Starving yourself and over exercising is not going to get you to your goal any faster. The weight you see dropping on the scale? That’s water weight and muscle tissue! You are just going to make yourself skinny fat and slow your metabolism. Once you’ve done this, the next time you start eating normally again, you’re going to gain all that weight back, PLUS more. This is why crash and fad diets don’t work! When you break down your lean muscle tissue, you slow your metabolism SIGNIFICANTLY which makes it way easier to gain body fat.
Be PATIENT. It only took me a few months to get in decent shape… and that was through HARD WORK. 7 meals a day consisting of lean protein (mainly eggs and fish), veggies (spinach, asparagus & broccoli), complex carbs (oatmeal & sweet potatoes) and healthy fats (natural peanut butter, olive oil & avocado). Plus I worked out 6 days a week lifting weights and doing cardio. I also drank a gallon of water a day and got plenty of sleep! It took me time and a lot of willpower and patience… but the end result was a lot better (and I was a lot more proud of it) from doing it through hard work and not shortcuts or drastic measures!
Fit and healthy is a LIFESTYLE… not a means to an end!
