      It still surprises me how people assume that because I’m lean I must not be able to enjoy my favourite treats. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Today’s video reveals how I am able to have a life and stay lean. For more tips download your FREE guide Lose Fat Get Jacked πŸ‘‰ https://www.losefatgetjacked.com/freeguide

        Being lean is sort of like getting rich.
        You can binge eat (or binge spend) here or there, but you’re basically already at the pinnacle that it doesn’t take long for you to recover any losses in leanness in days of binging.
        You can then fast for 24 to 48 hours and be back to where you were (or even leaner) before the binge.

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        @Viking Norse Fitness no doubt about it. Being lean and responsible with my nutrition makes it easy to bounce back after overindulging a bit.

      Hi there Scott, quick question here:
      I’m 48, currently around 20% body fat and working on (slowly but surely) getting down to 15%.
      My question is this, is it harder to GET TO 15% or MAINTAINING 15% once we reach it ? (at my age in particular)
      Great video as always, great spot to live in, no wonder you’re happy!
      Regards from Italy

        This is a fantastic question and definitely a topic that I will dive into much deeper in an upcoming video very soon. For now I will say that I don’t get caught up in the number as the body fat percentages can be very inaccurate and misleading. But in regards of getting lean and staying lean, they both can present their own challenges no matter what your age is. What I have found has made it easier is #1 experience. Each time going through a cutting phase and maintaining my weight has presented many learning opportunities. #2 When your lifestyle is the same whether you are losing fat, maintaining your weight, or building muscle with the only difference being portion sizes of your meals… it makes it much easier to transition from fat loss to muscle building. Having more calories at maintenance, makes it much easier than consuming fewer calories during a fat loss phase. Where people can struggle transitioning to maintenance is when they are way too aggressive with their calorie deficit and the moment they end their fat loss phase they can’t control themselves. The other struggle is when someone totally changes their lifestyle and way of eating when trying to lose fat and then try to go back to their old ‘normal’ way of eating. I’ll be 47 next month and it’s no harder for me to get lean and stay lean now than it was in my 20’s. If anything I find it easier now, because of the practice I’ve had.

        @Lose Fat Get Jacked Phwoah, you really did take the time to reply, I really really appreciate that! You are so right in regards to BF percentage, I shall use “lean” and “leaner” instead. Didn’t know your age until now, man with a body like this you certainly don’t look it, well done! Also kudos for your lifestyle (podcasts, thoughts and calm, long walks, animals around, active leisure etc) that’s how I live my life too and left city life 5 years ago (and never to go back!)
        Can’t wait for your video on the topic of “getting lean vs maintaining”, what you have already written certainly makes sense, practice and experience are key!
        Thanks again buddy!

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Outstanding!!! So glad to hear that you have designed a fantastic lifestyle for yourself. I’ll publish a video on this topic next Tuesday. Be on the lookout 😁 It’s a fantastic topic. Thank you so much for bringing it up.

    • Teymur G.R

      Hey coach, could you give me a hint on how to get rid of subcutaneous fat, you know that last bit of jiggly belly fat? I’m 5.8″ and hovering above 143 lbs, I look fit overall but that belly fat frustrates me to no end after trying to reduce it for a month and not seeing any change. I’d really appreciate your take on it, thanks in advance.

    • Jeff Chan

      Thanks for sharing your day with us. Impressive that you were able to not touch those chips. πŸ’ͺ I truly believe these videos are very helpful for viewers that think living an active lifestyle means you have to be extremely restrictive. That simply isn’t true. Just requires moderation and planning. Love it!

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Thanks man! I was pretty proud of myself for not eating the chips when I didn’t actually want them. No doubt about it… you can definitely enjoy your favourite treats and still get lean. I’m having a lot of fun recording these day in the life videos.

    • Manny Ramos Fitness

      Awesome VLog my friend. Keep up the great work. We don’t always hit the amount of reps set for that day. What’s important is you doing your best. Your best will always stimulate the muscle. Your intake options are on point for optimal recovery, healing and building. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Thanks my brother. I appreciate the insights and positive feedback.

    • Daren Bulley

      Thank you. I recently felt like i hit a wall in terms of fat loss, I still see plenty to lose but I weighed 249 in December and I cut out carbs and went down to 235. I started going to the gym three times a week and I was noticing change from fat to muscle but maintained 235 lbs until watching your videos. Between the free advice from you and Jeff at Athlean-X I brought carbs back into my diet and started looking at my calories and I chose 1600 calories per day. I was strict about it and lost 9 lbs in two weeks, then I went to 1400 per day and lost another 10 lbs in June, then I tried 1200 calories for July and I lost another 10 lbs but I found 1200 was stressing me out and I was feeling like I didn’t have any energy after my workout so I went back to 1400 calories at the beginning of August and I got to 205. I stayed at 205 for four days even staying strict about my calorie intake and that got me upset and my upset got me going over 1400 then I hit 207, 208 and 209….But then i pulled it together and this morning I weighed in at 204.3. I feel that every ounce I lose now is a huge achievement. I don’t know my bodyfat percentage, but I haven’t lost any strength. Everything about me is smaller, and my muscles look smaller. I think I was carrying fat in all kinds of places, and I still see fat around my midsection. Maybe fat loss does slow down after an initial drop…….I don’t know but when I am not frustrated and depressed because my I didn’t lose weight one week, I am thrilled with my progress. I love your way of “fitting in the jog” just making it happen because it is a priority. I feel that I can’t work out more than a few times a week, but I probably could manage a half hour jog daily and I don’t.

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your experiences with us and a HUGE congratulations on your achievements up to this point. You have been VERY aggressive with your calorie deficit and weight loss. I would have preferred to see you lose no more than 3 pounds per week and at this point no more than 2 pounds per week. 1400 calories is pretty darn low and not really sustainable over the long term. Overall I think you’ve experienced some great learning lessons. Have a little more patience and enjoy this ride. If jogging is a challenge, just get out of a walk or a bike ride, or any activity that you enjoy. The more you move your body, the better. Keep up the great work! Very impressive!

      • Daren Bulley

        @Lose Fat Get Jacked It’s awesome that you respond to the comments! I had thought that I needed something like 3000 calories to maintain, but I don’t think that anymore. I have been taking in 1400 and not feeling hungry. I havn’t been working out over the past two weeks unfortunately but Ive been active with my kids before they return to school on Monday and then I will be able to return to my schedule. 203.9 this morning. So close to that goal of under 200 that I feel like fasting for three days to get there, but I will eat….and take more time. It seemed impossible 8 months ago, but I can taste it now. I am nowhere near as lean as I want to be yet, but losing 50 lbs is a huge accomplishment. How can someone accurately predict how many calories to consume in order to continue getting lean?

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Well done with prioritizing what’s most important at this time… being active with your kids. Can’t beat that! That’s a fantastic question in regards to accurately predicting how many calories to consume in order to continue getting lean. I’ll go into greater detail in an upcoming video, but for now the short answer is to consistently hit a calorie target for at least a couple weeks while keeping your lifestyle exactly the same each day and paying attention to how your scale weight trends. If you find that you are losing approximately 2 pounds per week consistently, you’ve found the intake that will suit you for now. If you are losing more than that, I’d increase your intake a little bit and see how your body responds. If you’re only losing 1 pound per week consistently, then you may need to reduce your intake a bit. Losing 1-2 pounds per week should be your sweet spot at your body weight.

      Awesome vid Coach
      You know seeing someone as fit as you go through the same struggles with junk food as I do is really eye opening. It’s good to know it’s not just me, gives me strength to resist until the right times like family gatherings.

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Thank you so much for the positive feedback. I am definitely not immune to the challenges and struggles that many others face. It’s taken a lot of practice to get to this point where I can handle the situations well. And yet, I still ‘slip’ from time to time, which presents another opportunity to learn and grow.

    • Digital Gold

      what bodyfat do you clock yourself in at guy? Im just curious and to see where im at based off your leanness

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        I really don’t know and could care less to even take a guess at it. Really doesn’t matter. I’m lean and feel amazing… that’s what matters most than any number.

      • Digital Gold

        @Lose Fat Get Jacked that is not the point or what i was asking but okay. you could of easily given me a guesstimate. I understand its just a number but it was just to get an idea for my own self bodyfaty/leanness. Thanks for the quick reply either way though.
