Former “Big Brother” star, Christmas Abbott is one of the world's top CrossFit athletes. Abbott is known for her vast array of accomplishments in sports, now shares her new diet and workout plan to reduce body fat and tone core muscles.
As a formerly "skinny fat" woman who transformed her body through CrossFit and a dialed-in diet, Abbott understands how real women feel and also what they need to do to get the body they crave.
"Food is your foundation, and fitness is the accessory,".
She believes that every meal and snack needs to embrace the macronutrient trifecta of proteins, carbs, and healthy fats to help reduce overall body fat, which will aid in reducing the belly fat that is so difficult to lose!
Abbott explains that all food can be categorized into a protein, a carbohydrate, or fat.
"You can't go wrong by dividing your plate into thirds and filling each section with a primo protein, primo carbohydrate, and primo fat."
There are only two groups of food Abbott says to avoid: processed foods and alcohol –since these contribute directly to unwanted fat. If you want to know specifically how much of each to eat, The Badass Body Diet outlines a diet plan based on your personal body type and goals.
Short, high-intensity training sessions are proven to help reduce belly fat faster than steady-state cardio. Below are some great examples of this type of workout.
