As a community I feel we’re becoming smarter and smarter about working out. Social sources like Youtube, Instagram, and Facebook seem to be exposing us all to SUPER valuable information and also really seem to be making exercising “cool” again.
On the other side of the “cool” stuff is something that we often forget about OR just completely ignore.
A clean diet.
Yeah that’s not the fun stuff, BUT it’s the most important stuff. If you don’t make changes to a bad diet you can expect to see little or no changes no matter how hard you workout.
So how do we make better choices? Do we just like… eat a bunch of chicken breasts? Well, you can but it doesn’t have to be that boring.
To cut to the chase you have to do something called meal prep. Meal prepping is the key to weight loss ESPECIALLY when you lead a busy life - and let’s face it, we’re all pretty busy.
When you meal prep...
So we get these questions A LOT:
“How do I get rid of my love handles?”
“How do I get rid this?’ (Grabs under Tricep)
There is a simple answer to most of these questions. And it’s not to do 1000 crunches, or do 1000 tricep pull-downs. The ANSWER IS: You need to lower your body-fat percentage.
Once you get down to a low enough body-fat percentage these “problem areas” will eventually lean out.
So now you’re asking: “How do I lower my body-fat percentage?
ANSWER: You just have to take in LESS CALORIES than what you would need to maintain your current weight.
Let’s take me for example, If I wanted to stay at the same exact weight that I currently am I would need to eat about 3000 calories a day. And If I wanted to LEAN out a little and LOSE some weight I would need to take in LESS calories than that number.
I’d probably start around 2500 calories.
Now, that’s cool and all but how do you do...
