How to get abs?

Hello I want abs but have no clue how to get them and I cant afford to join the gym or get a trainer. I'm [a teenager] and weigh 145 pounds.I was thinking of just doing sit ups at home but will that be enough and also what kind of food should I eat when trying to get abs? Also I only want to work on my stomach and nothing else but I heard if you do that your body will look uneven, is that true? Also how much sit ups should I do a day? I was thinking 100 but is that too little or too much?

Re: How to get abs?

Everyone has ab muscles. Doing situps makes them larger, rounder and stronger, while doing cardio burns the fat so they actually show. If you have a gut then youll need to start running or ride a bike, and cut down on fat. If you just do situps and no cardio, you make your abs stronger but there wont be much change in appearance.
