There are many special abs diet recipes around, and most consist for the most part of high protein foods such as lean meat, fish, eggs and high fiber foods.
This is because these are the foods that are required to assist your fat burning and muscle building body sculpturing process.
Special abs diet recipes need not be boring at all. You can mix and match many different types of foods, and you certainly do not need to get bored eating the same foods over and over again.
When it comes to building abs muscles, your diet plays a larger part than you think.
People think doing a few sit-ups and other exercises each day will help them to gradually transform into a living breathing six pack. Nothing could be further from the truth!
In fact, your diet plays an extremely large part in whether or not your body will burn enough fat and gain enough muscle to give your stomach the washboard look that you so desire. If you have discipline to stick to good eating habits, you will reach your goal.
As a budding abdominal builder, you need to consume a large amount of fresh vegetables. This makes an abs diet recipe so easy, as vegetables can be added to any meal.
One of my favorite meals is a simple grilled fish, topped in garlic and a hint of lemon juice. On the side I have some steamed broccoli, carrots, peas, beans and corn.
It is an entirely satisfying and filling meal and something you can eat every single day (although it is only recommended that you eat fish a maximum three times per week) without worrying about calories.
Fish is a bodybuilder’s best friend, and we consume a lot of it. Fish can be cooked in many different ways, so you need not grow bored of the same abs diet recipe.
I do prefer to grill my fish as it does not require any additives such as oil.
Never and I mean never, consume deep fried fish if you are serious about your abs and your body as a whole – needless to say any deep fried, fatty junk food will put your gym routine on a backwards route pretty quickly!
Abs diet recipes are extremely easy to prepare and will do wonders for your gym workouts – you will feel more energized and you will see faster results on your abs if you stick to your meal plans.
