Perfect ABs

Step 1:
The biggest thing in getting the body the way you want is what you give it. With the right diet you can have the energy and proper level of calories can help you on the journey to the perfect body. Most people eat two large meals a day. But, try to break them up into more “mini” meals that way your body can help absorb and get the food you are eating to a correct consumption.
Her is a small list of foods that will prevent you from getting the abs that you want to see.
1. Bread ( white bread, or grocery store cheapo bread)
2. Pasta ( all kinds)
3. Soda (all kinds even diet)
4. Candy
5. Desserts
6. McDonalds and other unhealthy restaurants
7. High sugar and oil foods ( check the labels)
Above is a list of basic foods that will prevent the abs you are looking for but below here are some that will help you get into the shape that you want.
1. Oatmeal
2. Whole Grain Breads
3. Fruits
4. Veggies
5. Eggs ( good source of protin)
6. Fish
7. Green Teas
8. Nuts
Granted these are small list but they can provide you the basics that you are going to need to change. So go through your fridge and look and see what you have and what changes you can make. It will go along way in getting you the abs you are looking for. Of course there are times you will cheat and eat that last piece of dessert. But being conscious of what you are eating and keeping to heathly nutrition then you will reach your goal.
Step 2: Exercise
Yes it is the dreaded “e” word I know we all hate it or love it there really is no in between. But, if you would like the body you are going for then it is a necessity. There are three specifics that you must focus on during your exercise routines. They are Cardio, Weight lifting, and Abs Exercises. ( min 3 times a week). Cardio is by far the easiest to do you can bike, walk, or take a nice dive in the ocean my favorite anyway.
Running is also one of my favorites but it is easier if you continue to do it in bursts when you are. So in smaller intervals sprint for 10 min then walk for 10 and then rinse and repeat. This way you are burning more fat with each exercise.
Of course if you have the opportunity then use core weights as much as three times a week. This will add muscle back where it belongs. Plus the more muscle that you have the better calories you will burn in the process.
Then of course you cannot forget the best exercise of all they are the AB exercise. Aim to work out the abs at least three times per week on a regular schedule. There are many websites including the you tube video below that will show you some of the basic workout exercise. But, play with them find out what you like best and mix it up with several of them again about three to 4four times per week.
Following these steps just for as little as three months and you will see dramatic improvements in your energy levels, body fat,, and total attitude about yourself because you will begin to look and feel better.
Tip: mix up your workout routine every 2 weeks to keep your body guessing and improving. Add or take away different weightlifting or ab exercises, or at the very least, vary the weight and reps you do.
