2. They starve themselves and wonder why they’re body is shutting down.

Knowing how much you’re consuming is KEY to getting results.

Unless you’ve got a structured plan/goal for dropping fat you should be eating to your maintenance calories or slightly higher to adjust for exercise.

You track your consumption with a calorie tracking app like MyFitnessPal.

I know what you’re thinking and YES, I’ve heard it all before:

“I hate counting calories”

“I don’t have time”

“Its boring to count calories”

Followed by more excuses.

If you don’t know how much you’re eating, how will you ever get results?

By the way, if you’ve got time to check Instagram you’ve got time to track your food consumption.

You’re an adult, you know how to get results.
