Eat 5-6 small meals a day.
Get an adequate amount of sleep each night.
Indulge in moderation: i.e. alcohol, treats, etc.
Drink ¾ to a gallon of water each day.
Don’t work your abdominal muscles every day. Your abs are like any other muscle in your body. Train them only 2 or 3 days a week.
Keep your weight workouts to under an hour. After 60 minutes, your body starts producing more of the stress hormone cortisol which can have a testosterone blocking muscle wasting effect.
Eat carbohydrates that are low on the GI index.
Do your cardio session after your weightlifting workout.
Being consistent is the key to success. If you stick with it, you WILL see results!
The scale is just a number. If trying to lose weight, use it to measure your progress but don’t let it become an obsession.
Have fun! Whatever your fitness goals, it’s an adventure that you should enjoy. It will take a lot of hard work but the reward is more than worth it!
