You can’t eat excess carbs, junk food and loads of processed food and expect to have that sculpted look. Quite simply, you can’t “work off” a bad diet and expect to look like a fitness model.

To see your abs you have to be somewhat lean.  Food options to consider are whole, natural, and organic, those free of chemicals and fillers.  Of course pre-packaged meals are convenient, but in the long run, they don’t do anything for your physique, and the chemicals that are in them get lodged in your fat stores since the body can’t process them.  Over time they gather, add up, and just increase your body fat level.

Best Foods To Choose

Great foods to include to get lean and to help sharpen your abs are protein for building purposes such as chicken, turkey, red meat, and let’s not forget about fish such as salmon. Other food choices are non-starchy vegetables that help to burn fat such as broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, green beans, etc.

General Meal Plan for Washboard Abs

  • Meal 1: 4 egg whites and 1 yolk,  1/2 cup of oatmeal (measured dry)
  • Meal 2: Protein shake mixed in water, add ice (fruit may be added)
  • Meal 3: Baked fish with dill weed and sea salt for flavor. A side salad consisting of romaine lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and red onion. For dressing you can use balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil
  • Meal 4: ½ – 1 cup of fat-free cottage cheese with berries
  • Meal 5: Protein shake (post-workout)
  • Meal 6: Seasoned chicken breast, 1-2 cups of steamed broccoli

As a bonus diet tip, you can have as many veggies as you like since they are extremely low in carbs and they are actually one of the foods that burns body fat since they are so high in fiber and low on the glycemic index (GI).
