Weight & Fat Loss | Ab fat help


Hey, I'm looking to lose a tiny bit of ab fat and I think I'll be ready for a 6 pack. I'm looking to lose about 1/4 fat on my upper ab region and about 1 inch on the lower ab. I need some help with my sides too, maybe 1 inch or so. So I'm pretty healthy already I'm wondering what I need to do to lose that little extra bit of flab around my abs.Thanks for the help.

Hi there,

Please note that you cannot spot reduce, you need to combine exercise and nutrition to get rid of body fat.

Please look at our weight loss guide and try out a circuit program from our program section. Also, try eating from this grocery list:

Tips to know:

1. Have 6-7 meals per day
2. Have small meals with protein, good fats, fruits, vegetables and fibre at every meal.
3. Eat high GI carbohydrates ONLY after a workout.
4. Spend 40 minutes every Sunday preparing and planning meals for the week. It will REALLY help with spending and your stomach.
5. Make / Buy protein bars and greens plus.
6. Some supplements to note are: Creatine, Iso-Whey, Greens Plus, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamin, green tea and coffee.
7. Stay hydrated with water all day long. It helps carry body fat out of your body.

Keep up your active lifestyle and try making a few small nutritional changes and you'll lose that fat in no time.

Try to make yourself a self-contract (http://www.myfit.ca/self-contract.html) and make sure you keep track of your progress in a workout log (http://www.myfit.ca/personal_training_guide.asp)

Good luck training my friend,

PT.
