My Most Recommended Diet for Washboard Abs

Apr 12, 2008
Spending a lot of time on abdominal exercises is a waste of time. If you want six pack abs in the close future your time is not well spent doing crunches and leg lifts. Even if you have the strongest six pack abs on the beach, nobody will notice them if they are covered behind a layer of fat.

There are three major factors involved in developing great six pack abs. Cardio exercising is important. You also got to increase your overall body muscle mass. Both of these will help you increase your metabolism. This article will focus on the third factor, dieting. Together with exercising you are bound to see results fast.

When people think about dieting they often think of a plan over a certain period of time. It is not. Diet is what you eat. To change your diet in a positive direction you need to change what you eat today with healthier alternatives. Choose darker bread and use vegetables instead of majonese. Skip some after dinner snacks and implement some healthy fruit or a plate of salmon with some tomatoes fried in olive oil.

I recommend eating five to six times each day. This will keep your metabolism increase to a higher level. Your body will also stop saving excess fat for between meals. You will also stop over eating as you know you do not have to wait for the next meal.

It is important that each meal consist of three major categories of food. You will want one third of protein rich food, one third of carbohydrates like pasta, brown rice or potatoes and one third fruit, vegetables or berries. Each of the parts should only be about a fistful in size. This will give you enough food to last untill the next meal.

Since you are now eating every two - three hour it is important that you plan your meals. It is always a good idea to make food twice the size of a recommended meal and store half of it for a later meal. It is also important that you have a backup meal for when it is hard to get hold on a portion of healthy food.

Proteins are the building blocks of your muscles. You need a good amount of proteins each day for your muscles to grow. You will find proteins in products like lean meats, fish, chicken, beans, lentils, grains, nuts or seeds. You can also us a protein shake to complement for the need of proteins.

Vegetables and fruits are also important. They will help you stay healthy while working out. They are also excellent stomach fillers to help you stay away from eating unhealthy food or too much meat or carbs.
