ABS are made in the Kitchen

2 December 2013

Dear all, I'm back to blogging! It's time for some fitness tips, Today's topic  
"Abs Are Made in the Kitchen".. Why Good Nutrition is Key. We've all heard the saying "Abs are made in kitchen". 
But is it true?! ABSOLUTELY YES!

As some of you may have experienced, no matter how hard you train, you just can not seem to get the results you want! The Secret to getting an ABS starts in the kitchen, NOT the gym. You can crunch and crunch until the cows come home, but if you’re still eating like one, you’ll never see the results. Reduction of body fat is the only way to uncover that hidden ABS. Eat a well-balanced diet that includes lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats and plenty of fruits and veggies.

If your diet is poor, you will find that you acquire little or no results! Even if you exercise every day. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t do any ABS workout. You still need to do that to define those abs, but you are NOT going to see them until you change your relationship with food! hahahahaha :D



One more thing!!
Don't skip meals; I know this sounds like something your mother would say, but skipping meals equals to mental and physical exhaustion and will also lead to weight gain. Not eating or skipping meals SLOWS down your metabolism, so when you DO eat something your body immediately stores it as fat as it doesn't know when its next meal is coming.. So, DON'T SKIP MEALS. Eat healthy, clean & nutritious foods. Be consistent with your clean eating & exercise.

Alright, Here's some of the good food for our body! Check it out (^_−)−☆


1. Almonds and Other Nuts 

Benefits : Building muscle, fighting food cravings

All nuts are high in protein and monounsaturated fat, but almonds are the best.

2. Beans 

Benefits : Building muscle, helping to burn fat, regulating digestion

Beans are, as the famous rhyme says, good for your heart; the more you eat them, the more you'll be able to control your hunger. They're all low in fat, and they're packed with protein, fiber, and iron — nutrients crucial for building muscle and losing weight. 

3. Spinach and Other Green Vegetables

Benefits : Neutralizing free radicals 

4. Dairy Products 
(nonfat or low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese)

Benefits : Building strong bones, firing up weight loss

Dairy is nutrition's help strengthening bones. Low-fat yogurt, cheeses, and other dairy products can play a key role in your diet. 

5. Oatmeal 
(unsweetened, unflavored)

Benefits : Boosting energy, reducing cholesterol, maintaining blood-sugar levels

Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, meaning that it attracts fluid and stays in your stomach longer than insoluble fiber.


6. Eggs

Benefits : Building muscle, burning fat



7. Lean Meats 
(lean steak, chicken, fish)

Benefits : Building muscle, improving the immune system

8. Olive Oil

Benefits: Lowering cholesterol, boosting the immune system


10. Whole-Grain Breads and Cereals

Benefits: Preventing your body from storing fat

Whole-grain bread keeps insulin levels low, which keeps you from storing fat. 


11. Raspberries and Other Berries 

Benefits: Protecting your heart, enhancing eyesight, improving memory, preventing cravings

Blueberries are one of the most healthful foods you can eat. And strawberries contain another valuable form of fiber called pectin that can make you feel fuller for hours.



Nothing comes easily, but when you are motivated, have a desire & passion to truly care for your body & you are dedicated to that vision - You are capable of achieving that amazing body you have always wanted.

WORK FOR IT o(^_^)o

  1. Instant oatmeal is actually not as good because of its high GI value. It will make you feel full but you will lose that feeling quicker than rolled oats. Instant oatmeal has unnecessary ingredients in it that contributes to calorie count. Plus it's not as healthy as rolled oats since it's processed more!

    Try rolled oats! Overnight oats are a great breakfast choice

    1. Yes, Mandy is absolutely right. Anything that is 'processed' can be considered as feeling' not full'. Always go for organic and food near to raw state, and you will never be wrong about your diet
