A popular saying is “abs are made in the kitchen”. This is so true! No matter how many ab exercises you do, that belly fat just wont let go. So you are left with one strong tummy … that no one can see. Not good!
I like to motivate those I train by telling them; “no matter how good those legs look, no matter how strong those arms are getting, no matter how tight that butt is; the first place people judge you on is your tummy.” So, listen up. What I have to say will make the difference between having A FLAT BELLY or not!
Nutrition is 70% of your success, exercise is 20%, mindset is 10%. Basically, without a good nutrition plan, your body will have a difficult time responding to the hard work you put in at the gym. A couple things I will look at are food combinations, processed foods, and stored fat.
1) Food Combinations. Your body takes nutrients from several different types of foods to function properly. Combine a protein as your entree, a starchy carbohydrate, vegetables, and healthy fat source to each meal.
2) Processed Foods. A processed food is defined as something that is man altered. For example, a white loaf of bread did not come from the ground; man created that. Although it was made with wheat and water; it was altered from its original state of being. A better source of whole food would be whole grain oatmeal, ezekial bread, and sweet potatoes, to name a few.
3) Stored Fat. If your body takes in food that it does not recognize, such as processed bread, then the food will be stored away in that belly or butt, maybe your hips. Once food is stored, good luck getting it back out.
4) Eat 5 or 6 times a day; 3 main meals and 2 small snacks each with healthy food combinations, to give your metabolism reason to speed up.
