In order to lose inches off your stomach in one month, you will need to lose overall body fat. There is no way to target your stomach specifically, so simply doing crunches and sit-ups will not get you the flat stomach you're looking for. Lose excess body fat as well as inches off your stomach by combining a healthy eating plan along with a solid exercise regimen.

Clean Up Your Diet

If you want to lose weight, the first thing you have to do is cut back on your calorie intake. You need to cut 3,500 calories a week in order to lose a pound, which can be done by simply cutting 500 calories off your daily food intake. Alter your diet so that it is filled with whole grains, lean proteins and plenty of fruits and vegetables. If you are eating properly and cutting 500 calories a day, you should be able to lose at least four pounds in a month.

Hit the Gym

Spending time in the gym is another way to melt away body fat quickly. Spend at least 30 minutes a day five times a week performing cardiovascular exercise such as walking, jogging, swimming or biking to burn calories and blast fat. Performing strength training workouts three days a week will also help to fire up your metabolism, helping you burn more calories throughout the day.
