5 Things You MUST Understand

 if You’re Ever Going to Lose Your Abdominal Fat & Get a Flat Stomach

1. The Ab Workout Myth

Did you know that abdominal exercises such as situps, crunches, leg raises, and abs
machines are actually the LEAST effective exercises for getting 6-pack
abs?  It’s true… ab-specific exercises DO NOT burn stomach fat, nor do
they train a large enough percentage of your full body muscle to stimulate your
metabolism or a fat-burning effect.

2.  The Diet Food Myth

Did you know that many of the “diet foods” at your grocery store that are
marketed to you as “health foods” can actually increase belly fat
storage?  While these companies use clever marketing strategies to fool
you into thinking that many of their foods are healthy, in fact, some of them
are really junk food in disguise!

I bet you thought soy products were healthy, or that most “whole grain”
products were good for you too?  Think again!

3.  The Abdominal Machine Myth

Most of the ab machines, ab-lounge gadgets, ab-rockers, abs belts, and other
info-mercial “abdominizer” gimmicks are all a TOTAL WASTE of your
money (and your time).

I know that these advertisements showed fitness models with perfect bodies using
these “ab contraptions”, but I guarantee you that these fitness
models did NOT get their perfect bodies by using any bogus ab belts or
loungers.  They got their perfect bodies by following strategic full body
workout programs and being consistent and dedicated to good wholesome

4.  The Fat Burner Diet Pill Myth

Stop wasting money on bogus “fat burning” diet pills supplements.  To
be honest, most diet pills are pure garbage and won’t even help you to lose
body fat any faster.

5.  The Cardio Exercise Myth

Most people think it’s a “fact” that you need hours and hours of
cardio exercise routines each week to lose body fat.  This is simply NOT

I’m not saying that it doesn’t take some hard work, but what I am saying is that
there are more effective styles of workouts that produce faster results
than doing your typical boring long-duration cardio workout.

So what does work to get rid of stomach fat permanently and get flat abs?? Stay tuned for multimedia answers. 😉
