How to Get the Washboard Abs of Your Dreams

Let’s do a simple exercise.

I want you to picture yourself with a six-pack. I want you to see your beautiful, bold self as lean and ripped, like one of those Greek god statues they carved out hundreds of years ago.

Maybe you’ve never even pictured yourself with a six-pack. Or, perhaps you feel you COULD get a six-pack but you don’t have the time or discipline for it.

Washboard abs aren’t only for the people you see on TV or in magazines. You can get some, too!

You heard me right.

There’s no better time than the summer to tone your abs and get in shape. After all, wouldn’t it be awesome to rock that bikini bod at the beach, the water park, or poolside?

While most people WANT abs, they don’t know how to get them. It’s not as simple as doing sit-ups until your stomach caves in on itself…

…but it’s definitely not that complicated, either.

We’re going to give you a few pointers on how to chisel that core of yours down to abs and muscles. This is stuff you can do today, so don’t be afraid to jump right in and start your ab routine ASAP!

Today’s Greek omelette is made into a waffle shape that’s easy to eat, even when you’re out of the house! The best part? It’s only 279 calories—nearly half the amount you’d find in a normal omelette!
