We all want to look like a superhero with our shirt off. There are very few visual cues quite like showing off a shredded set of abdominals. Rocking a six pack is a huge ego boost and is guaranteed to get you attention whether you are male or female. There is a reason a cut stomach is such an effective attention getter – they are tough to get and therefore relatively rare. A six-pack takes not only a significant amount of exercise and physical effort, but it also requires smart eating and self-control.
Here at Evolve Daily, we have already covered stomach blasting exercises, as well as what foods you should try and focus on to get cut, but there is still one more critical piece to this puzzle – the foods you need to avoid if you want to reveal those stomach muscles. You could have a firm stomach and could be eating all the foods we suggested, but if you don’t remove specific items from your diet, you will never get the sexy definition you seek.
High-calorie and carbohydrate foods are of course on this list, but there may be a few that surprise you. So without further ado, here is our list of the six pack killing foods you need to avoid:
1) The Wrong Health Foods
We need to have a quick chat about certain “health foods” that may be keeping that extra fat on your stomach. Certain bodies will process these differently, so if you are eating any of these items try to cut them out for a month or two and see if you notice any significant changes in how you look.
Dairy products like whole milk and Greek yogurt. These very often can hinder your ability to look cut. Though the protein content is high, they won’t get you to where you need to go.
Fruits such as bananas. I know this may sound a bit crazy, but fruits are not the healthiest thing you could be eating if you want to shed weight. They are packed with sugars and often bring negative returns. Though we recommend apples for their negative calorie count, all fruit (mainly due to their inherent sugar) should be eaten in moderation.
Protein bars. Though it is essential to get the right amount of protein into your diet, protein bars are often the worst way to do it. So many are packed with sugar and carbohydrates. There are a few exceptions, but they are few and far between.
