Meal 1 or Breakfast = 1 serve of each of the following C + P

Meal 2 or Lunch = 1 serve of each of the following V + C + P

Meal 3 or Dinner = 1 serve of each of the following V + C + P + EF

2. Health

Your body only needs so much exercise to reap the rewards that training has to offer.

You will improve your health from 2 days per week, you will notice a big improvement in your fitness from 3 days and once you start hitting 3 – 6 days per week plus some changes to your eating plan you will get all of the above plus some big improvements to your body composition.

You just need to decide what Healthy is to you then go out and get it.

3. Training

Training is specific…… What does this mean?

Your body will respond to the stress you place upon it.

So if you want to be a better swimmer, then you need to swim.

If you want to be a better runner, then you need to run.

If you want to get stronger in the gym then you need to start lifting weights.

Your body is highly trainable and it will adapt to the stresses you place upon it (exercise) it just needs to be suitable for you.

Don’t limit yourself and your ability by focusing on one particular type of training over another. You have 7 days of the week with plenty of time to move, it does not always have to be in the gym.

4. Responsibility

Success on any major scale
requires you to accept responsibility….
In the final analysis,
the one quality that all successful people have…
is the ability to take on responsibility.
