Get Those Sexy Abs At Home And Save On Gym Membership Fees
There are thousands of ways to get those sexy washboard abs you’ve always longed for. With so many home workout routines like the p90x and the hip hop abs fitness program, it’s getting easier every day. Most of these workouts place a great emphasis on eating right and diet plays a big part in your weight loss odyssey. In this article, we would look at an ancient Indian art of self-feeding called Ayurveda which is a good supplementary diet and can be followed with whatever training plan you are following.
Ayurveda has been around for thousands of years and has its origins in India. Basically it is a holistic system of curing diseases using healthy foods and some ancient herbs (most of which are commonly available or can be replaced by other ingredients). The basic motto of Ayurveda is to lead a healthy life of well-being without the need for external medical help and concentrating only on proper nutrition. Basically ‘ayur’ means life and ‘Veda’ means knowledge and therefore the term Ayurveda means ‘knowledge of life’.
The whole concept of Ayurveda revolves around the fact that our body consists of five natural elements: air, fire, water, earth and space. Ayurveda gurus believed that these elements are present in every part of our natural environment, including our food. Therefore, by eating something that has the proper ratio of these elements, we can stay fit and healthy without having to wait for conventional medicine. Therefore, the use of the Ayurvedic diet is beneficial for those undergoing a fitness program as it is one of the most balanced forms of diet available today.
Aside from Ayurveda, there are specific diets that have been designed to give your abs the kick you’ve always wanted. The most common strategy adopted by most health instructors around the world is to introduce 5 or 6 smaller meals and eliminate 3 large meals. Sometimes snacking is good and there is practically no hunger involved in such diets. The basic principle that these diets revolve around is that they make you feel full throughout the day, but in reality, you end up consuming fewer calories than you would if you had followed your 3-meal diet plan. The six meals are planned so that you have three main meals, as usual, and have a snack 2 hours before each meal. With this setting, you won’t feel hungry throughout the day, and snacks and meals are designed in such a way that you won’t end up bloating with calories.
Most of these meals revolve around lean protein – turkey, duck, and chicken are some of the most common lean meats available. Fish is also a good snack option, as it contains a large reserve of “good” cholesterol levels, which are great for your heart’s well-being. You can include negative calorie foods like cucumber, watermelon, and apples in your snacks and combine them with soy-based foods to make a delicious sandwich salad.
