Dieting, aka fat loss can be tough and confusing, lets end that confusion and work out what to do when you are not losing weight, have stubborn areas of fat or skin you want to work on, are stuck on a low calorie diet and don't know how to lose more fat, can't up your training intensity and lose fat at the same time, have stress as an added variable in your fat loss battle, want to know more about training for fat loss and what to do in the gym, and generally want more results than you are currently getting.
