ask our dietitian your question today


I am 42 years-old and 218 pounds. I work out at least 5 to 6 days a week, and  I do about 30 to 45 minutes of cardio (treadmill or elliptical) daily.  I don’t do much to work on my abs, but I really would like to have a 6-pack. I usually make a smoothie for breakfast that has spinach, low-fat yogurt and fresh fruit. For lunch, I eat a spinach salad, and for dinner a full-course meal.  What do you recommend that I change?  – Vincent



MAKE LUNCH YOUR MAIN MEAL instead of dinner. For a six-pack dream to become reality, losing weight will help shave-off some abdominal fat.  Core work is a must!  Eat lighter toward the evening, avoid alcohol and stay away from foods with refined flour/added sugars. – Debbie J., MS, RD
