Since you’re reading an article about how long it takes to get a flat stomach, I’m going to assume a few things are true about you.
First, you’re trying to lose the fat from your belly, and you want to know how fast it’s going to happen.
Perhaps you’ve been trying to get a flat stomach for months, and you’re feeling discouraged because you’re not there yet.
Or maybe you’re just starting out, and want to know how long it’ll take before you can look in the mirror and see your abs.

The length of time it takes for you to flatten your stomach depends on how much fat you need to get rid of, as well as your definition of a flat stomach.
In other words, there is no single correct answer that will apply to all people, all of the time. Nobody can tell you exactly how long it’ll take to get rid of the fat from your stomach, because they don’t know.
It might take you two months, six months, 12 months or longer. It all depends on where you’re starting from and how quickly you’re able to shift the fat.
It’s also worth pointing out that climbing the ladder of leanness becomes progressively more difficult as your body fat percentage drops.
Going from 25 to 20 percent body fat will require willpower and hard work. However, moving from 20 to 15 percent isn’t going to require a little more of a push, but a lot more.
An even higher level of discipline and focus will be needed to go from 15 percent to ten, which is why so few people ever get there.
In summary, the length of time it takes to flatten your stomach will vary from person to person. Everyone is starting from a different place, and will make progress at different rates.
But if you want a rough idea of how long it’ll take, here’s what to do.
1. Spend some time thinking about what I’ve just told you.
2. Come up with a number – 12 weeks, 6 months, 1 year – or whatever you think is realistic.
3. Take the figure you’ve just thought of and double it.
The number you’re left with is probably not going to be too far off the mark.
