I can’t say it enough.
If you want a lean body the secret is to control what goes into your body. There are no quick magic fixes or supplements. Its hard work in and out of the gym. Theres 24 hours in a day, 1 hour of which you are hopefully busting your ass. You got the other 23 hours to screw it all up. Did that burger or cake jump off the table into your mouth without your consent? Did it? All too often I hear people telling me “xxxx doesn’t work” or “xxxx doesn’t work”. The system didn’t fail you, you failed the system.
It may come off harsh, but this is a reality check for everyone including myself. We all know what we should be doing. We all know what we should be eating but why aren’t we doing it? A lot of times we just kinda want it. We don’t REALLY WANT IT. And that is completely 100% fine. But what needs to be understood is that we need to take responsibility for our actions. Its no ones fault but ours if we don’t achieve the goals we have set out for ourselves.
So my number one advice for getting six pack abs is fix your diet. That is by far the most important thing you can do.
One thing I found to be extremely effective is to control the things YOU can control. Everything else don’t sweat it. Control the things YOU can control and sprinkle on some self discipline and you are on your way to the body that you want.
