brand new to the fitness world
Pick something fun and stick with it. Any program at all works for beginners, but dicking around and program hopping every 3 weeks will lead to spinning your wheels. Don’t suffer a program you hate, just find one you enjoy and grind away for at least 4 months.
thinks they know it all
Is what they’re doing working? Are they getting gains? Getting stronger? Leaner? Thicker? Ripped jacked solid striated dry hard and tight? If so, fuck dude, for all i care they do know it all, keep up with what you’re doing. If not, obviously they don’t know as much as they think.
Just can’t lose weight
My #1 advice for normies trying to drop weight is to make the smallest changes possible to still get results. Too many people do a full diet overhaul, throw out everything in their pantry, stock their house with only rice, chicken, and veggies. That isn’t sustainable for Janet, Mother Of Two, Who Works A 45-Hour/Week Job And Previously Got Chipotle For Lunch 4 Days Per Week. She’ll stick with that for 18 days and then have a meltdown and decide that diets just don’t work for her.
Instead, if she isn’t actively GAINING weight, i.e., she’s intuitively eating at basically maintenance, cutting out just one Chipotle visit per week WILL result in weight loss. If someone at maintenance drinks 2 sodas per day, switching to a zero-calorie alternative WILL result in weight loss. If someone eats a whole frozen pizza every night, eating just 3/4 of it WILL result in weight loss. These are incredibly simple, easy, sustainable changes. That weight lost won’t be MUCH, maybe 2-5 pounds, but then they can make another incredibly easy change like that and lose more.
