The number one thing you want to limit over the holiday festivities is ALCOHOL! It’s easy to get carried away with drinking, but all that sugar will quickly set you back.
Portion control will be very important. You want to enjoy some delicious food, but you have to avoid over eating. Try limiting your calorie intake so it doesn’t go through the roof!
High-volume, low-calorie foods like broccoli and cabbage are typically withheld from muscle-building diets as they can cause the early onset of satiety and fullness, which makes hitting a high-calorie target harder. But withholding broccoli and other vegetables that are members of the cruciferous family is a mistake, because they provide a hormonal advantage by reducing estrogen.
These kinds of vegetables, especially broccoli, contain several unique antioxidants and compounds that can help to improve your health in a variety of different ways, not limited to fighting cancer. Indole-3-carbinol and D-glucaric acid are two other nutrients found in cruciferous vegetables that aid in clearing excessive estrogen and toxins from your body.
No secret for getting those six pack abs! No pills or special workouts or waist trimmers are going to help. We always look for the short cut or any loop hole to get the mid section we’ve always wanted, but at the end of the day it comes down to your DIET!
A good and healthy balanced diet, along with effective training, will allow you to lose body fat and THEN you will start seeing a difference in your stomach region. As your body fat drops, your abs become more visible.
Core training will help develop and strengthen your mid section, but at the end of the day you won’t see them unless you bring down your body fat.
