21-Day Flat Belly Meal Plan


Flat bellies are fab. But they’re not just for celebrities with access to trainers and nannies. You can slim your middle, too, and our 21-day flat belly meal plan is a delicious place to start.
This flat belly meal plan incorporates foods that will help trim the waistline. Some foods, like salmon and chicken, offer protein to build muscle tissue, which burns more calories than fat tissue. Healthy fats, like those found in avocados, are an important part of this meal plan too because they boost belly fat burn.
We’ve also included fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to offer fiber that will satisfy the appetite. Foods for a flat belly that include fiber provide another important advantage: they keep the digestive system moving, combating the constipation and bloating that makes the waistline look like it belongs on that big white dough boy.
Like all our weight loss menus, this flat belly meal plan is flexible. Don’t like artichokes? Swap out an artichoke-based meal with one of our many Healthy Recipe Ideas. Have lots of unexpected leftovers from dinner? Feel free to enjoy them for a slimming lunch or dinner the following day.
