A long term healthy diet should help redistribute your body fat into healthy locations, yes. Exercise helps, too. Especially cardio. Humans are built for running.

Keto doesn't matter. What matters is a calorie deficit. You need to lift heavy weights while under a prolonged calorie deficit until your BF drops low enough for your abs to pop. That woman has likely gone through several bulk/cut cycles to get... (more)

Personally, my favorite abs exercise is hanging leg raises (toe to bar). It really hits the lower abdominal region and the transverse abdominas, which is ideal for bringing out the Greek God-like "Adonis Belt." That, plus some heavy compounds... (more)

It depends what mother nature gave you, a 6 pack is the most common abs format, second is 4 pack, less common is a 5 pack (one large across with no split and then 4 abs) and then there is an 8 pack. FYI there can also be a 7 pack. Typically, at... (more)

It has been said that abs are made in the kitchen, but how many of you have had the experience that no matter how clean or low-cal you eat, it's only by exercising can you slim down?
