If you are serious about reducing the fat around your waist, in order to get visible, shredded six pack abs, then you need a few minutes to read this article. Here you will read some of the most common mistakes that many people make when they want to achieve visible abs that certainly you should avoid. These mistakes are very common, and if they do them, you can seriously damage and deflect yourself from what you want to achieve.
The most important part of the puzzle to achieve visible abs is diet. This term nutrition / diet does not mean of a diet in a magazine or newspaper, or the latest diet of a singer or actress is preparing for a performance. This term refers to what and how much you eat. 90% of what you get depends on the food you eat and when you eat.
You should focus on caloric intake. We should note the food that have a high quality source of calories from protein, complex carbohydrates, unsaturated fats and fibers.
Let’s look at the 3 things that you should avoid if you want to get visible abs.
MISTAKE # 1 – FAILURE TO CREATE A REAL PURPOSE
This error is very common, and it is best of it to begin with.
Goal is the most important factor when you want to achieve something. The objectives should be recognized and recorded. They must also be achievable and realistic. If you set goals that are too high for you to reach them, it will be discouraged and you will surely fail.
Yes, you should have a target that will challenge you, but it not needs to be way over your possibilities. For example, setting a goal that after 3 months you will look like fitness models from the magazines. It can be destructive in many fields, and it can worsen the situation of long-term goals. Also you can restore the old habits you had before starting this new lifestyle.

Set a goal that is realistic for you. Excess fat that you have, how much weight you should be lower etc. Here is an example – 4 years went by since you last exercised, have habits about food, you have about 40 extra pounds – setting a goal that for 60 days you will reduce 40 pounds is not real …
BUT – setting a target to reduce 40 pounds over a period of 4-5 months makes more sense. It is so easy to embed in your mind, so easier to accept – which will take you one step closer to achieve what you want.
The key is to be honest with yourself where you are now and what you look like. This will be your starting point. Also make sure you have control, as well mark your progress through taking pictures of yourself, regularly measurements etc… Once you achieve your (short-term) goal, it is time to set new one. You will need new targets to keep the abdominal muscles that you worked hard to get.
MISTAKE # 2 – WATCH YOUR FOOD / DIET AS SOMETHING SHORT
Another big mistake that we should avoid is the approach to diet, setting it temporary, for a short period of time. The problem here is that when you reach that goal – visible abs, you stop doing things that have brought you success. (Here most fail to set new targets to maintain what they have achieved – see mistake number 1)
If you set your regime as something short, once it’s done most likely you’ll return to the old habits. There is a huge chance that you’ll end up where you started. That’s not the place you want to be. This is one of the main reasons that many of you will return the weight and appearance before achieving visible abs. We need to notice that our diet is not lasting long enough. It should be something that is transforming in Style of Life and its permanently changing the old bad habits.
When you reach the original goal (visible and defined abs), set yourself a new goal and keep it for a long time.
MISTAKE # 3 – TRYING TO BE PERFECTIONIST BY ANY MEANS
At first, those who follow the diet perfectly, devoted to maximum, follow everything as they should, sleep, eat and breathe the new plan how to reach visible abs. And for the next few days or weeks impeccably working on the plan.
BUT then something will happen… Something always happens when you’re dieting. As a result, they try a slice of pizza, maybe a piece of chocolate or French fries. Immediately after that they stop with their diet because they are think they fail in their plan.
Big Mistake of “perfectionists” that they do so strictly follow the diet and do not allow themselves to make any mistake – not inserting “cheat meals” days. And then, when they cannot follow the diet properly, they are giving up.
Therefore, to avoid this big mistake, forget to be a perfectionist. Do not give up now because you tried something that you shouldn’t try. Learn from the mistake, face with it and move on as if nothing had happened. Good diet for getting abs should include days where once a week there is a “forbidden meal”. MEALS, not all day – as a gift to ourselves that we comply to our diet to achieve our goal.
To put aside perfection. Its OK to try pizza or cake from time to time, while you’re spend those extra calories through training.
