Unfortunately, dishonest fitness professionals and internet weight loss scams promise extreme results in ridiculous time frames and have created unrealistic expectations for everyone.
The truth is that most people who start an exercise and nutrition regimen won’t notice significant improvements in their physique until about 2 months into it. That, of course, will depend, among other things, on your genetic makeup, current fitness level, past training experience and adherence to the exercise and nutrition program.
Our best advice is to try to focus on short term behaviors and goals such as not missing workout sessions, eating veggies and protein with every meal, getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night, and so on. If you do that, then the results will take care of themselves.
