Lots of people would like to know how to get defined abs, but do not really know where to start. They search the internet and end up finding the latest diet craze or gadget that promises quick results with little effort. It winds up costing a lot of money because you either need to replenish your supply of pills, buy expensive foods or the next gadget on the market.
I am about to tell you the truth about how to get defined abs and it only requires a commitment and a change of lifestyle. No matter what the latest ads tell you, you can not get great looking abs without a little sweat equity and a change in your eating habits. (Ask the models that are used in the advertisements). You need to work at getting those flat, sexy abs you want, but it does not mean that you need to spend all your free time working out and exercising.
The real way to get defined abs is to spend as much time as you can do workouts that will burn the most calories in the least amount of time. Do not waste your energy doing endless situps and crunches. These "spot reducing" exercises will only serve to make your abs stronger, but will not burn the layer of fat covering them. The only way to tone your stomach is to work all of your body, not just your abs. By doing it this way, you will get much quicker results, usually in as little as 7-8 weeks.
Combining a good workout with better eating habits will maximize your efforts even further and get you on the way to looking slimmer and sexier in much less time. It does not mean that you have to give up everything you love to eat, but you need to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables, along with leaner meats in your day to day meal plan. Give up the three big meals and opt for 5-6 smaller meals spread out through the day to boost your metabolism and burn those calories.
