10 Best Kept Secrets to a Lean Midsection

10 Best Kept Secrets to a Lean Midsection

I want to let you in on my secrets to maintaining a lean midsection. My “method” has pretty much stayed the same over the years and I have had very little fluctuation in my midsection…so I would love to share! Although I have a fairly lean midsection, I am only human, and I blow up when that “time” rolls around and after I eat a big meal. Please understand that the fitness photos you see (of myself and others) were probably taken early in the morning or on an empty stomach in order to get the most “defined” look possible. Regardless of how lean someone is, you can not maintain such abdominal definition at all times of day, everyday! Here are my key secrets: Eat within 20 minutes after I wake up Perform cardio exercise (30 minute HIIT) 20 minutes after I eat in the morning if possible Perform at least 3 (30 minute HIIT) cardio sessions per week Do not eat any “white” foods (no white rice, bread, potato, pasta, etc) Use Stevia in place of sugar (in cooking and baking) Eat 5-6 meals per day and eat a LOW GLYCEMIC DIET Drink more than 64 fluid oz of water ( I drink a minimum of 4 L/ 135 oz per day) No fruit drinks or energy drinks (I use True Lemon instead of crystal light) Drink coffee (if necessary) with Stevia and nonfat/dairy free creamer Perform a 5-10 minute abdominal floor routine at least 5 days/week with little to no rest during the routine. I perform my routines after my dinner has fully digested, while watching TV....

Harmful Ways to Lose Weight

There are a number of ways to lose weight that can be detrimental to your mental and physical health. I feel the need to address this issue because a lot of people are creating more harm than good to their bodies in an attempt to lose weight. I have known a few people that have struggled with unhealthy means of weight loss and I do not wish their terrible long term effects on my worst enemy. THE LOW CALORIE/NO CALORIE DIET- Anorexia is such a prevalent disorder among teenagers, as well as many others. Our bodies need fat and calories for fuel, and lack of food can lead to many major problems. Without the proper nutrients, the body will eventually go into organ failure. As a means of restricting calories, many people will latch onto the artificial sweeteners in order to consume food and beverages. Artificial sweetener is a whole other beast, but you should stay away from it as much as possible. I suggest using Stevia in the Raw or raw sugar in moderation. STICK WITH NATURAL! SKIPPING MEALS- Many people skip meals in an attempt to consume less daily calories in hopes that leads to weight loss. Eating fewer meals throughout the day will actually SLOW DOWN your metabolism and lead to weight gain. If you are eating a low glycemic (high protein and fiber) diet, then the more meals you consume throughout the day, the better! You have to eat to lose! PURGING- This is a fancy word for making yourself throw up. You may have heard of Bulimia, which is the eating disorder that involves binging (eating a...
