I'm taking it back...

Last Thursday, I wrote about fat loss and the simplicity at which fat loss was achieved.

I got a few emails yesterday expressing people's concern with that statement. So let's clarify what I said in Thursday's blog post...

"...but it really is simple - watch what you eat (lots of water, lean protein, healthy fats, fruits and veggies), train hard (weight training & intervals work best) and try to get rid of as much stress as possible."

So what I said was, fat loss is SIMPLE...S-I-M-P-L-E.

Fat loss is simple...It's just not EASY!

In fact, it's really f_cking HARD!

Just ask the fitness model on the cover of Men's Health how much canned tuna and broccoli he had to eat to make the line through his abs a little deeper.

Just ask the MMA fighter who has to get rid of the last 5lbs to make his weight class.

If losing fat were that EASY we wouldn't have an obesity epidemic. We'd be a society of Men's Health and Shape magazine cover models.

Now I'm not saying this to discourage anyone. Nor am I saying that achieving the body you've always wanted is impossible. It just takes HARD WORK and CONSISTENCY. Stay on track with your nutrition. Use a program that works and train hard (even if you don't see any "results" after the first couple of weeks...trust me, something's happening). Give it all you've got and you'll get there.

That sums it up quite nicely.

Just doing a drive by. Good to see things are going well Chris.
