If you have ever read a fitness magazine...
If you have ever watched TV ads about latest machines that will magically reveal your abs...
If you have ever gone to a gym and saw tens of people lying on floor doing crunches....
then beware because chances are you are a victim of two biggest abdominal training hoaxes!
Myth No: 1
Just doing some midsection exercises can reduce your "love handles".
You cannot reduce fat from a certain targeted area of your body just by using exercise alone.
And abdominal area is no exception.
So if you want to get a flat stomach and to reveal your abs, losing fat covering them is way to go.
And only way to do this is to lose fat proportionately from your entire body by burning more calories than you consume.
How? By doing these two things:
1) Have a healthy and balanced permanent diet: dark green vegetables, fresh fruits, whole wheat and whole grain products, non-fat dairy products, fish, poultry breast, lean red meat, egg white.
Yes, you should cut out all sugar, soda, non-whole grain products and saturated fats: these aliments should only be a reward for achieving a goal, not a habit!
2) Start exercising
Aerobic and weight training will raise your metabolic rate. In result, your body will burn more calories.
