Hi folks,

How’s everyone keeping…I hope you’re all blessed and enjoying the summer.

I wanted to talk a little about Nutrition today as it seems to be a topic we all discuss and one that is very important seeing as eating is apart of our everyday lives and helps with our minds, body and overall well being.

Now everything to do with Nutrition cannot be covered in one post as there’s so much areas to go over, however, what I am going to discuss is Nutrition on a broad scale and how it will help you transform your body into something you’re happy with.

Firstly, when eating with a goal in mind, you need to ask yourself if what you’re eating is going to help with the goals that you’ve set yourself.

If you’re aiming to drop 8lbs but pigging out on chocolate everyday, be honest with yourself, is that going to help you reach your goal?

The same if you’re trying to pack on muscle…Are you eating enough food and getting in the right amount of protein, carbs and fat to help with the gym work? Again, be honest with yourself.

A lot of people enter this game half heartedly for 12 weeks and wonder why they never see results. They get ticked of and cancel there gym memberships only to return a Christmas later and 1 stone heavier (if not more) and repeat the whole cycle again..

A guy actually told me the other day that he reached a plateau and I laughed. A plateau is where you’ve been putting in the work for a period of time and the results slow down as your body get’s used to the training/diet regime forcing you to mix things around to get back on track again.

The reason I laughed is because this guy drinks every weekend and cheats on his diet whenever he wants to and has the nerve to say he’s reached a plateau, get real!

Some folks have this fitness thing all twisted but I’m here to untwist things shall I say LOL.

When you know what is right from wrong and still do the wrong thing it’s different to someone who actually doesn’t know right from wrong in the first place.

I use this example for when it comes to food choices. Some people like the idea of having low body fat…They say they want low body fat but they don’t really want it because if they did they would do what it takes to get there.

I understand it’s hard, I live this life…But hard isn’t an excuse anymore…

Studying is hard…1 hour cardio 5x a week is hard…Training abs is hard…Eating clean for 20 weeks is hard…A four year degree is hard…Being a single Mum/Dad is hard, but guess what…people still make it happen and push through. So what is your REAL excuse…Some food for thought right there.

Call it tough love… I’ve realised people need to hear it how it is rather than some washed down version. A lot of folks are lazy and can’t be bothered to put the work in. If your circumstances are harsh for whatever reason then fair enough and this doesn’t apply to you.

Eating right isn’t easy and the Government don’t make it any better by allowing junk food eateries to be put all over the place. Organic food isn’t cheap so this leaves people eating foods from the super market which is standard quality but not great either, again, let’s be honest.

Food prep is a art and a skill within itself and once you master it your 50% there. Preparing your food ahead of time puts you ahead of time – Ahead of the time when you’re out for a quick lunch and find your only options are Subway, Mc Donalds, PIzza Hut or that 99p chicken shop – You deserve better than that! Find time and prepare your food ahead of time! Develop that skill and art if you haven’t already.

50% Nutrition, 25% training and 25% rest.

Really and truly you want to give everything 100% but hopefully by breaking it down like this you see how important eating right is. It took me 3 years to finally come to this conclusion and it will take some a lot longer as there not willing to open up to concrete facts and evidence (maybe they know the truth deep down but also know how hard it is to make the change so they choose to live in denial…who knows?)

Eating healthy isn’t boring (who lied to you) and it isn’t necessarily that expensive either to be honest (A lot cheaper than pre-made and fast foods that’s for sure – Don’t believe me though, go calculate and see for yourself…you save money prepping your own food and know what you’re eating for sure)

Another thing is supplements…You girls are just as bad as the guys…If your diet isn’t right….

NO SUPPLEMENT IS GOING TO WORK FOR YOU

NO SUPPLEMENT IS GOING TO WORK FOR YOU

NO SUPPLEMENT IS GOING TO WORK FOR YOU

Save your money and get your diet right first. Don’t get me wrong, supps are great, BUT ONLY IF YOUR DIET IS IN CHECK. You can’t be eating chicken tika masala, keema rice, naan bread and onion bargie whilst taking a fat burner and expect to see results LOL. It does make me laugh but some people genuinely don’t know better which is why I’m here to help y’all.

With the whole supp thing, look at it like this…Eat good at 67% and train at 67% and a supp will work at that same percentage to help you. Keep it 100 and the supp will keep it 100, simples!

Like I said before, I know it isn’t easy. If it was everyone would be looking sexy on the beach ;-)…But you just gotta make that choice and say to yourself:

“You know what, I know I can do this…I’m gonna do it and give it 100% and ain’t noboddy stopping me” and you see from when you’ve made that choice…

The rest is history

It’s great to be back and I catch you soon

PEACE

  1. I love this blog. Everything you said is so true. As a Vitamin manager I deal with people daily that want the latest and greatest Dr. Oz fat loss wonder pill. They have not made the commitment to do the work, and I tell them as much. Supplements have their place. But they will not do the work for you.

      Thank you for your kind words, much appreciated. Very true, people are after that magic pill which doesn’t exist. If it’s not that, then it’s some crazy 500kcal diet. Education and hard work is the way forward. D

  2. Thanks for sending my way. Great read! I will share.
