Our bodies have been mathematically and scientifically studied for years, but the basic science to transforming your body is simple enough for anyone to follow.
So many people ask “How can I lose weight?” or “How do I get toned?”
Getting to your goals is not as complicated as you may think. It’s plain and simple folks:
Caloric deficit=weight loss, caloric surplus=weight gain
I believe in cutting, bulking, and maintenance phases vs. what some people call “lose weight and gain muscle” or “tone”. In my opinion these three phases are easiest to follow instead of trying to do both at the same time. You can lose fat to expose the muscle underneath or you can build new muscle while being on a caloric surplus. It won’t make you fat to be on a surplus (and if you don’t believe me check out my progress pictures where I did almost 3 months of lifting and no cardio here).
Too many girls restrict themselves to a low calorie diet because they’re afraid of gaining weight but are shocked that they’re not getting the “toned” look they want. Well, how do you plan on building muscle without fueling your body?
Training is only a part of the problem. Proper nutrition is the key to getting to your goals efficiently.
Ask yourself, are you reaching the goals you want? If not, look at your diet first.
