Fat Loss Made Simple

While we titled this article “Fat Loss Made Simple,” we admit that it can seem like there’s actually very little about losing fat that’s easy.

But your job — following that advice, pushing yourself through the workouts, ignoring the potato-chip cravings, keeping track of all those vitally important supplements — is hard. Really, really hard.

However, you know you can do it, and we believe in you, too. So we’ve given you not just one but two complete programs, allowing you to decide which to follow based on which timeline suits your current goals. Now that you have the program, you need to bring the desire, the commitment and the dedication to follow through. The only remaining question is, Are you ready for the challenge?
