Foods to Avoid at the Thanksgiving Table if You Want to Keep your Abs

Foods to Avoid at the Thanksgiving Table if You Want to Keep your Abs

Getting ripped abs is a dedication that actually starts at the dinner table not the gym and if you’ve busted your ass trying to get them, you will want to keep them by avoiding these foods at the Thanksgiving table. 

Refrain from refined grains.  There are actually great gains for gaining muscle and good carbs but it’s the refined grains that could cause fat to find its way your gut. So what are refined grains? Well, they are likely to be in your white-buttered rolls or white, fluffy rices and pastas. If they make their to your plate, just keep passing.

Beer and soda.   Soda and beers contain not only those tiny bubbles that will bloat you out in your favorite pants but will keep you feeling bloated the whole meal. There is also a shit ton of sugar in sodas so why waste those calories on a drink? If you want some alcohol with your meal, stick to a white wine that is dry. 

Mashed potatoes.   This is a tough one to pass on. Potatoes and especially white ones have a higher glycemic index than sugar! Why? Well, blame is on the amount of starch that white potatoes contain which is no good for maintaining those abs. If you must have some, a little dollop for taste will do. Otherwise, reach for the green beens instead. 

Processed sugars.   By now, we have all heard the word “processed” in our foods. Well, pre-packaged foods that sit on shelves and never age can age your body pretty fast. Many of these processed foods HAVE to contain sugar and sodium so they can stick to its shelf life. If it comes in a package and doesn’t spoil for several months or until the end of time, just avoid it. It’s better to go for fresh-baked cookies and keep em’ to a minimum. 

Don’t drop your workout routine.   It’s easy to skip out on workout routines when they are abruptly interrupted by family obligations or family drama. This is can especially challenging if you are traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday. Even if you are not “killing it” during these workouts, it’s easier to return to your normal routine when you are not completely MIA at a gym. Here’s a blog on how to get those six-pack abs in case you don’t have them but want them.

As always, never start a new diet or exercise plan without consulting your physician first. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and kick-ass abs.

8 Ways to Turn on a Woman With Minimal Effort 

You may not believe this but it doesn’t take much to turn on a woman. No really. So, stop trying to rack your brain to understand woman on how to get them in the mood.

Cook dinner.  Seriously, throw on an apron, chop up some veggies, sear some meats and turn up the heat in the kitchen and in the bedroom. Here are 25 dinners that you can’t mess up. 

Make coffee.  You don’t even have to bring it to her, but simply set it the night before and have it ready to slurp in the morning. 

Get along with and pretend you like her pet.  Even if you hate cats or happen to be allergic to them, pop some Claritin and snuggle up with “Whiskers” even if he/she wants to claw your eyes out. A little love for her pet means a lot of love in the bedroom. 

Don’t ask or expect recipricol oral pleasure.  Sometimes you have to take one for the team and this is especially true for oral sex which will lead to more sex. 

Clean up.   A little goes a long way when it comes to cleaning up. You don’t have to scrub every surface but pick up some socks, drop the toilet seat (give it a quick scrub if you can) and remove any dishes in the sink. A woman that comes home to a clean apartment will practically jump your bones before you have a chance to take off those dirty socks before you drop them on the floor again. Here’s another reason why you should be doing the dishes.

Unexpected affection.  A quick kiss on the neck while her back is to you or cradled hug or sliding her legs onto your lap while watching TV will lead to a Netflix and Chill night. Here are 8 movies that will get her in the mood for sex.

Give her a massage.   Take your time, slow down and don’t rush. We are talking a real massage that lasts at least 3 minutes. Avoid the temptation to hurry up, press a few shoulder muscles and expect to roll over and go at it.

7 Sexy Things Women Do that are a Turn-On For Guys

Believe it or not, the “duck face” lips are not as sexy to guys as they are to the girls making them. In fact, it’s the moments on this list where women are not even aware they are being sexy—they are just being women.

So, without further ado, I give you the 7 sexiest things women do that are a turn-on for guys.

  1. Putting on lipstick or lip balm using your rear-view mirror.   There is something about a woman applying lipstick. Doesn’t matter the color, gloss or if it’s just plain ol’ Chapstick.

2. Watching a women while she’s running or jogging.   I don’t care if it’s a treadmill or a sidewalk. A women that runs with her shoulders back, and muscular legs in motion is a sight to behold. It wreaks of confidence and natural stamina and physique.

3. Whenever a women is stretching.   This could apply to simple stretches before exercising or just arching their backs mid yawn.

4. Intelligence.   Yes, a smart woman that doesn’t have to show off her intellect but points out something very profound holds quite a bit of respect IMHO. Forget being a bimbo, sexy is all about an educated and intelligent woman.

5. Necklaces that define the nape of a woman’s neck.   The well-defined nape of a woman’s neck is an instant turn on and the right jewelry that brings that out is irresistible.

6. Tall women.   Any woman that is over say, 5 feet 8 inches tall whether it’s because of high heels or a god-given stature. 

7. An “innie” navel.   A slightly exposed navel or belly button is super sexy. Or even just a little of exposed skin whether deliberate or not. In fact, the less deliberate it is, the better.

Guys, what about you…what’s your biggest and less-obvious turn on in a woman?
