HE BEST AB EXERCISE IS... stop eating so much crap!
I got your attention there, didn't I?! Everyone always wants to know what exercise they can do to flatten their abs. The truth is no ab exercise will give you flat abs; they come from a combination of burning fat through full body exercise AND eating the right foods regularly. When asked what it means to "eat clean", my simplest answer is always to stick to the perimeter of the grocery store. Your diet should mainly consist of fruits, vegetables, natural lean protein and whole grains. These are essentially limited to the produce and meat section of the grocery store (or what you can find at your local farmer market). Go to the grocery store next time with the goal to walk only the perimeter. How difficult that is for you will be a good gauge of how clean you regularly eat. Good Luck!
As always remember, YOU are STRONGER than you think!
Most people understand the importance of eating clean but clean living extends beyond your diet. Now lets think about those middle aisles of the grocery store for a minute, where you buy your laundry detergent, toothpaste, lotions, cleaning supplies, shampoo, the list goes on and on.... Did you know there are healthier, "cleaner" options for these products as well? Free of necessary fillers and harmful ingredients? That work better AND cost less? I shop online for all of these things through the largest online wellness company in North America. Through tomorrow (8/18) you can join the shopping club for only $1 (regularly $29).

In the fitness world we see protein supplement everywhere, how do you know if its right for you? Bottom line: you need 20-30 g of protein delivered to your muscles within 90 minutes of STARTING you workout. Typical whole food protein sources take some time to digest. After a 30-60 minute workout add another 60-90 min to digest, it just doesn't add up. Therefore, I recommend everyone use a protein supplement post workout for simple fast delivery of the necessary nutrients to your muscles. Whey protein is the fastest delivering while casein has a slower more sustained delivery. I use a blend of both (which, by the way, I buy from the same wellness company mentioned above) .
