I genuinely love getting up in the morning these. It’s the most thin I’ll look all day and the only time, under the right light, I get to see definition on my abdomen. I call it the ‘two-pack eclipse’. It’s there for the briefest of moments, only to hide behind some slovenly love-handles after a few cups of coffee and a bowl of Apricot Wheats. However, the new year, new me bullcrap is just round the corner and as I’ve told the sober half, I’m going to put the hours in and turn that two-pack eclipse into a six-pack comet. Much like these girls have below.

TIP: Don’t have unrealistic expectations. A vigorous, hour-long workout will only burn 800 – 1,000 calories. Luckily, being active helps, and if you burn between 600 and 800 more calories than you take in per day, you can expect to lose about one pound per week. You’ll start seeing results in your abs quite quickly. – Wikihow.com

TIP: A gallon a day. Drinking water helps you to stave off hunger as well as helps with water retention – a big issue when trying to get that six-pack showing. Most of the times we seem hungry it is because we are thirsty, so stay hydrated and you will eat less. Lifehack.com

TIP: The entire concept of taking pills for fat loss is built on a sandy foundation and misleading because diet pills only treat the symptoms and not the root cause. Without focusing on the root problems of a flabby mid-section, like poor nutrition, a crazy lifestyle and improper training, you will just end up where you started – farther away from having a six-pack for summer instead of closer. – BodyBuilding.com

TIP: Getting ripped is more about your attitude and overall approach, than it is about finding the perfect exercise or perfect food. Keep in mind, you are human and seeing any signs of abs are better than none. Don’t worry if you have a bad day at the gym or eating, you will be fine as long as you get back on track the next day. – Muscleandfitness.com
