I could’ve called this post, “Get rid of belly fat” or “Lose stomach fat fast,” but I settled on the washboard abs line because why go half way? Life wasn’t meant for half ways. It was meant for the full monty. So, get yourself washboard abs by doing 15 simple things, as much as you can.
Here’s our get-a-six-pack list —
Cut out the salt —
Cut out the sugar. If soda is your problem, AVOID IT.
Cut out the carbs — (Supposedly, this will also make you less hungry.)
Add fiber. If you poop it out, it won’t stay around your waist. (At least that’s my theory.) —
Stay away from processed food and meats —
Eat more protein. It fills you up and leans you down —
Avoid alcohol and caffeine —
Sleep 7 hours, because it cuts back on cravings —
Eat small meals, but stay within your calorie intake (oh and here’s where you can find your calorie intake)!
Short high bursts of energy, cardiovascular exercise (You know, interval train.) —
Snack on dill pickles. They have 1 calorie per slice. (Men’s fitness told me about that and I didn’t believe it. So, here’s the proof on the jar I have at home. Mine looks more like 5 cals a slice, but still!) —
Eat off smaller dinner plates —
Lift. I’ve read lift and than do cardio, but you’ve got to lift, regardless and this goes for the ladies too! —
Build in a cheat day —
Get on the scale. Daily. —
That’s it! Follow all of that and you should be able to bounce a quarter off your mid-section in no time.
