    How much fat, roughly, to lose before a flat stomach?

    Based on these side profile photos, roughly how much weight (in terms of fat loss, of course, not losing lean muscle mass), would I need to lose before my stomach appeared flat?


    For context, I am 5ft4 inches tall and wear a US size 6/UK 10.

    You cant tell anything from these photos, you need to post something in good lighting from the front in minimal clothing that exposes your midsection. Also post your weight in addition to your height, not your clothing size.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I thought that side profile photos were better for judging stomach size, because side profile shows whether a stomach is flat or not, whereas from the front view you can't tell?

    Both are actually better, but to assess overall bodyfat you really need at least a front full waist up exposed midsection view.

    Seems like you have a very long history of making posts like this, in which case the answer will still be to keep yourself in a caloric deficit until you're happy with the level of fat you're carrying.

    Also maybe you should seek some professional help with your body image issues.

    Thank you for this response. I don't have a 'body image' issue (I'm not insecure or worried about my body), I am simply curious as to how my body looked a few months ago, before I lost a bit of weight. I like to track where I was and where I am now.

    I just wanted a rough judgement as to whether my stomach looked slightly chubby, average sized, or slim back then.

    LOL both photos are dark, grainy, and not only are you wearing your normal clothes over your torso, you're covering your midsection with your arm...this must be a joke. You seem to be posting photos that deliberately try to hide your midsection.

    This is the same person who posted, several months ago, several pictures of "a friend" on a bike asking about her midsection. Those posts have disappeared so they were either deleted or posted under a different name but I do remember that username including "louise" and seeing the same profile pictures. This is her thing--posting poorly shot/lit ab pictures which she sometimes claims as her own and sometimes does not.

    Why do you have a blacked out face in the photos when you basically have a mug shot for your avi? Are those photos even you?
