A lean, tight body is a goal that almost everyone wants to achieve.
But why does it seem like such an impossible task? Why do so few people ever lose that much bodyfat and become lean?
“Don’t lose sight of the forest through the trees.” … that’s why people fail to lean out
Instead of focusing on the big picture, people get caught up with the details that rarely matter when it comes to losing fat and becoming lean.
By keeping your focus on the big, important factors, you can keep yourself on track and finally achieve that lean body you’be always wanted.
Here are the important factors:
#1 – Eat Less Calories than You Burn Off
Calories represent a unit of energy that your body derives from food.
If there is an excess, some of this energy will be stored in the form if bodyfat.
If there are not enough calories coming from food, the body will be forced to use its fat to make up for this difference (it HAS to, or else the body just stops working … )
So, as long as consume less calories than your body needs to thrive, you WILL lose weight and lean out.
#2 – Strength Train
One key to a lean body is less bodyfat. The other key is to maintain, or even build a little bit of muscle.
The less muscle you have, the “softer and flabbier” you’ll look. This is because muscle occupies the same as your fat – right beneath your skin. And muscle keeps everything nice and looking tight.
Now, you don’t need to become the next Arnold Schwarzenegger, you just need to challenge the muscles enough to give them a reason not to burned off when you cut your calories.
Lifting moderately heavy weights, and gradually increasing the weight over time, will tell your body “HEY! I need these muscles! You better not get rid of them!!!”
#3 – Be Consistent with Eating and Training
Eating less calories (to lose bodyfat) and strength training (to maintain muscle mass) are absolutely essential when trying to achieve a lean body.
But those two things will only help you lean out if you actually stick to it.
Sure, slip-ups happen and life gets in the way sometimes. But if you can’t adhere to your diet and training plan at least 80-90% of the time, you will never get anywhere and never achieve the body you want.
Put in your best efforts, adhere to the plan, and you will surely get results.
