Cutting / Leaning Out Stage
However, I feel these terms are more for bodybuilders or competitors. They usually follow bulks or off season with on season leaning out to get to very low body fat percentages for competitions! And they are veryyy strict with their diets and workout, which in my experience, when I did this, didn't turn out so well for me because I rebounded back to the beginning of my journey - same [if not more] weight, measurements, and body fat.
So instead I like to call it the
Fat Loss Stage
Healthy LifestyleI say the Healthy Lifestyle, because basically if you're living the healthy lifestyle:
Eating right, keeping consistent workouts, and being body, mind, and health conscious,
you should be losing fat because you're not stuffing it with the usual processed nasty fatty foods!
