So you want to know how to lean out? Here are the two rules for getting lean and the practical tips you need to get them into action.The Leaning Out RulesWhat is the best way to lean out? This is one of the most popular questions I get and I figured we might as well address this with an article.I personally have experimented with a couple of different ways of leaning out and you'll need some extra discipline to do it, but it can be done. From my experience, these are the rules:
- Mind your nutrition. Really, you have to be on top of it. It doesn't mean that you have to obsess, count calories (of course you can, if you like) and weigh all the food you eat, but you always need to be aware of what you are eating and how much.
- Work out! This is equally important, because working out will protect the lean muscle mass you have and keep you from looking skinny and unhealthy instead of looking overweight and unhealthy.
