Whether your goal is to reduce fat or build muscle, being consistent with your diet is one of the best ways to guarantee progress.
Let’s look at fat loss for example…There’s no point starving yourself on 800 calories per day Monday to Friday, only to put away 4000 a day on the weekend and undo all that hard work.
This is a very simplistic way of looking at it, but when you’re too extreme with your diet it’s impossible to sustain it long enough to make a real difference.
Getting healthy and improving your physique doesn’t have to make you miserable. If you’re too strict with yourself it just means you’re more likely to give up all together.
Taking a more sensible approach is the best way to ensure long term success, and means you can still enjoy your favourite foods, rather than cutting them out altogether.
