Additional (slightly more obvious) workout and diet facts:
- What works for one person might not work for you. In general terms, people will all lose weight, gain weight, burn fat and increase muscle the same way. That's just how the human body works. However, the specifics may be different. For example, your friend may lose weight eating 2,500 calories a day, but you might gain weight eating 2,500 calories a day. One person might do 12 sets for biceps and get results, and another may do just 5 and get the same results. One person might work each muscle three times a week and see results, another may work each muscle once a week and see results. The best advice I can give you is this... try something, give it some time, and closely monitor what happens. If it did what you wanted it to do, keep it. If it didn't, adjust it until it does.
- As long as your workout program is built around proven principles, it will work if it's done consistently and for a significant period of time.
