Unless you have that diet under control, no amount of exercise is going to get you a set of poppin' 6-pack abs. Doing 1,000 crunches is going to get you a rock solid core, but it won't be something you want to show off unless you can peel away the layer of fat hiding your ab muscles. 

Eating a balanced diet will allow your body to get the nutrients its needs while burning fat. But what foods should you be eating? Let's take a look at foods that burn away the fat so that your abs (and not a beer belly) take center stage! 

Fruits

Fruits are a great source of natural sugars and carbs. You need these nutrients in order to keep your body moving all day. Without carbs, our bodies would lack energy. Basically, you'll end up on the couch taking an extra-long siesta instead of getting a workout in. 

Fruits are also an example of  carbs that are "slow-burning." This means they'll stick with you longer, releasing energy for a long period of time. You will keep cravings at bay because your body is still burning off the calories you took in by eating the fruit.
