Like all other goals, getting lean involves consistency. Consistency in a food program and physical exercise. You cannot have one without the other.

A caloric deficit may help improve one’s ability to lean out if the individual is medically healthy. This deficit will depend on each individual’s body weight, age, and personal health. Since leaning out is extremely dependent on food and the individual’s personal health, one must check with their healthcare provider before starting any restricted eating program.

Don’t be fooled by the word diet or all the no work fad diets marketed. Clean eating is good for the mind, body, and spirit. Making an eating program part of a lifestyle almost guarantees success. Education on what and how foods affect the body is critical.

Substituting high-quality supplements into a program may aid those with a busy lifestyle. Amino Acids may be suitable for getting lean and hard. Each amino has it’s on function, but when blended together they are a great addition to any supplement arsenal. Amino Acids blended together can be utilized as a pre-workout, intra-workout or post-workout. Amino Acids also aid in muscle recovery, natural energy, fat burning and appetite suppressant.

Start simple so you can learn what certain foods and supplements do for the body. Keeping a diary of food and exercise is a great tool in evaluating your successes and failures. Adjust all behaviors for success.

Exercise is an important tool in aiding in a leaning out program. But, without the food/supplement program, your success will be like a yo-yo. Up and down. A synergy of both food and exercise and consistency is the key.
