If you’re trying to sculpt a six-pack the first thing you need to do is lose weight. But if you don’t know where to start, you might want to look at your diet. Follow these simple rules for eating to lose weight. It’s a lot easier than you think so you don’t have an excuse to not be shredded.

1. Eat for the body weight you want to be.

If you weigh 90kgs but want to weigh 80kgs – eat like an 80kg-man.

2. Consume at least two servings of vegetables a day.

Vegetables are low in kilojoules and high in belly-filling fibre.

3. Eat at least two servings of fruit a day.

Fruit provides your muscles with plenty of carbs for energy, but has less impact on your blood sugar than grains and other high-starch foods do.

This is important because it can help you avoid the cravings and binges that occur when your blood sugar rises quickly and then crashes.

Ideally, the majority of your carbs will come from fruits and vegetables. So limit yourself to just two daily servings of grains, beans, and high-starch vegetables, and consume the rest of your carbs from produce.

4. On the days you work out, eat one hour before you exercise and again within 60 minutes after your last rep.

The times of the day at which you eat are very important. You don’t want to be eating too far before a workout because you won’t have enough energy.

And if you’re eating too close to your workout, you might start to feel sick.

Eating at the right time after your workout aids with recovery so you can get right back into the gym the next day and get ripped like the dad who made 3 changes and finally got a six-pack
