The other day I wrote a blog about my 9 tips for sculpted abs. However, since then many of you have contacted me and asked more about nutrition and diet and what to eat to get that 6-pack we all want.

We all have abs, they are just more or less visible. To make your abs visible you need to ensure that your body fat percentage is fairly low, but also that you avoid foods that might trigger bloating and water retention. This is obviously highly individual so try to stay in tune with your body to see what foods you might react to.

To get rid of the ‘padding’ you will need to ensure that you eat fewer calories than you spend on physical activity. However, it’s important that you don’t eat too little as this can make you waste muscle and create a stress response in your body. You need to take it slow…  Getting the body of your dreams is like a marathon, not a 30-second sprint! You need to persevere and be consistent!

Nothing beats a tight toned, round shapely booty and taught tummy. But I know that many of you (including me when I first started out) found the gym a little intimidating. This is why my program Body By Nina is filled with at-home workouts. Today I’ll show you some great moves you can do at home, or at the gym if you prefer.

We all need to start somewhere so if you feel like you do not have the right equipment to start exercising you are WRONG. All you need is YOU. Doing body weight exercises at home is a great way to start because when these exercises are new to you, or you are just starting out with becoming more active, these simple moves will still challenge you. Over time, they will begin to feel “easy”, which means you are getting stronger. In that case, you begin to add more weight, which you can do with some weights at home or in the gym. The important thing to do is just start, and you will begin to progress and start seeing results!
