Even with these strategies, losing visceral fat and building a well-defined muscular body is a gradual process that takes time.

Bodybuilding.com posted an Instagram reel featuring Caylee Cooper, showcasing her one-year body transformation. At the beginning of the video, Cooper’s body is not as muscular and shredded as she desires. However, as the reel progresses, you can visibly see the changes in her physique as she gradually gains muscle.

Her quads look shredded, and she is pure muscle after one year, according to the Instagram page. According to Newsweek, Caylee Cooper used to feel insecure about her body and cellulite, but she managed to lose 80 pounds in just eight months. What’s remarkable is that she achieved this without giving up her favorite foods. Cooper shared that her weight loss journey began when a friend challenged her to a 75-day fitness challenge after previous unsuccessful attempts to shed the pounds.

In this challenge, she had to work out twice a day and drink a gallon of water every day. She said: “For this challenge, you have to take a photo every day and read 10 pages of a self-help book as well, and if you fail, you have to restart.” Since it was a grueling task, it helped Cooper gain consistency and discipline, which ultimately helped her lose weight.

She claimed, “For me, my problem was always that I lacked consistency and discipline. I didn’t mind working out and I would always go on these diets, but I would never continue with it, I would always fall off.” Cooper is also thinking of participating in a bodybuilding competition very soon. Her consistent and slow journey towards how desired physical is shown in this video, but the fans were not convinced.

A fitness enthusiast gave a detailed explanation saying, “My guess is she had been training for quite some time prior to that start of that year. Have to take that into account. Someone starting from scratch is not putting on enough muscle for that amount of definition in a single year.” Another netizen agreed with this, and wrote, “Timeline is very mistaken. Stop leading people in the wrong direction.” One person who was supportive of the transformation said, “I’m all for body transformations but all that in the space of a year, stop lying.” One individual just laughed it off and wrote, “A year😂😂.”
