The only way to get abs, is your diet. Of course, you will be need to workout, but the truth is, abs are made in the kitchen.  Regardless on how hard you’re working out, if your diet sucks, your abs will suck.  Our nutrition matters.

Rule 1: Protein

Protein builds lean muscle and burns body fat. Eating a high diet in lean protein is the norm for professional athletes and competitive body builders. 

Rule 2: Post Workout Carbs

Carbohydrates are not bad. Remember that. Carbohydrates are not bad, and will not make you fat. Carbohydrates can be your friend. Eating carbohydrates after a workout refuels your body.  It promotes growth, recovery, and results. It will also allow you to get all of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber that your body needs. 

Rule 3: Healthy Fats

Say goodbye to vegetable oil. Eating healthy fats like nuts, fish oils, and olive oils allow your insulin levels to stay stable. Stable insulin levels helps aide in losing belly fat. 

Rule 4: Stop Being A Crunch Machine

Yes, crunches activate your muscles in your abdomen, but they won’t be your ab creator. Allowing total body movements promotes more fat loss and muscle building response. 

Rule 5: Cardio

Cardio is a great way to burn fat, but the best way to burn more fat is doing interval workouts. For targeting abs, in between your intervals, throw in some ab workouts, like planks, crunches, and sit ups.
