Abs are made in the kitchen. That’s a popular phrase going around the fitness world these days.

Well, it sounds nice, but it really isn’t true (unless you have some really weird home gym set-up).

The truth is, your abs are still made in the gym from the exercises you do. But your abs certainly can be defined by what you do in the kitchen in terms of nutrition.

After all, you can do all the ab-building exercises you want, but if you aren’t eating for fat loss, then you are never going to see your abs.

So is your nutrition good enough to get the job done?

If not, what’s your excuse? Not enough time, right? Or on the go too much, and your options are a greasy cheeseburger or a slice of pizza?

Well let me tell you, nutrition planning is one of the keys to fat loss. If you don’t plan ahead, don’t expect to burst through any fat loss plateaus any time soon.

And that’s why today, Sunday, is the answer to the problem. Because today, assuming you work a M-F job, you have the time to plan your meals, go to the grocery store, and prepare your meal plan for the week.

And don’t tell me this is too much work. You can easily accomplish this in 2 hours. One hour to get to the grocery store and back, and the other hour to prepare your meat and vegetables for the rest of the week.

Abs can be yours if you are consistent.
