I have had the pleasure of working with awesome photographer Alex Wightman recently. Alex specialises in both fitness and fashion editorial photography and is well respected within the industry. I have a lot of respect for his work ethic and amazing talent, here is a sneak preview of our shoot………….
I’m posting this guys as I’m getting lots of questions asked about different nutrition strategies.
You’ve probably already heard of carb cycling, carb back loading, keto, paleo, high fat, high carb and the list goes on.
When someone asks me what I think about a particular diet, I am honest and tell them that no diet will ever be the same for that individual. We are all faced with different ways of storing fat. as our metabolism’s differ from person to person. Also depending if your an average person looking to get ready for your summer holidays or someone who has confidence or self esteem issues due to excessive weight problems. No two people are ever the same, so by developing a nutrition plan based on your existing food diary is the best place to start before any big modifications can be put into place, keeping account of performance and health issues whilst at work and physical activity on a day to day basis.
So when you consider what you think would work best for your body because a certain person on the internet has got amazing results doesn’t mean will do the exact same thing. It could even be disastrous to a point that it could lead to IBS symptoms due to insulin spikes from increased carbs on certain diets.
Just remember that by tracking your protein, carbs and fats you will have a better idea of what your daily targets should be.
Hit your macro-nutrient and micro-nutrient targets and everything else will fall into place.
Work to your lifestyle and not someone else’s and you will have more success in achieving your true potential.
Check out my video guys, this was shot in 2012 some unseen footage, hopefully you guys will notice the significant changes to my legs and weaker area’s.
The importance of good nutrition.
Make sure you always provide your body with the correct macronutrients and micronutrients that play a vital role in muscle building and weight management. It is important that you keep hydrated as much as possible to help flush toxins from the body and promote healthy liver function which will aid fat loss and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
