  • Whole milk

To build abs you need to cut down on calories. So consume low fat milk and avoid whole milk due to its high calories.

  • Commercial peanut butter

Peanut butter is one of the best foods you can consume if you want to build muscle, due to its high protein content. Peanut butter is also a great post workout snack. But try and avoid consuming commercial peanut butter. The packaged and ready-to-eat peanut butter is rich in fats, calories and additives.
