Sometimes it can feel like you’re doing literally everything and still not seeing your body change the way you want to.
Usually people want to lose excess fat while gaining muscle, resulting in the “toned” look.
Even for those who “know what to do,” it can be a real struggle.
What’s about to be said can be hard to accept.
(This assumes you don’t have any specific medical conditions affecting weight.)
The truth is that aside from the above, if you’re not seeing the changes in your body you desire, you’re not doing what it takes to create those results.
You see… people often describe nearly perfect diets and exercise habits who have been struggling with weight for years.
It’s easy to convince ourselves that we’re doing the stuff, but if we were, the desired results would surely follow. Not overnight but you would see significant change over a few weeks and especially a few months.
If this hasn’t been the case, it’s because you’re taking in more calories than you’re expending.
Plain and simple.
Of course, having nutritional support and guidance and leveraging the right kind of exercise will absolutely speed up your results.
But for fat loss, we can’t get around the fact that you have to create a deficit to lose fat.
