10 Steps to an 8 Pack

There’s a difference between “in shape” and “ripped.” If you’re just looking to get in shape, you can skip this story. But if you want true bodybuilder definition...read on.
An often-neglected aspect of abs is
getting enough green vegetables. They have essential nutrients that your body wants to make sure it gets, and if you don’t provide the necessary nutrition, you’re going to find yourself rooting around in the cookie jar looking for it. To ensure you’re fully loaded, make a fresh juice crammed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants with a minimum of calories. That means vegetable juice (not fruit juice, which is packed with lots of sugar and not enough of the fiber that whole fruit provides). Green juice is like a salad in a glass (only tastier, I promise). This recipe is one of my favorites. Juice the ingredients and pour over 1/3-cup of water and half a cup of ice:

1/2  cup cucumber

1/2  cup celery

1/2  cup spinach

1 tsp fennel seeds

1/2 green apple

Parsley and ginger, to taste

In addition to providing valuable nutrition you may be unable to get from whole foods during the day, a green juice can also act as a detoxifier.
