Simple Nutrition Tips For Sexy Abs

Your body fat level plays the biggest role in whether or not you have sexy abs to show off.
You can do all the ab exercises you want but if your abs are covered with a layer of fat, no one is going to see them no matter how developed they may be. So get your nutrition in order.

1. Don't Go Shopping Without A List
This is huge. You must know beforehand what you need to get at the grocery store for two big reasons.
If you don't, you'll end up making impulse buys of food you shouldn't have in the house.
Not if you want to stick to your nutrition program and show off your sexy abs.
By having a list you can go directly to the food items you need and avoid all the junk food areas that the store tries to make you walk through since these are high profit items.

2. Read Food Labels
You may be surprised what's in certain foods or how many calories are in a serving (a serving is NOT the entire bottle or bag).

3. Get Your Fruit
Besides all the myriad health benefits of fruit, it will also help to satisfy the sweet tooth that most of us have.

4. Eat Before You Go
Never go food shopping on an empty stomach. You'll end up buying a lot of things you wouldn't get otherwise.
Going food shopping while hungry is a great way to sabotage your health and fitness program.

5. Get Your Vegetables
Be sure to get a variety of veggies in different colors so you get a wide range of vitamins and minerals.

6. Get Your Protein
This can come in the form of chicken breasts, tuna (packed in water), turkey (not the lunch meat kind) or lean cuts of beef.

By following these six food shopping tips you'll make sure to have the right food in your house.
Not only will this help keep you on track and well on your way to sexy abs, you wont be able to binge on any junk food if your discipline does crumble.

You may eat too many calories but at least it will be nutritious calories and not empty ones that can cause a lot of health problems.
