Getting a great 6 pack is not all about sit-ups. Awesome looking abs take a daily dedication to making improvements to your fitness and nutrition. I know from personal experience that you can exercise every single day and still not get awesome looking abs. It takes smart eating, too. Eating for abs is not rocket science. Eat plenty of fiber and protein, and limit your junk intake (fat and unhealthy snacks). Focus on these three aspects of nutrition and you will be well on your way!
Your body should get about 30 grams of protein each meal. If you try and get your protein from meat or dairy sources, it could set you back. Meat and dairy products are very high in sodium and fat. Trying to get your protein that way will most likely cause weight gain from the added fat. Fruits and vegetables have at least one gram of protein in them. Chicken, turkey, tuna, eggs, natural peanut butter, are all other sources of protein. If you need to you can fill in a void by taking in a whey protein shake.
Eggs are a great source of protein. Every egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat. Eggs are even good for your eyes, and you can cook them so many delicious ways!
Before we start exercising to shed flab, we should find out the root cause of the problem so that we can win the battle of the bulge. The excess flab may be due to poor metabolism. Our appetite is controlled by hormones produced by our body and certain chemicals produced by our brains. We should strive to balance our hormones and consume omegas, pumpkin oil, Royal CBD, flaxseed oil as they help reduce fat.
Flaxseed oils contain ALA, a long-chain fatty acid. It breaks down into DHA and EPA which is then used by the blood stream. Flaxseed oils are good for people who want to gain wait, who have sensitive stomachs, or those who might be allergic to fish.
When under stress, the adrenal gland in our body produces cortisol, a hormone that increases our blood sugar and insulin levels and slows down the burning of fat. Stress increases inflammation which causes weight gain around the waist. We should fight stress by trying to keep our mind free from negatives.
If you’ve managed to get a sunburn use peppermint and aloe vera aromatherapy soap. It also brings relief for insect bites too. If you want relief from your sunburn and a soap that’s calming try lemon poppy seed with peppermint. It’s a great combo.
