The bodybuilding behemoth emphasized a crucial point in the 12-week program; he said during the third week that the diet doesn’t need a radical overhaul.

According to him, the magic doesn’t happen by constantly tweaking your diet but by laying a robust groundwork from day one.

For those three weeks, some are granted refeed days. However, Cutler made it clear that these are earned through steadfast commitment during the initial phase. He wisely remarked, “I find people obsess too much about changes far too soon when, in fact, what they really need is to build some momentum through ongoing consistency.”
