Bad dietary habits are the main reason why most people don’t have visible six pack abs. You can be training hard and long hours, but if you consume more calories than you burn, your body fat would never be low enough for you to see your six pack abs.
Here are the top 3 evil foods to avoid if you are serious about getting six pack abs.
Bad trans fats come in the form of partially or fully hydrogenated oils. In the hydrogenation process, vegetable oils are extracted at high temperature and pressure using metal solvents and hydrogen gas. Then, they are steam cleaned, bleached and deodorized. The chemical alteration turns liquid oil into semi-solid (partially hydrogenated) or solid (fully hydrogenated) at room temperature.
Hydrogenated oils are used in processed and packaged foods such as cookies, cakes, pies, donuts, crackers, peanut butter, salad sauces, shortening, and margarine to extend their shelf life. If you see “trans fats” or “hydrogenated oils” listed on a label, avoid the food completely.
Fried foods are another unhealthy crap loaded with trans fat and high in calories. Frying destroys essential fatty acids and other nutrients.
Trans fats don’t only make you fat and crave for more fatty foods. They raise low-density lipoproteins (also known as LDL and bad cholesterol) and cause inflammation inside your body, increasing your risk of high cholesterol, clogged arteries, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup
If you have a sweet tooth, you are more likely to consume too much refined sugar (in candy, chocolate, sweets, sodas, donuts, cakes, fruit juices, and cereals). On food labels, watch out for glucose, sucrose, dextrose, maltose and any other word ending in -one.

They also cause diseases and other damages to the body like diabetes, cancer, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), osteoporosis, yeast overgrowth, and heart disease.
White bread (white flour)
It’s an oversimplification to say white bread is fattening. White flour (a refined carbohydrate), used to make white bread, crackers, bagels, donuts, and cakes, is the culprit.
The processing of whole grain converts it from complex carbohydrate (whole grain) to refined carbohydrate (white flour) with little, if any, nutritional value. All vitamins, minerals, and fiber have been removed. The effects of refined carbs on blood sugar and insulin levels are similar to that of refined sugar (see 2 above).
Stick with 100% whole grains if you want to keep the belly fat off!
A six pack abs diet consists of natural, wholesome and unprocessed foods. It’s not about going on a low carb or low-fat diet. We need all macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate, and fat) for the proper functioning of our bodies.
