There is a famous quote that says “Charity begins at home.” There are many programs on the internet which say they will give you great abs. If you want those “six pack” abs, the easiest place to look is in your home.

Here three simple things you should do at home that can lead to those six pack abs:

1. Look in your kitchen

Good recipes get good results. The secret of getting flat abs is reducing your body fat by at least ten percent. Your meals should regularly include high quality protein along with mono- and polyunsaturated fats. Mono- and polyunsaturated fats are found in olive oil, fish oil, nuts, avocados, and coconut milk to name just a few.

You will get high quality protein in various milks as well as in chicken, fish and tofu. High quality protein helps build up muscles along with helping you feel fuller after eating. Unsaturated fats help your insulin levels remain steady so your body will burn fat throughout the day.

2. Eat healthy food

There is nothing wrong with eating tasty food. But, there’s nothing wrong with eating tasty food that is healthy, too. It’s as easy as making a few simple modifications to your diet. For example, eat whole grain breads instead of white breads.

Avoid white sugar or artificial sweeteners while increasing your consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Stay away from sodas (even diet sodas) and drink water instead. If you can’t completely do away with any of these, reducing how much you take in can be beneficial, too.

3, Create an exercise program

Diet and exercise go hand-in-hand to creating flat, healthy abs. Exercise is needed to burn down stomach fat. Resistance weight training exercises help to flatten abs by burning fat calories while building up muscle tone. These exercises are better (and less painful) than the old fashioned crunches, sit-ups, etc.

Getting and keeping flat abs is not an easy task. However, if you create an intense resistance weight training program along with maintaining a healthy diet, you should see fantastic results.
