Patient discussion about target

Q. Does good and healthy diet helps in achieving the target besides regular exercises? I am planning to join a gym to have a good physique, especially to get six pack abs. I think I need to work hard to develop muscles. I have kept my targets for a year to get them. My instructor has told me that he will guide me to make a really good looking abs. Does good and healthy diet helps in achieving the target besides regular exercises?

A. My experiences is that I missed to have a right diet and I lost my strength in the mid. This made me weak. And I lost all muscles very quickly. My targets were not to built abs but weight reduction. I stopped having one meal. I got slim but with lost energy. To make things worse I was having beverages. I did not notice that my health has deteriorated to a great extent. This was due to the passion to lose weight. So you keep your targets with low passion and with flexibility. Keep taking good diet and go slow and steady.
