The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…and the way to a man’s abs is through the kitchen. Not all carbs are evil. It’s the simple, white carbs that you want to avoid. Whole grains (aka “slow carbs”) are rich in fiber and go through your system much more slowly (hence the name) than simple, refined carbs (the white ones). So don’t shy away from the browns -brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat and oats.
Getting six pack abs isn’t necessarily about counting calories. But you do need to get rid of the fat on top of your abs to expose the muscles underneath them — and eating a bit less will get you on track. Eating any breakfast was associated with increased feelings of fullness, a reduced desire to eat, and lower levels of ghrelin (a hunger-stimulating hormone) throughout the morning. But a protein-packed breakfast was associated with these benefits over the course of the entire day.
