The new year is a time where many of us want to lose weight. Many of us make crazy new years goals of completely transforming our bodies for the sake of bettering ourselves – which is totally awesome and inspiring as a trainer.
The biggest problem is that many people simply do not know the correct process and steps to take in order to get into shape and achieve their goals.
In other words, most people are unaware that cutting is a combination of diet and workout programs.
In order for you to successfully lose weight, you will need a complete cutting program, which includes specific workouts for cutting and a diet plan that emphasizes an increase in metabolic performance.
What is Cutting?
Let’s begin with a rather simple question – what is cutting?
Most people think that cutting is simply losing weight, but cutting is actually a combination of weight loss and restricting muscle loss.
In order for you to successfully cut weight, you must lose pounds off the scale and also maintain pure muscle mass – this is where a pre-set program factors in.
Step 1: Weight Loss
The first aspect of any cutting program will always begin with weight loss. Some of us want to lose 5 pounds, while others are shooting for 30. Either way, the goal here is to decrease the total body weight of an individual.
Weight loss is generally accomplished through your diet and training.
Eating a clean diet that favors plant food with low fats will help to reduce total calories.
