The world's most popular beer, Budweiser, contains 145 calories per 12 fl. oz serving! That means you would have to run a mile and a half just to work off the beer from one can of Bud. If you're drinking 3 beers a day... that's 4.5 miles of running! And this doesn't take into account all the other junk food you're probably eating along with it!
Still, don't give up all hope on getting that six pack. It may seem like an impossible task at first, but with some dedication and perseverance - it can be done! We'll show you how in this blog post around healthy eating and regular exercise to get a six-pack.
You don't need to do hundreds of crunches.
You don’t need to do hundreds of crunches. Crunches are a popular ab exercise, but they work only one muscle group. You also need to target the muscles surrounding your abdominal area, such as oblique and transverse abdominis muscles.
Do planks in your lunch break or when you get home from work
Try sitting on an incline bench or chair with your feet flat on the floor and bend forward so that only the back of your legs remain in contact with it (you should be at about a 45-degree angle). Hold this position for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times if you want more resistance, or until you feel tired (i.e., can't hold yourself up anymore) if you're just starting out on this exercise.
Cut down on sugary and alcoholic stuff.
Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it makes you pee more. This can make you hungry, and then you eat more. Alcohol also has a lot of calories, so drinking too much will make you fat.
Sugary drinks are no good for your belly either. They are full of sugar and empty calories, which are the worst kind of calories because they don't fill you up or give your body any nutrition at all! If sugary drinks were good for us we'd be able to eat them all day every day without gaining weight or getting sick! Sugar also raises insulin levels in our bodies faster than anything else we eat (except maybe fat), which causes us to store fat as well as other nasty things like heart disease and diabetes. The more sugary drinks that find their way into your system over time, the worse off your health will be in general - not just around the waistline either!
Eat nutrient rich foods.
If you want to get rid of your beer belly, you need to eat nutrient-rich foods. These are foods that are high in nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Nutrient rich foods include:
Protein: fish, beans and lentils
Fruits and vegetables (five servings per day)
Whole grains (breads & pasta)
Foods to avoid:
These include processed food such as white bread and white flour products like cookies, cakes and pastries because they lack the nutritional value of whole grain products. Also avoid sugar-packed drinks such as soda pop or energy drinks; instead drink water with lemon juice for added flavour or freshly squeezed fruit juices if you like sweetened drinks.
Clean your cupboards and fridge of unhealthy foods.
To start, clean your cupboards and fridge of unhealthy foods. You don't need to throw everything away, but you should get rid of the junk food (and I mean all of it). Don't bring in any more junk food either; if you're going to eat something bad for you, buy it beforehand so that it's not there on hand when temptation strikes.
Next, try eating balanced meals with a variety of foods: vegetables/fruit at each meal (at least one serving), protein at every second meal (at least half a serving), whole grains at every third meal (a quarter serving) and healthy fats like avocado or nuts as an occasional snack. Cooking more at home is also helpful since this allows you to control portion sizes better than when eating out or ordering takeout would make possible.
Drink plenty of water during the day; if possible try avoiding caffeinated beverages after noon as these can dehydrate you and make cravings worse by reducing levels in your body's serotonin levels which helps regulate moods among other things
Don't be afraid of carbs.
While carbs are an important part of any healthy diet, they must be consumed in moderation. Avoid refined sugars and eat plenty of complex carbohydrates like whole grains. These foods provide the body with energy and help to build muscle mass, which can boost your metabolism.
Do some cardio.
Cardio is a great way to burn fat, but it's not the only way. You can also gain muscle by doing resistance training. That said, cardio should be part of your workout routine. Running or cycling are two good options that can easily be done at home or outside. Try to do 30 minutes per session three times a week, or if you have poor knees and joints like me then try interval training instead where you alternate between high-intensity activities with low intensity activities like walking or biking slowly around your neighborhood.
The best time to do cardio is immediately after waking up in the morning before breakfast because this will get rid of any excess water weight which may slow down fat loss efforts later on in the day when we eat meals containing carbohydrates like pasta and breads that cause insulin spikes which makes us store more fat than usual!
In order to get a six pack, you don’t need to do hundreds of sit-ups. You need to cut down on sugary and boozey things, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables and do a bit more exercise.
There's a lot of confusion about what it takes to get a six pack. While many people would like to think that it's just about doing hundreds of sit-ups, the truth is that you need to change your diet and lifestyle as well.
Here are some tips:
Aerobic exercise is good for weight loss. You burn more calories when you do aerobic exercises than when you do other kinds of workouts, such as weight lifting or high intensity interval training (HIIT). If you have time in your busy schedule, try doing 30 minutes of running at least three times per week on average.
HIIT helps build core strength so that your midsection looks leaner and tighter even if your overall weight hasn't changed much yet—which means less work needed later on! If this sounds appealing but still feels too complicated right now then I recommend trying some calisthenics with weights instead since they're much simpler while still providing good results over time!
The best way to improve your health is by eating plenty fruits and vegetables each day; ideally one should eat these foods at every meal but if this isn't possible then try incorporating them into every meal instead."
If you have made it this far then I think you will agree that what we have talked about here is not rocket science. Eat better and exercise more and your body will start to improve!
