Where are Abs REALLY made?

If you are anything like me, you workout till the cows come home but the stomach area stays put! The plan is to figure out why that is and how to correct it. I created a Pinterest board to help me get some pointers together and also a way to share with others who have the same problem. 






WHAT OTHERS SAY

Jen @thefithousewife.com talks about the same topic in this post. She has had 3 kids and shares how she was able to see her abs again. Clean eating is the way she suggests to go.


Keith @fitmole.org has a different opinion than Jen as you will see in this post. He feels that it is all about doing the right workouts to build those muscles.

Charlene Johnson shared this post about the 80/20 rule. She supports that abs are made in the kitchen. She recommends a way to track that you are not taking in more than you are burning.


DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?

This is where I am torn. I have done the clean eating and have had no change in my midsection. I also have been working out consistently for months and still look the same in the stomach. So where do we go from here?

Well, like Antranick says in his post, we be patient!! This weight didn't get put on overnight so why would it come off that fast.


PLAN OF ATTACK 

1. Install MyFitnessPal app to keep track of the calories going in.
2. Use Garmin/Fitbit to track calories burned.
3. No processed food.
4. Plenty of water/ no pop!
5. Continue workouts but don't stress if they don't work overnight.


* Do you have any suggestions or favorite trick to a six-pack?
