Fitness Isn’t an Overnight Sensation

Eat Less, Exercise More, Repeat

The New York Times quotes a real life doctor who did a study to determine how long it takes to look good naked, or at least look better:
“To make a change in how you look, you are talking about a significant period of training,” Dr. Kraemer said. “In our studies it takes six months to a year.” And, he added, that is with regular strength-training workouts, using the appropriate weights and with a carefully designed individualized program. “That is what the reality is,” he said.
Which means I am already too late to get those six-pack abs by summer.
