6 Simple Tips for Perfect Six-Pack Abs


For many active people, six-pack abs represent the holy grail of athleticism. Why? Because six-pack abs are both rare and demonstrate a visible commitment to eating well and exercising regularly. They’re also incredibly sexy.

Unfortunately, it takes a lot of work to get your body to a place where abdominal muscles are visible. But there are a number of steps you can take to get this very attractive and enviable look…

 

1. Cook for Yourself

Here’s the problem with going out to eat all of the time: no matter how healthy a menu claims to be, you don’t really know what’s going into your food. A chef may claim to use all kinds of healthy ingredients, but they may also be adding lots of salt, oil, butter, sugar and other unhealthy items to your food.

That’s why it’s best to eat at home whenever possible. Cook your own meals using lots of fruits and vegetables and as little oil, salt, sugar and butter as possible. That way you can better monitor your food intake and inch closer to the six-pack abs you desire.
