6 Pack Abs Nutrition (HOW TO EAT FOR ABS!)
What’s up guys? Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM.
Today we’re in the kitchen. This is Washboard
Wednesday and we know that the kitchen is
where those Washboards begin.
It really revolves around about how consistent
you can be with your nutrition as I talked
about in last weeks video.
But there’s one other thing here that comes
in two forms for me and it is 100% the reason
why I can support a 6 Pack 365 days a year.
And that is convenience in the kitchen.
You see, I know as guys, I’ve got a lot of
friends that the second the convenience factor
goes away, like maybe their wife goes away
for a week or so,
they’re not eating well any more. So if their
wife does a good job of trying the keep them
eating healthy, the second they’re not around,
they’re going to resort to either not eating
good food at all or going out and eating crap.
It’s just not, it’s the convenience that they
lose that makes them then all of a sudden,
lose all the effectiveness of their eating.
So for me, convenience comes in two forms
like I said. And it’s really about how well
we prepare to eat well.
And I do that by stocking a lot of the stuff
that I like to use all the time.
Obviously for me, I like Cow’s Milk guys,
you can also drink Almond Milk or Cashew Milk,
which I do drink you know, as well.
But you can see that there’s a lot of it in
here. I’m not running out, the second that
I run out of 1 gallon I don’t know what to
I’ve got plenty of it here. We have Yogurt,
you know that I eat Yogurt as part of my Daily
There’s a ton of them in here. Ok, I’m not
going to just go buy one and then when I run
out of that, I have nothing else to use.
But more importantly here what I want you
to focus on is the dish. And this dish is
pre-made, this is what I’m going to eat later
This dish, as we can see, I’ve got pasta here,
I’ve got real foods guys. I’ve got sweet potatoes,
I’ve got some sort of a green vegetable, in
this case it’s edamame.
I do like edamame, I tend to have it a lot.
And this is a humus covered chicken. Now this
chicken, this pasta, these sweet potatoes,
all this stuff was prepared ahead of time
And not just that, I get so lazy that I actually
will make tomorrow’s meal as well.
So you see that I’ll make up these meals ahead
of time from the prepared meals, just so that
I don’t know,
I’ll work out late, you guys saw sometimes
9:30, 10 o’clock at night. I don’t want to
have to start putting my plate together that
I already have one together for the next two
nights so I don’t have to worry about it.
But the convenience comes in on preparing
your stuff ahead of time.
So you see the stuff there, well here we have
the sweet potatoes that are all just prepared
in one lump sum and then put into their individual
And again, I’m not measuring it, I’m not counting
calories, I’m not doing any of that crap guys,
that’s not convenient.
What’s convenient is preparing all that on
let’s say on a Sunday for the entire week.
And there’s no budget concerns here, if you
don’t eat, let’s say you don’t have as much
money to spend on food,
people will cry that their budgets don’t allow
them to eat well, that’s not true.
You don’t have to get chicken breasts here
that you then prepare. You can get chicken
that has the other parts attached to it that’s
a little bit cheaper
because people have to do the labor to cut
all that crap off to get to the breast.
Fine, spend a little bit of extra time on
that one Sunday, to get rid of that crap but
you’re going to get it at a cheaper price.
And the flexibility of let’s say chicken,
which is not the only meat that I eat,
but the flexibility this week of chicken is
that it allows you to prepare it in so many
So not just with the humus on top but also
we prepared like a Mango Salsa here that I
can put on top of it as well.
Or I can have, I can make it with garlic and
olive oil and tomato sauce for a completely
different taste and of course all the different
So that’s convenient factor number one. I
do want to show you one little Holy Grail,
take you guys behind the scenes a little bit,
just to give you an idea of how this is actually
played out over the course of an entire week.
Ok so again behind the scenes, I want to take
you to the dungeon here, this is in the basement.
But I want to show you how far I’ll go to
make sure that I have convenient nutrition
available to me.
This freezer is a separate freezer that belongs
to me down here in the basement.
But here’s the key part about it, it’s what’s
inside the freezer and you can see that here
are the already prepared sweet potatoes that
There’s 1,2,3,4,5. Another 1,2,3,4,5, that’s
10 days worth of sweet potatoes right here
on top of the two I showed you upstairs.
Here in all these Tupperware containers, this
is all lean steak and beef that I have prepared
already frozen, again fresh and then frozen
And we have it in here, I even have some couscous
in different individual servings again.
It’s not about measuring those out that’s
just about how much when I put it on the plate
that follows the proportions I’ve already
discussed in previous videos.
But here I’ve got the whole thing you know,
stocked full of pre prepared meals and that’s
the situation guys
is that even if you have to get a little backup
freezer to hold it, the convenience is that
I don’t have to worry about this food now
for the next 10 days.
And it’s not just the sweet potatoes that
I’ll eat all the time, I’ll have enough options
to grab and mix them up.
The point is that they’re already pre prepared
and I did that on one single day.
Alright so the second thing when it comes
to convenience guys you know how big I am
a believer of supplementation when it comes
to the convenience and the nutrition that
There’s nothing more convenient and there’s
nothing that you’ll ever find me without an
opportunity to supplement throughout the day
because of the pure convenience of it. And
the fact that I know that what I’m putting
in my body is exactly what I need.
So here’s as simple as it gets. And here’s
another plug here for something that I have
no connection to at all.
Just trying to help you guys out and that
is the Ninja. The Ninja Ultima Blender. My
wife bought this.
Watch here awesome this thing is when it comes
to convenience. So I take my RX3, this is
our night time protein for muscle recovery.
So what I’ll do is, I’ll just put it in. You
screw it right on just like this. Put it on
top here lock it in place.
It literally takes like 5, 10 seconds.
And what’s awesome is this is ready to go
So then what I’ll do is I’ll just put it right
here in the refrigerator so even this is ready
to go for me for later.
In case I decide that I even want to do that.
Because again sometimes late at night you
don’t want to blend your blender if maybe
somebody else in your house is sleeping.
So I do it, I put it ahead of time right here
and even that’s done.
So guys, it’s the ultimate in convenience.
If you make your nutrition convenient you
can follow a meal plan for as long as you
want to follow it.
And if you’re eating foods that you actually
enjoy and like, which all of those foods on
that meal plan that you saw there,
are foods that I actually enjoy and like.
And with our X-FACTOR Meal Plan there are
so many options on there.
And they’re not restrictive options to the
point that you’re looking at dull dry food
that you can’t stand,
these are foods that you can actually enjoy
and you can see guys, you can make this a
And that is the most important part.
And if you want your 6 Pack Abs to show year
round, you’ve got to make it a lifestyle.
I can help you to do that guys with our X-FACTOR
Meal Plan laid out day by day.
It’s in our ATHLEANX Training System, you
can get that at ATHLEANX.COM.
