Many people seem to think that they can perform countless reps of crunches and that will enable them to burn off belly fat and see that 6-pack of abs.
I’m here to tell you that theory is a myth.
Is is stictly my opinion that the only way to lose body fat and see that elusive 6-pack is through a strict diet.
It is very simple to understand:
If you are eating lots of carbohydrates, dairy, junk food and then expect to lose fat through high repetition training you’re soundly mistaken.
Eating is the whole key here. If you eat clean and train then you will drop the unwanted fat and see the hard earned muscle.
Here is an exact excerpt from my personal journal on my body (I take notes on how I feel/look on days of different eating plans and training).
“Friday the 13th of july I got up had a dark coffee and then a protein shake. After my workout I had another high calorie protein shake followed and hour later with some eggs and turkey bacon.
I had another shake in mid afternoon then had my dinner. Dinner consisted of lots of greens and lean steak. I then followed this plan for saturday and sunday. By cutting out my normal weight gain foods such as whole milk, breads, cheese and pasta I was not bloated, not uncomfortably full and by sunday my abs were much more visible. Sunday the 15th my abs were the most visible they have been since before I started my weight gain diet back in april.”
