  • NEED bikini abs

    Hi, all. I'm 21 and work full-time. I don't have much time to exercise or much money to join a gym. It's currently cold here in NYC, so outdoor sports are limited. How can I get in shape? I really want flat abs instead of this pouchy skin at the base of my belly. How can I change this?

    Also, any advice on my diet? I eat chicken and carrots every day, which is good. I also incorporate fruits like tangerines and apples and mandarins. But I live on Larabars (sometimes 3 a day) and Starbucks bottled Frappuccinos (2 per day). I need the coffee to stay awake, and I have a major sweet tooth.

    Can anyone provide any advice and/or direction?

    Thanks!

      Abs are made more in the kitchen than the Gym.For them to show you have to remove the fat from your belly. Keep it simple, cut the carbs and work on any ab routine you can find on the net, Planks are a good start. You can hit your abs every day too. You don't need a gym, you just need the drive to do it.

      Good luck

        A) You burn more calories in the cold so, get outside. If that fails, do pushups.
        B) What kind of chicken? Always breasts? Carrots are good for you but if you're primarily concerned with weight loss there are better vegetables to eat. At least mix it up.
        C) Yes, stop, and I mean STOP drinking 2 Starbucks bottled Frappuccinos/day and STOP eating 3 Larabars/day. You can have some black coffee with some real cream and small amount of real sugar but the fraps are loaded with calories. Also, if you're eating 3 larabars/day you should be eating something real instead of the larabars.

        As you cut out sugar, you will get rid of your sweet tooth.

            I just jogged in Central Park two weeks ago. I was far from the only one out there.

            And from past experience if your fitness goal is related to vanity (your abs) you probably aren't going to stick with it.

            If you really want abs, ditch the crappy, sugar laden food, buy some outdoor workout gear and get to it. There is no magic pill, no magic diet, no magic workout.

              The only way to get bikini abs is to sit in a tub of cold water for 2 hours a day and eat nothing but white potatoes that have been cooked then cooled.

                I forgot about that method. My apologies.

                  Don't forget the iodine.

                    I thought this was a safe place to ask questions and get help. Thanks for mocking and bashing me.

                      You know what's wrong with your diet, and you don't sound willing to change those things. What sort of advice were you expecting?

                        Sorry, but it definitely sounds like all you want is a magic diet that will give you the body of a magazine model. If so, you are not living a healthy lifestyle.

                        If you actually want to be healthy - inside and out - then do as others said. Read between the lines of the comments above: cut out the crappy pre-packaged pre-made "food" and read the Primal Blueprint. Choose health over a fad diet.

                        You're 128 pounds and 5 foot 7 inches... a perfectly fine (even a little low) weight for someone your height. If you're "skinny fat" (you're thin, but you have a high body fat % and little muscle mass), cut out the garbage... as we've already said. Drink black coffee for your caffeine. Replace Lara Bars with fruit and veggies.

                        Again... read the Primal Blueprint.

                        And for what it's worth... women are meant to have a little pooch below the belly-button; it's to keep our womb warm and protected when we carry babies. I doubt your flat-tummy airbrushed magazines will tell you that.

                          Before or after implementing the leptin reset protocol?

                            Also... nobody NEEDS "bikini abs". And... what exactly are "bikini abs" anyway?

                              I thought this was a safe place to recommend cold thermogenesis and extreme all-potato resistant starch diets. Thanks for belittling and mocking me!
