What I Learned

***A brief side note: I’ve included progress pics to showcase the transformation that my body underwent in my last dieting process, though I’ve heard from some that they view this as showcasing vanity I will disagree in the sense that these are pictures taken with a cell phone in a bathroom, not professional shots done for a adult magazine. These are simply for documentation purposes only to further emphasis points in the blog bellow***

 

A few weeks ago I finally decided it was time to really bring my body fat down and ultimately get “shredded”. I did this for several reasons. Some are covered in several of my previous blogs, HERE and HERE, but one of the main reasons is that it reminds me what my clients go through when we need to drop some of the excess insulation.

Fat loss is not always linear

I swear for the first two weeks it felt like NOTHING was happening. Even though as a trainer I knew better, it still didn’t make the process easier.
