Stay away from food that would bulk you up. Meaning stay away from junk food and sugar. They don't necessarily get u bulk but they will increased your body fat nonstop. For the workout you need to do. You can do regular like push up pull ups and bodyweight/calisthenics. Just combine it with High intensity cardio.

No not the food just the work ethic like if you want to be buff and you always been a slim. Then you going to have to change your diet and high protein food and lift heavy weight. But if your always been an average than u still need to change your diet eat healthy and lots of cardio and calisthenics training if u want to get lean/tone. But Idk Your body type so I'm just giving u the basic.

Ya I am defs not "a slim" but I do have a fair amount of muscle mass on me. What im afraid of is getting too much as opposed to just losing the fat
