    Talking Losing Fat While Making Gains

    Hi everyone,

    I’m just recently getting back into working out after a while. I’m wondering what are some ways I can fix my physique, especially with reducing the rolls around my tummy and grow some muscles. I can’t seem to post my pics here directly, so it would be real helpful if y’all can take a look at my pics from my profile and provide some suggestions. Thanks a lot!

    1. A moderate calorie deficit (losing 1-2 pounds per week)
    2. Keep protein intake up (at least 0.8g per pound of bodyweight daily)
    3. Lift on a proven strength training program

    Ignore anyone who tries to make it more complicated than what I just wrote above.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    Thanks for that succinct instructions. What are your thoughts on cardio etc. 5km runs during this period? I’m lifting according to a program, and taking protein supplements, but I’m not clear on how cardio might help/impede my goals.

    Start with the three things that he said above. After a while, 1-2lbs will be harder so you might need to incorporate cardio.

    This...

    Cardio is always good for cardiovascular health and endurance, so generally everyone should do *some* cardio type activity 2-3 times a week, later on you may need to add more as the weight starts to come off. If you enjoy running then by all means run, but don't let it get in the way of your strength training which should be your priority. Do it on your non-lifting days ideally (or at least after your strength training is done for the day).
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    wait, so you shouldn't keep hopping between fad diets and different exercises because your favorite youtuber keeps finding flaws about them?
