Musclemania® America Junior Champion Brandon Flihan suggests that when dieting, you're going to look worse before you get better! He explains, "A lot of people start a diet and realize they start to look worse. You have to give your body at least two weeks to adjust! You can't expect your body to do exactly what you tell it to exactly when you tell it to. If that's the way it worked everyone would have a great physique. Usually when I hit the pose I have veins raging through my back. Stick with the plan and kill it! It pays off in the end."
