Get Outta The Kitchen!

NO DOUBT nutrition is uber-important in the grand scheme of things, but if you’re never training that mid-section, you’re never really gonna have abs.  We’re not talking just superficial crunches here, but whole-body core strength and muscle recruitment (more on whole-body strength in another post).  Abs are muscles, too, and they need fuel and regular work to bring out their form.

“Low-Calorie diets make it nearly impossible to build any significant muscle and ultimately leave you spinning your wheels.  People who subscribe to these diets also experience lower energy, poor sleep, decreased performance, and potentially a bad relationship with food.  Not a great formula for a strong-looking core.”
-M. Millner

Abs Are NOT Made in The Kitchen by Mike Millner

“While dieting and eating correctly is an absolutely crucial part of the six pack process, it may not be as important as you once thought.
Abs are not made by dieting, they are REVEALED by dieting.
And if you don’t have the proper tools in place (i.e. well developed ab muscles), then all the dieting in the world won’t give you a nice pair of abs.”

    Wow! This is really speaking to me this morning. I was just told by a very fit person this exact thing, that abs are made in the kitchen. I just started a program through my health insurance company that supplies a health coach and it is based on counting calories. Of course tracking what you eat is eye opening and important, but it is only a piece of the puzzle. I really liked this statement from the second article, “Abs are not made by dieting, they are REVEALED by dieting.” From being a person who went from no abs, to 6 pack, and back to no abs (maybe they are there but certainly are hidden lol), it takes a lot of dedication and work to achieve this “look”. Proper diet, proper training, and lots of planning and preparation are required. CF was a main reason I was previously able to reach my fitness goals, and I know CF will be paramount in being able to do that once again. Thank you for sharing this!

    Thanks, Anthony! Yes, I agree fully that diet is important, and it’s a huge part of overall fitness and health, but 100% agree with the sentiment that abs are revealed through diet. If you’ve got no muscle mass to speak of, you’ll never have popping abs. Glad you enjoyed it!
