The Perfect Meal Plan For Flat Abs - Top 5 Picks of What Your Diet Should Have

So, you are looking for the perfect meal plan to build those flat abs? You are in good company. A lot of folks looking for a sleek, awesome midriff start by tweaking their diet. Lets get started on that path shall we?

Here are our top 5 choices for flatter abs:

1) Almonds
These nuts are delicious and a great source of protein, fiber, vitamin E and magnesium. Vitamin E is a great antioxidant that helps your body fight free radicals (bad stuff, trust me on that). Magnesium is a mineral that helps produce energy, build and maintain muscle mass and keep blood-sugar levels stable. This helps reduce cravings which can lead to overeating and then weight gain. Some research also indicates that they help block calories by helping reduce the absorption of fat. It doesn't get better than that does it.

2) Soy
Soybeans have long been a wonderful source of fiber, antioxidants and protein. They too are very versatile. You can have dry-roasted soybeans as a snack and add edamame into soups. Adding silken tofu to your morning smoothie is a great start to the day. Some studies indicate that participants who consumed a soy milk-based meal replacement instead of a traditional dairy-based one lost more weight.

3) Berries
Berries with their loads of fiber are a great friend especially if you are looking to lose weight. Adding more fiber to your diet helps your body absorb the other stuff that eat. Fiber traps food particles before they are fully broken down and helps them on the way out of your system. In addition, berries are also great sources of antioxidants and other cancer-fighting nutrients.

4) Leafy greens
Mother was right. Those leafy greens are definitely a great addition to your meals. The cartenoids (fancy name for stuff that helps prevent cancer) are awesome but the best part of having leafy greens is that they are a source of calcium, fiber and are low in calories.

5) Quinoa (KEEN-wah)
We bet that most of you have never seen or heard of this. Half a cup of this whole grain contains 11 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Some brands require rinsing prior to use. Besides that, you cook it like you do any other grain. The nutty flavor and crunchy texture give you the feeling that you are eating something between a couscous and brown rice. Your waistline will love this.
