It's a fact: abdominals are made in the kitchen; 70% diet, 30% exercise will get you ready to strut your stuff in one of Eve's skimpy outfits. Contrary to popular belief, performing millions of crunches will not get you lingerie-worthy abs. Yes those crunches are strengthening your abdominals, but if there's a layer of fat on top of them, your hubby won't get to see them! Here are 3 rules to fast-track your exercise results and get you in lingerie sooner:
- Eat a balanced diet consisting of lean protein, healthy fats, whole grains, and lots of fruits and veggies. Great choices: Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts, turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread with a slice of part-skim cheese, banana and peanut butter with celery, oatmeal with fruit and nuts.
- Incorporate high intensity interval training into your regime. Sprint for 30 seconds followed by 60 seconds (or longer) of recovery at a moderate-intensity pace. HIIT stimulates HGH during and after your workout!
- Drink lots of water! It helps move things along so you're not bloated in this (insert image of your lingerie), keeps skin and hair glowing, and hydrates you.
