What I Learned Going from Fat to Fit

No, that isn’t a nappy on the left–I had my shorts rolled up.

1. Hire a GOOD coach to manage your fat loss.

2. Track and hit your macros

3. Keep lifting heavy and with intensity

Lift weights to retain and build new muscle–let your calorie deficit handle the ‘fat burning’.

4. Measure Progress

5. However long you THINK you need to lean down. DOUBLE IT.

6. Follow a Flexible Diet

7. Take weekly Progress photos

You can see subtle differences between the before photo (left) and the after (right). Differences that would be hard to notice without seeing them side by side.

8. Accept that you will get hungry

9. Realise that ‘slow and steady’ wins the race

10. Think: ‘I’m in this for the long haul’

11. Know that getting lean Isn’t complex, but It Isn’t easy either.

12. Appreciate that your physique doesn’t define who YOU are
