Abs are made in the kitchen

We hear this saying a lot “abs are made in the kitchen”.

But what does it really mean?

And is it even true?

Are abs made in the kitchen?

In a sense yes!

A six pack or abs are made in the kitchen.

Let me explain why…

Without a lean, low fat, low calorie, high protein diet, achieving washboard abs is very difficult.

According to the American Council on Exercise, to see abs on a male, the body fat must be between or lower than 14-20%. For women this should be 6-13%.

To achieve this, we need to adopt a calorie controlled, lean diet, coupled with a strict and consistent training regime…

It ain’t easy!

When people say “Abs are made in the kitchen” they’re not wrong.

Essentially if you were to create a drastic enough caloric deficit, eventually you would see abs.

This is called starving yourself and I don’t condone anyone to do this as it is dangerous and idiotic.

If your goal is to have ripped abs, then it must be carried out with a safe and regularly monitored approach.

Always seek advice from a professional (like me!) before starting a drastic body transformation.
