I've read and heard so many articles, exercises, machines that say that if you do this or that you will get your abs.
Lastly I heard that you get your six or 8 pack in the kitchen more than in the gym, my sister went to a nutritionist and gave her a diet, my sister says that she starting seeing her abs in about 2 weeks, and at the time she wasnt working out. My question is, is this true? are abs made in the kitchen? If so, what is the best diet, what should you eat and what should you stay away from.
In my case I can say I am a bad example of healthy eating, I just turned 36 and for about 20 years I've had the bad habit of eating once a day, just a big lunch and nothing for the rest of the day. I am about 143lbs, 5'9 and for some reason I can loose about 3 lbs from one night to morning(I dont know how).
I am doing my best to change my habit, I started drinking a EAS protein shake(I got this at costco, 6lbs ) in the morning with a banana or some oatmeal(trust me this is a great improvement from just a glass of iced tea), because of my work I am required to eat on mid-level restaurants(Chilis, applebees, and some other places that are not that healthy) and for some reason I have the need to order something large from the menu. When I dont eat outside I try to get something which I think is healthy like a subway tuna foot long sub or a black forest ham sub, I eat it in one seating, although I am trying my best to just eat half around lunch and the second half around 4pm.
On the weekends I eat pasta and I try to add tuna to make it seem healthy, but Im thinking on jumping on to Salmon and broccoli.
Exercise: I try to exercise but time is not on my side, I have a set of free weights, and bench press in my house and I try to follow a 30-minute chest workout from my I-fitness Iphone application. But sometimes after a 12 work day you are too tired to work out.
I am trying to get some cardio(about 30 minutes on the elliptical machine, about twice a week)
