What is your body fat percentage?
Do you follow a strict diet or a flexible diet (e.g. IIFYM - If it fits your macros)?
How long have you been training for?
At first motivation is key but I find that once you've been doing it for a while which is relative to everyone, you'll won't need as much motivation anymore but still motivation is very key.
In my avatar I'm sitting at 9-11% but for example now during the summer months, I sit at 8-9%.
My diet is flexible to me but it might not look that way to someone else. Sunday to Friday my diet is pretty strict with an exception of a little snack usually at the end of the night, which usually consists of a little bit of chocolate around a 100 calories worth. On Saturday's I'm usually out with my fiancee, friends, and family so I tend to eat whatever I want but no fast food. I would never spend my money and feed my body garbage through places like McDonalds. If you can get your appointed proteins, carbs, and fats in your diet and you have calories left to fill then go right ahead and eat whatever makes you happy
I've been training seriously for 7 years now in terms of weightlifting but I've always been in good shape through track field, soccer, basketball, and especially martial arts.
Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu alaihi wasalam) said:
"My similitude and that of the life of this world is that of a traveler who took a rest at mid-day under a shade of a tree and then left it." (Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and al-Hakim)
