14 Day Challenge Questions: How Much Weight Will I Lose During the Challenge?
We really don’t know exactly how much you will lose as everyone has a different body, age, metabolism, digestive system and hormones.
Not only will you be dropping inches but you will feel stronger, slimmer and have more energy. And remember that muscle is denser than fat, and takes up less space - so as you lose fat and add muscle, that is exactly why you won't always see the number on the scale going down super fast all the time.
Results and fat loss will happen so much faster when combining it with the right healthy food so make sure you grab the nutrition plan to assist you.
We suggest measures and photos during the 14 days to track progress.
