You have to choose between carbs and your abs.
AB FACT You can have your pasta and crop tops too. “In the ’90s we vilified fat, and now we’re doing the same to carbs,” Edberg says. “But they’re part of a healthy diet.” A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that people on a low-calorie diet who ate four to seven servings of whole grains a day lost twice as much ab fat as a similar diet group who ate less than one serving a day. The key is having a healthy amount of grains, veggies, and fruit instead of refined, processed carbs and eating lean protein and good-for-you fats too.
