The Art of Staying Lean (Why You Can’t Keep Your Six Pack)

The Art of Staying Lean

We’re all determined to shed off every last bit of fat and reveal model worthy definition! So we diet and train our asses off to get into incredible shape. Yet, we’re missing something! We don’t address how to keep our shape. I mean why would we? If we can get the fat off, then surely we can maintain that.

We all know that on paper, it’s a heck of a lot harder to be dropping fat, compared to simply maintaining one’s body fat percentage. But what shows up on paper, isn’t always the same case in the real world. In fact, how many people do you know that lost a bunch of weight only to gain it all back, and then some?

Hell, I’ve done this quite a few times! I’d start around 12% body fat, then I’d shred down to 8, 7 and sometimes 6% body fat. I’d get there, then I’d feel an enormous amount of satisfaction and I’d allow myself to relax, completely.

Like clockwork, I would quickly and swiftly regain all the body fat I had dropped. After doing this several times, I finally had to dial in a cutting protocol and maintenance protocol that allowed me to stay at 6-8% body fat year round.

Well in this podcast, we cover exactly how to keep your six pack abs. In fact, this is one of the most important episodes you will ever listen to. The last thing I want is for you to lose the same 10, 20 or 30+ pounds over and over again.

Instead, I want you to lean down once and stay there. This takes a very methodical strategy, one that I have laid out precisely in this jam packed 35-minute podcast.

In this episode, you will discover: 

  • Exactly why extreme dieting will cause you to gain weight faster than a retired NFL player
  • How to cut correctly in the first place (otherwise you will never maintain your results)
  • Why you must maintain dietary discipline and structure when eating at maintenance
  • How to adjust your calories to maintenance and ensure you don’t gain an ounce of fat
  • The best macro split for eating at maintenance
