I get this question over and over again, so I thought I would share a few little tips on how to get there :) If you have any questions on any specifics, feel free to comment below <3
I also talked in circles, and really could stand to clarify a few things so watch the video below and then read the comments below!
When I said girls before were restricting and binging and then they reversed dieted was a GRAVE overgeneralization. That is not what everyone does but many times pictures are posted with calorie intake of 1000 calories and then a comparison to eating 3000 calories and they look leaner, there is most likely more to the story.
Also, you do NOT need to do a show to get lean nor have painful calorie deficit (that was a dumb statement haha) but just know that to get the "coveted abs" that normally you aren't going to be eating more. You probably need to do a cut first then reverse diet up.
Hope this clarifies that a little! I probably do better writing! haha :)
With love and abs,
