Let me ask you two questions. First, how many sit ups have you done to date, but still not seen any visible signs of a six pack? Secondly, how many pieces of home gym equipment have you stored under the bed or in the garage that you didn’t touch after New Year’s Day?
The truth is that you gave up on these things a long time ago because they flat out do not work, am I right?
It’s the same reason overweight people jump from fad diet to fad diet every 3 months…and it’s the same reason that these fad diets generate billions in revenue from desperate people looking to lose weight. It’s also the same reason why every day, you see a new machine, patch, plan or “system” that promises you the best body ever without you doing anything.
It’s selling a dream that people simply buy into every time, without even thinking about it.
But just think about it for a second, if those fads actually worked, then why are so many new ones being released each day, week, month or year? If they truly worked, then there would be no need for new equipment or special diets would there?
All you need to know about getting a lean body and real six pack abs is to lower your overall body fat ratio to around 10%.
In order to do this, it’s all about raising your metabolic rate. This will allow you to burn fat alot faster than normal, even long after you’ve finished your actual exercise routine. This leads us to the question, which exercise routine should you focus on in order to raise your metabolic rate?
Well actually, there’s more than one type of exercise routine that you should be focusing on to achieve this, from cardio style routines to strength resistance to weights.
But what you must realize is that your physical form will be the result of a well informed eating plan. This does not mean a fad diet or avoiding fatty foods. It’s all about understanding food away from what the media wants you to believe.
Eating plans that a lower in carbs, higher in protein and allow for moderate intake in certain types of fats are the way forward.
But it’s not just the types of foods that you consume that make or breaks your physique; it’s also about your eating habits.
For example, instead of eating 3 set meals a day and feeling bloated after each one, try to break up your meals into several smaller portions throughout the day, which will help you to sustain your metabolism as a result.
I know that it’s all easier said than done, but I can assure you that once you settle into a comfortable routine that suits you, at not the magazines and fads, then you’ll naturally build momentum and motivation when you start to see your body shape up the way you wanted it to.
Mike Geary’s book, the Truth About Abs does a great job of getting you in the right mindset along with showing you exactly what you need to eat and how you need to spend your time working out in order to get an amazing lean body and gorgeous six pack abs.
