Tight, Toned Tummy Tips: Two key steps to success

There are really two things to consider when you're trying to get a tight, toned tummy

First, you have to build the musculature in your midsection to the point where it'll look like something. You do this through exercise. This part is like forming the giant cement blockto be sculpted.

Second, you have to take the body fat off that area of your body in order to be able to see the muscles. You do this through diet. This is the sculpting part.

Getting you tummy to look toned requires a low level of body fat

So low that many professional athletes don't even have visible abs all year round. So if you want to have a toned tummy at all times then you're going to have to get out the chisel (a seriously well-controlled diet) and keep at it for a good long time with dedication and discipline and effort.

Best tips to get you started:

  1. Eat a healthy, filling, fibre-rich breakfast. Fruit and nuts is a great option, so is a smoothie.
  2. Eat lots of vegetables. More than you ever thought possible. A big salad is a great choice for lunch.
  3. Drink lots of water. Lots.
  4. Don't eat junk food. EVER.
