“Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.” ― Hippocrates
How are your abs feeling after yesterday’s workout? There’s a saying that abs (you know, six-packs) are made in the kitchen. If you don’t work on improving your diet, all the strong abs you’re building may never see the light of day. So if you want a flatter tummy, be sure to stick to a healthy meal plan, like the one we’ve provided you.
Today (yep, you guessed it), we’re continuing with our food focus. You’re about to find out just how delicious vegetables can be.
Grab your lemon/lime water and let’s jump right in to today’s challenge.

Today’s Radiant Read:
Day 17 Workout: Front, Back and Sides
When it comes to leg exercises, most people focus almost exclusively on the fronts of their thighs – the part you can see in the mirror. However, your legs are so much more than the quadriceps muscles, quads for short, located on the front of your thighs. There is also the hamstrings on the back, the adductors on the inside, the abductors on the outside and who could forget the glutes – otherwise known as your butt!
This is a three-dimensional leg workout designed to leave to lower body muscle untrained. Do three sets of each exercise before moving on to the next. Rest 30 to 60-seconds between sets and exercises.
