Drop that bottle of Herbalife, it’s not the ticket to ab-city. As this video from PictureFit explains, there’s one way to get that flat stomach and it’s — wait for it — diet and exercise. Who’d of thought. You can’t remove the fat from your abs alone, whoever thought that was a thing it beyond me. Have you ever seen someone with a six pack whilst fat hangs off their arms and legs?

The equation is simple, you need to burn more calories than you take in and you need to exercise. You also need to have grit and patience because abs work on a timeline of months, not days. If you do get to six-pack land, enjoy it. Now you get to enjoy maintaining it.
