What things can I do in my daily life (outside of the gym) to help me see results faster?
The most important thing is to remove all junk food from your life. Begin with sugar and wheat related foods.
If you tell your friends that you are allergic to gluten and lactose, then they won’t be offended when you turn down a meal or snack.
When you go shopping make sure that you aren’t hungry. This will reduce the temptation to buy a quick snack or anything else unhealthy.
One good strategy is to buy your food online and have it delivered. Make sure that you always have food at home so that you aren’t tempted to buy fast food.
