6 foods your abs will love

Have you been working on your abs in the run up to your wedding day and honeymoon? These are the foods you need to be eating for a rock-hard stomach.

1. Nuts
These babies contain monounsaturated fats which help to make you feel full. We love almonds as they’re high in protein and full of vitamin E which is great for skin too – bonus!

2. Eggs
Eggs are the perfect snack before your workout as they are packed full of protein - try hard-boiling one and munching on it before your spin class. If you want to be even healthier just use the egg whites (maybe in omelette form?) to lower your cholesterol intake.

3. Oats
Oats contain soluble fibre which attracts water and is important for digestive help. Plus, nothing sets you up for the day like a bowl of porridge. Pop some plain oats on the stove with water and a pinch of salt and leave simmering for at least 15 minutes to get it nice and creamy.

4. Leafy greens
Prepare to load up on spinach, kale and broccoli – they are packed with essential vitamins and fibre to help your abs get nice and sculpted. If you hate green veg try chopping it finely and hiding it in sauces and juices.

5. Beans and legumes
It doesn’t matter if you choose soya beans, chickpeas, black and kidney beans, they are all low in fat and packed with protein, fibre and iron – great for losing weight and building up those abs.

6. Berries
Berries are packed full of vitamin C, but most importantly these sweet little beauties help quell those sugary cravings. Enjoy with plain yoghurt, on your porridge or a handful on their own.
