We have written an example set of meals to get you in to the correct way of thinking. This is NOT a set meal plan, just an example to give ideas of how to eat well!

Getting the right nutritional diet for you is a game of trial and error. Everyone is unique and individual. Different foods, lifestyles, sleep patterns, eating patterns and so on affect different people in different ways. Essentially, the way you lose body fat and build muscle is down to your body and genetic make-up, which can be positively affected through careful planning and getting things right – your environment! It is not nature Vs nurture, it is a sophisticated interplay between your genetics and your environment.
