Foods That Will Lead to Core Strength

By on December 30, 2014

Happy New Year and welcome to “Wellness Wednesday”! Today’s topic: Foods That Will Help Lead to Core Strength. You will come across many weight loss and exercise programs that put a lot of focus on building abs and core strength. Core strength is super important. It connects our upper and lower bodies and we can lose fat where some people need to the waist line. However, when people fail to achieve that sculpted core they’ve been looking for it usually always comes back to diet. Exercise definitely plays into the mix, but for today we’re going to focus on diet. Crafting six pack abs is not as difficult as it may seem as long as you are determined and focused. Once you’re ready to commit, it’s only a matter of time before you begin seeing results. It is true that the process may take longer than usual and that some people are more inclined to get shredded or trim more easily, but here are some foods that will actually help you build more core strength and help you achieve that sleek sexy waistline.

These versatile and delicious nuts contain all the necessary fiber and proteins, along with vitamin E, which is required and helps build core strength. Your body requires magnesium, which almonds provide, in order to produce energy and regulate blood sugar. What’s interesting is that having a stable blood sugar level will help you fight cravings, thus helping you curb overeating.


According to a study conducted in 2003, it has been noted that people who consume at least three apples a day tend to lose more weight than those who consumed a diet of oats. A large apple contains 85% water and has 5 grams of fiber, which keeps you full. Apart from preventing you from eating more than you should, apples contain an essential compound known as quercetin that fights off several diseases including cancer.

People who consume yogurt to maintain their calcium intake tend to lose more weight around their midsection. Additionally, the probiotic bacteria found in these yogurts keep your digestive systems running smoothly. A healthy digestive system decreases the chances of bloating, constipation and incidence of gas, all which can make your stomach look and feel larger than usual. We recommend sticking to Greek yogurt because it has less sugar.

Smoothies and Juices
Regardless of what people say or claim, smoothies and juices can aid in building core strength significantly. As long as the juices and smoothies are made without a lot of sugar, it will do much more than boost your core strength and exercise. These juices and smoothies will keep you hydrated and will provide the required nutrients to flatten your belly in no time and because they are liquid they are digested quickly, thus helping to increase your metabolism.

It is worth noting that seafood such as mackerel, salmon and tuna provide the necessary omega-3 fatty acids your body needs. Contrary to popular belief, these fats actually enhance the fat burning process. In time, your metabolism will be more efficient than ever before. Consuming salmon at for dinner will also improve your glucose-insulin response and thus slow your digestion. This curbs your nightly cravings and will provide the necessary proteins required both before and after your exercise.
When implementing exercise and especially core strength into your routine, you should definitely eat healthy and consume foods that do more good for you in the long run. These foods will not only boost the effectiveness of your exercises, specifically helping in building core strength, but they will also lead you to a healthier lifestyle, free from illnesses and diseases. Thanks for watching this video and I’m expecting you to have shredded and sleek waistlines in the future. Remember juice strong to live long!
