First of all, you should start eating more. It’s good that you keep a diet, wishing to achieve a great body, but if you are starving and perform exhausting workouts at the same time, it’s just harmful for you and your body.

Eat like an athlete, few times per day. Consistency is the best medicine for your metabolic health. And don’t forget to eat natural food such as proteins, vegetables, and fibrous carbs. If you eat fast food, it only increases the risk of metabolic damage.
Train, but don’t overtrain. No doubts, you want to achieve your goals ASAP, but be patient and don’t spend enormous hours in a gym every day. It’s your body. Take care of it and don’t overtrain.
Deal with the stress. All people in this world are stressed sometimes, but if you know how to overcome it, you can achieve more. Training is a form of a physical stress for your body. Give your body some rest to recover and get adequate sleep.
