Adding too much muscle creates a generic look. When someone stays slim and lean while gaining strength, to me it makes them appear more sophisticated. Gal Gadot is a prime example. She trains almost every day, but focuses getting strong without bulking up. This allows her to look fantastic and stylish as well as being strong. I was pumped when they chose her for Wonder Woman. I believe that more women want this sort of balance, instead of looking like a CrossFit Games competitor.

For most people, losing belly fat takes 2-3 times longer than expected.... especially if you are middle-aged or beyond. A lot of my close friends are in their mid-to-late 40's. Back in college...

You almost have to think in terms of 1-2 years to reach your ideal physique.
