4. Exercise regularly
Muscle is metabolically active, i.e. it burns calories. If you lose muscle, your body’s demand for calories decreases, hence weight loss is harder. The best way to preserve muscle and give your body that attractive toned look is to train at least 3 times a week for around 45 minutes. Aim to complete 3 weight sessions per week and gradually add cardiovascular training (running /cycling /aerobics) to your regime (up to 2 - 3 times per week). This will increase the calories burnt and so increase fat loss that’s how to get abs.
2. Adopt the optimal eating pattern
To reduce hunger and speed up your metabolism, eat 5 to 6 small meals a day. Your calories for the day should be split between these regular meals. Skipping meals reduces your metabolic rate and allows your blood sugar levels to drop. A regular intake of high protein calories throughout the day combats this.
1. Create a calorie deficit To lose weight you need to consume fewer calories than your body needs to maintain weight, which creates a calorie deficit. To maximize your weight loss, the combination of a healthy ‘lower calorie’ diet and good exercise regime is vital. This will give you far faster results than that achieved by diet or exercise alone, this is how to get abs which pop out from your skin.
