How many times a day, week, month do you have clients/strangers come up to you and ask you about your nutrition? I am always surprised when I start to break down how many people I talk to about nutrition and find out those numbers range from 30-100+ a month. What advice are you giving them? Are you suggesting the Whole 30 diet? Paleo? Eating Organic? Or just marketing certain grains and vegetables that you have found work for you? Anyway you are answering this question you are helping someone else make money.

What comes in your mind when I ask you about most precious thing in your life. Your super expensive bungalow? A car? Or something other than that. But, all this are perishable. How can they be the most valuable? What if, you have big furnished home to live in, but could not enjoy? A big car but, could not drive? Why? Because, you are not good at health. Someone has well said “Health is Wealth” And it really means. You can't compare your health with any of your costly assets. Just being healthy is not enough.
A few days ago I posted a photo on my Facebook page of my lunch. I had been trying to keep my fridg stocked with pre made healthy choices, and given that I had seen a lot of photos of oreos and such recently, I wanted to share a thought of some ways one could eat quickly AND healthfully. That day I was having kale with garlic and lemon, spiced chickpeas with ginger, and brown rice with turmeric and cilantro.
The key to being the best that you can be is preplanning. Don’t just go through life by the seat of your pants. Strategize.
Book your exercise sessions like they are mandatory meetings. You will be mentally prepared to workout at your scheduled times.
Plan your routine based on the amount of time you have available. If you only have 20 minutes, maybe work on speed training. If you have more time, maybe focus on slow and steady distance. When strength training, give muscle groups 72 hours to recover.
Make a grocery list before you go food shopping. Stick to the list.
