If the goal is just to lean out, become a meth addict. That'll do it.

If the goal is to be healthy, consider that maybe you should have a healthy diet.

I LoLed...

So many people dont understand when I say the same thing when discussing ones diet... Is it the 30 day starvation mode for a "beach" body... Just do meth and heroin... Both are just as bad and can kill you....

Eating choices for a healthily life are best...

Re: Want to lean out

You technically could lean out "eating crap" in a mathmatical sense that you could burn more than you eat, but it would be an extremely difficult battle. An easy solution would be to eat better/clean. You ever look at the calorie count on some "crap"? Not to mention the potential for blood sugar spikes leading to increased insulin production (not something you'd want when trying to LOSE belly fat). Plus all that high glycemic food just makes you hungry for more of it.

Eat clean/good foods, be fuller for the same amount of calories, and lose weight without feeling hungry all the time.

Apparently leaning out judging by the title of the thread

Is eating healthier food going to make you healthier than other people eating crap? Jeezz my dad eats crap and is kind of fat, but his last blood test results were just fine.

I eat kind of crappy too and I am doing just fine as well.

Everybody is different. One person can eat Mcdonalds everyday and never gain an ounce of body fat and have perfect health while another can eat a clean diet and exercise religiously and be have many health problems. But generally speaking your health is only as good as your diet and excercise habits

Re: Want to lean out

He said he wants to lean out no? Nobody said I want to be lean and healthy! You won't become unhealthy by doing drastic things for a few months.
That said. Get yourself on a healthy ketosis diet. Your meals should consist of quality cuts of meat, poultry, fish, almonds, healthy fats, and fibrous vegetables. Keep your daily carb intake 30 grams and below, keep your calories below maintenance (around 500 less a day) You'll be tired, you'll get headaches, your workouts won't be as intense. but it will work to drop fat. One day a week (Saturday) have a cheat meal (not day) so your metabolism doesn't slow down. Take supplements like- kelp, selenium, vitamin D3, magnesium, B6, B12, potassium,fish oil, and a good multi-vitamin daily. It will be rough the first week or so but you will adapt. It may not be the best approach for most crossfit people, but you want to lose fat not be a games champion.
