So you want to get shredded?

Or maybe it’s a few months into the year and your New Years resolution to lose weight isn’t tracking too well. I’ve been there.

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is. There are things you can do all year round to get lean and stay lean.

Screw the 8-week challenges. Think 80-years instead.

Screw the stomach surgery. You don’t need it. No one should need it.

I grew up as an overweight teenager. I used to be scared in gym class to take my shirt off.

Scared to walk around a shopping centre because my t-shirt was hugging my man boobs.

I’ve been lean for the past 7-years. I’m not going back.

I know you’re in a hurry. So we’ll look at the things which offer the biggest benefits.

1. There is no best diet

I’ve tried them. Vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, low carb, high carb. You name it.

They all work. I felt better on some than others. And you’ll be the same.

Nutrition science is still very guess and check when it comes to each individual.
