Since a pound of body fat is 3500 calories, you will need to cut 500 calories per day to burn a pound of body fat and get cut. Eat foods that are high in nutritional benefit, but low in calories such as raw fruits and vegetables, to burn the most body fat. Foods such as asparagus, melons, parsley and artichokes act as diuretics and will help you lose water weight that may be hiding your ripped abdominals as well.
