Hi Frugal Fitness, I need your advice on nutrition... I've been working out for months, without using supplements, and results are ok by me. But the problem is the fat in abdominal area. It just won't come off... Plus I feel like I have less energy day after day. So, I was just wondering if you could tell me what is it that I am doing wrong, because I would really not want to use any supplements? I do have one little question: what do you think about natural bee honey? I know it is good for health in general, but I'm not sure how it goes along with fitness meal program... Thanks in advance.
The abdominal region is the body's natural fat deposit area for men so there's more bodyfat there than on any other place in your body. Unfortunately you cannot spot treat it by doing ab exercises, just burning calories in general. You'll lose fat uniformly throughout your body but you just have more on abs to begin w/ If you are having abnormally low energy levels for long periods of time, you may be over-training, not taking in enough calories, or in need of a medical checkup. Try to also add in flaxseeds to your sandwiches, salads, and other foods for extra Omega-3 fats that you canTry to increase your intake of lean proteins, stick to only veggies, oatmeal, brown rice, and sweet potatoes for carbs, and drink plenty of water. Drinking some coffee or tea may help as well as long as you don't add cream, sugar, etc. burn for energy. If you have very low energy early in the morning or the first half of the day, a piece of fruit might be a good idea for a quick source of carbs. If you have extremely low energy, your blood sugar might be very low. Great question, natural honey may have some health and medical benefits like you mentioned, you can still consume some if you are dieting/trying to lose bodyfat, but I would limit it to first thing in the morning and/or post-workout, both times that your body is carbohydrate-deficient and the quick sources of glucose will be utilized by your body immediately, therefore greatly reducing the chance its calories will be stored as fat.
