Fat Burning, Weight Loss, Diet and Fitness Q&A of the Week-Weight and Six Pack Abs

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question was e-mailed in and was regarding weight and six pack abs.

Hi Coach,

I'm a male, 5'9" and 185 lbs.  How much weight would I have to lose to see six pack abs?


Total body fat and body fat percentage are more relevant to seeing abs, or six pack abs than total body weight.  You can have a lot of muscle tissue, therefore weigh more than the average person, but have a low body fat percentage and see six pack abs.  If you want six pack abs, concentrate on burning the layer of fat covering them and not so much on total weight.  If you can, get your body fat tested.  Or, a quick tip I would suggest would be to measure your waist every morning on an empty stomach.
