Yes, you can lead a healthy lifestyle, allowing yourself a serious relaxation in the diet. But if the six-block pattern is at stake, the rules of the game change. Here's the approach that you need.

"What exercises for the press will help me pump six dice?"
This question has been heard millions of times in the forums and in the gyms. But only a few inquisitive minds know that this is a trick question, because even all abdominal exercises in the world will not help if the muscles are covered with a thick layer of fat.
If you want to burn this fat layer and show the abdominal muscles located under it, nothing can replace a diet – not just "proper nutrition", but a diet, honed to achieve a very specific goal.
I explained this concept to many guys who wanted to draw six cubes, and almost all of them assured me that they "eat right enough". I think that only some of them openly lied to me. The rest simply did not understand how to actually eat, if you want to reduce the body fat percentage to the values at which the press gets a clear and deep relief.
Of course, most of those who go to training, really eat better than the average person. And nevertheless, between a proper diet and food on drying lies a gigantic abyss. I suggest you move through it.
What is the main difference between those who eat rightly and those who keep everything under full control? In the frequency of power. While the academicians, sitting in comfortable chairs, continue to debate whether the nutrition every 2-3 hour can "speed up" the metabolism, the vast majority of bodybuilders simply know that this approach works.
Due to what? To begin with, it gives you complete control over your diet and does not allow circumstances to control you. If there is a better way to cover an impressive daily need for protein, I'm not sure.
I heard this phrase countless times. In fact, you can. All that is needed for this is planning and careful preparation. You need to compare prices, buy foods in greater quantities, learn how to cook, and then prepare food in advance and store it, divided into many servings. All these are invaluable skills that every sports fan should learn as early as possible.
Most bodybuilders and professional athletes prepare meals once or twice a week. They bake or grill all the chicken, turkey, fish and lean red meat, and in parallel prepare large quantities of sources of carbohydrates, for example, potatoes in uniform and rice.
You can rest assured that this works. Efforts and discipline – that's what you need when you need to get rid of a significant amount of subcutaneous fat. If someone tells you that you can become stunningly slender without any serious work or sacrifice, he either lies in your face, or does not understand anything, or is trying to sell you something. If you want to show the relief of six cubes, start cooking right now!
Many people mistakenly believe that they are eating "useful" products, although reality has nothing to do with this.
For example, two people can eat a chicken for lunch. The first eats 200 grams of grilled chicken breast without skin, ideally seasoned with spices, but without sauce or ketchup. The second eats a sandwich with chicken in the nearest fast food restaurant. Let's compare the numbers.
It should be obvious that the nutritional value of the chicken breast is significantly higher than that of a chicken sandwich from a fast food restaurant. In a chicken sandwich, more than twice as many calories, more than five times as much fat and a sad percentage of protein! In comparison with a properly cooked chicken breast, a sandwich is garbage.
And yet, many people consider sandwiches a healthy choice, because compared to, say, a double cheeseburger, to some extent it is. Nutrition for similar patterns on a more or less regular basis – that's why most people will never reduce the percentage of fat to a level at which abdominal muscles manifest in all its glory.
If you want to be strong, be in shape and look good, you can include something like that in your diet, and then only from time to time. If you want to get an outstanding result, you will have to abandon such food habits forever.
Another fundamental difference between the clean nutrition necessary for a clear drawing of the muscular relief, and the power to simply maintain a "good form", is that there is not room for error. You can, in no time, derail the "diet of six cubes" with a portion of additional calories, fat and sugar in the form of sauce, ketchup or dressing.
Nowhere is this more evident than in salads. Millions of people consider salad to be an absolutely healthy dish. But as in the battle between grilled chicken and a chicken sandwich from a fast food restaurant, there is a bottomless gulf between the choices that you can make.
For example, take the same salad of green vegetables. If you spice it with 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, you will add just 15 calories and 0 grams of fat. If instead you bang into a salad 2-3 tablespoons of sauce based on mayonnaise, and so many do, you will add 310 calories and 32 grams of fat! It's not difficult to understand that this can erase any efforts to burn fat.
Others like to water lavishly with ketchup whatever lies in a plate, or to sip useful proteins in a barbecue sauce, not realizing that once a useful product now carries more harm than good.
Does this mean that you will have to eat fresh food, devoid of a palette of flavors? Of course no! Start to learn the world of spices, dressings and marinades. There are much more useful options, and when you get to know them closer, each piece of food will be as tasty as with sauces and dressings.
If you choose the most absurd concept, which, unfortunately, firmly sat in the collective consciousness, it will be the opinion that training goes hand in hand with the "cheating". Even people with a significant surplus of subcutaneous fat somehow believe that once a week – or even every day – you can afford to eat up to the dump absolutely unhealthy food, if at the rest of the time they adhere to a strict diet.
If you can not see even a hint of blurred lines in the abdominal area, and see where you want the relief of the washing board, believe me: you do not have the right to reward yourself with pizza only because you have eaten properly for several days. In doing this, you just throw yourself back a few steps.
Learn to cook tasty, stay on the right course and continue to eat without errors until you get rid of fat!
Those of you who permit yourself to drink alcohol on a regular basis, you should know that this is completely contrary to the goal of drawing clean cubes of the press. It is no coincidence that the expression "beer belly" exists!
In 330 ml a bottle of beer contains 149 calories and 14 grams of carbohydrates. By itself it is more or less harmless, but connect the math, and you will see that after you have finished packing of six bottles, you can spoil the whole day of proper nutrition. A few spoiled days in a short period of time will definitely suffice to prevent you from seeing six cubes of straight abdominal muscles.
Wine or low-alcohol drinks, especially those containing juices, can be even more loaded with sugar and calories. Nobody says that from time to time you can not afford a glass of wine or a bottle of beer, but if you go out and drink every weekend, be sure that you do not have to be a slender and lean beach stallion, which you could become if would not be alcohol.
Live for your own purposes, love your life
All that I have touched on in this article can be expressed in two words: patience and control. These are the character traits that create outstanding athletes in gyms, and they also favorably distinguish them from others in the kitchen.
Should you listen to me? No. But if you want to be one of the few really drained guys or girls who walk with a smug look and flaunt the muscular relief that immediately sets them apart from the crowd, try to eat by these rules for six weeks. Then we'll see if you want to return to your old habits. I'm pretty sure that you do not want to.
