It is very common for people to become discouraged when they begin a new fitness plan. They plan this whole routine: Monday – Abs, Tuesday – Arms, Wednesday- Legs, etc. They think they will lose all this weight by going to the gym regularly and sticking to a workout schedule. Well, this is partly true. You cannot lose weight without exercising, however, the biggest factor in losing weight is your diet. Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym.

Everyone has the ability to get a six-pack, but you won’t get it by doing a hundred crunches a day. The truth is everyone already has a six-pack, but it is just hidden underneath all that belly fat. The only way you are going to achieve those chiseled abs is through your kitchen. Of course, you can still do crunches regularly, and you will be that much further ahead.

One of the best ways to change your diet is to transition slowly. One week, try taking out your favorite treats from wal-mart. It will save you some money too!

There are four more things you should change in your diet to achieve nice abs. First, add healthy fats to your diet such as nuts, coconut oil, and avocados. Second, increase your water intake.

Now, remember the saying that, “Abs are Made in the Kitchen, Not the Gym!” I’m not telling you to just eat right and forget about exercise completely. You still need to get your cardio in by taking a run on a treadmill, or by doing the stair stepper, or even elliptical. However, make sure you eat right at the same time, because that’s when the real results will come.
