How to Get a Flat Stomach

There are a lot of women who will do 250 sit ups every night and wonder why they don’t have the abs that they want.  The main reason that they most likely don’t see the definition in their core is because there is fat covering the muscles. {To have a six pack, you have to lower your body fat.

 Ripped abs is not that difficult but most of the people have been misled to think that working directly on your abdominals is the only way to get that nice flat stomach. But the idea that working directly on your abs the only way you can get that nice flat sexy stomach is totally a misconception. If you really want to have six pack abs then realize first of all that you already have them! That’s right-everyone has six pack of abs. If you don’t see them that’s because they are hidden under the layer of fat. So the first thing to keep in mind is that you already have six pack of abs-you just need to uncover them. Your first goal then is to lose the extra fat that is deposited on your body. This goal is best accomplished by a two pronged attack. First by changing your exercise routine to mobilize the major muscle groups to elicit a fat burning response from the body and secondly by changing your diet to whole living foods and eliminating processed junk foods from your diet.

Now this cannot happen overnight and so you must be patient.  Remember you don’t need to bother with “miracle” weight loss pills or other fat burning supplements to get six pack abs.

Six pack abs is about achieving lower levels of body fat – while maintaining or building lean muscle mass to give you that lean hard look. And that’s exactly what getting six pack abs is about. Don’t waste your money on bogus supplements. The truth is that natural whole food is a much more powerful “supplement” than any “miracle pill” or powder. Some supplements can be useful, but they are not necessary. Plus eating natural unprocessed food helps elevate your metbolism in turn burning more fat day in and day out.

If you just stop eating the processed food that is everywhere you have already won half the battle. This includes white bread, loads of pasta, soda, candy, fast food, hydrogenated oils, sugars and high fructose corn syrup. Instead, replace them with foods that will help you reach your goal: oatmeal, olive oil, whole grain breads, fresh and dried fruits, vegetables, raw nuts, peanut butter, and lean chicken and fish. Stop drinking sugary soda and sports drinks and instead drink water. Be realistic- you will break the rules ocasionally, but make a conscious effort to radically improve your eating habits because getting that flat stomach will be impossible if you don’t.

 Eat a diet with more vegetables, fruit and raw nuts and seeds and cut out the junk food, sugars and processed foods. Contrary to popular (notions it is diet that plays the most important role in getting a fit lean body. You will never change your current body fat to a lower enough level unless you radically change your diet. Even if you are severely overweight and can’t do a a intense exercise program, you can begin by monitoring the food you eat.

This is the most important factor in developing that sexy six-pack.

No matter how many crunches and sit ups you force yourself into doing, it won’t burn much fat. Ab exercises strengthens and develops the muscles but it does not do any good  to remove the body fat. You could have great abdominal muscle development, and strength, but if your body fat is too high, then you still will not be able to see them! This is because most of your fat is “subcutaneous” – which means the fat is stored right underneath your skin, but right on top of your muscles – covering up your abs. To build muscle that helps burn more of your fat it is very important to start a good program of resistance training. You don’t have to have all the fancy machines at the gym. Simple barbells or kettlebells will do the trick. Your weight lifting routine works best is done about 3 days per week. The rest between the training days is important as well. With more muscle, your metabolism will increase and begin to burn more calories all day long, even while you are sitting or even sleeping. Cardio can help as well but try to vary its intensity. Some of the best cardio exercises for losing fat are running, biking, jumping rope, aerobics, and climbing stairs. Start doing any of these activities for 30 minutes at least 4-5 days a week and you will quickly start to see changes in your physique.
