The secret to getting a “six-pack” is DIETING!

If you ever want to see your “six pack” of abs, DIETING is the only way! Many people will dispute this, but I’m sorry, it’s the truth. No amount of crunches, ab gadgets or special hanging abdominal exercises will make your abs magically appear. You cannot spot reduce. In other words, you can’t burn abdominal fat simply by doing abdominal exercises. Your body doesn’t work that way.

Go to any auction site on the web and you will see hundreds of those fancy ab machines for sale. Why do you think that is? It’s because they don’t work. If they did, do you think people would be trying to get rid of them?

If fat is covering your abs, implementing a consistent fat loss diet, coupled with moderate exercise is the only way to reveal your “six-pack”. I used to work my abs almost everyday. Doing unusual and difficult exercises — trying to make them appear, but they never did.

It was not until I start dieting correctly that they finally began to reveal themselves. During my fat loss program, I only worked my abs by performing crunches (yes, regular crunches) 3 times per week, before my weight training session.

To be totally honest, 3 times a week was too much. Your abs are just like any other muscle, and technically should be worked no more than twice per week. Even though I know it’s not helping me, I still work my abs 3 times per week — it just makes me feel better (I’m human) — but no more than that.

No matter how many times I say this, it will not sink in with most people. They will still continue to look for that magical abdominal exercise, or secret product. Here’s the secret —

“Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym!”
