GUT CHECK MARIO'S ABS (CON'T) Snack Strong

Eat frequently, but don't go crazy. "I try to graze all day-like a goat." Lopez says. Grab a couple of healthy snacks between lunch and dinner-a small piece of fruit, a handful of raw nuts, or nonfat Greek yogurt, for example. This will keep your metabolism stoked and prevent you from getting so hungry that you'll eat anything in sight. If you don't plan ahead, you're much more likely to cheat.

Make Smart Choices

Eating often doesn't give you free reign to pick whatever you want. Stick to wholegrains, fruits, or vegetables for carbs.

Keep your proteins lean, like turkey breast, chicken, or fish. And shoot for variety Eating the same thing every day can get boring. As long as your meals are in balance, your calories are in check, and you're eating frequently, you can get away with a late-night snack-just not a candy bar. Haifa frozen banana is a great option before you lie down for the night," Lopez says.

Always Be Ready

Lopez maintains his busy schedule by keeping workout gear on hand at all times. "I always have a gym bag full of clothes in the car with a towel and all my toiletries. My trunk looks like a gym," he says. It's hard enough to get your workouts done, but keeping a change of clothes close by will take away one of your excuses.

"I've got my boxing gear, a basketball if there are hoops around, my racquetball racquets. I'm ready to go."

Cut Yourself Some Slack

"It's good to have occasional cheat days,"

Lopez says. "I love ice cream, pie, and cake." Whatever your favorite treat may be, let yourself have it once in a while. Just don't make it a regular part of your weekly diet. "You can't have it all the time, but take full advantage when you do, so you never feel deprived."
