👉Simple, sustainable weight loss tips.
🍔Would you eat a plate of grilled chicken & broccoli? I ask this when I find myself saying, “I’m starving!”; which really just means I’m craving a double SmokeShack burger from Shake Shack. Hunger can be more psychological than physical. Making small changes to your daily routine like slowing your eating can make you more aware & curb mindless eating.
🌵Eating fruits & vegetables is a great way to feel fuller without consuming a ton a calories. Eating 1lb of green beans = ~140cal vs. 1lb of French fries = ~1400cal. Buying fresh fruits & veggies every couple days can be a hassle. Packing your freezer with frozen ones makes it really easy & convenient to eat them.
🎠Sugary drinks are high in calories & not satiating at all. Water, seltzer, & even diet sodas > sugary sodas & teas. Coffee is awesome because caffeine is an appetite suppressant, it’s low in calories (if you don’t load it with cream & sugar), & it tastes great.
🐂Protein keeps you fuller for longer & your body burns more calories digesting protein than anything else. Center your meals around lean protein & avoid filling up on the 🥖 before your 🍖. I aim for 1g protein per pound of bodyweight.
🐣Don’t feel pressured to eat everything on your plate. Pack it up & save it for leftovers. Slow your eating & stop when you’re just about full, not when all the food is gone.
The truth is, MOST people GIVE UP on their dream.
Most people give up on their dream to live the average lifestyle. .
But it really doesn’t matter what most people do,
WHAT DO YOU DO?!
Because YOU are different!
YOU will NEVER GIVE UP on your DREAM!
YOU will NOT listen to the AVERAGE!
YOU WILL ALWAYS listen to the winner in you!
You WILL believe in yourself when NO ONE ELSE DOES.
YOU WILL believe in yourself when you have NO REASON to believe!
and you WILL NEVER QUIT!

Getting better show to show SHOULD happen.
▫️Each time I step on stage I’m analysing everything. From my posing & tan, to my peak week strategy & asking judges for feedback. Searching every inch to see what I can do to improve.
▪️No matter how small there are always improvements that can be made. For me it’s been slowly tapering up food & dialling in my posing. One example right here is making sure to switch on the hamstrings, which isn’t an easy feat.
▫️Too often I see competitors get complacent. Heck I did for short stints between shows. But I also see guys screwing up big time by actually looking worse show to show, often this is down to going too hard on those post show feeds.
▪️Prep is in the timeline of a bodybuilder a short period of time. I’m not going off track or plan during this time, I can eat pizza, drop cardio & chill more in my off-season. So let’s keep progressing, sitting 4 & 10 days out from two amazing British Finals.
