Sample meal plan
If you’re going to put the effort into working out, you must eat better too, or it’s all for nothing. Here’s an example of a day’s worth of ab-friendly meals:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with cinnamon and agave, which is a natural sweetener that doesn’t make blood sugar spike. Sadly, you’re not allowed to sprinkle tequila on your oatmeal as an alternative.
Morning or post-workout snack: Whey protein shake with raw almond butter, cinnamon, 1/2-cup spinach, 1/3-cup oatmeal, and half of a banana. Alternatively, just grab a handful of raw cashews or almonds.
Lunch/dinner: Dark leafy greens (broccoli, spinach), veggies (pass on the potatoes) and some protein — don’t overeat protein though, since it’s hard for your body to process. Keep the serving to the size of your fist in diameter and as thick as a deck of cards.
Afternoon snack: Veggies and hummus or another handful of raw cashews or almonds
