raspberry ketones
• Green tea extract
• Caffeine
• Chili pepper extract

In some cases, you might mistake bloating for belly fat. Intermittent fasting can help decrease bloating. Bloating could mean you also need more acid in your stomach. Betaine hydrochloride is the best remedy for bloating caused by a lack of stomach acid. A lack of bile can also create bloating. In this case, you could try taking bile salts.

Top foods that cause bloating include:
• Fruit
• Yogurt
• Beans
• Grains
• Almond flour
• Sugar alcohols
• Tapioca fiber
• Soluble corn fiber
• Plant-based green shakes or protein shakes

If you have IBS or an inflammatory condition in your gut, you may want to try the carnivore diet for a little while to see if that helps reduce bloating.

To flatten your stomach fast, you also need to lower your stress. Walking, physical work, and getting plenty of sleep are great ways to reduce stress.

If you’re going into menopause, it’s also essential to support your adrenal glands to help avoid stubborn belly fat down the road.

    Reduce sugar. Slowly. It’ll happen. This works.

    • Yerr1337 on September 20, 2023 at 12:46 pm

      Not slowly. NOW.

    • warthogA10 on September 20, 2023 at 12:55 pm

      @Yerr1337 the biggest step is completely replacing sugary drinks with water.
      I found purified water, kept in the fridge to be the best (no weird aftertaste)
      But you’ll need to supplement minerals because the purifying process eliminates them.
      After a while you won’t even be able to drink sugary drinks, especially soda because it will taste nasty.

    • Chuck H on September 20, 2023 at 2:10 pm

      I did. I use agave and monk fruit. But it’s difficult to just avoid sugar completely. Sugar is in almost everything

    • S. Stephens on September 20, 2023 at 2:35 pm

      They said Agave is worse than sugar… better research that. Maybe you mean erythritol?

  3. Doloop Pi on September 20, 2023 at 10:13 am

    • Spam Mouse on September 20, 2023 at 12:03 pm

      Well done, keep going.

    • Last Preacher on September 20, 2023 at 6:50 pm

      The secret is to never give up. Just keep doing the right thing and the body will shed the fat and the extra weight.

  5. Xero Punt on September 20, 2023 at 10:53 am

    as you may know: sit if you’re laying down, stand if you’re sitting, walk if you’re sitting, walk briskly if you’re walking, run if you’re walking briskly, do more intense ab-work if you’re running.

    • Les Grossman on September 20, 2023 at 11:46 am

      What lol

    • KBArchery on September 20, 2023 at 11:56 am

      Yes but you can’t out run your diet 🏃🏻🍩🍪

    • L G on September 20, 2023 at 12:17 pm

      I’m confused 😅

    • gabriel wachong on September 20, 2023 at 12:34 pm

      Actually running would not work as well as walking. Dr Berg does mention that on other videos. Its the low intensity of walking that stimulates the fat burning hormones

    • Xero Punt on September 20, 2023 at 1:07 pm

      @gabriel wachong

      partly true. how low? low long tho?

      I was referring to people who still don’t see results. to take it up a notch. we may see walkers with bellies, but less so on runners…

  6. WARRIOR on September 20, 2023 at 10:59 am

    I’ve reduce almost 4Kg/9lb just in 20 days by avoiding Sugar , 5 eggs in morning 4ltr water a day, 1.5 hours simple walk daily .
    Thank you Dr. Love you from Pakistan .🇵🇰🇵🇰

    • Andrew Rogers on September 20, 2023 at 11:20 am

      What do you eat for dinner?

    • 112rickyT on September 20, 2023 at 11:22 am

      @Andrew Rogershe eats donkey meat it’s a popular dish in Pakistan

    • Adrian on September 20, 2023 at 11:36 am

      Why drink so much water? Check a video from Dr Berg about water consumption

  7. Carla Matthew on September 20, 2023 at 11:09 am

    My biggest fat maker is carbs. I went without bread for 2 weeks and I was getting serious results. Thanks Dr Berg for the clear explanations as always. ❤❤❤❤

    • Spam Mouse on September 20, 2023 at 12:02 pm

      Well done Carla.

    • Truls Rakvag on September 20, 2023 at 12:40 pm

      What did you swap out the bread with?

    • Seattle Six on September 20, 2023 at 1:26 pm

      @Truls RakvagI like chia ground with flax as a substitute. Makes for a great muffin in only 90 seconds mixed with MCT, egg, baking powder, salt, berries or nuts

    • Carla Matthew on September 20, 2023 at 1:54 pm

      @Truls Rakvag i haven’t replace it with anything as yet. i plan to replace it with chia seeds. and also i significantly reduced rice and pasta. these i replaced with quinoa. i increased my vegetable intake as well. as i live in the Caribbean, i have access to seasonal fruits. this worked for me as i have cystic ovaries. so my dietary needs may be different from yours. i have also began to replace cane sugar with local honey.

    • Godnyx on September 20, 2023 at 4:00 pm

      How much bread were you eating before?

  8. shawn hunter on September 20, 2023 at 11:13 am

    Very thorough video! Thought you were not going to mention stress, but there it was. Great work, as always! Thank you!

  9. Aga Glowala on September 20, 2023 at 11:24 am

    Thank you Dr. Berg for helping us to understand nutrition ❤️

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on September 20, 2023 at 12:27 pm

      Glad to help!

  10. mekman4 on September 20, 2023 at 11:44 am

    This video is extremely concise! I dropped the sugar alcohols and I haven’t run into a problem with nuts just yet. I think I confused gas with bloating, otherwise, I ate a lot of nuts and sugar alcohols and was slender in a way that worried my family members last year, but I was (and still am) doing OMAD at the time. My goal was/is to beat the chronic gas and removing sugar alcohols and caffeine (chocolate) and seltzer exactly did that (for a while now). But all of these discoveries and road maps came through your knowledge and work and I appreciate it. if I ever had to start over or go through it all again, I could at least _find my way back._ Thank you!

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on September 20, 2023 at 12:09 pm

      That’s great. Glad my videos helped you. Stay safe and healthy!

    • My Opinion on September 20, 2023 at 6:04 pm

      lots of alcoholics are scrawny

  11. 1965RonnieP on September 20, 2023 at 11:51 am

    Goodmorning Dr Berg, always good to see you. Great information !
    I have lost 35 lbs following your fasting and dieting tips, I’m grateful to you Sir.
    Much healthier these days and almost at my goal weight. God Bless 👍🏻

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on September 20, 2023 at 1:24 pm

      Good job. Keep up the good work. Would you like to share your Keto/ IF success story on my website? I’d be happy to see your story there. Feel free to upload your story here:

    • 1965RonnieP on September 20, 2023 at 2:15 pm

      I certainly will and thank you for that opportunity.
      Keto has done everything you and other genuine Doctors have said it would do. I am fully aware of big pharma . I won’t be a cash cow with a short life expectancy. You are a powerful messenger of the truth. Ty Sir

  12. Mario Bueno on September 20, 2023 at 12:28 pm

    Dr Berg saved me from diabetes and hypothyroidism. Thank you for everything you do for us!

    • Teneshia Smith on September 20, 2023 at 1:38 pm

      How did he save you from hypothyroidism?? Curious??

    • blessedlove on September 20, 2023 at 2:16 pm

      Please tell us how. What did you do?

    • mandschu1 on September 20, 2023 at 3:11 pm

      Yes please💚💚💚

    • Cosmina D. on September 20, 2023 at 3:13 pm

      Yes, i have Hashi and pre diabetes and nothing seems to work on me, even keto or medication. So what did you do?

    • Jana on September 20, 2023 at 4:57 pm

      Yes, the liver controls everything, including the thyroid. Heal your liver, by cutting the carbs and your thyroid should improve its function.

  13. AKASHI DESIGNS on September 20, 2023 at 1:08 pm

    I highly believe Dr. Eric has saved many lives. His videos have been guiding me through 16:8 Intermittent fasting, today is my 18th day. Much thanks and love from Kenya 🇰🇪.

    • Christine Were on September 20, 2023 at 4:51 pm

      Totally agree! Watching from Kenya too 😊

  14. AvGeek Steve on September 20, 2023 at 1:35 pm

    I used to weight 240lbs, was considered obese, pre diabetic, on 3 types of BP meds (that never really lowered my BP) and when my GP told me if I don’t do anything about my weight I could have a stroke, become diabetic etc. Because of Dr Berg’s videos, I have lost over 70lbs in as little as 4 months. KETO and IF work. I am a poster child of it. Thank you Dr Berg, you literally saved my life. P.S. ACV and Lemon water staves off hunger.

    • Mary Folks on September 20, 2023 at 1:51 pm

      I was 240 also. Now around 190 but I haven’t completely given up sugar, mostly but I still have sugar in my Greek yogurt. Drinking coffee black and cutting out pop was a big help 😊

    • Will J on September 20, 2023 at 3:01 pm

      So did you fired your doctor?

    • Britney B on September 20, 2023 at 5:17 pm

      What’s ps

  15. Liverpool Vista on September 20, 2023 at 1:40 pm

    Gone from 112kg to 79kg since March following Dr Eric’s advice. Dr Eric has also mentioned in the past to cut out the booze if you want a flat stomach.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on September 20, 2023 at 2:06 pm

      Great job, thanks for sharing!

  16. Elizabeth Ndirangu on September 20, 2023 at 2:47 pm

    Every lesson,training and videos from you,Doctor Berg,are a game-changer in people’s lives…Kudos!

  17. CÉSAR on September 20, 2023 at 2:53 pm

    Thank you for all your hard work Dr. Berg. YouTube and other media outlets may try to censor you because you’re teaching us a more hollistic way to be healthy and least expensive actually, which is what bothers “big pharma’s” pockets. I’ve learned so much from you. Thank you for enlighting us to a better option to live happier and healthier. Your fan Julio Cesar from Tijuana, Baja California/San Diego, California area since 2020.

  18. S. Stephens on September 20, 2023 at 2:54 pm

    This video is 1000% right on with what’s going on in my body … the belly fat due to excess carbs/insulin, snacking, bloating is a problem for me… Dr Berg always inspires me. I’m going to do better, try harder – I will stop the morning “plant Protein Shakes with fruit”, etc and so a better job at Keto. Thanks Dr Berg!!

  19. Godnyx on September 20, 2023 at 4:00 pm

    Dr. Berg just said *EVERYTHING* in just 10 minutes and even added some explanation of *WHY* things happen as they happen!

    Sir, your work is *PHENOMENAL!!!!!*

  20. Dom Evans on September 20, 2023 at 4:08 pm

    Just wanted to say thanks Dr Berg, you have helped me so much. For years I struggled with my weight, but I hit 104kg last Xmas aged 46 with a massive gut (all on my abdomen and face). With your guidance (Keto and IMF) I have dropped to 87kg, with a goal of 84kg by the end of the year. My BP is now normal, I no longer feel permanently fatigued and grumpy, and I feel 10 years younger. I feel like an advert, but it’s true. Keto+IMF is the only things that’s ever worked, with the occasions 24-48hr fasts to break plateaus. Cheers.
