Tip: Try to incorporate veggies in every meal! My go to vegetables are kale and red peppers.
What you put in your body is important for your health, especially to maintain or attain that flat stomach. No matter how many days you hit the gym, the fact is a tight core is made in the kitchen.
Let’s talk about genetics.
Genetics is important to touch on when it comes to fitness and health because at the end of the day, your shape is your shape. Don’t get too discouraged though; you look great. Instagram is not real life and a flat stomach does not define your fitness level; however, we could definitely all do a better job at nurturing our bodies.
Healthy eating is not as hard as it looks (this is coming from a former university student who was constantly on the go as well as living on a student budget). I’m no expert but my suggestion is to find what works for you. Simple enough right? Wrong. It took me a while to figure out how to differentiate between healthy foods I liked, foods I could tolerate, and foods I can’t stomach to this day. I even made an eggplant lasagna one time; the dish wasn’t bad but I wouldn’t eat it again.
As I got older, I started to really pay attention to what I was putting in my body. Instead of trying to diet I made a lifestyle change. I cut out or reduced my consumption of pork, dairy, red meat, and foods high in sodium. You’re probably wondering what I ate during the school year as student budget friendly meals typically consist of mr.noodles, frozen pizzas, mac and cheese… need I go on? Well I made it work. I started researching fast, easy, cheap meals and the ideas were endless.
