A balanced diet consisting of good quality nutrients eaten regularly helps the body function better…
… which is the goal 🥅 of any diet plan, as it allows you to make the most out of your training programme!
🙋🏽♂️ A deficit or an increase of 200-500 calories* (energy from food) is enough, if repeated consistently, to either lose or gain weight.
* 200-500 calories can be roughly the size of a meal.
Patience is the key 🔐 in reaping the rewards of a new plan, as you either have to:
🅰️ consistently stimulate muscle while adhering to good nutritional habits to help muscle grow, or
🅱️ consistently use fat as fuel during workouts to lose body fat over a period of time.
The main point is trying to eat well day in and day out to let your body absorb the nutrients it needs to:
1⃣ recover from training,
2⃣ prepare for training, or
3⃣ maintain good training intensity.

When it comes to training, mastery is what gets you results.
Impatience leads to injury, poor results and general lack of consistency. 👎🏽
Here’s an advice:
Perfect each exercise – your form, control and confidence on movements – before moving on!
Remember always: patience is key!
It may take one person a week to master a 40kg deadlift, while it may take another person 3 months. Every body is different and everyone works at different paces and get results at different rates. Certain body types are more adapted to certain exercises/movements than others.
Don’t worry! Take your time and work at each exercise till you slay it 💃🏽…
… because then you’ll be able to get sustainable results more easily than those who rush results. 😉
All of the above won’t be possible without 3 important things:
- 💤 Rest
Get enough rest to allow your body to recover from training – physically and mentally!
Don’t train super hard for a week and rest for a month. Keep the pace consistent. Progress is a slow process.
- ⏱️ Manage time
Your body is a temple, am I right? Dedicate time to it to ensure it’s physically and mentally healthy.
Manage your time well and do a bit of extra “homework” (stretches, light cardio, meal prepping…) and the results will speak for themselves.

Have fun, enjoy, make the most of it! It’s a journey – you will have ups and downs. You’re only human.
