A misconception people have with cutting is that you need to make drastic changes in order to see results. People suddenly want to switch routines and go on a completely different diet. This is not necessary. In both of these pictures, I followed the exact same workout routine. I went to the gym the same number of days per week. I even ate the same exact foods. The only difference was the amount of those foods I was eating. I tracked my macros in both photos and simply ate less to achieve the second picture. There were no magic foods. No added supplements. Just simple tracking of macros and making necessary adjustments to lose 1-2 pounds per week. The process is really that simple. Having the mental discipline to stick with it is the more difficult part.
