Abs start in the kitchen. You can work out every day and build up your ab muscles, but if you snack on junk food all day long, you aren’t going to get rid of belly fat. Cut out processed foods. Consume unprocessed, whole foods. You don’t have to be perfect though. Some studies suggest that eating junk food will help you to lose fat by keeping your hormones sharp but don’t overdo things. Your junk food consumption should be kept to a max of 10%. This means that if eat six meals each day then you should only have four junk meals each week.
