2. You’re not focusing enough on lean body mass
If you’re cutting calories and doing aerobic exercise, but still have fat left over, it might be a good idea to focus on lean body mass.
Increasing lean mass wakes up your resting metabolism. It also affects many different hormones in the body, such as insulin, leptin, and ghrelin.
These hormones communicate with your cells and tell them whether it’s time to store fat or release it.
