WANT DEFINED ABS? PART TWO: NUTRITION
What to eat to get six pack abs? How often we need to eat? What is carbs cycling? What are the best carbs?
You can find the answers to these questions below.
✅EAT FREQUENT MEALS When you eat frequent meals, your body has less gastric bulk to digest, which creates less of a bloated appearance. Yay 😁 ✅GO LOW-CARBS Your body stores extra water with extra carbohydrates. This can lead to a puffy belly that hides muscle definition. Go for small portions of complex carbs (like quinoa, brown rice, vegetables, but not starchy ones), but only BEFORE AND AFTER WORKOUT. ✅DO CARBS CYCLING Very simple: on the days when you workout, you eat about 200g of carbs; and on the days when you don’t workout (or have a low-intensity workout) you eat about 40 grams of carbs. Eat lots of green vegetables, they are low in carbs. ✅EAT PROTEIN Make sure at least 15%-25% of your total daily calories come from protein (25-30 grams of protein at each meal). ✅FAT IS GREAT Monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids found in foods such as fish, avocados, nuts, seeds and olive oil. Studies showed that consuming omega-3 fatty acids can decrease waist circumference.
