1 You Rely off Ab Workouts to Get you your Abs.You can do all the ab workouts you want, all you'll end up with is a sore stomach and slightly stronger core.
Abs are small muscles, the only way to see them is to lose the fat covering them up.
2 You're Body Fat isn't Low Enough
Unless you're at a very low body fat level of around 10% or lower as a man, or around 15% as a woman, you're going to have some body fat.
Unless your E. Honda, you can't have high body fat and abs
3 You don't Count your Calories.
Nutritionists were tested to guesstimate how many calories they were eating without tracking, and
they were 80% off. So what chance do you have?
Finding out what your maintenance is staying 15-30% under to cut body fat is the only way to get there.
4 You don't Weigh and Measure Yourself.
To tell if your diet is working you need to weekly update your progress to see if your program is working.
How will you know if you're making progress if you're not tarcking, you could be wasting lots of time.
If it isn't cut more calories, or at least do more cardio
5 You Only Lose Water Weight and Muscle
You're fasting, (starving yourself) doing stupid things like juice cleanses, over training, under eating.
Use a proper program where you maintain muscle and lose fat and you'll be good.
Most people would rather work hard than think for a few minutes.
6 It's NormalThat's where most body fat is stored
If you're a man, you usually store fat in your gut, and your man boobs.
If you're a woman, you'll usually store it in your thighs or arms, but women are increasingly storing it in the belly now (not sure why, scientists still researching that)
Doesn't mean you don't look good, just accept that's normal for humans to have a certain level of body fat. If you want an elite body, you have to live a different life.
