CarbsFirst I want to start this blog post with a confession….YES, I was one of those guys that would do what most of us have done when wanting to lose weight, I cut carbs in an attempt to lose the excess lbs and yes, it worked for a time. I was at a stage where I was uneducated about nutrition and thought that a healthy lunch was a yogurt and orange. Fast forward in time and I am now of a totally different mindset and will even have a carb heavy meal right before I go to bed (I will explain why later). So, let’s get to it….

Goal PlanIf you don’t already have a goal – now is the time to get one. We should all have a goal, whether it’s to be a genius like Albert Einstein, a good basketball player like Michael Jordan or to have the booty of Beyoncé, the point is that we need to have a goal and we should continuously strive to achieve it.  But… as easy as it is to set a goal, discarding it is even easier!

RoutinePlanning and preparing a weekly ‘routine’ is considered a fairly easy task, anybody could do it; the tough part comes with actually implementing it! Think about routines you have attempted to put in place within your life – this could be academic, financial or even dietary based! Have you succeeded before? Or do you always find yourself ‘falling off the wagon’ after just a few days?



VegetablesA vegetable, is broadly defined as “any plant cultivated for the edible part of it such as the leaves, roots, fruit or flowers but which excludes any plant considered to be a grain, spice or fruits.” Their consumption is vital in order for us to get adequate amounts of essential vitamins, minerals, macronutrients and water. Are you ready to veg out? 

FatsOver the past few years we’ve been told to eat low-fat, high-fat, no-fat and moderate-fat within our daily diet. It’s no surprise we are all a little confused! One thing should be made clear – fat is not the enemy!


PlanNutrition is key when it comes to achieving your health, body and fitness goals. Making sure that your nutrition plan reflects the goals that you are looking to achieve is vital for success.

eating saladIt’s common knowledge that we should all take the time to eat more slowly. It aids digestion, hydration, weight loss and gives you a greater enjoyment from your meals – whereas if you wolf down your meals without thought, your digestion along with your overall health and wellbeing will suffer.

CarbsCarbs, carbs, carbs! Everybody’s favourite macronutrient and the first thing that we try to reduce when dieting! But is it right to have carb fear? Do you know how much to eat and of which type?

Exercise Chin UpHypertrophy is defined as an increase in the size or volume of our body organs or tissues/muslces. Some people refer to this as ‘getting toned’. The best way to achieve hypertrophy is through resistance or weight training – but there is more to this than simply mindlessly throwing dumbbells about for an hour in the gym once a week. If like the majority of the population, you want a trim, toned and tight physique then follow these guidelines and get more bang for your buck when it comes to your workout:
