11 Ways To Build Muscle And Lose Fat Faster

You're going to the gym, you're eating your leafy greens, and you gave up pizza for the week. What more does your body want from you?

Are you working out regularly, eating healthy, and still not seeing the results you want?

Building muscle, losing weight, and getting lean can be hard, even when you think you're doing all the right things.

1. First, you need to make sure you're eating enough.

2. Know that cardio is not the holy grail of getting lean.

3. That being said. Don't lift just any weights.

4. Longer workouts are not necessarily better.

5. You may not be doing your workouts in the right order.

6. You might have plateaued with your workout routine.

7. Make sure to eat before you work out.

8. And make sure you're getting enough protein after.

9. Muscle definition depends largely on how you're eating.

10. You're working out too much and/or not sleeping enough.

11. You're eating WAY more calories than you've burned.

All that being said, make sure your expectations are REALISTIC.
