Foods To Avoid If You Want To Build A SIX Packs
A larger part of this seems to boil down on food; eating the right kind of foods.
There are some foods that you must avoid if you want six pack abs. Generally, we tend to consume these foods out of laziness and availability, but you can’t be careless when you’re working on your six packs because it takes consistency and discipline. We have done our research and found these common foods as a must “avoid” if you want to wear a Six Pack someday. They are as follows:
Heavy Starchy Foods : Commonly found in our local swallow foods like (Fufu, garry, pounded yam etc), and other heavy carbs can make it almost impossible to achieve. Worse is when you eat these foods late at night when metabolism is low due to the body not being actively engaged in any physical activity. Consider other lighter substitutes for carbohydrate to achieve this making sure you eat them in good time as well.
Whole milk : This is another food like the above. To build abs you need to cut down on calories. So consume low fat milk and avoid whole milk due to its high calories.
Sausage: This again is a processed food and rich in calories and fats. Stay away from processed meats like bacon, sausages and salami if you want toned and defined abs.
Ice cream: Many people like ice cream because it is sweat, it creates a sense of fun, it helps to cool off. But it can prevent you from building abs. Ice cream is rich in calories, artificial sweeteners and flavours which are a-no-go Six Packs.
Donuts: Donuts are unhealthy as they contain refined sugar and flour. It makes you gain weight by storing fat.
Margarine: This is cheaper than butter, but margarine is unhealthy and makes you gain weight. It is rich in calories and is closely linked to cholesterol related health problems.
Processed cheese: Fresh organic cheese is preferred to processed cheese if you want some Six Pack. It lacks nutritional value, contains fats, salts and an overload of calories. Same applies to Peanut butter. It is one of the best foods you can consume if you want to build muscle, due to its high protein content. It is also great as post workout snack. But totally avoid commercial peanut butter as they are usually packed; ready-to-eat, rich in fats, calories and additives.
Diet foods: In order to build muscle, it is important to have a balanced diet which includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Diet foods and diet meal plans prevent you from consuming a balanced diet. Plus there is an urge to consume far more calories when you are on a diet.
Refined flour: Unlike organic wholegrain flour, refined flour lacks nutritional value. Refined flour increases your sugar levels and increases the storage of fat in the body and that makes efforts to build Six Pack a very difficult one.
High Sugar Cereals: Breakfast cereals that have additional flavours and artificial sweeteners should also be avoided, they only increase weight. Instead, eat wholegrain healthy cereals.
Trans Fat: Trans fat is LDL and increases fat in your body. An easy way to consume this is through fast food. It makes chances of developing abs difficult and increases chances of developing heart problems and obesity together with lack of exercise.
Crackers: Crackers are recommended for good digestion, but they are prepared with refined flour and sugar, both of which are not good for building muscle.
