The Abs Diet Special Breakfasts & Lunches

This is another post related to our Abs Diet plan. We have already got our smoothies, workout plans, dinners etc which all related to the Abs diet plan. And so this is about the breakfasts and lunches which we have mentioned in our workout plan.

I like to discuss these breakfast and lunch recipes, as I have personally tried these. These are created with fresh vegetables, fruits, carbs and meats. Most importantly, you will feel that these don’t make you fat as it contains low calories and low carbs.

When I try these in my diet period, I felt that making my own food provides an additional advantage by knowing the number of calories that I take in. For this, you can simply use a macro calculator to convert grams to calories in the first stage. Afterwards, you don’t need to calculate the grams even. Because then you can simply assume the number of calories by looking at the amount of food. Even though now I’m out of my diet, I still make these recipes as they are healthy and beneficial to make a healthy body. So, without further ado, let’s get into the delicious healthy breakfasts and lunches.
