It was a comment that stung a bit.
I took it to suggest that the way I look was more ‘genetics’ then it was hard work and and Eat Stop Eat.
Funny thing –> It was RIGHT.
Since the conversation in question was actually about my arms, I will use then as our example:
My Arms are roughly 16 inches in circumference. That means that 80% of my arms would be 13 inches.. About the size you would expect on an untrained guy my height (5’10”) who wasn’t overly fat.
So yes, 80% is genetic, but the 20% that counts – that comes from years of hard work.
Bottom line – there are two ways of l0oking at this (both positive)
1 – It’s the last 20% that counts…and this is all that separates the successful from the unsuccessful when it comes to changing your body.
2 – Even if you haven’t done one thing to change your body, but you want to start now..don’t worry, you are already 80% of the way there.
Finally, remember that no matter what your starting 80% looks like, you can always make improvement that will impress people enough that they make comments like the one that started this post!
PS – There are 7 days in a week, and I’m asking you to fast for one or two of them…since 20% of 7 is 1.5 days, it could be said that even with diet..it’s the 20% that really counts 😉
Train more, Eat less and try Fasting for weight loss
