Eat Regularly – Make sure you eat nutritious-clean food at regular intervals throughout the day. This speeds up your metabolism and craving those naughty foods!
Drink Plenty of Water - Drinking 60 oz. of water a day is essential for everyday life. It assists with weight loss by flushing any toxins out and provides energy and recovery for your workouts!
Be Prepared – This is one of the most important tips! Planning your days eating regime ahead of time can make a world of difference! Pack your lunch with healthy snacks, fruit, veg and protein.
Exercise in the Morning – Whether its a 10min walk on the way to work or a 1 hour proper workout, any form of exercise will get blood pumping, brain working and start those natural endorphins for a positive happy day ahead.
Green Tea – Not only is it a great Antioxidant but will assist with weight loss too.
Coconut Oil - The list of benefits for eating and cooking with coconut oil are endless…. It has been described as the “Healthiest Oil on Earth”. Include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, cancer, HIV and dental care, and bone strength. (to0 name a few….)
Supplementation – Pre-Workout with Whey, Post-Workout with whey + Flaxseed oil. I also recommend taking a good Multi-vitamin, Vitamin C and Omega Oil. To support Muscle recovery Magnesium spray is a fantastic option, straight on the legs which is the best place to absorb.
Few more reasons why you should take supplements:
  • Environmental pollution – Supplements detoxify the body against pollution & boost the immune system
  • Soil depletion – Aggressive farming, use or artificial fertilizers and synthetic pesticides have caused soil depletion. As a result, nutritional values of fruits and vegetables are greatly reduced.
  • Lifestyle/Stress – Depending on lifestyle Excessive alcohol consumption & smoking can impair the body’s ability to absorb many nutrients and inhibits the production of digestive enzymes. Stress can deplete your energy, lead to acceleration of aging process and degenerative diseases.
Cleanse – I am a big believer in cleansing. This detoxifies the system allowing the body to ‘let go’ of its stored fat.
