Have you heard the saying that Abs are made in the kitchen not the gym? Here at The Abs Company we certainly believe there is truth in this statement. Of course we always stress the importance of training variety for maximum results. This is the reason we offer many types of Ab and Core training solutions – to keep those muscles guessing and improving. You can check some of those out here!
We believe in getting as much out of our nutrition as possible from whole foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables should be the staple of any healthy diet and are key to staying lean so you can have that flat, strong and sexy waistline you desire.
HERE ARE OUR TOP 10 NUTRITION TIPS THAT ARE A GREAT COMPLEMENT TO YOUR TRAINING REGIMEN!
1. EAT EGGS.
Research shows they do not raise cholesterol and are the bodies most absorbable form of protein. Strive for 7 per week.
2. EAT THE BLUE AND PURPLE.
Foods like blueberries and eggplant contain anthocyanins. These are antioxidants that battle inflammation.
3. OLIVE OIL SHOULD BE YOUR PRIMARY SOURCE OF FAT.
It contains oleocanthal which fights everything from Alzheimer’s to certain cancers. Olive oil has also been shown to fight the risk of heart disease.
4. EAT BEANS.
People who eat 2/3 of a cup per day can lower their LDL (bad) cholesterol by 5 percent. Peas, beans, and lentils are great sources.
5. WALNUTS ARE THE KING OF THE NUTS.
They are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids. Eat 2/3 of a cup per day.
6. IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO LOSE WEIGHT RELY ON PROTEIN AND FIBER.
Try for 30 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber at each meal.
7. DRINK GREEN TEA.
A cup of green tea at breakfast will help you avoid an energy crash later.
8. AIM FOR 1 GRAM OF PROTEIN PER POUND OF BODYWEIGHT EACH DAY.
If you’re looking to build muscle, lean cuts of beef, white meat chicken and eggs are great choices.
9. EAT FOODS RICH IN FIBER AND OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS.
They are your best guard against heart disease and hypertension. Foods like whole grains, pistachios and beets make the grade.
10. THE BEST FRUITS FOR FAT LOSS ARE BLUEBERRIES, APPLES, PRUNES AND PEARS.
Due to their high flavonoid content they burn more fat, reduce fat absorption and boost energy.
