Tune in, for all of my comp training and nutrition strategies. Just for being a member, you can keep track of what I do, when I do it and most importantly WHY I DO WHAT I DO! Without understanding the WHY, you may find you fall short of your goals without even realising it! Nothing beats consistency, hard work and focus. Many people compete but very few continue past their first show. It takes drive, determination and above all the mindset to keep going even when the going gets tough. The best advice I can give, is to NEVER, NEVER NEVER give up on your dreams. The road not travelled is full of regret, and the road you know can only take you where you’ve already been. Making an improvement in your life is as simple as making a choice. This choice is making a conscious decision to reach your goal by working towards it. For those of you who are willing to make a small contribution to yourself, each and every day, you will succeed.

RULE #1 - ALWAYS eat a LEAN source of protein at EVERY meal! 

You can get your lean protein from many different sources.  Some of these include chicken breast, lean beef, turkey, fish, kangaroo and egg whites.  Eating enough protein is VITAL for muscle growth and repair not to mention many other essential bodily functions!

Rule #2 - Always eat 5-7 meals EVERY day about 3-4 hours apart

I always eat 5-6 small meals each day in order to keep my metabolism on fire. If you skip breakfast the chances of your metabolism becoming slow and sluggish is increased significantly. I want to make sure my metabolism stays revved up and in top gear throughout the day.

Rule #3 - Eat your greens…

Try to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day as a means to help boost immune function and reduce risk for chronic disease. Remember restricting any one of the major food groups can lead to a macronutrient imbalance and corresponding vitamin and mineral deficiency.

Rule #4 - Every 9 out of 10 meals you have, has to be in your plan. 

In other words if you are eating five times per day, you would eat 35 meals per week in total. Effectively 3.5 of them can be your choice, within reason of course! I call these my junk meals, so try to find out what combination works best for you. In order to stay sane all week, I always indulge in a few small treats every second day as my reward. This does two things, keeps me sane and keeps my body guessing as to what I’m doing. This approach seems to work well for me as I really look forward to enjoying what I want. Chocolate, cheesecake and Caramel Slice … YUM!

Rule #5 - AVOID sugar and Limit your complex carbs with your last two meals unless you are active at night!
There are many schools of thought on this however there’s one that almost everyone needs to be aware of!!  SUGAR!! Hidden sugar is the number one enemy for most “saddle bag” sufferers and is a major reason why many people fall short of reaching their health and fitness goals. Read your food labels carefully and try to avoid rich sauces and fatty dressings that contain large amounts of sugar as they can be disastrous when trying to control your blood sugar levels and manage your weight. Excess consumption of simple or complex carbohydrates in the later part of the day (unless you are training) can also contribute to an energy surplus and if you are not careful ca Read More »

Rule #6 - Drink at least 500ml of water with every 10 kg of body weight
Water is my number one weight loss secret! It has no calories, sugar or fats and is a great way to quench your thirst without adding to your waistline. Many people often mistake thirst for hunger, so if you drink plenty of water throughout the day, you may need less food to keep you feeling satisfied. Not to mention, water is the only thing that will eliminate waste from your body. If you don’t keep well hydrated, your body simply cannot rid itself of those nasty toxins which inevitably end up on your thighs and hips.
