Burn Fat, Tighten Your Abs, Ease Depression

want to try to work out for a minimum of 30 minutes a day and have a well-balanced nutrition plan. You’ll boost your energy and lose those extra calories. You’ll see some results, whether slow or quick, depending on your body.

You are the creator of Hip-Hop Abs. Tell me about your new programs. I have Insanity and Asylum. Insanity is a total body-sculpting program. Your own body supplies the weight and resistance; there are no weights or equipment. It’s high intensity. I have a nutrition guide. Asylum just came out. It incorporates strength training. It’s very sports specific. You work on speed, agility, power, strength, pulling. It’s more in depth with the sculpting of your body.

How do you know what you should and shouldn’t eat for sculpted abs? Everywhere I go people ask, “What do I eat?” I ain’t telling nobody what to eat. [Laughs.] Write a list with a bunch of foods you like. You know what’s good and what’s bad. For example, if you like ice cream, have a quarter instead of eating a pint. Don’t deprive yourself. Take all the healthy options and make them 90 percent of your diet. Make the bad things 10 percent of your diet. Just balance yourself off. Find foods you like and pick healthy ones. Eat the bad foods once or twice a week. Eat any of what you want but not all of what you want.
