When people think of getting visible six pack abdominal muscles, they normally think of cutting carbs in their diet. Eliminating most breads, white pasta, white rice, processed foods & sugar is a substantial nutritional commitment necessary in the pursuit of six pack abs. That being said, many people are surprised, if not shocked by the revelation that sweet potatoes are a GREAT nutritional choice if they are trying to burn body fat and get lean ripped abdominals. More and more Hollywood stars are learning that the sweet potato is one of the best foods to burn abdominal fat and help them look their best before the camera.
Sweet potatoes are a completely different vegetable than regular potatoes.
They are not even in the same botanical family. The sweet potato is high in fiber, loaded in valuable antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamins A & C, iron & calcium. Athletes cannot find SIX PACK SHORTCUTS without making better nutritional choices and changing old, flawed & self-defeating eating habits. Remember, an average sweet potato is roughly 100 calories-and one of the best food choices that you can POSSIBLY make.
Despite the perceived misconception, & alluring name “sweet“, there is considerable evidence that sweet potatoes may be a beneficial food for diabetics, with initial studies on animals revealing that they help stabilize blood sugar levels and lower insulin resistance.
Another amazing sweet potato revelation is their ability to improve blood sugar regulation-even in people with Type- 2 diabetes. In addition, sweet potatoes contain a valuable amount of dietary fiber and if boiled or steamed can carry a very stabilizing glycemic index (G I) rating of roughly 50, which explains their unusual & beneficial blood sugar regulating benefits.
