Will a daily food plan be included?
This programme isn’t a one size fits all plan, so we won’t tell you what to eat and when, instead we coach you on how to develop your own daily food plan based on the information we provide and the calorific intake which is set for you personally after reviewing your statistics, photos and health questionnaire. This is an important part of the knowledge share process, which will help you understand nutrition long term. We provide example daily food plans to help you on your way but these are examples only and are not tailored to you specifically.
Can I drink Alcohol?
Ideally for optimum results the answer to this should be no! However, we live in the real world and if you have a couple of drinks here and there it won’t affect you too much if in moderation. You can’t however drink everyday or every weekend and expect great results.
What if I can’t afford or don’t want to take any supplements?
If you don’t wish to use the recommended supplements then this is perfectly ok. We only include them as they can help assist with your goals but they are certainly not the driving factor to your success. This comes from quality nutrition and hard work in the gym.
What if I have to eat out?
When eating out, assume the worst and use your common sense to assess portion sizes and estimate how many calories you will be consuming. Generally speaking, meals in restaurants have a calorific quantity, on average, 30% higher, so you can either reduce your intake earlier in the day or just eat a smaller portion when you’re out. The key is to not stress about it because elevating your cortisol levels isn’t going to help. If you have to eat out, just do it, but be sensible.
What if I don’t have an appetite to eat?
As this transformation is mainly about fat loss with lean gains, you’ll be working in a calorie deficit, so its unlikely that you won’t feel hungry, but if this does happen to you, then we may need to address it with further supplementation.
What if I over-eat one day?
If this happens, and trust me it usually does at some point, then hey, it’s done, don’t worry about it. Elevating your cortisol unnecessarily is to be strictly avoided. Try to work out how you came to overeat so if need be, you can address it the next time you see the signs. Usually it’s just a case of exercising your willpower.
Can vegetarians / vegans do the plan?
As the process for nutrition is flexible in the sense that we allow you to build your own plans based on your preferred food choices and timings then yes vegetarians and vegans can do the programme. Obviously your protein intake may be limited but there are many options available these days to make sure you can stay on target.
What if I have a food allergy?
Since you develop your own food plan this isn’t an issue. If you have a known allergy to a particular food or food group then keep this eliminated from your diet and choose another option.
