It is not said often enough that to achieve six pack abs, the relentless pursuit of doing the best abs exercise is just not sufficient on its own. Eating right plays a big part of getting to that six pack.
So, to really speed things up, pick your veggies wisely. Some are not only great just because they’re low (or zero) carb, but also because they speed up your metabolism. That means you’ll burn more calories naturally every single day without changing your lifestyle at all.
Nutrition researcher John Barban has long been known for his focus on the inherent differences between men and women and how each responds to diet and exercise. He has recently started emphasizing what he calls the “5 wonder veggies for women.”
Numerous studies have shown that when women added these 5 common vegetables to their diets, their metabolisms increased significantly.
By just adding these 5 wonder veggies to their meals, women were also able to lose a considerable amount of weight regardless of their lifestyle and current eating habits.
John has created a video to explain how just eating these 5 “wonder” veggies for women can make any woman at any age slimmer and fitter.
