Everywhere you turn, someone’s promising the next secret to getting 6 pack abs. Some of these so called “secrets” have some degree of accuracy, while others have very little. Deciphering which methods are the best for getting those rippling abs you’ve always dreamed of is critical to achieving this goal.
Go for the good carbs. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…and the way to a man’s abs is through the kitchen. If you’re not eating right (man or woman notwithstanding), your abs will (or won’t, rather) show it.
- Not all carbs are evil. It’s the simple, white carbs that you want to avoid. Whole grains (aka “slow carbs”) are rich in fiber and go through your system much more slowly (hence the name) than simple, refined carbs (the white ones). So don’t shy away from the browns — brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat and oats.
- Pack on protein early in the morning. Because straight up, you’ll eat less (and it’s the building blocks you need to build muscle tissue). People who got 35 grams of protein at breakfast were less hungry throughout the day and saw favorable changes in the hormones and brain signals that control appetite.
- Getting six pack abs isn’t necessarily about counting calories. But you do need to get rid of the fat on top of your abs to expose the muscles underneath them — and eating a bit less will get you on track.
- Eating any breakfast was associated with increased feelings of fullness, a reduced desire to eat, and lower levels of ghrelin (a hunger-stimulating hormone) throughout the morning. But a protein-packed breakfast was associated with these benefits over the course of the entire day.
- This doesn’t mean go for the ham steak and eggs. To keep your calorie and fat levels in check, opt for Greek yogurt, egg whites, and Canadian bacon.
- What’s more, your body burns more calories breaking down protein than it does carbs and fats. Every little bit counts, right
Drink loads of water. Research shows that people who drink and drink and drink water lose more weight and keep it off long term. What’s more, it’ll up your metabolism to boot.
In a recent study, a 30% increase (albeit temporary) was seen within 10 minutes of participants drinking 17 ounces of water. And it’s best to drink it cold — your body takes energy to warm it up.
And you’ll naturally cut out those sugary, empty calorie drinks like sodas and processed juices. That’s killing two birds with one stone.
