Aside from the questions “What’s the best diet to get ripped?” the two other most common ones “What to expect from the journey to getting a six pack?” and “How long does it take to get ripped”.
Those last two questions get asked much more frequently than which diet to choose, what are the best macro ratios etc..
It seems like now the issue for most people is committing to the journey.
And with our logical brains, we try to calculate every little bit of it. We try to predict the future, how much of effort is it going to take and is the return worth it.
It’s only natural to do this calculation, but it’s also causing a lot of guys to give up before they get lean enough to see their six pack.
You see, the hardest thing about getting ripped is to keep doing the hard work when you don’t see any results.
Having that belief that things will work out eventually is the most difficult part. And some people can’t accept that.
In the world we live in it seems like everything has to be calculated, controlled and predictable. Sadly, when it comes to our body we can’t pick where the body fat is going to off from, and for the most part, we can’t know exactly how long it will take us to get ripped unless we’ve done it 3-4 times.
You could be losing body fat from your lower back and your back for weeks before you notice any changes and because you’re only looking at the six pack, it seems like you’re not making any progress.
The thing is, if you’re in a caloric deficit your body will lose body fat, it has no choice. That energy has to come from somewhere.
Now, if this is your first or second time trying to get lean and ripped, you’re probably wasting a lot of your energy and time on trying to predict the outcome instead of surrendering to the process.
After all, the process of managing your calories and macros (especially protein), training to keep getting stronger in the gym, getting proper sleep, eating high-quality unprocessed food most of the time, managing hunger and being consistent with this every single day is what eventually will compound itself into your transformation.
Think about when you were a little kid. How many times did you fall while learning to walk?
You didn’t try to calculate how many falls it will take; you didn’t feel like a failure, and most importantly you didn’t give up.
There’s belief, keep getting up, keep trying.
As a baby you knew it was possible, you see people around you walking. Similarly, you see people in great shape.
There’s thousands of successful transformations, some faster than the other.
They all have one thing in common; the person kept putting in the work regardless of whether they saw the results or not.
They trusted the process.
