I know some of you have been at this for awhile and you're probably frustrated because you have all the fitness mags, you follow all the shredded celebrities and you're doing everything they tell you but you still don't look the way they look. Don't get discouraged. Most of what they are telling you is just there personal preference or they are enhanced(drugs, plastic surgery etc.) It is the fitness industry jobs to sell you things and it is Hollywood job to sell you a dream. Fat loss isn't always easy but It's not rocket science either. In order to lose weight you need to put yourself in a calorie deficit. This means you need to consume less calories than what your body burns. You can do this with food or by exercise. The most efficient way to do this is by using both methods along with flexible dieting.(That flexible dieting part isn't science, it's just my opinion if you don't want to drive yourself crazy just eating chicken and broccoli.) You can eat clean all day but if you're not in a calorie deficit you won't lose weight. You wouldn't attempt to build a house by randomly adding material without having a plan right? So why would you attempt to build your ideal body by just winging it? Save yourself some time and frustration and google macro calculator and find out how many calories you need a day. Then make a plan and crush your goals. Remember that the number one factor in weight loss is a steady calorie deficit and if you want to keep your hard earned muscle and not look like a crackhead do this slowly. Aim to lose maybe a pound a week.
