1. Perform Resistance Training
If your goal is fat loss, resistance training (ie lifting weights) is the fastest way to
get there. Resistance training amps up your metabolism, builds functional strength,
helps prevent the aches and pains that accompany life, and increases bone density.
2. Eat every 2-4 Hours a Day
This is the most crucial tip to engage any type of improvements in your body.
Whether your goal is fat loss, muscle gain, or sport specific training. If you're
serious about your goal, get serious about small frequent meals throughout the
day, and make sure everyone of those meals contains a complete protein source.
