A sample meal planIf you're going to put the effort into working out, you must eat better too, says Conrad. Here's an example of a day's worth of ab-friendly meals:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with cinnamon and agave nectar (it's a natural sweetener that won't make your blood sugar spike).
Morning or post-workout snack: Handful of raw cashews or almonds.
Lunch and dinner: Dark leafy greens (broccoli, spinach), veggies (pass on the potatoes), and some lean protein. Don't eat too much protein, though -- it's harder for your body to digest. And remember to keep protein servings to the size of your fist in diameter and as thick as a deck of cards.
Afternoon or evening snack: Veggies and hummus or another handful of raw cashews or almonds.
