If you are training hard in the gym for your sport you might be putting all the hard work in jeopardy if you decide that you need to lose weight at the same time
What people tend to do when they realize this is to cut the amount of food they are eating, or the amount of calories they are consuming
This can be pretty disastrous for the body, as you are then causing major disruptions to your hormones
Hormones are basically the control station for the body. Pretty much everything we do and think are controlled by the state of our hormones. They are what needs to be thought about first when it comes to weight loss, and health in general

Give it a go, not only will fat drop off, you will start to feel better than ever
