“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” Insanity – Albert Einstein
What you’ve been doing…
So you’ve been doing a combo of dieting and running for weeks, months, and maybe even years. You eat “clean” most of the time, and have thrown in a few cleanses along the way.
For some reason it’s just not working…. The fat isn’t budging, and it actually seems to be getting worse!
You can’t figure out why what worked once before, isn’t working for you again. This time you push the pedal a little harder by running more; dieting harder.
Keep going like this and you’re going to burn out and go insane.
If you keep doing something over and over and you’re not getting the outcome you want, why do you keep doing it? Why not do the exact OPPOSITE!? What if all the hard work you’ve been putting in, is actually taking you away from your goal…
Doing the opposite…
Performing hours of cardio, and dieting will cause you to slow your metabolism. If you want to know the secret to burning fat, it’s having a healthy metabolism.
What is one of the main contributors to a high metabolism? Having muscle!
If you want to actually look tone and be able to eat the foods you want without worrying about your muffin top growing, you need to build your metabolism.
How do you build a roaring metabolism? By fueling your body with enough food, lifting weights to cause your body to adapt, and sprinting fast with ample recovery.
If you have no clue what you’ve been putting in your body, you need to start tracking your food. You need to get your total calories up over time and eat a moderate amount of carbs, with sufficient protein and fat.

“But I have muscle, what are you talking about?!”
Can you perform 5 pull-ups on your own? Can you squat you’re body weight on your back?
These are just some basic guidelines that we use to determine how fit someone is. If you can do these things, chances are you have a good amount of muscle on your frame compared to fat.
Think about it this way…
You want to spend most of the year working on building your muscles, and a few times a year (Spring) dieting down for summer time beach trips!
You don’t know what you don’t know.
