In part 2 of this series, I covered the fundamentals of training and physique transformation to help get you focused on the things that matter most. In this post, we explore nutrition and eating to support your training goals.
Eating is an emotive subject, much abused in the industry with terms like “clean eating” and “eating healthily”. They make sense as abstract statements, but they do little to help you translate that into practical advice.
How has something so simple as eating to meet your needs become a veritable minefield and major cause of confusion for so many people?
Bombarded with vague, misleading and sometimes purposefully incorrect information, more and more people are struggling with diet and nutrition.
There always seems to be some new diet or eating protocol to follow, and even the common sense approaches have now been sufficiently debased so as to leave the most pragmatic among us confused.
Well I’m here to help, and with this post I plan to cover:
- Energy balance
- Understanding your maintenance calories
- Food quality
- The importance of consistency
